National Health Education Program on Lupus for Healthcare Providers (NHEPLHP)

Project: Research project

Project Details


There is documented need for training primary care and emergency room providers on the frontlines of care to recognize, diagnose, refer, and treat lupus patients. The Lupus Initiative was developed in response to this need. Rheumatology Fellows and Junior Faculty can deliver this much needed in person peer training using customized Lupus Initiative materials: • An effective use of funds already invested in the Lupus Initiative • Puts resources in the hands of those most in need • Enhances knowledge and skills of Rheumatology Fellows and Junior Faculty • Targets major urban centers with populations at highest risk for lupus - The Lupus Research Institute has discussed this model with several leading Rheumatologists in major urban centers who are interested in collaborating. The proposed training initiative is a comprehensive, collaborative, low-cost, and sustainable program to work with networks of community-based healthcare providers to achieve the intent of The Lupus Initiative; alleviating racial and health disparities in lupus.
