Partnering Beyond COVID-19: Learning Circle: Heart Health
March 15 @ 11:00 am - 11:30 am
Session Topic: Learning Circle: Heart Health
Description: Review and Check-in
COVID-19 has changed healthcare in many ways and has delayed chronic disease management for many patients. Patients needing follow-up appointments for their chronic disease were not able to schedule appointments due to decrease in in-person visits, laboratory closures for routine testing, and less access to community-based programs.
Our program over the next few months will share evidence based practices and innovative strategies that have emerged to improve prevention and management of chronic disease and outcomes.
Upon completion of this educational series, participants will be able to:
- Participants will develop deeper understanding of best practices and evidence-based tools for prevention and management of hypertension, chronic kidney disease (CKD), and diabetes,
- Participants will enhance their knowledge of Million Hearts, TAKEHeart and IPRO QIN-QIO tools for increasing referrals to and participation in cardiac rehabilitation programs, and
- Participants will enhance their knowledge about chronic disease health disparities and the best practices for addressing these disparities, to support better health outcomes.
Audience: Partnership for Community Health, hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, home health agencies, physician practices, and community-based organizations.
