Practice Facilitator Training Fall/Winter 2021-2022

Registration is now full.

A Practice Facilitator (PF) plays a key complementary role in supporting clinic teams in their transformation to Patient's Medical Homes (PMHs). PFs guide and support member clinics as they take incremental steps toward sustainable process improvement. PF Training provides participants with practical skills and knowledge, including: the context of primary care, the PMH and Health Neighbourhood (HN) content, quality improvement and modes of influence.

Training consists of 7 online modules, with corresponding virtual Zoom Connect sessions for large and small group discussions related to content clarification and application of skills and knowledge.  It is essential that participants complete the online module prior to the scheduled Zoom Connect session. For the Zoom sessions, participants will require access to a computer with strong WiFi, a web camera and microphone. 

Dates and times of Zoom sessions are noted below. 

∙             Connect Session 1*: Tuesday, November 2nd; 1:30 - 3:30pm

∙             Connect Session 2: Monday, November 22nd; 1:30 - 3:00pm

∙             Connect Session 3: Monday, December 13th; 1:30 - 3:00pm

∙             Connect Session 4: Monday, January 10th; 1:30 - 3:00pm

∙             Connect Session 5: Monday, January 31st; 1:30 - 3:00pm

∙             Connect Session 6: Monday, February 14th; 1:30 - 3:00pm

∙             Connect Session 7: Monday, February 28th; 1:30 - 3:00pm 

*Participants are expected to complete the pre-work online module prior to Connect Session 1. 

To be eligible to take PF training, participants will need to identify at least one clinic that they will apply their learning with throughout the training program. Additionally, that clinical team will need to identify a change package (from AMA, e.g. panel, screening and prevention, opioid, process improvements, CII-CPAR, continuity, care planning (PACT)) to implement.

This program is facilitated by AMA ACTT (Alberta Medical Association Accelerating Change Transformation Team).
