A Path to Healing (NACHC Pillar #3)

Nov 17, 2021 11:30am ‐ Nov 17, 2021 12:30pm

Identification: HWA1

Covid 19 has relentlessly impacted health center front line staff, their families and communities. Meanwhile, other traumas have been experienced as well—fires, hurricanes, financial stress and personal difficulties. It is difficult to know how to extract ourselves from the immersion of stress and to safeguard a way to healing. Health center staff need renewal and persistent strength to orient their communities and themselves toward healing. Through hearing voices of patients and staff, learning about the effects of social outrage and stress, and considering ways our bodies and minds may, create new mechanisms for affirming healing, staff and centers will be offered simple practical methods to acknowledge the moral injury of this time while making a way forward toward resolution.
Learning Objectives:
  • Participants will understand the core themes patients and staff are sharing about COVID-19.
  • Participants will understand the effects of chronic outrage on our bodies and social settings.
  • Participants will experience tools to assist personal and collective healing from the trauma of the pandemic.

Comprehensive Workforce Plans: A Holistic Approach for the Health Center Workforce (NACHC Pillar #2 and #3)

Nov 17, 2021 1:00pm ‐ Nov 17, 2021 2:15pm

Identification: HWA2

The National Institutes of Health defines strategic workforce planning as ‘the process of analyzing, forecasting and planning workforce supply and demand, assessing gaps, and determining targeted talent management interventions to ensure that an organization has the right people – with the right skills in the right places at the right time – to fulfill its mandate and strategic objectives.’ The ever- changing workforce landscape can make that process seem daunting. How can Primary Care Associations (PCAs) and Health Center Controlled Networks (HCCNs) support health centers in conducting strategic workforce planning effectively by applying it as a tool to meet the needs of today’s, tomorrow’s, and the future workforce? This session will explore the value of investment in developing a Comprehensive Workforce Plan and highlight important questions to ponder in that process. Additionally, this session will highlight the need for adaptability and flexibility in strategic workforce planning as well as feature examples of innovative organizational approaches to developing and implementing a Comprehensive Workforce Plan.
Learning Objectives:
  • Recognize the value of investment in the development of a Comprehensive Workforce Plan.
  • Understand the need for ongoing review and adjustments of a Comprehensive Workforce Plan.
  • Explore innovative approaches to implementing a Comprehensive Workforce Plan.
