A key part of PCC’s mission is working to make primary care more responsive to patients’ needs and preferences. This webinar will feature two major efforts to systematically gather the perspectives of patients in primary care: Community Catalyst’s November 2019 report, “In Their Words: Consumers’ Vision for a Person-Centered Primary Care System”, based on nine focus groups in four states; and regular surveys of patients and clinicians by the Larry A. Green Center and PCC during the COVID-19 pandemic. The webinar will consider what patients are looking for overall, with a lens on those who are most vulnerable, including patients facing racial and economic disparities. Through brief presentations of the data and a moderated discussion, panelists will consider what primary care is doing well and where practice and policy changes are needed. They will also highlight how the pandemic is shaping interactions between primary care clinicians and patients and what may be on the horizon.

Speakers:

  • Ann Hwang, MD | Director, Center for Consumer Engagement in Health Innovation at Community Catalyst
  • Lynda Flowers, JD, MSN, RN | Senior Policy Advisor, AARP Public Policy Institute
  • Rebecca Etz, PhD | Co-Director, Larry A. Green Center

Moderator: Ann Greiner | President and CEO, Primary Care Collaborative

The Mountain Plains Mental Health Technology Transfer Center (MHTTC) presents this free series, consisting of two, 90-minutes sessions focusing on the critical role of primary care providers in suicide prevention. People who die by suicide are more likely to have been seen by a primary care provider in the 30 days prior to their death than any other healthcare discipline. In rural areas especially, where behavioral health resources are fewer and stigma around seeking mental health help may be greater, it is crucial that primary care providers have the knowledge, skills, and tools necessary to help prevent suicide among their patients. This webinar series will introduce a simple toolkit to help put suicide prevention protocols into place in a practice or clinic, and will walk participants through the screening, assessment, and intervention phases of suicide prevention. Tips for addressing suicidal issues via telehealth will also be included.

Part One: Suicide Prevention in Rural Primary Care: Office Protocols, Screening, and Assessment

Session one will provide an overview of rural suicide issues, contributing factors to suicide rates in rural communities, primary care providers’ critical role in suicide prevention, office protocols, and patient screening and risk assessment.

Dates and tentative hours for PCC's Virtual Annual Conference

The program will be heavily shaped by the major events of 2020 – the coronavirus pandemic, national conversations about racism and racial and economic equity, and the November general election. All of these events have had an impact on primary care and have resulted in both positive and not-so-positive changes. The conference will consider these questions and more: 

  • What do these changes mean for primary care in the present and future?
  • How can we use these times to make permanent reforms to primary care payment and care delivery and rebuild it into something even better?
  • What does equity in health care look like, and how can primary care play a leading role in addressing disparities?
  • What is primary care’s role relative to public health and how does primary care better connect to the community and provide a more comprehensive set of services? 
  • How can we continue to make a strong foundation of primary care as key to the nation’s health?

Conference planners are building an impressive lineup of speakers who have been addressing these questions and playing a leading role in primary care during these transformative times. Speakers will include leaders, thinkers and experts in policy, health plans, primary care practices, patient care and other areas.
 
More details on the virtual annual conference will be released as they become available. Watch for details on the conference website, in PCC’s newsletter, emails, and social media channels.
