The final event of the Solving for Sleep series will focus on you, the health care provider. This webinar will explore why many health professionals have a complex relationship with their own sleep habits and detail how they can identify barriers to prioritizing their own health needs. It will also challenge the status quo of how providers think about sleep in relation to their work in the health field. Health care providers and their mentors, managers and leadership, researchers, and policymakers will all benefit from this important dialogue on sleep health for the health care professions.
Expanding and Enhancing Primary Care: A Pathway to COVID-19 Recovery
Tuesday, May 18, 2021
12p.m. to 12:30p.m. ET
Primary care is the foundation of a high-functioning, high-quality and equitable health care system. Research shows that increased access to primary care is associated with fewer hospital visits, emergency department visits, and surgeries. Yet, primary care represents only an estimated 5–7% of health care spending in the United States.
At the same time, the neighborhoods hardest hit by COVID-19 – those with a higher proportion of patients of color and low-income residents and higher rates of chronic disease – are the same neighborhoods that have poor access to primary care. The need for primary care is expected to increase significantly following the pandemic, particularly in the communities with disparities in acute and chronic illness.
Many are calling for a stronger role for primary care in ‘building back better’ a high-quality, affordable, and accessible health care system. Join us for an online discussion with Maura Harris, MPH, Policy and Advocacy Manager, Primary Care Development Corporation to learn more about how increasing access to primary care can be a pathway to COVID-19 recovery.
