Webinare: PRAPARE Screening Tool & Diabetes Prevention

Date: November 16, 2020

Time: 11:00 AM Central


The American College of Preventive Medicine (ACPM), the American Medical Association (AMA), and the Black Women’s Health Imperative (BWHI) are pleased to bring you the next webinar in our Learning Collaborative to Address Diabetes Prevention, PRAPARE Screening Tool & Diabetes Prevention. 

Identifying the socioeconomic and structural drivers of poor health outcomes and higher healthcare costs is increasingly important when caring for complex patients. By collecting standardized data on the social determinants of health (SDoH) using the Protocol for Responding to and Assessing Patients’ Assets, Risks and Experiences (PRAPARE) tool, community health centers can better understand the complexity of their patient populations and use that information for a variety of purposes including providing more appropriate care, better allocating limited resources, targeting interdisciplinary teams, and providing needed social services—either in-house or through community partnerships. 

The PRAPARE is a standardized SDOH screening tool developed by the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC), the Association of Asian Pacific Community Health Organizations, and the Oregon Primary Care Association to help community health centers engage patients and inform care and payment transformation.

This webinar will feature speakers Yuriko De la Cruz, Manager, SDoH, and Sarah Halpin, Program Associate from NACHC.

By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Define the social determinants of health and the impact on patient health outcomes and population health
  2. Understand what PRAPARE is and the use of it to collect social risk data of patients
  3. Explore how social risk data collection can inform diabetes prevention efforts
