Make Your Patient's Treatment Preference Known

When They Can't

The Crisis Navigation Project is a collaborative effort between Southern Regional AHEC, Duke University Medical Center, and NAMI – NC. The primary goal of the project is to promote the use of psychiatric advance directives (PADs).

PADs have been around for years, but they aren’t often used in clinical settings. We offer training designed to:

  • Increase familiarity with PADs and how they can be helpful
  • Recruit and train individuals to help facilitate the creation of PADs using a method developed by a Duke research team
  • Assist providers and hospitals in knowing how to develop and respond to PADs, and how to incorporate them in quality care

This project is based at Southern Regional AHEC and Duke University School of Medicine, and is funded by a grant from The Duke Endowment. Training will be offered in Mecklenburg, Durham, Wake and Cumberland counties between May 2017-December 2019.
