Practice Facilitator Training Winter 2022

‚ÄčPlease note this session 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.

PF Training consists of seven online self directed learning modules and is interspersed with seven interactive virtual sessions.  For the Zoom sessions, participants will require access to a computer, a web camera and microphone.

Participants are expected to complete assigned pre-work prior to module 1 and homework between modules 1 - 7.  

Session 1: Monday, January 17th;  1:30 - 3:30pm
Session 2: Tuesday, February 8th; 1:30 - 3:00pm
Session 3: Tuesday, March 1st; 1:30 - 3:00pm
Session 4: Monday, March 21st; 1:30 - 3:00pm
Session 5: Monday, April 25th; 1:30 - 3:30pm
Session 6: Monday, May 16th; 1:30 - 3:00pm
Session 7: Tuesday, June 7th; 1:30 - 3:00pm
