February National Briefing

Integrating Peer Support in Primary Care


Thursday Feb 27, 2014 01:00 pm to 02:00 pm EST
United States

This month, Edwin B. Fisher, Global Director of Peers for Progress, and Leticia Ibarra, Director of Programs for Clinicas de Salud del Pueblo, Inc. join us for a discussion focused on how peer support can enhance primary care, chronic disease management, behavioral health and more. Peer support links people living with chronic conditions, providing them with emotional, social and practical assistance.  Speakers will highlight evidence demonstrating the positive impact that peer support has on health outcomes, its role in patient engagement, and the benefits and challenges of integrating peer support in primary care settings. 

On the last Thursday of each month, the PCPCC hosts its National Monthly Briefing, a webinar series where members, partners, and medical home advocates can join the conversation to learn more about trends, innovations, partnerships, and advancements in the medical home sector. The webinars often feature a presentation from one or more experts in the primary care and medical home disciplines to discuss any research or best practices the areas of care delivery transformation, payment reform, patient engagement, and employee/purchaser benefit design.
