Health and Housing - Best Practices in Health Center and Public Housing Authority Partnership
Thursday, March 29, 2018, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EST
Category: Webinar

Since 2014, all health centers must report whether or not they are located in or are accessible to public housing on the UDS report (table 4, line 26). This requirement necessitates an assessment of a health center’s accessibility to public housing, but it also prompts health center staff to consider the ways in which patients who are residents of public housing are engaged and cared for both within and outside of the clinic walls. 

In order enhance care for patients who are residents of public housing, health centers need to assess their patient population, work with community partners, and seek opportunities to expand programming for patients and their families. The National Nurse-Led Care Consortium (NNCC) is convening a learning collaborative of health center staff to elucidate strategies and best practices to address the needs of residents of public housing. 

AUDIENCE 

Healthcare staff: QI Managers, Chief Operating Officers, Chief Executive Officers, Chief Program Officers

Participants in the virtual learning collaborative will attend 4 learning sessions. These learning sessions will be hosted from February through April 2018. Each learning session will be an hour in length and will require pre and post work. Each session will take place from 12 pm - 1 pm EST. 

MODULE 3: HEALTH AND HOUSING - BEST PRACTICES IN HEALTH CENTER AND PUBLIC HOUSING AUTHORITY PARTNERSHIP

NNCC will facilitate a webinar that elucidates promising practices in health center/public housing authority partnerships. Participants will assess current partnerships and map community resources and stakeholders in an effort to enhance services for patients who are residents of public housing.
