Mar 4 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

When someone shows signs of dementia, it’s time to talk. Often, conversations with family about changing behaviors can be challenging and uncomfortable.

MOLST Education Series @ Virtual
Mar 4 @ 12:00 pm – Apr 29 @ 1:00 pm

ECHO MOLST + eMOLST was developed to meet the ever-increasing demand for professional training and technical assistance for practice transformation focused on advance care planning, MOLST and eMOLST. Project ECHO’s innovative approach will support the current and future needs of our clinicians and system leaders.

The aims of ECHO MOLST + eMOLST are to provide sustainable MOLST education and to improve the quality of thoughtful MOLST discussions and documentation to ensure patient preferences are honored at end-of-life, especially in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Excellus BlueCross BlueShield is a partner with Project ECHO.

ECHO MOLST + eMOLST is a 9-week clinic series.  Weekly lunch hour-video conferencing clinics begin with brief introductions and a 15-minute didactic presentation that has been updated in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is followed by a 35 to 40-minute real patient case presentation given by a “spoke” using a Q&A and discussion format.

Participants will connect through the Zoom video conferencing platform. For more information or to sign up, contact Meg.Greco@Excellus.com

Integrated Care 102: A Case Example of Cross-Organization Collaborative Care @ Virtual
Mar 9 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Integrated Care combines behavioral health and physical health services to provide a more holistic approach to care. There are many ways to integrate services. However, few organizations bring pediatric services to behavioral health and social service settings.

This webinar will examine the collaboration between Strong Children Wellness and The Child Center of New York, a fantastic case example of cross-organization collaborative care. The organizations provide pediatric primary care and behavioral health services to youth and families. During this webinar, their successful model and lessons learned will be discussed. Webinar participants will gain a better understanding of how to integrate services within their work. There will be time for a Q&A to also support participants with a deeper understanding.

March Stakeholders Meeting @ Virtual
Mar 12 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm
COVID-19 Brings Telehealth to the Forefront
Please join us on Friday, March 12, 2021 for an informative and interactive Stakeholders Meeting. CCN’s Chief Medical Officer, Wayne C. Teris, MD, CPE, FAAFP, and Jim Racht, Telehealth Program Manager will provide a detailed overview of CCN’s COVID-19 Telehealth Assistance Program (CTAP) which was rapidly deployed to help 34 partners quickly transition from in-person visits to various virtual telehealth platforms. These efforts allowed partners to continue providing critical services and programs to our most vulnerable community members. Three partners will share their stories about the use of telehealth, the lessons learned, and most importantly the shining moments they’ve witnessed when helping community members remain connected to the services they need the most.

In an effort to nurture an interactive discussion, CCN will be using regular Zoom Meeting for the March 12th Stakeholders Meeting. We encourage all participants to turn their cameras on during this session. We’re looking forward to seeing you and your colleagues virtually!

Mental Wellness & Suicide Prevention in the Veteran Community @ Webinar
Mar 18 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Mental Wellness and Suicide Prevention. Those are two broad topics and we often shy away from discussing them with our loved ones, especially in the veteran community. There are lots of questions: Do 22 veterans on average really die by suicide every day? If we talk about suicide does that increase the likelihood of it occurring? I’m concerned about a veteran in my life but they don’t want to engage in VA services, so what should I do?
Join AFSP during your lunch hour on Thursday, March 18th for a conversation addressing common questions and shedding some light on this important health topic. The panelists are an Army veteran spouse who lost her husband to suicide, a veteran sharing his own experience, as well as representatives from the VA, the Vet Center, and the BC SAFE Suicide Prevention Coalition from Broome County, NY.
*Registration is required and a Zoom link will be sent to the email address you provide prior to the program. This program will NOT be recorded.
