Health Center Structural Barriers LC: Access to Specialty Care for MSAWs and their Families


Organization: Migrant Clinicians Network (MCN).
Level: Intermediate.
BPHC Objective: Advancing Health Equity.
Primary Target Audience: Clinicians
Description: Understanding the complexities of specialty-care coordination processes and access helps determine the need for comprehensive and uninterrupted access to quality health care for vulnerable populations. Guaranteed access to primary care at CHCs has not translated into improved access to specialty care. It is critical that effective policies be pursued to address the barriers and minimize interruptions in care, and to ensure continuity of care for all patients needing specialty care. Clinicians and case managers working with MSAWs and their families have long struggled to find access to quality specialty care for a variety of conditions and illnesses. Through Health Network and the sister program the Specialty Care Access Network (SCAN), MCN has extensive experience in securing specialty care for some of the most challenging cases among migrants and MSAWs. This learning collaborative will feature specialty faculty who are a part of SCAN as well as case managers from Health Network. The LC will focus on practical strategies for health centers to pursue in developing long term networks and partnerships for specialty care.

BPHC Objective: Access to Comprehensive Care.
Primary Target Audience: Clinicians, Enabling Staff, Outreach Staff, PCAs
Description: Previous research has indicated that individuals with physical or intellectual disabilities often struggle to access the resources and care necessary to live independent and healthy lives. Scholarship has also indicated that providers and advocates of these individuals often face frustration and burnout when they are unable to provide patients with the support they need. In the first session of this 4-part learning collaborative, join Dr. Kevin Lombardi MD MPH and the NCHPH research and clinical quality team as they facilitate a set of interdisciplinary and collective sessions designed to engage with the latest data, clinical/social guidance as well as recommendations from leading providers, advocates and activists on how to maximally support individuals with disabilities. In the second session of NCHPH's "Health for All" learning collaborative, we present the unique challenges faced by those who provide support and care for individuals with disabilities and engage with scholarship and each-other to identify strategies to be more effective, balanced and comprehensive caregivers while promoting our own fulfillment and mental health. In the third session of NCHPH's "Health for All" learning collaborative, we will discuss and collectively examine the promising practices, clinical and non-clinical interventions that have been shown to lead to improved outcomes in patients with disabilities. In the final session of NCHPH's "Health For All" learning collaborative, we will look with more detail into the material covered during our first three sessions and engage with case-studies designed to illicit and push our understanding of the material.
