A longtime leader in healthcare improvement, we’re developing new ways to revolutionize the industry.
Health equity means every person has the opportunity to achieve their best health. Premier’s more than 4,400 diversified hospital and health system customers know all too well the importance of advancing health equity and healing for social change. This is why Premier’s PINC AI™ Applied Sciences (PAS) team is partnering with NW Children’s Foundation (NWCF) to advance health equity through strengthening and expanding educational outreach efforts.
The goal of this partnership is to help amplify learning and collaboration as organizations and communities work to transform systems so that all children, youth and families can thrive.
The PAS team invites you to join an online forum on February 9 from 2 - 6 p.m. (ET) for a discussion titled, “Healing-Centered Practices and Childhood Trauma: Reimagining Ourselves and Transforming Our Work with Children and Families.”
Dr. Shawn Ginwright will share practical wisdom, experience and ideas from his latest groundbreaking book: The Four Pivots: Reimagining Justice, Reimagining Ourselves.
Research on adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) documents an increased risk for behavioral and health challenges across the life span.1 Trauma-informed care recognizes the widespread impact of adverse experiences and environments and responds in ways to prevent ACEs and promote healing. Dr. Shawn Ginwright, shares that being healing-centered expands how we think about responses to trauma and offers a more holistic approach to fostering well-being.2 He maintains that you can’t solve deep problems with shallow tools.3 In this online forum, Dr. Ginwright will share four pivots that help us to develop what he calls healing-centered leadership.
NWCF’s work focuses on helping to end the intergenerational cycle of child abuse, neglect and trauma. They envision a world in which all children thrive in safe, equitable and nurturing communities. They realize this vision can only be fulfilled by putting racial equity and social justice at the center of every aspect of their work.
NWCF’s model is unique in the child welfare landscape. Their grantmaking invests in direct-service community-based programs aimed at healing children, empowering youth and strengthening families. Through educational outreach and convening, they catalyze systemic improvements in services for children and families.
In a time when the realities of our healthcare system are driving health workers to burnout and many of us are feeling isolated and exhausted, Dr. Ginwright’s message – including the concept of radical rest and the inextricable link between self-healing and social justice – is both timely and meaningful.
