Henry J. Austin Health Center, a Federally Qualified Health Center in Trenton, will work with the Trenton Health Team to enhance the responsibilities of the medical/health home team to introduce an integrated primary care model within the city of Trenton, folding mental health and substance abuse screening and treatment into the primary care equation. In addition to Henry J. Austin Health Center, the primary care practices at the City of Trenton Department of Health, Capital Health and St. Francis Medical Center will send nurses, medical assistants, receptions and community health workers/patient navigators to be trained in the Duke University Population Care Coordinator Program, Johns Hopkins University Nursing Guided Care program, Mercer County Technical Institute’s Elevating the Role of the Medical/Clinical Assistant program and the Camden AHEC’s Community Health Worker Institute. Upon completion, the skills sets of the medical/health home team members will be enhanced, improving each team member’s ability to provide comprehensive patient care.
