Spokes for Our Folks: Public Health Bike Tour

Spokes for Our Folks: Public Health Bike Tour Nearly half of medical care in the United States is managed through the emergency department, a large portion of which could be managed by “lateral” health services provided by public health facilities like human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) prophylaxis, alcohol and drug treatment programs, emergency psychiatric resources, and medical respite or rehabilitation centers. These options may be underutilized due to lack of knowledge of their services and demographics by patients and health care workers alike. We aimed to educate all levels of emergency medicine trainees and staff to citywide services via bike tour. Participants reported an improved understanding of health services as well as a sense of “camaraderie” toward lateral health services and other providers on the rides. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png AEM Education And Training Wiley

Abstract

Nearly half of medical care in the United States is managed through the emergency department, a large portion of which could be managed by “lateral” health services provided by public health facilities like human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) prophylaxis, alcohol and drug treatment programs, emergency psychiatric resources, and medical respite or rehabilitation centers. These options may be underutilized due to lack of knowledge of their services and demographics by patients and health care workers alike. We aimed to educate all levels of emergency medicine trainees and staff to citywide services via bike tour. Participants reported an improved understanding of health services as well as a sense of “camaraderie” toward lateral health services and other providers on the rides.
