Southcentral Foundation’s Core Concepts is a three-day, intensive communication and relationship-building workshop. The lessons in 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 workshop, 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.
Previous Core Concepts Workshops have garnered up to 19 continued medical education (CME) hours. Here are some of the things you won’t want to miss:

Continued Medical Education Hours

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
100% agreed or strongly agreed that they would be able to do their jobs better as a result of the course. 100% agreed or strongly agreed that the Core Concepts practices would help them with their relationships. And 100% agreed or strongly agreed that satisfied with Introduction to Core Concepts.
