About ACU's Centers of Excellence Initiative
Uniting both the general concept of Centers of Excellence as well as the Health Resources and Services Administration’s specific Advancing Health Center Excellence Framework, the Association of Clinicians for the Underserved’s emerging Centers of Excellence (COE) program aims to identify and develop a framework of standards and create supportive resources to help health centers develop their capacity and excellence in critical areas to improve health equity as true Centers of Excellence.
Health Center Excellence: Best Practice Briefs
With the generous support of the Centene Corporation, ACU has been deliberate in researching best practices and has now compiled a series of briefs through stakeholder and subject matter expert interviews and literature reviews on four crucial areas of health center services, including:
- Eye Health and Vision Care
- Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion
- Suicide Prevention in Primary Care
- Workforce Retention and Recruitment
These briefs provide essential guidance on best practices, resources to evaluate and improve your health center’s services, and recommendations from leaders and subject matters in the field. Read the briefs below and please contact us with any questions.
