VBCR - December 2015, Volume 4, No 6 - Value Propositions

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has announced that The Lupus Initiative (TLI) will be given a 5-year grant to help fund programs designed to increase knowledge and awareness of systemic lupus erythematosus among primary care practitioners and people with as yet undiagnosed lupus as well as rheumatology healthcare providers. TLI was created in 2009 when the Department of Health & Human Services chose the American College of Rheumatology to provide educational programs about lupus.

The 3 main objectives of the newly funded program will be to distribute existing educational materials to organizations nationwide; to produce an awareness campaign focused on recognizing signs and symptoms of lupus; and to create, during the first year, pilot programs of community-based activities for selected communities.

For rheumatologists and other healthcare professionals, existing materials include continuing medical education programs, a free 10-credit maintenance of certification module, and several resources for physicians to provide to their patients.
