Practice Facilitation Handbook: Training Modules for New Facilitators and Their Trainers

Description

The Practice Facilitation Handbook is designed to assist in the training of new practice facilitators as they begin to develop the knowledge and skills needed to support meaningful improvement in primary care practices. It evolved from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality's Integrating Chronic Care and Business Strategies in the Safety Net toolkit. That toolkit was developed to aid safety net practices in implementing the Chronic Care Model, now commonly referred to as the Care Model, in their practices.

The handbook consists of 21 training modules, each 30 to 90 minutes long with varying requirements for presession preparation for learners. Each module contains a Trainer's Guide, which includes a checklist of materials, the learning objectives for the session, and a list of readings and activities designed to develop basic knowledge and skills.

The modules are organized into four parts:

  • Part 1: Introduction to Practice Facilitation
  • Part 2: Core Competencies for Practice Facilitators
  • Part 3: In the Practice
  • Part 4: Implementing the Care Model and Patient-Centered Medical Home
