Introduction to Core Concepts is a two-day virtual introductory training that makes use of principles from SCF’s Core Concepts training to teach communication and relationship-building skills. The lessons in Introduction to Core Concepts are derived from Alaska Native values of sharing story and listening to others share theirs, and have helped bring SCF’s system of relationship-based care to national and international recognition for high quality health care.
In this training, you will recognize the importance of relationships and personal connection within SCF’s Nuka System of Care, demonstrate how to share and respond to story, and create an environment for improved communication and relationships through shared vision.
This training focuses on building relationships and practicing communication tools in small groups. It is important for attendees to plan on sharing video during the training and to participate in the full two days.

SCF surveyed participants from previous Introduction to Core Concepts trainings, asking them to use a four-point scale to provide answers to questions where a 1 was a “Strongly Disagree,” and a 4 was a “Strongly Agree.” When asked if they understood how Core Concepts assists with relating to clients/customer-owners, the average response was 3.8 out of a possible 4. When asked if they would be able to do their jobs better as a result of the course, the average response was 3.6. When asked if they believed the tools or practices in Core Concepts would help them with their relationships, the average response was 3.7. And when asked if they were overall satisfied with their Core Concepts experience, the average response was 3.8.
Being able to relate to people through their personal stories made it easier to talk about my own story even though it is hard to talk about. – Introduction to Core Concepts participant
