Clinical Workforce Development

Addressing the Need

Community Health Center, Inc. (CHC) received a National Cooperative Agreement (NCA) to address the most fundamental need of health centers now and for the coming decades: a clinically expert, deeply committed staff representing all roles and disciplines in primary care that is trained to a high performance model of team-based care.  To address this need, CHC continues to support your health center through education, assistance and training.

Learning Collaborative Applications are now available!

Advancing Team-Based Care

The Team-Based Care Learning Collaborative is a 10-month participatory learning experience offered by the National Cooperative Agreement (NCA) for Clinical Workforce Development, funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration, and hosted by Community Health Center, Inc.(CHCI) in Middletown, CT.  The Collaborative is designed to provide transformational strategies and coaching support to help primary care practices in Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) implement an advanced model of team-based care. The Collaborative will provide a series of videoconference learning sessions with 10-12 primary care teams from across the country, as well as in-person quality improvement training, ongoing mentoring for coaches in your organization, technical assistance, and access to web-based tools.  Teams will complete an assessment of their current practice using a nationally recognized method to identify opportunities for improvement, and will work between learning sessions to meet their aims.
