    Health System Current Topics, Strategies, and Innovations
    Innovations in value-based care delivery in health systems are important in managing the resources, outcomes, and relevant cost for a target population. Important considerations made by health systems include the consistent measurement and aggregation of specific outcomes which are important to patients, balanced by the expenses required for delivery across the continuum of care. In order to have an impact on the health of the populations they serve, health systems are moving outside their traditional walls and reaching into their communities with innovative models. Many institutions are integrating more holistic approaches to address the social determinants that directly impact societal health. Physical therapists must be key in this process. Whether it is influencing care across the continuum, after discharge, or implementing community-based programs, physical therapists are instrumental in developing strategies focusing on the health of the population. A panel of experts will share best practice models that have been developed within health systems that may stimulate innovation, strengthen collaboration, improve communication, and promote effective, value-based practice.

    LGBTQ+ Brave Space Training: Encouraging Difficult Dialogues in Physical Therapy Practice
    The Safe Zone Project was implemented to affect the climate that LGBTQ+ individuals engage in and to provide an environment for students where they feel valued and safe. Education centered on increasing awareness of LGBTQ+ identities, gender, and sexuality as well as unlearning preconceived prejudices. The “safe zone” premise was used to develop “brave spaces” in order to acknowledge and prepare students to be uncomfortable at times, while simultaneously laying ground rules to cope with that discomfort and productively challenge one another. It was a call on students to be “brave” in the face of discomfort. A GLSEN survey showed that teachers were unlikely to receive professional development regarding LGBTQ+ student issues. Three-fourths said they had some type of diversity education but less than a third said any of that training was on LGBTQ content. This preconference course will utilize the theoretical framework and course curriculum adopted by the Safe Zone Project; however, the training will be recognized under the umbrella of Brave Space Training to foster qualities of self-efficacy, empowerment, and pride among LGBTQ+ students. Specific case examples focused on increasing practitioner, faculty, and student awareness will be used to demonstrate current LGBTQ+ disparities in health care/classroom.
