Leveraging the “Secret Sauce” of Relationships to Improve Reentry Outcomes: The Value of Social Capital

Bi-weekly Tuesdays (2-3pm)

If you work with individuals returning to their communities from incarceration, you know the relationships you develop with participants – and those you help participants develop outside of your organization – matter.

Many programs recognize the power of “social capital” – or the value that arises from relationships – in achieving program outcomes. However, it can be hard to develop strategies to increase participant connections and track how they contribute to program outcomes. This virtual training series for managers of programs working with individuals with criminal records will:

• Provide an overview of social capital and describe why it can be so valuable to increase the social capital of individuals with criminal records;
• Offer concrete examples of ways programs across the country are working to develop and foster relationships for this population and the outcomes they are seeing as a result; and
• Explore ways and considerations for measuring social capital and relationships in programs.

PCC’s October Webinar on Telehealth

Wednesday, October 21, 2020 (4-5pm)

At the beginning of the pandemic, telehealth use skyrocketed because clinicians and patients needed to be safe while providing and receiving needed care. Now, with many months of experience in heavy telehealth use, it’s worth taking stock of its profusion into primary care and evaluating which policies and practices make sense to continue in order to achieve the best health outcomes, advance efficiencies in care, and meet patient needs and preferences. This webinar will examine ways primary care can prepare for a post-pandemic future and integrate telehealth into primary care practices in the right way. We’ll look at how telehealth can become a regular tool of primary care without fracturing it or weakening the clinician-patient relationship.

Primary Care Spend

Wednesday, October 28, 2020 (2:00-4:00 p.m.)

Studies have shown that greater investment in primary care leads not only to better health outcomes but also lower amounts of medical spending overall. Unfortunately, most states don’t have an idea how many cents on every dollar are devoted to primary care. Some states have changed that. This session will focus on efforts to quantify and increase primary care investment.
