Acute Care & Trauma Surgery / Surgical Critical Care
IPC Lecture Series
The IPC Lecture Series aims to provide physicians with information about injury prevention. It will introduce Emergency Medicine faculty, residents, and the community of interest to injury surveillance data, intervention strategies (particularly those based in clinical settings), risk assessments, and policy changes in areas including opioid overdose, older adult falls, motor vehicle trauma, and concussion, among others. Lectures will be provided by clinicians, researchers, epidemiologists, and public health program directors. Though embedded in the Emergency Medicine Department’s resident training program, the series is open to the BMC campus and public health practitioners throughout the greater Boston area.
Please join us for an upcoming presentation titled “Text messaging to support patients who over-utilize the emergency department: Augmenting a novel chronic pain management program for Medicaid patients” given by Elizabeth Donovan, PhD and Traci Green, PhD on November 14, 2015 at 10:15am located at 650 Albany Street in room 714.
By the conclusion of the meeting participants will be able to:

2. Describe a patient-centered approach to intervention development
3. Summarize key stakeholder beliefs about a novel pain management program offered to Medicaid patients who are high emergency department utilizers
