Community Health Training Module
Working in the community and with the community can be an exciting and rewarding process and is a critical strategy to extend health beyond healthcare. We can proactively address health needs in a community setting, but community engagement presents different challenges than working in a conventional clinical setting. This module describes steps to take to develop a community health program. Programs can range from a one-time health screening event to an ongoing educational program or collaboration with community residents. No matter the size or scope of a community health project, many of the basic steps are the same.
Quality Improvement and Population Health
As part of the HRSA-funded Transforming Health Care through Enhanced Clinical Team Training (THCECTT) grant project, Duke Health is engaging practitioners and students in dynamic online curricula to better understand concepts related to Population Health, and apply Quality Improvement tools and strategies to address healthcare system challenges.
Responding to the Opioid Crisis
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), drug overdose deaths continue to increase in the United States and the majority of drug overdose deaths (more than six out of ten) involve an opioid. As part of the HRSA-funded Transforming Health Care through Enhanced Clinical Team Training (THCECTT) grant project, Duke Health is engaging practitioners and students in dynamic online curricula to address the crisis and equip these students and community providers to safely prescribe opioids and diagnose and treat individuals with opioid use disorder.
