The National Association of Community Health Centers and the School-Based Health Alliance offered two virtual workshops for health centers on the key elements of providing school-based health care. The workshops included a focus on enhancing school-based partnerships and the unique operational considerations for providing school-based health care. View the recording of the first workshop from 4/28/22 here.
Caring for the school-aged population is critical for community health centers. Expanding school-based health sites and services is a growth and development strategy. Health Center operators must be aware of the unique operational considerations, competencies, and models along a continuum of possible school based or school linked health services, as provided by health centers.
This virtual training workshop will:
Explain the difference between a school-run clinic and a FQHC-hosted school-based health center site.
Articulate the evidence base for the intersection of education and health in achieving healthy outcomes for school aged population.
Identify elements of success and pitfalls to avoid during your SBHC planning process.
Explain the challenges and benefits of delivering care at the intersection of education and health.
Showcase tools to assist with SBHC planning and start-up.
