    Care Coordination Through Innovative Collaboration Strategies

    Wednesday, May 22nd 12:00 - 1:00 PM [2nd May Webinar]

    The United States healthcare has moved from an illness based model to community health-focused preventative model of care, and care coordination and transition management have become the cornerstones of ambulatory care nursing practice. Care coordination maximizes the value of services delivered to patients by facilitating appropriate, efficient, safe and high-quality patient experiences and improved outcomes. Utilizing best practices a Northwell Health ambulatory care site, has implemented a successful care coordination program. The upcoming generation of nurses must be equipped with a strong knowledge base in this essential concept. Threading the elements of care coordination throughout the curriculum will enable students to build on these concepts and be adequately prepared with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to successfully manage and coordinate care for patients.

    #MeToo: Associations of educational institution religious affiliation and sexual health services with reports of on-campus rape

    Wednesday, July 17th  12:00 - 1:00 PM

    → This presentation builds upon the #MeToo movement that has highlighted sexual violence on college campuses. This study compares rates of on-campus rape to results of a content analysis summarizing U.S. college/university (N = 500) religious affiliation and availability of sexual health services. The session will focus on identifying the overall deficit in services across the country and contribute to the #MeToo movement by demonstrating variance in on-campus rape and insufficiency of services for survivors.

    Establishing a Model for Certified Recovery Peer Advocate Training Programs

    Wednesday, September 18th 12:00 - 1:00 PM

    The Certified Recovery Peer Advocate (CRPA) training program at Queensborough Community College of the City University of New York (Queensborough), supported by the New York Alliance for Careers in Healthcare and New York City’s Department of Small Business Services provides a tremendous opportunity for qualified students to develop the competencies needed to be successful CRPAs. CRPAs are individuals who are certified to provide coaching, support, information, guidance, and motivation to those seeking or sustaining recovery from a substance use diagnosis. Students enrolled in Queensborough’s CRPA training, participate in an 80-hour comprehensive program that includes CRPA training combined with a 3-credit college-level health education course, HE 104: Addictions and Dependencies. This presentation aims to share our experiences of integrating a non-credit training program with a college-credit health education course that provides students with the knowledge, skills and opportunities for employment to help individuals through their recovery process.

    Disaster Recovery & Public Health:Lessons Learned from the US Virgin Islands

    Wednesday, October 2nd  12:00 - 1:00 PM

    Disasters can happen in any location. Frequently, healthcare organizations are unaware of the recovery process following a disaster, and the opportunities that arise to rebuild more resilient healthcare systems. Drawing from lessons learned from hurricane recovery efforts in the United States Virgin Islands and the recent hurricanes, this presentation will review strategies for healthcare recovery that center on consensus and coalition building. Key areas for prioritization emerged from working groups led by local government agencies, healthcare providers, and community-based organizations. These topics include developing new care coordination models, integrating preparedness into healthcare delivery, establishing a health information exchange, and strengthening the local healthcare workforce. Participants will leave having a better understanding of what to expect during recovery after a natural disaster.

    2020 Census: What is at risk for Public Health?

    Wednesday, October 16th  12:00 - 1:00 PM [2nd October Webinar]

    The 2020 Census and the ACS are currently facing fiscal, operational, and policy threats that could jeopardize a fair and accurate count, which would weaken data used by the health care, education, housing, and local government. This webinar will present how New York State is preparing for the 2020 Census, including findings from the State Complete Count Commission report on issues that have led to past undercounts in New York State. The U.S. Census Bureau will present plans for the 2020 Census, including the use of new technology for the enumeration process and efforts to build partnerships to reach hard-to-count populations. Learn what’s at risk and how public health stakeholders (you) can do to ensure an accurate count in NYS.

    Bullies & Victims: What can high schoolers teach us about sex, drugs, violence, & the propensity toward harming behaviors using; using the CDC’s Youth Behavioral Risk Survey (YRBS)

    Wednesday, November 20th  12:00 - 1:00 PM

    Drug abuse, unsafe sexual practices, exposure to violence, and other health-risk behaviors are among the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in teenagers. Our study applies the principles of market research segmentation to categorize, compare, and contrast different groups by their exposure to violence (bullying vs. victimization) and their health-risk behaviors (unsafe sexual practices, drug abuse, sexual violence, suicides, etc.). By plotting teenage populations on an exposure-to-violence continuum (ranging from the likelihood of becoming bully to the likelihood of becoming victim), researchers and practitioners can develop intervention strategies that are specific to each group. This study can assist researchers to understand how LGBT and heterosexual youth cope with violence and victimization.
