JHSON Virtual Nursing Grand Rounds: Disparities in Pain Management and the Impact on Mental Health

The Johns Hopkins School of Nursing in partnership with the Johns Hopkins Nurses' Alumni Association, will offer a monthly Virtual Nursing Grand Rounds Continuing Nursing Education Series, providing an educational program led by top researchers from around the world.

In celebration of Reunion Weekend, we will offer our Virtual Nursing Grand Rounds as a dual in-person and livestreamed event! We are excited to have Dr. Janiece Taylor, the Katey Ayers and Humberto Ortega Rising Professor, discuss Disparities in Pain Management and the Impact on Mental Health. Dr. Taylor will identify contributing factors to these disparities, describe the relationship between pain and mental health in adult populations within the U.S, and explain considerations for clinicians, researchers and policy makers concerning pain management within the U.S. health care system. Join us in person in the auditorium of the Pinkard Building or via livestream here.

The Virtual Nursing Grand Rounds Series will offer attendees one free education credit upon completion of a post-event quiz after each session, with the goal of fulfilling the JHSON’s mission of providing lifelong learning for health care professionals within the community. 

The Virtual Nursing Grand Rounds Series is sponsored by the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing Center for Cardiovascular and Chronic Care, and the Johns Hopkins Nurses' Alumni Association. The Center for Cardiovascular and Chronic Care works to significantly reduce cardiovascular health disparities through community engagement, scientific investigation, education, and policy initiatives. The Johns Hopkins Nurses' Alumni Association builds upon the foundation laid by generations of Hopkins nurses, sponsoring programs, preserving history and connecting alumni.
