Event description


Highly engaged staff members are key to the recruitment and retention of mission driven providers and staff. For this reason, OPCA has planned and organized a multi-month learning collaborative around the development and improvement of staff engagement for Community Health Centers in Oregon. Through this learning collaborative, we hope to educate participants on various methods for measuring and improving staff engagement at their health center. This learning experience will be a collaborative, in that, participants will be learning from each other as much as the training materials.

  • Expectations: Each participating Health Center is expected to participate in the webinars, phone calls, and associated activities. Each Health Center should identify one or more staff that will be attending on a regular basis.

  • Since this is a true learning collaborative, participating Health Centers will be asked to contribute to the learning collaborative in both time (roughly one call or webinar every month for six months) and in thought. We want our participants to learn about what others have tried, failed, and succeeded with. As such, we also expect that each participating Health Center attempt to incorporate some of the ideas and concepts we discuss through the course of the collaborative. All participants will be asked to create and share an aim statement describing how staff engagement will support your clinic's patient-centered culture.

  • Expected Outcomes: Each participating Health Center is expected to improve both their fundamental understanding of staff engagement as well as their overall use of the staff engagement principals.
