JUN 2021 CCSS: Exploring Evidence-Based Practice in Modern Medicine Primary Care

June 24, 2021

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 healthcare 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 (DoD), several government agencies, 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 Continuing Education (CE)/Continuing Medical Education (CME) 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 will highlight current evidence-based practices, recommendations, initiatives and ethical considerations related to primary care. The DHA, J-7, CEPO has identified subject matter experts in ethics, research, academia and patient care from Georgetown University Medical Center, the DHA Clinical Communities, the DHA Hearing Center of Excellence, the Department of Defense Medical Ethics Center, Veterans Affairs, and National Institutes of Health. The educational intent of this event is to improve the practice, skills, and knowledge of health care providers across the Military Health System (MHS).

This CE/CME activity is provided through DHA, J-7, CEPO and is approved for a maximum total of 6.5 CE/CME credits.

Sessions 3 and 6 are registered for ASHA CEUs.
