Join AHRQ on Thursday August 14 from 3 to 4 p.m. for Creating Patient-Centered Team-Based Care.

As more primary care practices adopt or enhance team-based care, some patients and providers have expressed concerns about potential disruptions to important aspects of care. Areas for concern have included the relationships and communication between patients and providers, along with the ability of multiple providers to deliver coordinated care that meets patient needs, cultural values, and preferences. How can practices best address these concerns and ensure that the care provided by teams is patient-centered?

This webinar is geared to practices, practice facilitators, and others who help practices improve health care delivery, and decision makers who are interested in learning more about how practices can deliver team-based care that is patient centered. The webinar will offer concrete strategies that practices can consider to help adopt a patient-centered approach to planning and delivering team-based care. It will also cover strategies practices can use to create teams that can effectively deliver this care while building and maintaining strong relationships with patients. Featured speakers include:

  • Jonathan Sugarman, M.D., M.P.H., President and Chief Executive Officer, Qualis Health
  • Pamela Mitchell, Ph.D., M.S., Past-President, American Academy of Nursing, and Executive Associate Dean, University of Washington School of Nursing
  • Jennifer Sweeney, M.A., Vice President, National Partnership for Women & Families
