West Coast Health & Housing Continuing Education Information


September 18 – 20, 2013 | Irvine, California

Jointly sponsored by Vanderbilt University School of Medicine and the National Health Care for the Homeless Council

After participating in this CME activity, participants should be able to describe and discuss

  • the unique elements of the HCH approach to patient care;
  • examples from the HCH community of efforts to maintain clinical quality, consumer participation, and interdisciplinary approaches in clinical care; and
  • the systematic realities of barriers to care and methods to remove those barriers at clinic and community levels.

This training is designed by HCH professionals for HCH professionals, including clinicians, support staff, administrators, board members, and consumers of HCH services. It will also be of value to others who provide health care and support services to people experiencing homelessness as well as government officials and advocates.
