National HIV/AIDS Strategy Update: How will it affect community based organizations?

Register Exit Disclaimer

The National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS), released in 2010 was our Nation's first coordinated comprehensive strategy for preventing and treating HIV/AIDS. Since its release, organizations, clinics and activists joined forces to work towards the goals and aims of the document.  On July 30th 2015, the White House released an updated version of NHAS, citing the accomplishments of the prior document, updating goals and our communities on scientific advances for both treatment and prevention. How will these updates affect community based organizations (CBOs) engaged in non-clinical services? How can CBOs innovate to support the initiatives of the updated NHAS?

Please join Erik Valera, Program Director for Latinos in the Deep South, and Dr. David Garcia, Director of Capacity Building, Research and Evaluation, Latino Commission on AIDS for a presentation and conversation regarding the updated strategy. We'll share our thoughts and hear from you about ways CBOs can position themselves to remain sustainable in this changing policy environment.

Examining Hepatitis C Treatment Access: What Nurses Need to Know

WED AUG 12 2015

1:00–2:00 p.m. (EDT)

The development and approval of direct acting antiretrovirals for Hepatitis C is rapidly changing the paradigm of hepatitis diagnosis, treatment and cure for the millions of Americans who suffer from HCV. However, the high cost of treatment has led many Medicaid programs across the country to implement treatment access restrictions, including in some instances, restricting the ability of APRNs to prescribe. The restrictions unfairly limit access and are not based on clinical evidence.

Join the Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation of Harvard Law School, the National Viral Hepatitis Roundtable and Association of Nurses in AIDS Care (ANAC) to learn about current restrictions on access to sofosbuvir (Sovaldi), through a nationwide study and report of Medicaid policies for the treatment of hepatitis C virus.The report was developed by the Center for Health Law & Policy Innovation of Harvard Law School with support from the National Viral Hepatitis Roundtable. For more information, go to www.chlpi.org.

Learn how you can utilize this information to expand access to the HCV cure in your state from the following expert presenters: Ryan Clary, Executive Director, National Viral Hepatitis Roundtable; Robert Greenwald, Director, Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation; Harvard Law School and Carole Treston, Chief Nursing Officer, ANAC.

Implementing Self-Directed Care for Adults with Serious Mental Illness

FRI MAY 29 2015

1:00-3:30 p.m. (EDT)

Self-Directed Care (SDC) provides adults diagnosed with a serious and persistent mental illness the opportunity to assess their own needs, to determine how and by whom those needs should be met, and to manage the funds to purchase those services. In this way the individual assumes control of their own path to recovery. As people take control of their lives and well-being they build their capacity as contributing members of society.  The self-determination movement and self-directed care programs are shifting the balance of control to the individual and creating a new paradigm for behavioral health services. SAMHSA has included self-directed care as a component of recovery. In this webinar we will explore the successes and challenges of implementing self-directed care as a peer-run program.  Expert panelists will discuss various models of peer-run SDC programs and discuss funding options available for SDC.

Transitioning from ICD-9 to ICD-10: Is Your Organization Prepared?

On October 1, 2015, the US health care delivery system will go through a monumental transformation -- transitioning from ICD-9 codes to ICD-10 codes. ICD-10 codes will more accurately describe diagnosis and symptoms, as well as inpatient procedures. The ICD-10 implementation will affect your practice operations -- front desk registration, referrals, fee schedules, super bills and software upgrades are just a few of the workflows and tasks that will have to be re-evaluated and revamped in order to minimize interruption of cash flow. Lack of preparation could be damaging to your practice if the new codes are not reported on health claims. If your practice has not begun the activities necessary for this transition, or you need guidance and information to help you get to the next steps, then this session is for you.

Learning Community to Advance Trauma-Informed Approaches in Primary Care

THU APR 16 2015

3:00-4:00 p.m. (EDT)

The National Council for Behavioral Health in partnership with and sponsored by Kaiser Permanente Community Benefit* is pleased to announce an exciting opportunity for health centers to explore the degree to which the adoption of trauma sensitive screening, assessment and treatment practices will support primary care settings in their efforts to successfully support high need patients. Safety net organizations selected for this initiative will work to create organizational improvements including utilization of the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) study to help identify patients with a history of trauma/adverse life events. Adverse life events represent those events that individuals are likely to experience as traumatic, i.e., terrifying and/or overwhelming in a way that exceeds the person’s internal and external coping resources, such as abuse, neglect, or loss of caregiver. The ACE’s study was conducted by Kaiser Permanente in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and is one of the largest investigations ever conducted to assess associations between childhood maltreatment and later-life health and well-being. Almost two-thirds of the study participants reported at least one adverse childhood experience of physical or sexual abuse, neglect, or family dysfunction, and more than one of five reported three or more such experiences.
