PCC webinar: Primary Care: A Team Sport?

Ask any sports coach about working with a team, and they will tell you there are many considerations, including which skill sets to assemble and how to manage and motivate a group of people toward a common goal. Team-based care is one of the Shared Principles of Primary Care, PCC’s vision for advanced primary care, which more than 350 organizations have embraced, and a necessary feature to achieve comprehensiveness and equity, among other principles. In a practice setting, leaders need to assess how a team meets patients’ needs and consider related logistical, infrastructure and payment frameworks. Who are the players on a primary care team, from physicians, nurses and other clinicians to behavioral health specialists, pharmacists and care coordinators? How can team members play well together and provide high-quality, comprehensive and equitable care for their patients? Who leads the team, and does leadership shift depending upon the context? What is the latest evidence about what contributes to team effectiveness? This webinar explored these questions and more with a diverse panel of experts on team-based care.

The full slide deck as prepared for the webinar is included on this page as a separate file, especially because during Tony Makarich's presentation, all slides were not shown due to a technical glitch with the webinar broadcasting software.
