Project: Resilience Hawaii
Resilience Hawaii is a social work, psychology, pharmacy, and medicine collaboration in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Homelessness remains a major public health problem in Hawaii due to complex systemic and social barriers. Effective diabetes (DM) and pre-DM management programs for the homeless are sparse or non-existent.
Our approach is to train healthcare students using parallel learning framework in virtual and real world community settings. This includes learning modules such as:
- Resilience for Health Learners
- Homeless 101
- Pre-Diabetes & Diabetes at H.O.M.E.
- Medications for Diabetes
- Building the Patient-Provider Relationship
- Leadership in Crisis
Resilience is needed to help tackle everyday issues and it is a trainable skill. By training health students from every discipline in resilience, they are better prepared for issues they will face in their profession and to build resilience in those they serve.
We will share more information when the project completes at the end of 2022.
