NCCHCA Webinar Series: Organizational Self-Care
Jul 26 all-day

Self-Care Series: Taking Care of Ourselves So We Can Take Care of Others
Presented by Health Outreach Partners

Outreach workers provide crucial services where individuals live, work, and spend time. They often take on many roles, which can leave them susceptible to burnout due to long work hours, prioritizing others’ needs over their own, and being a witness to the challenges and traumas that their communities experience. For health centers, it is important to promote and implement self-care practices within the workplace in order to recruit and retain staff, as well as foster a healthy and supportive work environment. This two-part series will provide an overview of self-care, including the various types of strategies that can be effective at the individual and organizational level.

Part Two: Organizational Self-Care
In part two, HOP will address organizational self-care – a broad organizational approach to foster a healthy and supportive work environment that can reduce burnout and improve staff satisfaction and retention. The presenters will demonstrate the importance of organizational self-care for the sustainability of health centers, explain concepts around compassion fatigue and burnout, and propose strategies to support organizations in establishing a culture of self-care.

Learning Objectives:
• Participants will understand and be able to define the concept of organizational self-care;
• Participants will learn about the benefits of aligning organizational policies and practices with self-care principles; and
• Participants will identify at least one self-care practice to implement at the organizational level.

NCCHCA Webinar Series: Outreach to the LGBT Community
Aug 23 all-day

Outreach to the LGBT Community
Presented by The Fenway Institute (National LGBT Health Education Center)

Healthy People 2020 and the Institute of Medicine have identified key health disparities faced by the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) population. Engagement of LGBT populations is critical to providing culturally responsive care and population based health to reduce these disparities. In spite of the advancements in LGBT acceptance and policy, many LGBT people remain largely invisible to their primary care providers. This webinar will present best practices in outreach to the LGBT community, including: strategies for engagement of local LGBT community members and organizations; effective communication with LGBT people; strategies for sexual orientation and gender identity data collection; and creating an inclusive and affirming health care environment for LGBT patients, families, and staff.

Learning Objectives:
• Participants will be able to describe LGBT concepts, terms, and health disparities;
• Participants will identify strategies for proactive outreach to and engagement of local LGBT residents, leaders, organizations;
• Participants will understand how to incorporate SO/GI data collection into your EHR to improve communication, quality care, and data and quality management activities; and,
• Participants will identify ways to develop policies, forms, processes, and physical spaces within the health care environment that are inclusive and affirming of the LGBT community.

The workshop is a comprehensive orientation to the migrant health program in the U.S. The workshop will cover the history of agricultural migration, the structure of migrant health program, and the people and organizations that make migrant health care possible.

Workshop: Applying Transportation Solutions to Address Missed Appointments & Improve Access to Care: Findings from the Rides to Wellness Community Scan Project

Midwest Stream Forum for Agricultural Worker Health
Tuesday, September 19, 2017
10:30AM – 12:00PM EDT

Transportation is essential for access to and utilization of care; yet, transportation barriers persist for many communities, including agricultural workers. For health centers, missed medical appointments cause a disruption of care, impact clinical outcomes, and result in a loss of revenue. In this workshop, HOP will provide an overview of the findings from the National Missed Appointments and Transportation Barriers Survey, including the scope of the problem and the costs associated with missed medical appointments. In addition, HOP will provide concrete examples from community-based organizations that demonstrate the financial benefits of investing in transportation initiatives. In a small group activity, participants will use a quality improvement tool to measure the costs of missed appointments and find patient-centered solutions to transportation barriers.

WORKSHOP: Enhancing the Delivery of Care: The Promotor(a) de Salud/CHW Role on Clinical Care Teams

Midwest Stream Forum for Agricultural Worker Health
Tuesday, September 18, 2017
1:30PM – 3:00PM EDT

By 2030, the number of Americans living with one or more chronic conditions is expected to rise to 163 million people. Navigating the health care system can be challenging for individuals with chronic conditions, particularly those who also face cultural and linguistic barriers, such as agricultural workers. Community-based outreach efforts through Promotores(as) de Salud/Community Health Workers (CHWs) have achieved documented success in improving health outcomes for agricultural workers. During this workshop, Health Outreach Partners and MHP Salud will present the benefits of including CHWs as members of the clinical care team and provide strategies and tools that Health Centers can use to accomplish this. Case studies and group discussion will be used to illustrate how CHWs can successfully be integrated into clinical care teams.
