Teleconference Education And Management Support (TEAMS): An Interprofessional Strategy for Improving Primary Care Management of Patients with Chronic Pain
This project will develop interprofessional consultation/education coaching sessions that will be case-based, PCP-driven, and team-focused. Using ubiquitous and accessible telehealth methods (teleconferencing), we will connect a group of PCPs with other PCPs and practitioners from a variety of disciplines who treat patients with CP. These monthly conferences will include clinical pearls, a PCP-presented patient case of concern for discussion and advice, and previous case follow-up/question and answer. The TEAMS coaching will not just describe evidence-based care, but will coach PCPs on how best to provide that care, including better assessments, use of EHR tools, formal referrals, care coordination and use of a wide variety of community resources.
