Tools and Resources to Optimize Care for Residents of Public Housing

Oct 09, 2018  02:00 PM  EST

In order to enhance care for patients who are residents of public housing, health centers must understand the unique needs of their patient population, collaborate with community partners, and promote opportunities to expand programming for patients and their families. 

Registration for this Learning Collaborative is now full. Please check our Upcoming Webinars section for more learning opportunities.

Participants in this free virtual learning collaborative will attend four (4) learning sessions. These learning sessions will be hosted from October through December 2018. Each learning session will be an hour in length and will require pre and post work. Each session will take place from 2 - 3 pm ET. Participants are eligible to receive one (1) CME/CNE credit per module. Up to four (4) credits are available.

Since 2014, all health centers must report the number of patients served at health centers located in or accessible to public housing on the UDS report (table 4, line 26). This requires an assessment of a health center’s accessibility to public housing and provides an opportunity for health centers to support the unique needs of residents of public housing
both inside and outside the clinic walls.

The National Nurse-Led Care Consortium is convening a learning collaborative of health center staff to elucidate strategies and best practices to optimize health center programming to meet the unique needs of residents of public housing.
