10th Annual Nuka System of Care Conference

Update: The 10th annual Nuka System of Care Conference is going virtual! The conference page will have more information very soon about registration and sessions available. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the SCF Learning Institute.

Registration is now open for the 10th Annual Nuka System of Care Conference, as well as the pre-conference Core Concepts workshop.

The 10th Annual Nuka System of Care Conference is just a few months away! Become a leader in health care innovation by joining health care professionals from around the world to learn from the two-time Baldrige award-winning Nuka System of Care. Registration is now open for both general conference and the pre-conference Core Concepts workshop.

Pre-Conference Workshop

This is a session of SCF’s Core Concepts training. Core Concepts is a three-day training that teaches communication and relationship-building skills that SCF’s providers use to support customer-owners on their journey toward wellness. Participants join small Learning Circles and learn tools to work more effectively with both customers and co-workers. Participants learn how they impact others, how to articulate their story from the heart, how to understand their personal and professional aspirations, and methods for good dialogue and productive conversations. All SCF employees attend Core Concepts, and the training has been called the “quintessential aspect” of the Nuka System of Care.

SCF has also worked with other organizations to adapt Core Concepts for their use, based on their organizational values. So far, Core Concepts has been implemented at Cherokee Indian Hospital, Great Plains Tribal Chairman’s Health Board, Cree Board of Health and Social Services of James Bay, Kenaitze Indian Tribe, and the Veterans Health Administration. Several other organizations are currently in the process of working with SCF to implement Core Concepts.
