Megan, RN, BSN
Nurse Case Management
Duties: Nurse Case Management through the Part C program offers assistance with medication adherence, side effect management, nutritional services, specialty referrals (i.e. ophthalmology, dental, psychological), etc. as well as education regarding HIV and the disease process. I attend physician appointments and assist with referrals, follow up care, appointment reminders, etc. I spend a lot of time going through lab results in relation to medication adherence. I teach those I work with about their disease, medications, and offer support in whatever area is needed.
Duties: Case Management through the Part C program offers the assessment of client needs, especially focused on the most basic needs of food, shelter, etc. I make referrals to other agencies based on the individual needs of each client. I work closely with nurse case management to ensure the patient is receiving cost effective health care and support services.
Duties: A portion of my time is dedicated to working with the Part C Program as the program coordinator. It is my job to make sure the program is delivered effectively and within the requirements outlined by the funder (HRSA). I write the annual grant proposal and work closely with our staff and stakeholders to ensure we are providing care that is evidence-based and person-centered, as well as within the scope of the grant.
Case management services are available for all clients applying to the Part C EIS Program. Case management can help clients access available services from such programs as Medicare, Medicaid, Ryan White Part B Program, drug manufacturer patient assistance programs, outpatient mental health and chemical dependency programs, outpatient nutritional services and translator services. Case managers are also available to help with adherence education for clients on HAART therapy and patients who are considering beginning therapy.
