Collaborative Screening: Guidance for Person-Centered Training Opportunity for New York Community Health Centers in June 2021

Collaborative Screening is a person-centered approach to gathering information and providing referrals in health and social service settings that elevates the perspective, expertise and autonomy of the individual being served, rather than the needs and requirements of the institution. There are many good reasons to ask about individual and family circumstances in health care settings. Yet for every reason to ask, people may have just as many legitimate reasons to hesitate in sharing personal information. Nonetheless, there are very concrete attitudes and behaviors that professionals and organizations can adopt to demonstrate respect, build trust, and promote engagement with the people they serve.  Collaborative screening provides design principles and behavioral guidance to individuals and organizations for creating person-centered screening and referral processes, with the goals of creating relational safety, partnership, and better information exchange. This 10-hour live virtual patient-centered social needs screening training will take place over two weeks in June 2021.

  • Dates: June 2nd, 4th, 9th, and 11th from 1:00 - 3:30 pm
