NCFH in collaboration with the TACHC, is pleased to offer a half-day training health for centers in the Rio Grande Valley on the topic of Increasing Access to Care for Agricultural Workers.  After seeing a decrease in the number of ag workers served in health centers in recent years, while federal funding continued to increase, health centers throughout the US began a collaborative effort to reverse the trend and ensure access to quality healthcare for agricultural workers and their families. The purpose of this training is to ensure you and your team are able to properly identify, register and document your ag worker patients in the UDS system, are aware of changes and important clarifications that have been made regarding the definition of agriculture and qualifying tasks and industries, and are familiar with available tools and resources to help you set goals to increase access to care for your ag worker community. Training information follows below.  We hope to see you there!

Who Should Attend? This training is appropriate for a cross section of staff members responsible for supervising patient registration staff or for those staff members conducting patient intake and health center registration, conducting staff development training, outreach, policy review and revision, special populations services, customer service/quality assurance, UDS reporting, etc.
