I truly appreciate the collaborative effort of CDPHE and the Colorado Public Health Training Center to offer this course to LPHAs. This will inevitably support the state in addressing the 10 winnable battles. The state cannot win them without competent LPHA’s.
Care Coordination Strategies for Diabetes Management August 1 - August 29, 2017 (11:30-12:30 pm MT)
The Community Health Association of Mountain/Plains States (CHAMPS) is partnering with the RM-PHTC to develop and launch an interactive ECHO learning series to improve diabetic patient management in Region VIII Community Health Centers (CHCs). In this series, participants will learn about key skills, strategies and resources to support and engage patients with diabetes in their own care.
This ECHO learning community is FREE and does require a commitment to attend all sessions.
This ECHO series is intended for those coordinating the care of patients with diabetes at Region VIII Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs). This may include case managers, care coordinators, patient navigators, etc., or those health center staff that oversee these roles. Participating health centers are not required to have a care coordination program specific to Diabetes Management. However, the series curriculum will focus on diabetes as an example of chronic disease management.
Each participant, even those attending from the same health center, must register as an individual. If possible, please have participants connect to each session from their own device.
Sessions will be held Tuesdays 11:30am-12:30pm MT, 12:30pm-1:30pm CT
- August 1: Diabetes Nutrition 101
- August 8: Identify and Monitoring Patients
- August 15: Patient Motivation
- August 22: Tools to Support Behavior Change
- August 29: Building a Medical Neighborhood
As a participant in this free learning community, we expect you to:
Attend all sessions in the series (to the best of your ability).
Participate in discussions and actvities during each session.
Join via video for sessions by logging in on a computer with webcam, smartphone, or tablet.
Sessions will include a brief presentation from a subject matter expert and a facilitated discussion among learners and panel members.
