We all know that the best way to improve practice and inspire each other in our work is through sharing stories of tackling tough topics, identifying hidden risks, and making a difference. Take a moment to learn from one of your peers…
Read our latest RAAPS success story:
An 8th grader came to the clinic for an acute visit. He disclosed having problems with peers in school. Upon completion of RAAPS, he revealed that he thought he might be gay and did not have an adult who he could confide in. The review by the Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) allowed him to express his feelings and fears of others knowing. Furthermore, the FNP was able to discern and assess the anxiety presented and connected him to the clinic social worker. This led to him connecting to further positive support systems.
Do you utilize RAAPS and have a story you would like to share? Please continue to send in your experiences and share your story. You can access this feature on our website in the “Tell Us Your Story!” tab on the right hand side. Your stories will be shared in future RAAPS communications (anonymously of course) for others to learn from and be inspired by. We believe the best of best practices come directly from our peers!
