Implementation Strategies for +3 of the 10 +3 Building Blocks of Primary Care Teaching Clinics

This 90-minute special session will focus on the +3 concepts (Resident Scheduling, Resident Engagement and Resident Worklife) of the University of California, San Francisco (UCFS) Center for Excellence in Primary Care’s (CEPC) 10 +3 Building Blocks for transforming teaching practices. We will briefly review the methods used by our team in performing and analyzing primary care resident teaching clinics through site visits to identify the best practices among high-performing sites. Then this interactive session will engage a panel of your peers from high-performing clinics to present concrete, successful implementation strategies. Audience engagement will foster discussion about what participants' sites are currently doing in each relevant area and next action steps for implementation. These discussions will focus on: 1) new methods for scheduling residents’ clinic time that facilitate good patient access and continuity of care; and 2) resident engagement in the Building Blocks and the impact on worklife.
