As part of our three-pronged mission, RIS has been on the forefront of sarcoma cancer educational initiatives, building new programs and tools to support faster and more accurate diagnoses with the end goal of improving patient outcomes. We are currently working on a pilot program to educate primary care professionals through live presentations and digital education programs. Our innovative work includes: Patient Starter Education Notebook, Jan Maudlin Sarcoma Scholars, Red Flags Materials for Medical Professionals and the public, videos on sarcoma and now software development to support faster, accurate sarcoma diagnosis through Best Practice Alerts (BPA) and Electronic Medical Record (EMR) systems.
These programs have been conceived and executed by our Red Flags Education Committee, the RIS Medical Advisory Board, and our Hallie Ann Brown Educational Initiative.
The RIS Board of Directors has recommended expanding the previous part-time Health Programs Coordinator position to a full time Education and Communications Manager. The person selected will work closely with the Red Flags Education Committee, the Rein in Sarcoma Medical Advisory Board, the Maudlin Sarcoma Scholars, and the Public Relations and Marketing Committee.
