Team-based care is a cornerstone to primary care. Current changes in health care are occurring more rapidly than changes in educational programs for health professionals and few formal educational models in ambulatory care do not address the skills needed to effectively work in transforming primary care teams. To address this gap between actual practice and education, members of the Minnesota Primary Care Transformation Collaborative developed an educational workshop, Essentials of Ambulatory Care, to provide opportunities to learn skills in teamwork and patient-centered care for postgraduate learners in medicine, nursing and pharmacy. In this session, the presenters will describe their evolving work, successful elements, future plans, and challenges they encountered.
Upon completion of this session participants will be able to:
- Identify effective models of interprofessional teamwork in ambulatory care settings.
- Describe how the Patient-Centered Observation Form is used to reinforce principles of patient centered care.
- Recognize how aspects of this work could be applied to other settings and learners
