TERI Browne, PhD
Social Work and Kidney Disease: Improving Outcomes and Parity
Light lunch will be served starting at 11:30 am. CEU fee payable at the door: $5. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
Dialysis and kidney transplant centers are the only Medicare-mandated practice settings that require a master’s level social worker on every interdisciplinary team. Accordingly, nephrology social workers play a critical role in helping patients address psychosocial barriers to treatment outcomes and parity. Browne will present her scholarship in this area and discuss her work as a social work researcher in the areas of kidney transplant disparity. She will describe her innovative theoretical approach that includes attention to patients’ social networks as critical factors in transplant parity, and present social work practice suggestions for improving such parity.
Teri Browne, PhD, is an associate professor at the University of South Carolina College of Social Work. She earned her master of social work at the State University of New York at Buffalo and her PhD at the University of Chicago. Browne worked as a medical social worker for 13 years and is an internationally recognized expert on nephrology social work and psychosocial barriers to chronic disease outcomes. Browne is the editor of the Handbook of Social Work (1st & 2nd editions, Mandarin & Korean translations) and co-directs the interprofessional education committee for health sciences at the University of South Carolina.Find out more »
