Increase the capacity of the current and future healthcare workforce to understand and apply core concepts of health system and practice transformation

STRATEGY 1: 

Integrated team-based care

Increase the capacity of current and future health professionals to integrate physical, behavioral, and oral health, and long-term care through interdisciplinary, team-based practice. Incorporate understandings of integrated physical, behavioral, and oral health into all health professional education programs.

  • Expand interprofessional health education activities among higher education programs (e.g., nursing, social work, pharmacy, medicine) 
  • Expand continuing education, supervisor training, and leadership development to support integrated, team-based care 
  • Provide continuing education to behavioral health professionals on assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and/or referral of physical and oral healthcare issues
  • Provide continuing education to primary care providers on assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and/or referral of behavioral and oral health issues

STRATEGY 2: 

Health system Transformation Concepts

Educate the current and future health care workforce about the significance of value-based payments, care management, social determinants of health, health equity, population health, and data analytics.

  • Engage and support higher education partners and others to develop a “clearinghouse” of content-specific training modules (for-credit, not-for-credit, or continuing education) that can be delivered in the classroom, workplace, and/or online.
