Pathways to Cross-Sector Partnerships to Address SDOH, Part 2
Presented By: National Center for Medical-Legal Partnership School-Based Health Alliance
Since their inception, health centers have had a special focus on identifying and addressing patients' health-related social needs in an effort to ensure optimal access to primary care. In a rapidly changing, and infinitely more complex social and health landscape, it is more important than ever that our care teams and tools evolve to meet patients where they are. As health centers work to improve their social determinants of health strategies, strategies, they must adapt new ways to solve age-old problems like poor housing and lack of income, which reverberate for health center patients and result in poor health outcomes. Join this webinar for a broad discussion of the opportunities to tackle SDOH in tandem with existing community partners and how health care teams can work together to address the social determinants of health. Special focus will be given to school-based and legal interventions that can meet the needs of patients and boost capacity of the healthcare team confronting complex SDOH. The session will review specific resources and tools. Presenters will also discuss how the above interventions can inform the dynamics and challenges of diabetes management for a range of populations.
By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Demonstrate how healthcare teams bridging across sectors like law and education can support increased access to care, improve health services delivery, and improve overall health outcomes with a focus on diabetes management.
- Identify resources available to meet the needs of pediatric and adolescent patients.
- Understand the connection between legal and health needs.
