AGS2 - Closing General Session: Improving and Preserving the Health of Agricultural Workers and Their Families: The Integrated Care Team Approach and Ag Worker Access Campaign Update

May 6, 2021 4:00pm ‐ May 6, 2021 6:00pm


To provide optimal health for agricultural workers and their families, the integration of primary care, behavioral health care, dental care, and public health must be addressed. The COVID-19 pandemic has reinforced the need for a coordinated, adaptable, team approach to care. Innovative models of the integrated care team approach are addressing a variety of issues including workflow, communication among care team members, expanded use of available technologies, assuring each team member is working at the top of their training, and value-based reimbursement. During this facilitated conversation, you will learn about the steps of implementation, learn about financing, and sustaining these models and become informed about the value of community collaborations.

Learning Objectives:
  • Describe the value of an integrated care team approach to achieving health equity.
  • Demonstrate the need to expand care teams in preparation for value-based care.
  • Identify at least two potential community partners that could be of assistance in improving the health of their communities.
