Ten Tips for Clinical Operational Reviews
Jennie McLaurin, MD
April 23

There are 19 formal program requirements for Federally Qualified Health Centers and failure to meet them results in grant conditions and other possible operational restrictions. Program requirements cover fiscal, clinical, administrative and governance issues. Although about half of the requirements include clinical components, reviewers often find that health center clinicians are unaware of the program requirements and may have had little training in how to ensure they are implemented. This session will review the clinical aspects of the program requirements, consider criteria used in assessing them on site, share common performance improvement recommendations, and discuss mechanisms for greater clinician input into achieving and sustaining requirements within a center.


MCN Webinar Series: Migrant Clinicians Network has designed the series Essential Clinical Issues in Migration Health for new as well as seasoned clinicians who are interested in understanding more about the migrant population. The series is divided into six webinars which cover a wide breadth of knowledge and skills to help clinicians provide quality care to one of the most difficult to reach populations in the United States.

Each module consists of a 1-hour webinar presented by experts in the field of migration health. Each module is accredited for an hour of Continuing Nursing or Continuing Medical Education. If you enroll for the entire series you will receive 6 full hours of free continuing education.
