Homestudy: JUN 2022 CCSS: Enhancing Primary Care: Refining Proficiencies to Improve Patient Outcomes
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. This continuing education (CE)/continuing medical education (CME) event is conducted 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 other civilian experts for recruitment of academic subject matter experts (SMEs), clinicians, and researchers to present on current promising, evidence-based research and best practices, thus enhancing the overall educational experience. Participants are expected to apply what they learned in providing patient care individually and collaboratively as a team towards improved patient outcomes.
This event highlights current evidence-based practices, policies, and recommendations related to primary care services. Such health care topics include ethical considerations for dual relationships, care of service members with traumatic brain injury, musculoskeletal care, efficiency strategies for provision of care, nutrition and diabetes management, and COVID-19 Palliative Care Protocol updates. The educational content is created by SMEs in the ethical, research, academic and medical domains of the 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).
