                          Teaching Matters

This year the NCIBH was selected to cohost the Collaborative Family Healthcare Association’s (CFHA) 2020 annual meeting based on our demonstrated ability to strengthen integrated primary care content for the conference. We have established a conference planning committee that consists of community of practice members and fellow HRSA grantees to highlight advances in primary care education.

The October 7-10, 2020 Conference will celebrate the blend of emerging models and the continued evolution of current best practices. The virtual conference will feature a combination of live sessions and recorded content for you to consume on-the-go. There will be over 40 continuing education credits available as well as extended learning opportunities including workshops, toolkits, and community forums. Additionally, the plenary speaker sessions will tackle timely topics including complex patient care, health equity, COVID-19 health policy, and more!


Join your interdisciplinary colleagues this October
as we continue to champion integrated care!

Resources of the Month


In honor of National Suicide Prevention Month, we have curated a set of suicide prevention
and education tools for use in the primary care setting. 
  • Zero Suicide Implementation During the COVID-19 Response Zero Suicide provides a practical framework to help support a system-wide focus on safer suicide care. The toolkit allows systems to prioritize and focus on the unique needs of their organization while continuing to provide effective, evidence-based suicide care for patients.
  • Ask Suicide-Screening Questions (ASQ) Toolkit The ASQ Toolkit is a free resource for use in medical settings that can help providers successfully identify individuals at risk for suicide. The ASQ toolkit consists of youth and adult versions as some of the materials take into account developmental considerations.
  • Preventing Suicide: A Technical Package of Policy, Programs, and Practices This CDC technical package showcases a group of evidence-based strategies to help communities sharpen their focus on prevention activities with the greatest potential to prevent suicide. 

If you or someone you know is struggling with suicidal thoughts, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 24/7 at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or text “HOME” to the Crisis Text Line at 741-741.

News, Conferences, and Upcoming Events


This month, SAMHSA released the latest data findings from the 2019 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH). It provides estimates of the use of illegal substances, prescription drugs, alcohol, and tobacco, as well as mental disorders, treatment, and co-occurring substance use and mental disorders in the United States. NSDUH data will also help to identify the extent of substance use and mental illness among different sub-groups; estimate trends over time; and determine the need for treatment services.
Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and toxic stress represent a public health crisis that has been largely unrecognized by our health care system. For assistance with screening adolescents and adults for ACEs, and responding with evidence-based trauma-informed care, the ACEs Aware Provider Toolkit – created by the Office of the California Surgeon General and California Department of Health Care Services – includes tools to respond to the signs and potential consequences of trauma, recommended clinical workflows for screening and more.
