  2. Resources used to combat myths and misconceptions about adolescent immunizations.

AAFP TIPS: Transformation in Practice Series Demonstration

Tracey Allen-Ehrhart; Kate Freeman

The AAFP is preparing to launch a new non-CME resource for members, Practice Improvement modules. These modules are small “just-in-time” tools targeting practical challenges faced by family medicine during transformation. The modules can be produced and updated quickly and require relatively small investment of time and resources. They include ready-to-use tools, customizable training resources, and short, interactive learning modules to help practices make positive changes. We will demonstrate the modules and provide an opportunity for Q&A and feedback on future topics of interest to members. 

Learning Objectives

  1. Discuss Practice Improvement Modules and how they can be used in a  primary care practice setting.
