Practice Facilitation Handbook: A Resource for New Facilitators and Their Trainers Webinar
Friday, November 15, 2013
11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. EST
Practice facilitators are specially trained to work with primary care practices to improve the quality of care, patient experiences with care, and patient outcomes. Practice facilitation programs are burgeoning, and with that growth come the need to train facilitators in the skills and content they need to succeed. AHRQ developed the Practice Facilitation Handbook, based on a demonstration program that used facilitators in safety-net practices, to assist in training new practice facilitators. During this webinar, Handbook co-authors Lyndee Knox and Cindy Brach will provide an orientation to practice facilitation and an overview of the Handbook and its 21 training modules. Robert McNellis will also share current AHRQ work in developing a comprehensive practice facilitation curriculum.
