Clinical Communities Speaker Series: Advances in Women's Health 23-JAN-2020

January 23, 2020

Program Description

The Defense Health Agency (DHA), J-7, Continuing Education Program Office (CEPO) Clinical Communities Speaker Series (CCSS) events are designed to address the professional practice gaps of our learners in order to improve the care that our health care professionals deliver. These educational series are intended to achieve results that reflect a change in skills, competence, and performance of the health care team, and patient outcomes. Collaboration occurs with the Department of Defense, several government agencies, and academic partners, and other civilian experts for recruitment of academic subject matter experts, clinicians, and researchers to present on current promising, evidence-based research and best practices, thus enhancing the overall educational experience provided to our participants. Participants are expected to apply what they learned in providing patient care individually and collaboratively as a team towards improved patient outcomes.

The topics covered offer Continued Education (CE) accredited content to all health care providers and support the full range of military operations in order to sustain the health of all those entrusted to DHA’s medical care. The event will:

• Instruct health care providers on successful implementation of relevant evidence-based and best practice strategies for the health care team.

• Demonstrate how learning new skills will improve overall readiness, health outcomes, and possibly reduce unnecessary costs.

• Engage learners in specific training and case vignettes for the application of acquired skills in instilling the importance of applying improvements in the collaborative team approach, which results in positively impacting patient care.

This event highlights current evidence-based practices, recommendations and initiatives, ethical considerations, clinical care pathways, and public health screenings related to women’s health. The educational content are created by Subject Matter Experts in the ethical, research, academe and medical domains of military and civilian health care sectors. The primary focus of this event aims to enhance the quality of patient outcomes and population health by providing advanced continuing education opportunities to improve the practice, skills, and knowledge of health care providers across the Military Health System (MHS).

This Continuing Education (CE) activity is provided through DHA J-7 CEPO and is approved for a maximum total of 7.0 CE credits.
