Medical Home Training and Resources
This page contains training materials and resources from training events in Utah. While the overarching theme is improving
the medical home, some of the training events focused on specific topics such as screening, transition to adulthood, and obesity.
Please scroll down to find the various topics.
The Learning Collaborative Model
Traning events were conducted using the "Learning Collaborative" model wherein medical practice teams meet together to learn
about a specific topic (a Learning Session), return to their practices and implement what they have learned in changing daily
processes, and follow-up with the facilitating organization and other practice teams to share what they have learned and problem-solve
together to overcome challenges. The process usually lasts from six to nine months and inlcudes the pre-registration; the
learning session; weekly practice team meetings; ongoing quality improvement; chart audits by the practice teams; site visits
by the facilitating organization; and conference calls with the practice teams. The practice teams usually consist of the
primary care provider, office manager, nurse or medical assistant, parent partner, and care coordinator (may be the nurse).
Utah Integrated Services Project
The Utah Integrated Services Project's (UISP) overall goal was the systematic integration of community-based services for
children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN) and their families throughout Utah. Component Goals included:1)
Designing and implementing the leadership and infrastructure to accomplish and sustain this integration; 2) Using the Learning
Collaborative model, integrating the six core components into Utah community systems; 3) Provideing and continually enhancing
statewide resources and information to support the integration of the 6 Core Components into communities.
The Learning Collaborative consisted of five Learning Sessions (LS) that covered the concepts of medical home; early and continuous
screening; and transition issues from birth into adulthood. Presentations and materials from the five Learning Sessions are
provided in the sections below.
