Overview
Nothing about 2020 has been predictable. From a global pandemic to racial unrest, we are all suddenly involved in a world actively experiencing and reacting to new challenges.  This series will bring together Minnesota experts to share tools and information to facilitate active learning and problem solving. Participants will identify challenges, learn about new tools and successful approaches, and adapt resulting strategies. The series will start with a focus on society’s and medicine’s role in historic and institutional racism and where to go from here as medical professionals. We will look at the psychological impact of the pandemic and hear about effective approaches to community and secondary trauma, and we will learn about models that are designed to proactively stem its impact. Telemedicine has emerged as an effective tool to safely deliver medical care. We will learn more about how it has been used historically and what the future holds for its long-term use in all aspects of mental health care.
