June 22, 2023

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 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 thehealth 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 will explore the evidence-based practices in primary care through educational content created by military and civilian Subject Matter Experts specializing in bioethics, research, healthcare, and academia. Each session is designed to refine the quality of care, achieve the best outcomes, and improve population health.  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. 

Sessions 1, 2 and 4 will be eligible to award ASHA CEUs.
