NOSORH released two new resources and hosted a successful RHC Virtual Conference last week discussing the 2 new modules from the RHC Committee. You can access the webinar recordings on quality, behavioral health and improving performance and the new modules on the NOSORH website. These modules focus on providing technical assistance to RHCs regarding quality improvement activities and behavioral health integration. Two long-standing corporate partners joined on the third day to discuss assisting RHCs with operational efficiencies.
“We were very happy to have such a great interest in the rural health clinic work. The modules were compiled and the webinars were planned for State Offices of Rural Health. We know rural health clinics need education on these issues and plan to offer similar webinars for State Offices of Rural Health to reach out to rural health clinics in the near future,” said Kassie Clarke, NOSORH Technical Assistance Director.

NOSORH will be one of the partners in the 6th Annual Rural Behavioral Health Practice Conference on October 24, 2014. The theme of this year’s conference is Integrated Care in Rural Practice. The purpose of the Rural Behavioral Health Practice Conference is to make quality continuing education available to behavioral health professionals interested in the particular practice issues involved in working with rural people and communities. The conference will include APA-approved CEs. SORH staff can register at the partner rate of $80 instead of $100. State offices can host a group webcast site and network with local behavioral health professionals as they receive the conference webcast, or choose to receive it by individual webcast. Group webcast sites will receive a detailed work plan and instructions, contact with a conference coordinator to assist with set-up, and $10 per participant to cover snacks and the cost of copying conference materials.
