What’s new in homeless health care? A no-jargon summary of the latest research

Friday, June 23, 2017: 8:30 AM-10:00 AM
Constitution CDE (Grand Hyatt Washington)
Staying up-to-date on the growing field of homelessness research presents a considerable challenge for the busy clinician or administrator.  This workshop will present a plain-language summary of selected scientific studies on the health of homeless people that have been published since January 1, 2016.  The presentation will focus on scientific contributions in the following domains of homeless health: 1) health status, 2) health care access and delivery, and 3) housing.  The presenters will highlight the practical implications of each study and provide attendees with an annotated bibliography containing take-home points.  No expertise in research methods is required.
