4137.0 Model Programs for Community Health Practice

Tuesday, November 6, 2007: 12:30 PM
Community-based prenatal care management (PCM) program models will be presented. These student authors analyzed current PCM model programs. Among the implications of their findings is that state policy is an important factor in the decision to use evidence-based models of PMC. This student researcher will also discuss the organizational impact of integrating a women’s health program into an existing health department highlighting obstacles and barriers in effective collaboration across programs. The Vermont Blueprint for Health, a public private partnership designed to improve health outcomes for people with chronic diseases and reduce health care costs, will be the focus of the presentation.
Session Objectives: Participants should be able to: Identify three contextual factors influencing program directors’ decision to use evidence-based practice in PCM programs. Identify and avoid potential pitfalls in the process of integrating women’s health care. List and describe potential factors that may limit the effectiveness of an experimental policy. Identify the challenges and opportunities of a partnership approach to changing chronic disease health care and preventive services.
