NACHC Training and Technical Assistance (TTA) Learning Collaboratives


NACHC’s learning collaboratives allow health center peers to come together to study and apply operations, leadership and quality improvement methodology to focused topic areas. Collaborative learning is the educational approach of using groups to enhance learning through working together. Groups of two or more learners work together to solve problems, complete tasks, or learn new concepts.

This approach actively engages learners to process and synthesize information and concepts, rather than using rote memorization of facts and figures. Learners work with each other on projects, where they must collaborate as a group to understand the concepts being presented to them. Through defending their positions, reframing ideas, listening to other viewpoints and articulating their points, learners will gain a more complete understanding as a group than they could as individuals.

Improving the Curation and Distribution of Promising Practices

Improving the Curation and Distribution of Promising Practices
October 28 – December 16, 2021
Register here.

Working alongside NACHC and its Georgetown partners, participants will help develop a promising practices submission form and a checklist for vetting based on new criteria. They will also help tailor the Clearinghouse submission process to align with health center practices.

We are excited to offer a new learning collaborative, “The Health Center Resource Clearinghouse: Improving the Curation and Distribution of Promising Practices.” We are looking for PCAs who will collaborate with training and development managers and staff from their state’s health centers to strengthen the Clearinghouse’s curation and sharing of promising practices. Working alongside NACHC and its Georgetown partners, participants will help develop a promising practices submission form and a checklist for vetting based on new criteria. They will also help tailor the Clearinghouse submission process to align with health center practices.*

*The Clearinghouse was established in July 2018 with funding from HRSA as a collaborative effort to provide a broad offering of resources central to the health center operating environment. In early focus groups and surveys, health centers, PCAs and HCCNs—many of whom were on NACHC’s Committee on Health Center Excellence and Training—helped design the Clearinghouse as a collaborative partnership between BPHC’s National Training and Technical Assistance Partners (NTTAPS) to curate a collection of the most relevant resources that meet strict quality standards.

The Clearinghouse has since become an important vehicle for sharing knowledge with the health center community. Its strength is in its partnership with providers of training and technical assistance who give expert guidance and support to the health center community. As the collection has evolved to meet emerging conditions—in particular the COVID-19 pandemic—the Clearinghouse has also created ways in which health centers can take an active role in sharing content, bolstering the
collection with “field-generated” resources designed for quick implementation of emerging practices.
Target Audience:
PCAs who can partner with a health center in their state, particularly focusing on:

  • Health Center staff or managers who are responsible for staff training and development.
  • Chief Workforce Officers
  • In-house Training Directors
  • Others
