TODAY WE HIGHLIGHT THESE NCA RESOURCES:
The National Center ECE provides innovative and culturally competent models of care, inter-professional training and educational resources, and technical assistance to health care professionals in community health centers who provide care to an increasingly vulnerable population: older adults. The Center seeks to achieve three objectives: better health, better health care, and lower costs for older adult populations by establishing a rapid response model of multi-disciplinary service and providing training in cultural humility at every staff level to effectively engage diverse older adult patient populations.

Reminder: HRSA has National Cooperative Agreements with national organizations to provide free training and technical assistance (T/TA) to support existing and potential health center grantees and look-alikes. The NCA partners possess subject matter expertise in functional areas, and support health center’s ability to maintain fiscal and operational excellence, engage in effective workforce development activities, utilize cutting-edge health information technology and structure health care services in a manner culturally and linguistically appropriate to the patient population served.
These organizations are funded to provide T/TA to health centers in a manner that increases patient safety and health outcomes, effectively serves diverse special, vulnerable, and underserved rural, frontier, and urban populations. This T/TA often takes the form of learning collaboratives, state/regional/national trainings, webinars, newsletters, toolkits, and fact sheets.
