Doctors can now access the first series of PSP’s small group learning sessions (SGLS). Practice Improvement: Making Quality Improvement Work for You is a series of short, interactive sessions that introduce doctors to accessible and practical tools to make practice improvements in ways that are significant to them, their team, and their patients.

The first series has two sessions available:

  • Session 1 focuses on how physicians can identify, plan for, and begin to implement practice improvements.
  • Session 2 supports physicians in using data and measurement to implement practice improvement.

Doctors are encouraged  to take each session in progressive order as information from each session builds upon the previous session.

After participating in a session, physicians can receive sessional payment for working through an action plan that connects the learnings to a practice improvement activity. RSTs and peer mentors are available to assist doctors in identifying a practice improvement activity  and with developing an action plan.

Each session is eligible for up to four CFPC credits.

Upcoming SGLS sessions and series  anticipated to be available in spring 2017 include:

  • Managing Dementia in Family Practice session aimed to help doctors identify patients with mild to moderate dementia, assess and address common concerns, and manage their needs with both pharmacological and non-pharmacological resources.
  • Team-based Care series aimed to support family doctors working with teams of health professionals.
