CTAC Announces Online Leadership Forum for December 17th
Greetings from the The Children's Technical Assistance Center (CTAC):
Thank you so much to all those who attended the leadership forums around the State. For anyone who was not able to attend an in-person session, we will be hosting an online version of the presentation on Monday, December 17th from 12pm-1pm. Please see below for additional information about CTAC and what will be discussed during this session.
The Children's Technical Assistance Center (CTAC) founded in 2011 and co-directed by Dr. Mary McKay and Dr. Kimberly Hoagwood is pleased to announce that CTAC is expanding to include all clinics throughout New York State regardless of population served. CTAC is a training, consultation, and educational resource center funded by the NYS Office of Mental Health, with the overall goal of improving mental health outcomes for families, adults and children.
In addition to our core partners from the Children's CTAC , Coordinated Care Services Incorporated (CCSI), The Institute for Community Living (ICL), Families Together (FT) and The Urban Institute for Behavioral Health (UIBH) we are excited to introduce our new partners The Coalition of Behavioral Health Agencies and the New York Association of Psychiatric Rehabilitation Services (NYAPRS).
The Center has now been renamed The Clinic Technical Assistance Center (CTAC), which provides an array of informational resources, tools, and educational opportunities designed to promote effective and efficient business practices, evidence informed clinical interventions and organizational change management strategies.
While continuing its dual clinical and business practice focus for children's agencies, a major focus of CTAC for providers over the coming year is to provide clinics with information, tools and strategies to self-assess current business practices through the use of a comprehensive benchmarking tool; identify critical areas in need of improvement; implement and evaluate solutions and learn about policy and procedural changes that are likely to enhance productivity and reduce missed appointments in a way that contributes to quality services and fiscal health. As we continue to grow we are expanding our collaboration to bring training activities and tools that promote effective care through efficient practices.
Thanks so much!
The CTAC Team
