RNPA Intensive - Learning Experience

“In a year’s time after taking the RNPA Learning Intensive, my career, my health, my family, my very life has been transformed. I am forever grateful” — Karen DiMarco, RN, iRNPA

“The way of the future of nursing...an absolute must if you want to make and be the difference in righting the wrongs of healthcare. Kare is a wonderful mentor who has put her soul into this program. Passion, Vision, Perseverance.” — Lana Benton, RN, iRNPA

“The forethought, experience, openness, philosophy and preparation provides all the tools, thought process, and confidence to begin and succeed as an iRNPA.” — Leta Gill, RN, iRNPA

“My experience attending the iRNPA program was a refreshing one, to say the least. This program was packed with life changing information that is not readily taught or available to RN's. This program equipped me with the tools I need to be an iRNPA!  If you are ready for a change after working for many years in the clinical setting, and are driven to help patients and families, this is the program for you!  Karen is a wealth of knowledge that is unmatched in the advocacy process.” — Jamie Long

“Thank you so much for putting together such an incredible RN PA intensive course!  It is truly intensive but so worth it!  I learned a lot and will be using the Medical Time Line and lab spreadsheet with as many clients as i can.  All great information and can’t wait to get my speaking engagements lined up now that I have your fantastic power points!” —  Nan Wetherhorn, Health Care Advisor, www.healthcareadvisornan.com

Medical Errors are now the 3rd leading cause of death in the US according to a study by Dr. John T. James published in the Journal of Patient Safety.  The study in the Journal of Patient Safety disclosed that between 210,000 and 440,000 patients each year in the hospital “suffer some form of preventable harm that contributes to their death”. 

The single most important thing to remember when faced with a health crisis is that you need to be an active part of your healthcare team.

Your healthcare decisions need to be made with you not for you! You can do this by educating yourself about your illness and your treatment options. When you are an active member of your healthcare team, your results will improve.

One excellent site to begin to understand the illness you have is www.nih.gov (National Institute  of Health). That site will also link to others equally helpful.

Remember that no one treatment is right for everyone. We are all different with unique needs, belief structures, cultures and spiritual values.


 

Thinking of engaging an independent RN Patient Advocate? 

Consider this:

  • Are your health care providers listening to you?  Do you feel like a number as you go from doctor to doctor?

  • Has poorly coordinated care or lack of attention to detail left you vulnerable to medical error?

 

  • Adverse drug reactions cause the death, hospitalization, or serious injury of more than 2 million people in the United States each year, including more than 100,000 fatalities*

 

  •  Learn about your medications and their potential risks with your iRNPA.

 

  • The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) reports that 10-30% of diagnoses are incorrect.

An iRNPA by your side ensures that YOU, are the central focus of your healthcare. Working collaboratively with all your doctors, your iRNPA ensures the safest and most effective treatments possible for you.

You will become an active and knowledgeable participant in your own care. This tremendously improves your safety and chances of the best outcome within the medical system. Call or email us to find the closest iRNPA near you.
