Healthcare organizations have relied on online venues to stay connected with their staff, patients and families, and the overall community since March 2020. This month’s informal conversation will focus on the varied experiences of participants engaging in the virtual world. We invite you to share your experiences in virtual care (i.e. telehealth), as well as educational programming such as Conferences, webinars, and workshops. In addition, we will explore the specific ways that you are maintaining a connection with patient and family advisors, as well as the community. How has your organization adopted or modified the ways in which you connect since the start of COVID-19? What specific tools or platforms have been helpful and effective? In general, what has worked well and what have been the challenges engaging virtually? How have you addressed the disparities that can occur in the digital world?
IPFCC will demonstrate and share the use of tools that have been utilized. We encourage you to bring examples from your own settings as well as examples of positive, impactful approaches to enhancing existing partnerships in the virtual space and ways to connect with new community members to increase diversity of representation. Please join us as we learn together about integrating the lessons learned in the past 19 months and move forward.
These informal conversations are participatory in nature, building on the experience and strengths of those who join the call. We do not do a presentation but rather let the discussion be guided by what the participants want to learn more about through the sharing of our collective experiences.
Come join the conversation to help us uncover unique and effective ways to remain connected in a virtual environment. Mary Minniti, Senior Policy and Program Specialist and Ushma Patel, Director for Special Projects and Educational Programs, will facilitate this discussion.
