SCDAA Peer-to-Peer Mentor Application
Welcome to the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America, Inc. Peer Mentor Program! The goal of the program is to provide support to individuals who are completing the transitional phase from pediatrics to adult care. The program consists of 1-on-1 phone calls and/or text messages that will focus on healthy living with sickle cell disease. The program will use the web-based Mentor1to1 platform and associated PeerMentor smartphone app to track the program progress and view additional content related to the mentees to help deliver the program.
Training will include:
InquisitHealth has been contracted to design and maintain the training program for this project. The mentor's training will be completed through InquisitHealth online e-learning course on a website called Peer Mentor University. These web-based training modules will cover the basics of sickle cell disease, transitioning into adult care, pain management, reducing complications, and medication management. In addition to providing detailed information about the mentor program, platform, and mentoring strategies, the training will include the following:
- A 15 minute orientation module that will provide an overview of how the program works.
- 2 Standardized Patient Activities (mock patient calls) with a program coordinator to experience what it’s like to mentor someone living with sickle cell disease.
- Peer Mentor University: E-training that will include a series of educational modules that will cover the basics of sickle cell disease, coaching strategies, platform tutorials, and HIPAA compliance. This will take ~8 - 10 hours to complete.
