Core Practice Facilitator Training (formerly Improvement Facilitator Training)
Who should attend?
PCN staff designated to fulfill the Practice Facilitator role.
Note: Training is open to clinic staff; however, ideally the participant should be facilitating multiple clinics.
What is it about?
A Practice Facilitator (PF) plays a key complementary role in supporting clinic teams in their transformation to Patient’s Medical Homes (PMHs). PFs guide and support member clinics as they take incremental steps toward sustainable process improvement. PF training provides participants with practical skills and knowledge, including: the context of primary care, the PMH and Health Neighbourhood content, quality improvement and modes of influence.

PF training consists of 3 in-person training days. Day 1 is followed by a gap of approximately 3 weeks, allowing time to complete homework prior to Days 2 and 3.
Sessions run from 9:00am - 4:30pm with registration 8:45am - 9:00am.
- Participants are expected to complete assigned pre-work prior to Day 1 and homework between Day 1 and 2. Pre-work will be emailed about approximately 2 weeks before Day 1.
- To be eligible to take PF training, participants will need to identify at least 1 clinic that they will apply their learning with throughout the training program. Additionally, that clinical team will need to identify a change package (from AMA, e.g. panel, ASaP, opioid process improvements, continuity, care planning [PaCT]) to implement.
- Ongoing mentoring and support from AMA ACTT, as well as a provincial Community of Practice
- A light lunch will be provided
This program is facilitated by AMA ACTT (Alberta Medical Association Accelerating Change Transformation Team).
