2018 Conference - Where’s the Evidence? Resources for Community-Level Interventions to Improve Health
Rachel Parrill, Carolyn Barnett; Healthcare providers are familiar with an evidence-based practice model which promotes clinical decision making based on empirical evidence and expert opinion. You are likely very familiar with resources which synthesize the best evidence for patient care, but where do you start when you want to reach outside the walls of your clinic? How do you know what works best to improve the health of neighborhoods and communities? In this session, we will explore two web-based resources which synthesize evidence-based approaches to improving population health.
Jeff Zsohar; Baylor Scott and White (BSWH), one of the biggest healthcare systems in Texas, has adopted “To care for all individuals…. as a Christian ministry of healing” as its mission. This session will look at innovative care programs, community care clinics, and collaborations to address social determinants of health that are happening in Texas’ largest metro center to address the physical, social and spiritual needs of their neighbors.
Discussion on what to look for in a community partner, how to identify social determinates of health that lie "upstream" from traditional acute medicine, and how to align the work with the existing health system. Amy Richardson
Think of this session as Community Health Outreach 101 facilitated by Stan Rowland, author of CHE, a system used in medical missions around the world.
