Transcending Principles of Street Medicine and Its Role in Healing

May 17, 2019

Presented by Brett Feldman, MSPAS, PA-C

The fundamental approach of Street Medicine is to engage people experiencing homelessness exactly where they are and on their own terms to maximally reduce or eliminate barriers to care access and follow-through. This lecture will describe the fundamental principles of street medicine and its role as an instrument of peace to an excluded population. How to maximize provider scope of practice and patient outcomes will be discussed, as well as practical approaches to care in specific disease processes.
