“What’s new in homeless health care?” – A no-jargon summary of the latest research

Staying up-to-date on the growing field of homelessness research presents a considerable challenge for the busy clinician or administrator. This workshop will present a plain-language summary of selected scientific studies on the health of homeless people that have been published since Jan. 1, 2023. The presentation will focus on scientific contributions in the following domains of homeless health: 1) health status, 2) health care delivery, 3) interventions and implementation, and 4) housing. The presenters will highlight the practical implications of each study and provide attendees with an annotated bibliography containing take-home points. No expertise in research methods is required.

Speakers: Stefan Kertesz, MD, Birmingham VA Medical Center; Katherine Vickery, MD, MSc, Hennepin Healthcare; Alaina Boyer, Senior Director of Programs, National Health Care for the Homeless Council; Travis Baggett, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program
