Description

Overview

Hospital community benefit programs can address health priorities while also impacting the environment, including reducing greenhouse gas emissions that mitigate the health risks of a changing climate.

This session will describe new tools and strategies for identifying and respond to environmental and climate exposures within community benefit programs. It will feature a leading Catholic health system, Providence St. Joseph, which is piloting a new community health needs assessment process that integrates climate and environmental assessment practices, creating strategies to identify health practices with climate co-benefits, and cross training caregivers throughout its system.

Objectives

Participants will be able to:

  • Explain the rationale and strategies driving large health systems to address environmental stewardship.
  • Describe how a health system works with community resources to improve health based on environmental risks. 
  • Identify tools to assess environmental and climate risks in CHNA processes and evaluate community benefits for climate co-benefits.
