  1. Create a safe environment that promotes participatory discussion among multidisciplinary team members
  2. Assist their multidisciplinary team in identifying and addressing challenges/barriers that impact case outcomes
  3. Lead team members to make collaborative decisions
  4. Effectively communicate their role as team facilitator

Training Participants:  This training is limited to 20 participants and, due to high demand, only one individual from each CAC may apply. The training is intended for CAC staff or MDT members who are responsible for coordinating team activities, facilitating case review, and ensuring the successful functioning of their team. Participants must attend the training in its entirety.

Training Fees:  There is no fee to attend this training.  WRCAC will provide three nights of lodging at the Town and Country Hotel for each participant.  Airfare, meals and other expenses  are the responsibility of the participant.
