Diabetes hypertension echo series

2019 ECHO Diabetes y ECHO Hipertensión

Las sesiones de la serie seprogramarán los jueves a las 10:00 am PST / 12:00 pm CST / 1:00 pm EST

en las siguientes fechas 17, 24 y 31 de enero  |  7, 14, y 21 de febrero  |  7, 14 y 21 de marzo.

Description:  Oportunidad dinámica de ser parte de un grupo de trabajadores de salud de todas partes del país, dedicados al cuidado de la diabetes y la hipertensión en las comunidades a las que sirven. 

Migrant Clinicians Network (MCN) y HRSA han unido sus esfuerzos para abordar la diabetes y la hipertensión dentro de los centros de salud FQHC que sirven a las comunidades cuya población tiene un número significativo de trabajadores agrícolas móviles. Para apoyar a estos Centros de Salud, MCN lanzará por tercer año consecutivo el Proyecto ECHO (Extensión para los Resultados de Atención de Salud Comunitaria) que se enfoca en la diabetes y la hipertensión.

Las dos series, ECHO Diabetes y ECHO Hipertensión, se presentarán en español y serán dirigidas específicamente a los promotores y trabajadores de salud comunitarios, trabajadores de alcance, y administradores de casos que trabajan directamente con pacientes en la detección, tratamiento, autocontrol, y prevención de la diabetes e hipertensión.

El modelo ECHO, desarrollado por la Universidad de Nuevo México, mantiene un alto nivel de compromiso entre la facultad y los participantes, y requiere un compromiso de asistir a todas las sesiones de la serie. MCN invita  a los Trabajadores de Salud Comunitarios (CHWs) / Promotores de Salud, trabajadores de alcance, y a los administradores de casos de su Centro de Salud a que soliciten ser parte de este intercambio único de ideas y prácticas.
Seleccionaremos a 25 participantes de las solicitudes presentadas para formar el grupo de participantes para 2019 ECHO diabetes e hipertensión. Los seleccionados serán notificados por correo electrónico.

Al final de las series los participantes podrán:

  • Identificar los aspectos específicos del modelo de capacitación ECHO, incluyendo la importancia del aprendizaje basado en casos.

  • Identificar aspectos básicos de prevención de la diabetes y hipertensión.

  • Discutir sobre la importancia de los indicadores clínicos de la diabetes y la hipertensión, como el peso, el IMC, la presión arterial, el colesterol, la HgA1C y la glucosa.

  • Explicar los conceptos básicos de la diabetes y el autocontrol de la hipertensión, incluyendo la dieta, los medicamentos, el cuidado de los pies y el ejercicio.

  • Comprender las posibles consecuencias de la salud mental por la diabetes y la hipertensión.

  • Describir el papel que pueden desempeñar los CHWs en la prevención de la diabetes y la hipertensión, y en la enseñanza del autocontrol de las enfermedades crónicas.

  • Evaluar la capacidad de proporcionar educación al paciente sobre la diabetes y el autocontrol de la hipertensión después de la capacitación.

Patient Engagement and Activation for
Health Center Providers and Staf

NNCC learning collaboration patient engagement

Patient Engagement and Activation for Health Center Providers and Staff

Next Session February 21, 2019 @  1pm (ET) / 10am (PT)

Lead Faculty: 

Jillian Hopewell, MPA, MA, Director, Education and Communication at the Migrant Clinicians Network, 

Kristine Gonnella, MPH, Director of Training and Technical Assistance at the National Nurse-Led Care Consortium,

Sarah Solis, LCSW, Director of Seeds of Change Consulting. Seeds of Change Consulting provides training, supervision, and consultation with a focus on providing individually tailored, strength-based treatment to clients. All services include an examination of the idea of “resistance”, the subsequent clinical challenges arising from this discord, and how to strategically address these challenges through the use of Motivational Interviewing and other forms of strength-based assessment and treatment.

Description:  Evidenced-based research demonstrates that patient engagement leads to improved health outcomes and quality of life. To effectively engage patients in their health care, health centers can utilize a team-based approach to develop a shared care plan and support patients as they navigate the health care system. In this six-part interactive series, Migrant Clinicians Network (MCN) and National Nurse-Led Care Consortium (NNCC) will work with a select group of ten health center care teams to improve knowledge and skills around evidence based strategies for patient engagement and activation. 

Participants in the virtual learning collaborative will attend six (6) learning sessions consisting of live web-based platform training, offline team-based activities, and facilitated office hours. These learning sessions will be hosted from January through June of 2019 and will take place via the Zoom video conferencing platform. CEs will be provided. All modules will be presented/facilitated by staff from MCN and NNCC unless otherwise noted. All modules will take place at 1 pm ET. MCN will provide CME and CNE credit at no cost to participants by the American Academy of Family Physicians and the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation. Determination of credit is pending.

Audience: Providers, health center staff, health center administration, and clinical directors

Learning Collaborative Structure

MODULE 1: PATIENT AND FAMILY ENGAGEMENT THROUGH CARE TEAMS
January 17, 2019 from 1 - 2 pm ET
This introductory session will elucidate the key elements of team-based care, including: (1) team communication, (2) clarifying and optimizing roles, (3) care coordination, and (4) patient activation. This session will outline tools and strategies to engage patients as members of the care team. Participants will be encouraged to assess their health center’s level of “teamness” through an online assessment following the session. 

MODULE 2: TEAM-BASED ENGAGEMENT STRATEGIES
January 31, 2019 from 1 - 2 pm ET
This session will outline the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) “Be Prepared to Be Engaged” strategy for patient activation and will incorporate role playing exercises and Q&A. Participants will review case studies beforehand and come prepared to think through patient care scenarios in which Be Prepared to Be Engaged can be utilized.

MODULE 3: INTRODUCTION TO MOTIVATIONAL INTERVIEWING
February 21, 2019 from 1 - 2 pm ET
This session will lead participants through the key elements of motivational interviewing, with a particular focus on how to engage socially and ethnically diverse patient populations. The session will examine the key elements of motivational interviewing including the four general principles of: (1) express empathy, (2) develop discrepancy, (3) roll with resistance, and (4) support self-efficacy. The session will emphasize specific skills and tools used to create a systematic approach to engaging patients. The faculty will discuss using OARS (open ended questions, affirmations, summaries, and reflective listening) to draw patients into conversations about their health that lead to real change.

MODULE 4: DEVELOPING MOTIVATIONAL INTERVIEWING SKILLS
February 28, 2019 from 1 - 2 pm ET
This session will involve extensive role playing exercises so that participants can practice the skills learned in Session 5. Participants will be encouraged to bring challenging cases to the group for discussion and problem solving.

MODULE 5: PATIENT SELF-MANAGEMENT AND GOAL SETTING
March 14, 2019 from 1 - 2 pm ET
Patients with chronic diseases make day-to-day decisions about their health. The key to better health is for the health center team to engage with patients in the process of self-management so that the health center can fully support patients for better health outcomes. In this session, we will discuss some of the key strategies that have been proved effective in engaging patients in self-management. In particular, we will focus on tools to improve goal setting and on strategies to support patients in reaching their health goals.

MODULE 6: SUPPORTING PATIENT-SELF MANAGEMENT IN A TEAM-BASED SETTING
March 28, 2019 from 1 - 2 pm ET
In this session, we will explore the institutional and systems-based approaches for health center staff to build continuity and sustain their patient engagement efforts. Participants will identify facilitators and barriers to achieving a culture of patient engagement and create SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time-bound) goals for their health center.

MCN IPV Learning Collaborative Banner

Addressing Intimate Partner Violence

First Session: April 17, 2019 @ 10am (PST) / 1pm (EST)

Description:  Intimate partner violence (IPV) occurs in all segments of our society, but vulnerable populations like migrant women may encounter additional disparities and barriers to care that make intervention and treatment of IPV more complex. Language barriers, economic hardship, and isolation from their communities, support networks, and cultures of origin make it increasingly difficult to come forward and report IPV. Women often suffer in silence for fear of losing their jobs or enduring legal ramifications like being reported to immigration by a citizen partner. In addition, immigrant and migrant women can have less access to social and medical services increasing their negative health outcomes. Health centers can make significant strides in reducing IPV in the community through culturally sensitive tactics both in the exam room and in the community.

In these two sessions, Migrant Clinicians Network provides specific and effective action items to better serve women who have experienced IPV in the exam room, and to make our communities safer by engaging men in the community.

 

Learning Collaborative Structure

Session 1: CREATING A SUPPORTIVE CLINICAL ENVIRONMENT TO ADDRESS INTIMATE PARTNER VIOLENCE
Date: April 17, 2019
This Learning Collaborative will explore ways in which clinicians can address IPV in a primary care setting. The first session will build on MCN’s decades of experience in supporting clinicians ability to use the exam room as a safe space to speak to women potentially affected by IPV. MCN worked with clinicians to identify a method to initiate dialogue through a brief low-literacy assessment tool that relied on icons to identify types of abuse. Through this training, we will prepare clinicians to understand exit plan development including critical items/documents, sources for financial support, and how to identify a trusted network. We will also discuss how to engage local and regional resources to provide resources and support for women experiencing IPV.

Session 2: PROVIDING ESSENTIAL TOOLS FOR MEN TO ACT ON PREVENTING INTIMATE PARTNER VIOLENCE
Date: May 01, 2019
Primary prevention of intimate physical and sexual violence is defined as preventing violence before it occurs. In this session, we will discuss strategies to engage in primary prevention among immigrant and migrant men. Research and programmatic experience conducted by MCN over the last two decades has shown the need to provide men with the skills and the lexicon/language to address stress, fear, and anger effectively in order for them to employ primary prevention strategies. Faculty will provide an understanding of the processes and outcomes, and enhancing sustainability for programs that focus on the prevention of intimate partner violence in immigrant and refugee communities. The discussion will also include information about videos and other materials for use in multiple settings that can be employed to engage men in conversation about primary prevention.
