AHRQ’s Primary Care Practice Facilitation Curriculum: An Expanded Resource for Workforce Development
AHRQ’s recently released Primary Care Practice Facilitation Curriculum is a resource designed to help train practice facilitators (also known as practice coaches), quality improvement coaches or practice enhancement assistants to work with primary care practices. Practice facilitation is an evidence-based approach to quality improvement in primary care practices. This is the latest addition to the portfolio of AHRQ products that support the growth of practice facilitation. The practice facilitation curriculum is organized into five parts: Use of Adult Education Methods in Teaching PCPF Core Competencies; Introduction to Practice Facilitation; Competencies for Practice Facilitators; In the Practice; and Implementing the Care Model and Patient-Centered Medical Home.
