Resources for Emerging and Active Partnerships
- Download an MLP toolkit (a new toolkit will be available online in December 2013)
- Purchase a copy of the MLP textbook
As you set a vision with your partners about what kind of MLP you will build -- who it will serve and what the priority activities will be -- keep in mind that healthcare engagement -- the vivid participation of healthcare partners at all levels of the healthcare institution -- is the single most critical element for MLP success and sustainability.
Download a handout on MLP cost-sharing, the continuum of MLP integration between health and legal partners, and a self-assessment to see where your MLP falls on the spectrum.
- The Medical-Legal Partnership Blog answers common technical assistance questions and shares news and trends in MLP.
The MLP Update is NCMLP's twice monthly newsletter. Fill out the form below to sign-up.
- The MLP textbook, Poverty, Health and Law: Readings and Cases for Medical-Legal Partnership is the defining text on MLP.
- NCMLP's research team authored a white paper summarizing the salient literature on medical-legal partnership. This review of the evidence presents the need for legal and health services integration, describes the essential components of the MLP model as well as the process for delivering integrated services, and finally, explores the state of preliminary evidence of MLP impact on patients, providers, and communities at large.
- In a 30 minute podcast, Human Media’s David Freudberg talks to doctors across the U.S. about how legal care is improving the health of their patients and how lawyers are helping them to be better doctors.
- Our academic article library contains more than 100 articles in health, public health and law journals on the workings, impact and efficacy of medical-legal partnership.
Due to the high volume of requests to join the Medical-Legal Partnership Network (and be added to the map), NCMLP will consider applications twice a year, in January and June. An application will be posted in late fall for consideration in January 2014.
Our community counts on us as a safety net hospital, whether or not they are disadvantaged patients, we have a very strong standing in the community. I think its things like this, innovations like this, that demonstrate to the community that we are here for you and that we are thinking about how to improve. We aren’t willing to stay with the status quo. I think it improves our standing.
