Event 1 – Racism in Healthcare: Why Does it Matter, and What is Mine to do? 
Nadia Ali, MPA and Mikayla Branz, MPH/MSW with Integrated Work

Event Overview: There is a long history of racism in the United States healthcare system that creates unequal access to quality healthcare. Racism in the healthcare system, together with unequal access to the social determinants of health, leads to health disparities in outcomes from chronic disease to mental health to infant mortality. How can we move towards anti-racism in healthcare? What are the steps needed at the individual and systems levels to cultivate greater equity in our healthcare system?

Event 2 – JEDI! Burnout and Self Care 
Trent Norman and Moira Perez, Ph.D. with Integrated Work

Event Overview:“If you are not well, you cannot do well.” This webinar will explore the dynamics between social and cultural value systems and burn out. The institutional beliefs between our ideals and what is actually attainable or healthy both influence how we do JEDI (Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion) work and how we care for ourselves while doing this important work. We will also explore how we can address these dynamics in ways that can impact people differently.

Event 3 – Creating Safe Spaces in Healthcare for LGBTQ+ People 
Patricia Jane Lose, RN, CNM, ANP with STRIDE Community Health Center

Event Overview:People who identify as LGBTQ+ face many barriers to health care. Some of the obstacles that they can face include limited access, negative experiences once they reach a clinic, and lack of knowledge on the part of those providing services. LGBTQ+ people are less likely to have health insurance, and more likely to delay care when they need it. There are higher rates of suicide, depression and substance abuse in this community. Community Health Centers have always been on the forefront of providing excellent healthcare to underserved communities, and this includes care for those who identify as LGBTQ+. During this webcast, we will outline some steps that organizations can take to improve the care of this community; through creating safe clinic spaces, fostering cultural humility in staff, and building relationships in the broader community to help steer this important work.

WORKFORCE DISTANCE LEARNING EVENTS

GROW YOUR OWN CLINICAL WORKFORCE WITH HP-ET STRATEGIC PLANNING
Nataly Diaz, Deputy Director of Workforce Development, California Primary Care Association, and Kelly Rondou, Senior Consultant, Organizational Performance, Wipfli LLP

Event Overview: Grow-your-own is a core element of CHC workforce planning, and Health Professions Education & Training (HP-ET) programs are a proven strategy for growing-your-own next generation of CHC clinical providers and staff. In 2021, the California Primary Care Association (CPCA) partnered with the Education Health Center Initiative (EHCI) to develop the “HP-ET Template for Assessment and Action.” This resource helps CHCs build strategic plans specifically for HP-ET program/s by outlining a strategic workplan process and providing a sample plan outline and fillable plan template. In this session, CPCA and EHCI will discuss how CHCs and PCAs can leverage this tool in their own strategic workforce planning (SWP) and HP-ET efforts.

A free copy of the “HP-ET Template for Assessment and Action” can be downloaded from the California Primary Care Association’s virtual store (near the bottom of the page).

Target Audience: C-Suite Leaders, Operations Staff, Workforce Development Staff, HR Directors, and Clinical Directors at health centers in Region VIII (CO, MT, ND, SD, UT, WY).
