Community Conversation: Busting the Myths of PCBHWednesday, May 18, 2022
For many of us, the PCBH model is a simple and efficient approach to providing high-quality patient-centered care. However, a variety of myths exist as how to how the model should be applied, such as who is a “good fit”, is this even therapy, and you can only treat small problems, to name a few. In this Community Conversation, the group attempted to bust these Myths of PCBH with our panel of super contributors. Finally, we explored many of the myths posted to the listserv and welcomed all those in attendance to submit their myths as part of the conversation.
Supporting Medically Complex Patients with Comorbidities During the COVID-19 PandemicCommunity Conversation: Supporting Medically Complex Patients with Comorbidities During the COVID-19 Pandemic
April 20, 2022
Historically, primary care has been the first line of treatment for those who experience co-occurring mental and chronic health conditions. Often termed “medically complex”, these patients have unique healthcare needs that require providers to operate above and beyond their typical practice. Unsurprisingly, the COVID-19 Pandemic has added a new layer of complexity, leading many providers to continuously evolve in their approach to treatment. In this Community Conversation, we explored these practices for supporting medically complex patients during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

CFHA Pediatrics SIG MeetingMarch 28th, 2022
Access to behavioral health services in the community has gotten worse during the pandemic, exacerbating the youth mental health crisis. While many BHCs try to deliver services as a bridge to community mental health, more and more BHCs find themselves working towards a bridge to nowhere, as patients face long waitlists and other barriers in the community. Algorithms for BH referrals have to be revisited as pressure to squeeze more patients on the BHC schedules is increasing.
This month we had a facilitated discussion on team-based solutions to a cross-system problem. A research article on the topic was also discussed.
Families and Health WebinarCreative Funding Strategies for Family-Based Models of Care: Payer and Provider Perspectives
Clinicians and payers alike have historically struggled to extend beyond patient-centered care to engage family members in ways that are meaningful, cost-effective, and efficient with use of time and staffing resources. In this webinar, representatives from a regional health plan in Colorado and an evidence-based population health pediatric model, with providers in San Francisco, come together to discuss current and cutting-edge methods of funding family interventions in primary care settings. The presenters will provide key pieces of evidence that support family interventions’ effectiveness in meeting key outcomes such as reducing avoidable emergency department utilization and hospitalizations and improving condition-specific health markers, as well as sustaining long-term positive outcomes. Presenters will showcase specific examples of how clinicians can connect family interventions delivered in their setting to high-priority goals within health plans and at the state level, align family intervention outcome measures with high-value metrics, negotiate payer contract enhancements, and demonstrate a return on investment.
Community Conversation - Cultural SafetyWednesday, March 16th at 1 PM EDT
CFHA Community Conversation
Throughout the years' terms for addressing the cultural factors in human communication have changed. How can we be more inclusive and engaging when we talk with someone from a culture different from our own? Cultural competence. Cultural humility. Cultural safety. What term do you use and why? The purpose of this community conversation is to help you explore your views and terms. Awareness and intention are powerful components of an engaging conversation between an individual seeking care and an individual providing it.
CFHA Pediatrics SIG MeetingTo screen or not to screen for ACEs: … is that the question?
CFHA Pediatrics SIG Meeting
February 28th, 2022
The question in any case is not whether to address ACEs, but how to better do so. The answer might be developing healing-centered strategies around ACEs and mitigating adverse consequences of ACEs. And doing so without contributing to the inequities, stigmatization, and re-traumatization of children and families.
This month’s meeting focused on the pros and cons of ACEs screenings and screening best practices. The Peds SIG discussed screening for PACEs (Positive Childhood Experiences) versus, or in addition to, ACEs and shared an article on the value of integrating ACEs conversations in the pediatric well-child visits as part of the anticipatory guidance.
