Communication Tools

With Staff and Stakeholders

Resources include a variety of PowerPoint presentations and documents that help orient management, staff, providers, and community partners to the background, purpose, and practices embodied in the Core Practice Model. Regions and counties can draw from these resources to develop presentations and structured discussions tailored to their needs.
