Administrative Concerns in Street Medicine: Assuring Quality without Sacrificing Mission

Presented by the National Health Care for the Homeless Council
Monday, April 23, 2018 | 12-1 p.m. CT

Street medicine is the provision of direct patient care to those sleeping outside. Understanding that many patients either can’t or won’t access care in a traditional setting, the goal is to deliver high quality care in the location of the patients’ choice, rather than withhold care while awaiting their presentation to a fixed clinic site. This requires the capability of delivering high quality of care on the street.

This webinar will explain how to develop a street medicine quality assurance program. Attendees will learn what key topics must be included in a policy and procedure manual and how to determine a safe scope of practice. Presenters will discuss issues surrounding medical malpractice and liability, medication dispensing, safety guidelines, and specific quality metrics.

Speakers:

  • Brett J. Feldman, PA-C, Director of Street Medicine, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA
  • Laura J. LaCroix, RN, Clinical Coordinator, Lehigh Valley Health Network, Allentown, PA
  • Moderator: D. Michael Durham, MTS, Technical Assistance Manager, NHCHC, Nashville, TN
