Teams will hear from expert speakers in their chosen topic track on best practices in screening protocols, up-to-date guidelines to follow, and the importance of QI in patient care and population health as a whole.
In addition to the team training experience on Saturday, April 8, participants will also utilize online modules that have been custom developed for each of the four clinical topics. By utilizing the module, practices will be able to measure their team engagement, benchmark patient data, select a pathway for care delivery intervention, and re-measure outcome data after a six-month change period. The module will systematically guide participants through a Plan, Do, Study, Act (PDSA) cycle as a method to improve patient care and recognize practice success.
More information on the Summit and each individual track can be found on the OAFP website.
