The Office of Long-Term Living (OLTL) will be presenting a live, interactive webinar series on housing issues. This five-session series will be offered twice (see schedule below). The webinars will include targeted content, including question and answer (Q&A) sessions with housing experts and OLTL staff. Each session is scheduled for 90 minutes to allow for interaction and Q&A segments.

The webinar series targets Service Coordinators, Managed Care Organizations, and Service Coordination Entity support staff who assist program participants in securing and maintaining affordable, accessible housing. This series builds on information already provided in the Online Housing Training Modules and the Self-Determination Housing of Pennsylvania (SDHP)/Inglis’s Prepared Renter Program (PREP) curriculum.

This series of webinars is designed to be taken in order. The content in each session builds on prior content. Participants will get the most out of the program by taking all the sessions in order. Although individuals are not required to complete the sessions in order, to keep the sessions focused, the webinar leader may opt to table questions that were covered in prior sessions.

The series will be presented twice:

PHAN has announced an upcoming series of webinars for health-care providers on accessible health-care for people with disabilities. While the webinars will focus on information for health-care providers, the information will also be valuable for people with disabilities and those who support them. All are welcome to attend.

This series is part of the Rural Healthcare Access Project, an initiative funded by the PA Developmental Disabilities Council to improve health-care access for people with disabilities in rural Pennsylvania.

Session 1: Core Competencies on Disability Part 1 – Thursday, January 14, 2021 at 1:00 pm

This session will be a presentation of Disability Core Competencies by Dr. Susan Havercamp, Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Health at the Ohio State University Nisonger Center.

The Core Competencies are skills and attributes that enable health-care professionals to provide quality care to consumers with disabilities. They were developed by the Alliance for Disability in Health Care Education in partnership with the Ohio Disability and Health Program at the Ohio State University Nisonger Center by using a consensus process, which included people with disabilities, disability experts, health educators, and health-care providers.
