Population Specific Approaches to SDOH

Presented by: Harvard Equitable Care for Elders, National LGBT Health Education Center, Migrant Clinicians Network and National Center for Health in Public Housing

Type 2 diabetes is a chronic disease which places individuals at risk for serious long term complications and death. Risk reduction, effective treatment and management of diabetes as with many other chronic diseases are heavily dependent on social and environmental conditions. Individuals within certain special and vulnerable populations experience health inequalities and therefore are at a higher risk of late detection, inadequate management and treatment of diabetes. Improved access to certain non-clinical enabling services and a comprehensive social history is essential to understanding the needs of these often overlooked individuals, and developing interventions that address those needs. During this webinar, presenters will provide an introduction to the unique and common challenges facing this population and strategies to adapt and increase access to social enabling services.

By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the impact of mobility as a social determinant of health that impacts the identification, treatment, and management of diabetes. Participants will also identify at least one resource to increase continuity of care for mobile diabetic patients.
  • Articulate the social characteristics of and risk factors for diabetes in public housing residents.
  • Describe the impact of social determinants of health specifically experienced by LGBTQ patients on management of diabetes and diabetes outcomes among LGBTQ patients.
  •  Articulate the key role social determinants play in addressing the long term management of older adults diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes and other co-morbidities.

Anonym 0 2988

Presentation Description

The SAMHSA/HRSA Center for Integrated Health Solutions (CIHS) is a national resource for technical assistance on the bi-directional integration of care (primary care in behavioral health settings; behavioral health in primary care settings). The Center has organized a special roundtable discussion for participants interested in learning about strength-based strategies to improve supervisory relationship with staff.

Supervising in an integrated care environment takes new skills and tools to maximize the effectiveness of all the members of the team. The team is what defines integrated primary and behavioral health care, and your role as a leader is critical to the overall success of your integrated care program. Join this roundtable to review tools and skills supervisors need to improve team communication, patient care and team effectiveness. Learn strategies to help partner with your employees to develop shared expectations, elicit needs and enhance their autonomy. Build your confidence as a supervisor and come away from this roundtable discussion with a clearer sense of what it takes to lead an effective integrated care team.

Join Pam Pietruszewski, MA, Integrated Health Consultant, National Council for Behavioral Health and Nick Szubiak, MSW, LCSW, Consultant, CIHS, to build your confidence as a supervisor and come away from this roundtable discussion with a clearer sense of what it takes to lead an effective integrated care team.

This will be an interactive roundtable discussion with an opportunity for participants to interact directly with national experts on supervisory skills. All attendees will be offered the opportunity for no-cost follow-up assistance on any of the topics discussed during the webinar. There will also be an opportunity for follow-up group discussions.
