The 2022 TCOM Conference registration will be taking place September 21 – 27, 2022 with an in-person and virtual option. Registration for the conference is now live!
The Praed Foundation will be hosting 2 virtual workshops. The first workshop, the 2-Day TCOM Orientation, will focus on the Transformational Collaborative Outcomes Management (TCOM) philosophy, and the TCOM Tools (CANS, ANSA, FAST). The 2nd workshop hosted in July 2022 is a Certified Trainer Training, which will focus on creating training materials that represent the core concepts of communimetrics and the TCOM framework.
In the first part of this blog, Ken McGill talked about how a whole-person approach requires a broader perspective of “needs” and how collaboration is required for transformation at the individual and systems level. In part 2, Ken continues to discuss how this can be achieved. He focuses on how human complexities require collaborative solutions, and how it takes a team to heal a village.
Ken McGill discusses how the TCOM framework comprise a whole-person approach, and how the TCOM tools can be used to support a whole-person understanding of those we serve. He discusses the importance in understanding a person’s needs and strengths. He conceptualizes a more broad view of need through “Hierarchies of Understanding” and how the next step in Systems of Care is to ensure that collaboration efforts are strong enough to meet not only Maslow’s pyramid of needs, but also needs outside of the individuals and families.
We are introducing both Michele McFadden and Cynthia Alpan, who were recently featured on the new TCOM podcast, “shift, shift…Bloom!“. Michele is a survivor of a hit-and-run accident where she was left with a traumatic brain injury. Cynthia is a financial advisor in Lebanon, a country that is struggling through one of the worst financial crises the world has ever seen. This podcast examines how people change, and to do this, we ask individuals who consider themselves change-makers, change embracers or change resistors to share their personal stories of transformation.
We have started a new series, “Ask A TCOM Trainer” on our TCOM YouTube Channel. TCOM trainers from the Center for Innovation in Population Health and guests from across the TCOM world will weigh in on the topics that matter most to our community. Our goal with this series is to help people understand the TCOM tools and framework, and how TCOM can make a positive impact on others.
