Primary Care Providers are often the front-liner in patient care. During residency training, family medicine residents will develop the skill on identifying and addressing the social barriers to the care of their patients. Through the use of patient cases, residents will learn about different community resources available in your zip code, develop a plan on how to connect patients to these resources and ultimately have a better health for the population. Improved health is achieved if we also have strong community collaboration.
Instructional Strategy: 2 hours
Recognize in patient encounters barriers to their care.
Formulate different strategies to identify community resources for these barriers.
Apply the process for connecting to this community resource(s).
