  • Mitigating Burnout and Maintaining Provider Satisfaction During Vaccination Rollouts

    The COVID-19 pandemic forced health centers to change the way health care is delivered. Virtual health care visits were widely and quickly implemented and staff were redeployed to accommodate the demand for testing. This rapid change in health care delivery came with significant challenges including changes in staffing and care team makeup, furloughs, lack of PPE at the beginning of the pandemic, and fear of infection for those in direct contact with patients. As health centers continue to meet community needs related to the pandemic and engage in mass vaccination efforts, it will be important to consider lessons learned over the past year. In this webinar series, we will explore provider burnout and satisfaction in the context of the pandemic, lessons learned, and strategies that health centers can take to minimize burnout and maintain provider satisfaction in the next several months.

  • Health Center Eye Health and Vision Care Grants - Apply by March 19

    The Association of Clinicians for the Underserved is partnering with the Centene Foundation for Quality Healthcare and the American Optometric Association Foundation to provide small grants of $5,000 to $10,000 to federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) to assist with start-up or expansion costs for comprehensive eye health and vision care programs.

    Underserved populations continue to face barriers to accessing eye and vision care due to cost, transportation, and limited access to services. FQHCs are well positioned to address these barriers due to their commitment to reaching people in medically underserved communities and in health professional shortage areas. By integrating eye health and vision care into multidisciplinary health care settings, we aim to better address the impact of poor health and disease on vision and improve quality of life.

    Grant dollars may be used to support the cost of equipment and services necessary to establish a comprehensive vision care program. Funds may not be used to support existing services, salaries, or construction costs.
