FY11 Eliminating Lupus Health Disparities Initiative (ELHDI): The purpose of the ELHDI is to eliminate lupus related health disparities through improvement in training and education of medical, nursing, and allied health students, and practicing health care professionals regarding the early diagnosis, treatment, and management of lupus and its associated effects on health and quality of life among affected racial and ethnic minority populations. This purpose will be accomplished by funding one entity that will be responsible for: (1) developing, testing, and disseminating lupus educational and training curricula, tools, and other resources; (2) identifying and recruiting a variety of medical, nursing, and allied health professions schools to participate in this effort; 3) working collaboratively with partners to promote the adoption and use of ELHDI resources (e.g., curriculum and curriculum components, and related tools and resources, and materials); 3) maintaining a lupus consortium to help guide and inform the achievement of overall purpose and goals of ELHDI. In addition to promoting curriculum change in schools, achieving the ELHDI purpose also will require the applicant organization to work closely with the consortium of experts to develop, test, and disseminate the curriculum through variety of strategies directed at practicing health care professionals, including live and on-line meetings, webinars, and satellite conferences). Physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses and other allied health related professionals will be targeted to receive lupus educational materials and information.
