Braided Patient Engagement Strategies
To address current public health crises, improve patient engagement,
and enhance health and well-being.
Innovative Braided Patient Engagement Strategies
Braided engagement strategies consist of interweaving normally separate services to the benefit of both the client and those providing the service.
COVID-19 has demonstrated that patient care must evolve from illness-specific practices to person-focused practices. Braided engagement strategies are needed to regain patient engagement, foster a greater emphasis on public health, leverage lessons learned in telemedicine, and, ultimately, advance addiction treatment and recovery services.
BE PART OF THE SOLUTION. The NIATx Foundation’s Executive Roundtables provide leadership teams didactic instruction and coaching on how to successfully use innovative braided patient engagement strategies to advance service delivery. Executive participants appreciate how this approach provides an effective method to naturally adjust to changing times and avoid getting stuck in pre-COVID care delivery models.
The Braided Engagement Strategies Executive Roundtable is designed to:
- Demonstrate how braiding services related to our current public health crises (e.g., COVID concerns, HIV/HCV cases, opioid overdoses) into existing addiction treatment services can establish your center as a “go-to” place for the community;
- Help addiction treatment providers think of themselves as more than solely addiction treatment providers;
- Address how to use NIATx tools to develop a menu of braided services that can help your organization operate more effectively, expand your patient base, and improve patient engagement and overall well-being; and
- Identify 1-3 braided strategies you can apply for your service continuum.
Executive Roundable Design
The Executive Roundtable includes three (3) two-hour learning events (held via Zoom) comprised of:
- Organizational strategies
- Case examples
- Facilitated discussions
