The journal Medical Care released a call for papers for a special issue on multi-morbidity among homeless populations.
Some topics may include but are not exclusive to:
-Systematic or meta-analytic reviews of interventions or models
-Evaluation of interaction and/or integration of healthcare, social services, and other sectors in serving homeless populations
-Healthcare and homeless services in unique geographic areas, such as rural regions
-Tele-health and other technology-based solutions for homeless populations
-Innovative effective models of care, such as community psychiatry and street medicine approaches
-Addressing suicide, opioid use disorder, unique medical conditions, and early mortality among homeless populations, particularly from the psychosocial perspective
**The deadline for the initial submissions has been extended until March 15, 2020. Please see the call for papers for submission instructions.
In June, the journal Medical Care published a special commentary written by APHA Caucus on Homelessness Policy Chair, Jen Elder, and Past Chair, Ben King, Housing and Homelessness as a Public Health Issue: Executive Summary of Policy Adopted by the American Public Health Association. They collaborated again this month to write a piece for Medical Care’s blog, “Homelessness as a Public Health Issue.” In the piece, they recap the evidence and recommendations from the recently adopted policy statement on homelessness for the American Public Health Association and subsequent Executive Summary. We encourage you to take a look at both pieces and share with your networks!
This year the caucus would like to recognize an outstanding clinician for their work in the field. The deadline to apply is October 1st. Please see here for more details: CoH Clinician Award_2019 (1)
