Aligning with CLAS Standards Training for PCH/PA Leadership

As a leader and/or manager of a Pathways Community HUB (PCH) or Pathways Agency (PA), you are encouraged to participate in the new PCHI training developed for the adoption and integration of CLAS Standards at the organizational level.

Content: The training builds on the CLAS Standards developed by the US Department of Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health. The content of PCHI’s training includes:

  • The National CLAS Standards

  • A crosswalk and alignment of the CLAS Standards with PCH and PA Certification Standards

  • Strategies for Implementation

  • Elaboration on select content materials and examples

  • Useful resources

Format: The virtual training involves three interactive meetings facilitated by PCHI Director of Certification, Dr. Brenda Leath. Prior to each meeting, participants will review recorded study modules and create case studies applying the content. The discussions focus on case studies from each participating PCH/PA based on the recorded CLAS content, available for review at the participant’s convenience between the biweekly meetings (Independent Study).

Case Studies: PCH and PA leaders will have an opportunity to highlight how specific CLAS principles and standards are applied in within each organization’s unique context. The case studies will provide value to colleagues who may not have similar experiences. As well, the case studies may provide insight on specific efforts used during the COVID-19 pandemic that were designed to promote health equity with diverse population groups.

 

Logistics: To allow each PCH/PA to present one case per meeting, discussion will follow the Rapid-Fire Presentation Style. Time allocations will be as follows:

  • Three (3) minutes to present a case that relates to one or more standards covered in the module(s) under review for the scheduled meeting. One Power Point slide is an option.

  • Seven (7) minutes for group discussion per case.

  • Two (2) minutes to summarize the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the case.

  • Two (2) minutes to summarize lessons learned relative to CLAS principles that had a large impact on the case.

  • Total presentation and discussion time per case is 14 minutes.

  • Facilitator has a total of 4 minutes for introduction, transitions, and closing.

Registration: Each session is limited to 5 PCHs/PAs so register early. A PCH/PA team of 2-3 participants is suggested.
