Transforming a pediatric practice to the medical home model of care can be a complicated process. The National Center for Medical Home Implementation (NCMHI) aims to make that transformation easier and more understandable with three webinars that show pediatric practices and their teams how to create efficiency through team huddles, how to build a stronger medical home through family advisory groups, and how to enhance collaboration with families through care partnership support. Each webinar describes the strategy, reviews the benefits, and provides guidance on implementation in a practice setting and consists of an audio/video recording, a slide presentation, speaker notes, and participant questions and answers.

Learning Objectives

• Define and review the benefits of team huddles, family advisory groups, and care partnership support in pediatric practice.

• Explore specific pre-requisites and strategies to implement team huddles, family advisory groups, and care partnership support within a pediatric practice.

• Provide examples of best practices for pediatric clinicians and staff in pediatric practices pertinent to team huddles, family advisory groups, and care partnership support.
