Year Developed: 2021

Resource Type: Archived Webinar.

Primary Audience: C-Suite (CEOs, CFOs, CIO, COOs, CMOs, etc.) Clinicians Enabling Staff Outreach Staff PCAs
Secondary Audience: Administrative Staff Board of Directors

Language(s): English

Developed by: National Center for Medical-Legal Partnership (See other resources developed by this organization).

Resource Summary: This four-part learning collaborative explored the ways medical-legal partnerships can leverage the patient-centered legal services to implement clinic- and policy-level solutions to address the housing crisis as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Participants received information through a blend of brief didactic presentations followed by peer-to-peer learning. This learning collaborative is specifically for health centers and their legal partners, but individuals from other health systems that collaborate with health centers are welcome to attend.

Resource Details: The second part of the Patients-to-Policy Learning Collaborative was moderated by Ashley Maddison, JD, Equal Justice Works Fellow at Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers. She discussed patients with complex care needs who also encounter housing crisis and shared MLP strategies that can be adapted to various MLPs’ individual communities to address this issue, specifically in the area of fines and fees. Outstanding fines and fees and municipal matters are often hidden barriers to finding and maintaining stable housing. The session was followed by a brief Q&A with the moderator.
