A Workforce Lens

As the healthcare workforce persists to overcome new challenges to advance health equity for all, the Association of Clinicians for the Underserved (ACU) has expanded our programs to better support the CHC workforce with innovative technical assistance and training opportunities, including major new partnerships to drive federal initiatives to support health center staff well-being and strengthen collaboration between stakeholders in our shared work.

BPHC Well-Being TA Initiative

In late 2023, ACU entered a strategic partnership with JSI to undertake a new Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC) initiative to help address health centers’ unique needs, informed by the HRSA Health Center Workforce Well-being Survey, to boost their healthcare staff’s well-being and build a resilient workforce. The robust new program offers diverse training and technical assistance offerings which include communities of practice, personalized coaching, and a dedicated resource hub—all united by a singular focus on helping health centers build and sustain a strong, resilient workforce to better care for their communities.

Launching with a kickoff presentation in November 2023, the initiative has already begun hosting informative webinars for the CHC community and launched three upcoming communities of practice to assist health centers in addressing burnout, improving job satisfaction, and building diverse workplace cultures to support workplace well-being.
