Are you just starting out as a practice facilitator and need training?  Or do you have many years of broad experience but want grounding in patient-centered medical home content?  We're thrilled to announce that a unique training is coming to Washington for the first time in August.  

Practice Coaching for Primary Care Transformation (PCPCT) Training is a multi-faceted training program designed for leaders at all levels who have a formal or informal coaching role in primary care transformation efforts. The course is an orientation to, and comprehensive review of, the science of change in primary care practice and equips participants with practical tools and coaching skills necessary to engage and support teams as they evolve into high performing Patient-Centered Medical Homes.

Focused on the 10 Building Blocks of High Performing Primary Care (Bodenheimer & Ghorob 2013), the course explores national best practices implemented in high-performing clinics in areas such as team-based care, prompt access to care and population-based care. 

This workshop is designed for practice coaches who work with primary care practices to assist with transformation efforts towards high performing Patient Centered Medical Homes.

The Patient-Centered Primary Care Institute in partnership with CareOregon will host the program, with content provided by the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) Center for Excellence in Primary Care and our team here at MacColl.  UCSF and CareOregon have been teaching this course material since 2013 in an effort to bring clarity to the world of health care transformation.

PCPCT explores national best practices implemented in high-performing clinics such as team-based care, prompt access to care, and population-based care. Practice facilitators use this methodology by focusing on a few building blocks at a time, encouraging a health care clinic to start with the foundational blocks. Although every Building Block is important to implement and address in transformation efforts, the foundational blocks of strong leadership, knowing your patient panel, robust data collection and usage, and functioning teams are essential for lasting change to occur.

In addition to four full days of classroom training, the PCPCT program also includes a pre-training assessment, curriculum materials that coaches can use with practices, three months of optional post-training mentoring support, and a site visit to at least one local high performing primary care practice. This robust approach educates participants on the fundamentals of practice coaching while providing the resources needed to empower clinic teams in utilizing quality improvement methods for sustainable change. It is effective for all coaches, regardless of their experience.

Faculty include Tom Bodenheimer of the UCSF Center for Excellence in Primary Care, Marcelle Thurston of CareOregon, and the MacColl Center's Nicole Van Borkulo.

The registration fee includes four days of classroom training, a certificate of completion, a curricula binder, daily handout materials, a clinic site visit including transportation, optional follow up support and breakfast, lunch & water/coffee/tea during each day of the training. Lodging is not included in the registration fee.

PLEASE NOTE:  Registration is now closed, as we are at the participant limit.  Kindly contact PCPCT if you'd like to be added to their practice coach training mailing list to learn about future events.
