Practice Change Series

The Practice Change Series (PCS) is a multifaceted educational format that includes an interactive lecture, problem-based learning (PBL) session, and facilitated Translation to Practice® virtual component.

The PCS PBL is two hours in length compared to the traditional one-hour format. Attendees engage as a cohort to implement new learnings with feedback from peers and expert faculty, identify a practice change element, and discuss implementation strategies. During the session all learners will complete the first step of t2p® and be introduced to the facilitated t2p® virtual facilitation component (to be completed within a 120-day cycle) that will help learners implement practice changes identified during the PBL session.
