On July 19, 2022, a webinar was held to introduce participants to the Self-Assessment for Modification of Anti-Racism Tool (SMART), an innovative self-directed quality improvement tool developed by the American Association for Community Psychiatry (AACP) to assist community mental health organizations in addressing structural racism. The presenters described the process by which SMART was developed, including its grounding in input from community mental health providers and existing health inequity frameworks. The domains and items of SMART as well as its application process were outlined. Presenters also provided lessons from on-the-ground applications of SMART in diverse community mental health settings.
There was significant interest in furthering the conversation around SMART implementation looks like in practice. This follow-up dialogue will allow for space to further engage with both the developers of SMART, and leaders who have used SMART in their organizations. Lessons learned will be shared, and questions answered. Join us for an important opportunity to learn from one another!
Health Management Associates (HMA) developed the HMA Implementation Accelerator, a leadership development framework that utilizes implementation science to address on-the-ground challenges and lead successful implementation efforts. This presentation will cover the framework and components of Implementation Accelerator.
