IDENTIFYING LOCAL RESOURCES TO MEET PATIENT SOCIAL NEEDS

IDENTIFYING LOCAL RESOURCES TO MEET PATIENT SOCIAL NEEDS

Health centers have long responded to the social drivers of health: social and economic factors which have a major impact on health outcomes. Knowing where to find the needed community resources can be challenging when food insecurity, housing, transportation, and other needs arise. Luckily, there are local organizations that take the guesswork out of this. 2-1-1 resource databases, area extension agents, and community action agencies are critical in facilitating access to vital community resources.

This panel-style webinar was conducted with speakers from the Helpline Center, FirstLink, Community Action Partnership of ND, SD Community Action Partnership, and NDSU and SDSU Extension. We heard how each of these organizations could be key partners in helping you identify local community resources to address social drivers of health so that you can optimize your time spent with patients.
