Session Summary:

In 2012, the RCHN Community Health Foundation launched a new grant initiative, aimed at helping CHCs to identify and address the challenges of recruiting and retaining a highly skilled entry–level workforce. Our objectives were to support CHCs in growth and transformation efforts, implement and evaluate strategies to embed workforce talent and capability, and optimize the ability of CHCs to serve as high quality and high-performing medical homes. With our first round of projects now complete, we’re pleased to present a project update and report on “Innovative CHC Approaches to Entry-Level Workforce Training.”
