Janet Pearce Multiple Sclerosis Nurse Education Program 2013Date: - Time: -
This program is designed for all nurses who would like to expand their knowledge in this rewarding field of MS nursing. During the two day course, nurses will learn from experts in the field through lectures, case presentation and panel discussions, along with networking opportunities. Health professionals in other disciplines are welcome and may find the program to be informative in their practice as well.
It is an exciting time for MS nursing. New treatments and management options, as well as research advances, emerge on a regular basis. MS nurses can have a significant impact on their patient’s lives – a career in MS nursing offers immeasurable professional satisfaction and ongoing educational opportunities.
The program was established in 2001 by Janet Pearce, a volunteer, fundraiser, and chapter member. Janet’s interest in educating nurses in the field of MS evolved from her own concerns as a patient, and her first-hand experience as one who values the nurse-patient relationship. Janet will address program attendees during the luncheon.
The overall goal of this program is to present a comprehensive overview of multiple sclerosis throughout the lifespan and interdisciplinary care related to each life stage —children and teens, young and middle aged adults, and the older adult — as well as recent advances in research and recently approved treatments, motivational interviewing strategies, rehabilitation and wellness approaches to care and family/caregiver issues.
