Older adults, among other special and vulnerable populations, experience substantial barriers to care, including poverty, lack of health insurance or under-insurance, and low levels of health literacy. Navigating cultural differences and addressing barriers to effective communication can be a challenge from the healthcare provider perspective.
At NCECE, we offer health centers solutions to these challenges by providing training and technical assistance through:
- Creating collaborative, inter-professional learning environments among health care centers in underserved areas with specialty teams of practitioners.
- Developing and delivering national training modules and resources focused on effective and comprehensive service delivery to older adults.
- Providing technical assistance in-person and via an online platform to health centers throughout the US.
