EMPOWER is an experiential curriculum intended to ‘empower’ providers to connect families with effective community resources. The target audience includes residents or medical students with an interest in primary care or chronic care.
The curriculum is divided into three sessions with an interim problem-based learning activity between the second and third sessions.
The first seminar focuses on developing an understanding of Life Course Theory, including how events throughout the life course impact later health outcomes and may be modulated by the provision of community resources.
The second seminar introduces skills in needs assessment and strategies to locate and perform a quality assessment of community resources. The problem-based learning assignment allows learners to practice the skills learned in the previous two seminars with a family.
The third and final session involves a review of the problem-based learning assignment and mapping of selected resources identified through the learners’ assignments by visiting the resources within the community.
