Wraparound Care in Communities of Faith

Wraparound Care in Communities of Faith

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - April 1, 2020

Trauma-Informed Care is an approach to addressing experiences of early adversity that emphasizes compassion and incorporates the belief that every person has intrinsic value and should be treated with dignity. It also promotes the understanding that negative behaviors may be typical responses to past traumatic experiences.

Join us on Wednesday, April 1 to learn how the combination of a trauma-informed faith community and a unique, faith-based emphasis on wraparound care may reduce negative outcomes and increase flourishing in individuals with past trauma and/or substance use disorder.

Guest Speakers

Andrea D. Clements, PhD
Professor and Assistant Chair for the Psychology Department at East Tennessee State University

Tanner Clements, M.Div
Director for Uplift Appalachia and teaching pastor at Christ-Reconciled Church, Johnson City, Tenn.

Long-Term Care Nursing Homes Telehealth and Telemedicine Tool Kit

On March 27, CMS issued an electronic toolkit regarding telehealth and telemedicine for Long Term Care Nursing Home Facilities. This document contains electronic links to reliable sources of information regarding telehealth and telemedicine, including the significant changes made by CMS over the last week in response to the National Health Emergency. Most of the information is directed towards providers who may want to establish a permanent telemedicine program, but there is information here that will help in the temporary deployment of a telemedicine program as well. There are specific documents identified that will be useful in choosing telemedicine vendors, equipment, and software, initiating a telemedicine program, monitoring patients remotely, and developing documentation tools. There is also information that will be useful for providers who intend to care for patients through electronic virtual services that may be temporarily used during the COVID-19 pandemic. Toolkit
