Training and Technical Assistance
The Network serves as the central connecting point for SBHC professionals. The school based health care professionals across Oregon have participated in surveys to identify training and technical assistance needs to which the Network has responded with engaging opportunities.
On a daily basis, information and referral requests via phone and email are given personal attention by our staff. Each month of the school year, we offer a conference call to discuss topics relevant to providing sustainable services at the SBHC. This includes improving access, increasing quality care, leveraging funding or addressing the impact of policy and legislation.
Quarterly, we collaborate with the State Program Office at the Department of Human Services to provide information and training to SBHC staff via teleconferencing and/or in person. Additionally, we offer regional trainings to site staff, educators, medical sponsors, advocates and others who can help expand the success of the local community support of the SBHC.
Each fall, we host a statewide conference for all SBHC staff. Conference topics are current and relevant to working with students, meeting their emotional and medical needs. We are hosting a youth forum for the 2008 conference, where in the youth will plan the annual SBHC Day at the Capitol. Additional support is given to help sites develop engagement at the local level, including the children they serve and their families.
