Play an active part in the premier conference on integrated care by submitting a proposal to present at the CFHA Annual Conference.
Vision 2020: Strengthening integrated primary care to meet complex social needs and address the opioid crisis
Increasing pressures on primary care to screen and respond to social determinants of health (SDoH), manage patients with complex care needs, and to provide opioid use disorder care create a practice environment ripe for provider burnout. As health care teams seek to innovate and respond to these pressures with new practice models, they do so within the landscape of health policy reform heating up during the 2020 presidential election cycle. This conference will enable implementation of evidence-based practices in IBH, OUD, and SDoH, promote the uptake of training models to enhance provider skills and prevent burnout, and explore solutions to future challenges brought on by proposed health policy reform (M4All) that address care delivery and payment systems.
- Learn from the early adopters of models of enhanced community-clinical linkages
- Learn from emerging evidence on the impact of SDoH models of care on clinical and utilization outcomes.
- Learn from first responders to new policy models (AHC, CMMI, CPC+) to address the behavioral and social needs of patient populations.
We specifically want to highlight the following topic areas: managing patients with complex care needs, providing opioid use disorder care, provider burnout care and prevention, health policy reform, implementation of evidence-based practices in IBH, OUD, and SDoH, training models to enhance provider skills, solutions to future challenges brought on by proposed health policy reform (M4AII) that address care delivery and payment systems.
Philadelphia! More than 900 attendees are expected to attend the 2020 CFHA Conference.
Concurrent Education Sessions
The CFHA Conference offers more than 80 breakout sessions representing a diverse blend of topics about clinical, research, administrative, or education issues. Sessions are presented on Friday and Saturday during the conference, with 5-10 presentations offered simultaneously during each period. Presentations are 30 or 60 minutes in length.
When marketing the conference, CFHA will publish the title, abstract, objectives, and presenters. In addition, keywords will be used to index the presentations to allow for attendees to search for presentations of interest.
CFHA is committed to quality programming that links content to evidence and /or those who strive to support the current evidence base or builds upon it in rigorous program evaluation or research. CFHA strongly encourages presentations that include interdisciplinary collaboration and perspectives, including those of patients or families.
Research and Evaluation Track
We are pleased to offer a unique series of presentations identified as the Special Sessions for Training in Research and Evaluation. These presentations are designed to provide technical training on planning and conducting rigorous research, quality improvement, and program evaluation in real-world health care settings. The primary focus of these presentations should be equipping attendees with practical knowledge and skills via “how to” lessons, rather than simply presenting study results. Data from studies/evaluations should be presented as a vehicle to illustrate and teach specific approaches to study design as well as data collection, analysis, and interpretation. Presentations must provide participants with a training experience that instructs them on the knowledge/methods/skills used to obtain any data presented and the ways the results can be applied to improve practice.
We also encourage those to consider submitting a poster presentation if they feel their topic is better suited for that format. Poster presentations allow authors to visually present their best ideas and/or latest research and evaluation findings in a way that facilitates dialogue and networking among colleagues. Poster presentations are highly valuable to our field and are thus increasing in number and rigor at the CFHA conference.
