Diabetes Continuum of Care: Using the CHW and Enabling Services Workforce to Address Social Determinants of Health and Diabetes
April 23, 2019
8am - 9:30am HT / 11am-12:30pm PT / 1pm-2:30pm CT / 2pm-3:30pm ET
Diabetes affects more than 30 million people in the United States. Multi-tiered efforts to prevent, treat and manage diabetes are critical in reducing the burden of diabetes, particularly for medically underserved racial and ethnic minority populations. In addition to higher prevalence, ethnic and racial minority patients with diabetes have higher mortality and higher rates of diabetic complications.
To combat and continue the national conversation around diabetes, 13 National Cooperative Agreement (NCA) organizations have partnered to create a four-part national learning webinar series to engage health centers, Primary Care Associations (PCAs), and Health Center Controlled Networks (HCCNs) to increase foundation knowledge of effective strategies to prevent, treat, and manage diabetes among special and vulnerable Health Center Program patients.
This is the final webinar in our Diabetes in Special & Vulnerable Populations: A National Learning Series.
After watching this webinar, participants will be able…
- To explore strategies around integrating Community Health Workers into the patient-provider relationship.
- To understand the value of Enabling Services data collection to address social risk factors of patients with diabetes.
- To incorporate interdisciplinary team-based care concepts to address patients’ health and social needs.
