CMB2 - Engaging a Diverse Primary Care Workforce Through Competency-Based Learning and Professional Development for a Joyful Career Journey - YOUNG PROFESSIONAL TRACK

Aug 27, 2018 12:30pm ‐ Aug 27, 2018 2:00pm


Recruiting, onboarding, and retaining a well-trained and resilient workforce takes a commitment to ongoing training and progression that utilizes innovative learning models underpinned by core competencies. At the center of all training development is assessing and understanding the specific audience while also addressing the needs of a diverse and ever-evolving workforce. This session introduces the importance of providing differentiated and adaptive learning opportunities to all members of the health center staff (cohorts) to ensure inclusion and increase joy in work. Professional development begins at the individual level through self-assessments and expands out to the organizational level through the creation of resources aimed at bridging self-identified gaps. By introducing innovative technology to the creation of blended learning opportunities, cohorts have a multitude of choices to meet their learning and professional development needs.
