Register Now: January 29 Webinar on How Practice Facilitators Can Support Patient Engagement in Primary Care
AHRQ is hosting a webinar January 29 from 3 to 4:30 p.m. ET about how practice facilitators can support patient engagement. Practice facilitators can help practices improve how they engage patients by helping them gather feedback and ideas from their patients and use the information to redesign visits and services to support better patient engagement and improved patient experience. The webinar will feature the experiences of a practice facilitator who worked successfully with practice leaders and patients to transform diabetes care visits in primary care. Patient engagement is a central element of the patient-centered medical home as well as a patient’s own experience of their care. Speakers include:
- Lyndee Knox, Ph.D., CEO, LA Net Community Health Resource Network, Los Angeles
- Cindy Brach, M.P.P., senior health policy researcher, AHRQ
- Adrienne Deswert, R.N., B.S.N., R.N. Care Manager, Annville Family Medicine, Annville, Pennsylvania
This is the fourth in a series of webinars hosted by AHRQ’s Prevention and Chronic Care Program to share the Agency’s tools and resources for training primary care practice facilitators. The first three webinar topics were practice facilitation case studies, use of health information technology and supporting leaders to promote patient safety. Registration is open.
