Career opportunities The programme is aimed to provide doctors with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to become effective Family Physicians. It is relevant to doctors of all backgrounds and experience from early career doctors to those established in other specialities. The programme provides a high quality Masters level qualification in Family Medicine and builds on the skills already gained by the student in their post graduate clinical training. It is not a recognised vocational training course and cannot be used for direct entry to clinical practice as a Family Physician. We may also consider applicants who are in a profession allied to medicine or have relevant work experience in a clinical context.
Empanelment interacts closely with team formation because teams assume responsibility for their patient panel.
Empanelment allows practices to adjust the workload among clinicians and teams. Defined panels provide a denominator for performance measures block 2. First she needs to know the denominator: how many patients with diabetes are in her panel.
Empanelment is also essential for identifying the patient population and stratifying by need for population management block 6.
Block 4: Team-Based Care High-performing practices view teams as a necessity for the survival of adult primary care. Clinicians without teams caring for a panel of 2, patients would spend To address this issue, high-performing practices generally organize their teams around teamlets—a stable pairing of a clinician and clinical assistant s who work together every day and share responsibility for the health of their panel.
Some high-performing practices introduce side-by-side colocation of clinicians and nonclinician staff in common work areas called pods , agree on ground rules that establish a respectful culture, perform daily huddles, and write standing orders empowering nonclinician staff to share the care.
Practices may increase their panel size by assigning a subpanel of patients with uncomplicated chronic conditions to nurses or pharmacists who manage the chronic condition using standing orders.
Patients are not told what to do but are engaged in shared decision making that respects their personal goals. For patients with chronic conditions, health coaching see block 6 provides a framework for self-management support. Three population-based functions provide major opportunities for sharing the care: panel management, health coaching, and complex care management. Panel management involves a staff member, usually a medical assistant or nurse, periodically checking the practice registry to identify patients who are due for routine services eg, mammograms, colorectal cancer screening, and HbA1c or low-density lipoprotein cholesterol laboratory work.
Alternatively, the panel manager can check the health maintenance screen on the electronic medical record before a huddle or medical visit to look for care gaps for these services. Teams headed by registered nurses or social workers have been shown to improve care and reduce costs for patients needing complex care management.
Reaching these goals requires the front desk staff to encourage patients to see the clinician to whom they are empaneled. Though the science of access is well-developed, 35 practices frequently fail in their efforts to reduce patient waiting. Access and continuity may be in tension if patients prefer to see any clinician today than their own clinician next week. High-performing practices allow patients to decide which takes priority.
Another pillar—care coordination—is the responsibility of primary care to arrange for services that primary care is unable to provide. In high-performing systems, clinicians automatically learn when their patients have been discharged from the hospital, and specialist referrals are used to their greatest capacity because diagnostic studies are secured in advance by the primary care clinician. High-performing practices often include a care coordinator or referral coordinator whose sole responsibility is care coordination.
Block Template of the Future The crown of the building blocks is the template of the future. Clinicians would have fewer and longer in-person visits and protected time for e-visits and telephone visits. With a team empowered to share the care, clinicians would be able to assume a new role—clinical leader and mentor of the team.
