ENHP Co-sponsors Medical Home Workforce Conference
ENHP, through its Institute for Translational Research, is co-sponsoring a conference on Developing a Patient-centered Medical Home Workforce in Connecticut.
The conference will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 23, in Wilde Auditorium. The lead sponsor is the Universal Health Care Foundation of Connecticut and its parent organization, Connecticut Health Advancement and Research Trust (CHART). Connecticut Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman will offer opening remarks.
Patient-centered medical homes (PCMH) require a workforce with enhanced skills in coordination and transitions of care, patient engagement, community outreach, team-based practice, chronic disease management, information technology and quality improvement. This conference will bring together those working in health care, policy-making, education and community-based organizations to hear from PCMH experts from within and outside the state. The goal of the conference is to build concrete strategies for developing the workforce needed to transform health care delivery in Connecticut.
Members of the University community are welcome to attend the morning portion of the conference. There is no charge, but reservations are required. Please contact Marlene Hall at 860.768.5116 or email@example.com to pre-register. Unfortunately, due to space limitations, walk-ins will not be admitted.
