Leadership and Management Series Conducted For Hawaii's Community Health Centers
PPHTC's UH partner worked closely with the Hawaii Primary Care Association (HPCA) to help sponsor a six- part training series in leadership and management skills. The series was geared to middle and senior management employees from the 14-federally qualified community health centers in Hawaii. The series started with corporate compliance, and included best practices in human resources, financial management for new fiscal officers, creating systems for continuous quality improvement, conducting needs assessment, and public/community relations. More then 30 people from ten of the 14 HPCA health centers were trained including members from neighboring islands who flew to Oahu once a month to attend the training. Due to the success of this training series a second series is being requested.
