Southern Regional AHEC is working with Paula Tanabe, Ph.D., RN, FAEN, FAAN and her group at Duke to provide an educational event on April 26. This inter professional event is designed for emergency physicians, nurses, mid-level providers, and social workers who work with the sickle cell patient in the emergency department. Using an interactive case study approach, participants will learn comprehensive approaches to identify stigma, use the new VOC tool, access centralized case management system, additional resources available, and provide best practice care for the sickle cell patient in the emergency department. The education provided will be beneficial for emergency departments wishing to send a team to the education (MD, mid-level provider, Nurse, Social Worker) or individual practitioners who are interested in attending. Multiple Credits are being provided for the event.
