Adult Nurse Practitioner
My current responsibilities include managing the care of rheumatic patients in a rheumatology clinic averaging approximately 17 patients a day. I also make patient referrals, order diagnostic tests, and order DMARDS/Biologics for specific rheumatic diseases. Our clinic acts as an osteoporosis treatment clinic where I assess, diagnose, and treatment this condition. I also coordinate the quality assurance in the clinic, perform chart audits, manage emergency treatment for infusion reactions, and act as sub-investigator for clinical trials.
