Power of Volunteerism in Our Society and on Health Care

Dr. Jemilah Mahmood, Under Secretary General – Partnerships, International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies

We are at a crossroads in health care in the United States.  As our hospitals grow into large regional, national and even international systems, volunteerism runs the risk of becoming extinct because of the business forces driving healthcare system evolution. As a physician, Dr. Mahmood knows the critical impact and value that volunteers have on today’s hospitals.

Mary Carl, Principal, West Coast, Health Leads
Fabiola Gutierrez, Program Manager, Contra Costa Regional Health Center

Over the past four years, the health care sector has increasingly recognized the impact social determinants of health have on health outcomes. Many health systems, to varying degrees, have integrated screening and resource navigation strategies into clinical care. The next evolution of health care challenges us to look beyond the hospital walls to address barriers where health happens – in homes and communities. Session participants will better understand the future of health care, how volunteers contribute to the success of a community-centered model, and how developing community partnerships can enhance volunteer efforts.

Jennifer Doyle, Manager, Volunteer Resources, Nanaimo Regional General Hospital
Erik Mindermann, Director, Patient Experience and Volunteer Services, Mills-Peninsula Health Services
Ciara Stewart, Manager, Volunteer Resources, Royal Jubille Hospital & Victoria Health Unit

Youth-oriented volunteer programs at three hospitals are fostering volunteerism and leveraging youth culture, social media and the desire to give back to their communities. Vancouver Island Health’s innovative “Step Up Youth Program” for high school students was developed to increase youths’ awareness of community needs and to explore potential careers in health care. Sharp Grossmont’s youth volunteer program has been growing thanks to employee engagement with volunteers and the development of Junior Auxiliary leadership positions that prepares them to be part of the workforce. Mills-Peninsula Health Services will share the hospital’s success using collected data to refine and speed their youth volunteer onboarding process so volunteers can do what they do best, and more quickly. Join us to learn how these innovative programs are attracting youthful populations to volunteerism. 

Understanding and Implementing New Homeless Discharge Planning 

Peggy Broussard Wheeler, Vice President, Rural Health and Governance, California Hospital Association 
Linda Van Fulpen, CAVS, Manager, Volunteer Services, Sharp Grossmont Hospital

Effective January 1, 2019, SB 1152 requires hospitals to meet numerous requirements before discharging a homeless patient. Standard discharge policies must now include a homeless patient discharge planning policy and process and include provisions to help the homeless patient return to community. Hospitals must be prepared to offer food and clothing and be able to connect the homeless patient with available community resources, treatment, shelter and other supportive services. 
This session will introduce you to the intricacies of the new homeless discharge planning law and explain requirements for compliance. Hear how one Volunteer Services department supports their hospital’s efforts in providing clothing, shoes and other items required for discharge.
