Hot Topics in Practice: Integrating Public Health and Primary Care
Tuesday, March 19, 2013
Noon – 1pm Pacific
Professionals in public health and primary care alike value disease prevention and health promotion, but often work disjointedly on these shared goals. Fortunately, momentum is building to integrate public health and primary care at local and national levels. Those involved in this effort have many examples of successful partnerships to guide them.
In this one-hour Hot Topics webinar, members of the Northwest Regional Primary Care Association, Bruce Gray, MA, and Patrick Luedtke, MD, MPH, will discuss several efforts to better integrate public health and primary care at the local level. Gray will lead off the discussion by sharing key findings from the recent Institute of Medicine report exploring integration and the historic transformations taking place in the healthcare marketplace. Gray and Luedtke will then share opportunities to coordinate funding, build relationships among stakeholders, share data, and co-train the workforce needed for successful integration.
