MICMT Complex Care Management Training

AS OF JUNE 2020: This Training Curriculum Has Been Replaced With Team-Based Care Training

Team Based Care (TBC)

Introduction of Team-Based Care to Optimize Care Delivery Impact

Overview

Provider Delivered Care Management and Care Coordination support the concepts of the Chronic Care Model, the Patient Centered Medical Home and the Team-based Care approach. Together, multi-disciplinary team members partner to form the practice care team to; effectively empower patients and their families, engage patients in self-management and health behavior change, positively affect patient self-care practices and decision-making, provide comprehensive assessment and care planning using shared decision making, implement evidence based interventions and advocate for the right care, at the right time and in the right place.

Multi-disciplinary care teams work across all care settings from hospital, to clinic, to home and are well positioned to connect patients, providers and services to assure that care is coordinated, safe and truly patient-centered. They are part of the patient’s medical home care team and work collaboratively to prioritize patients in need of specialized care coordination services.

Team-based roles may include enhanced discharge planning, holistic support and assessment of social determinants of health, improved internal patient transfers and external transfers to other facilities or to home, and knowledge of psychosocial changes that impact patient care options.

Mi-CCSI courses are fully vetted with care management leaders and training attendees. Curricula development, facilitated by MICMT, was co-developed with trainers across Michigan, to include IHP, Lynn Klima, PTI, and NPO. Mi-CCSI ensures trainers are well versed in the concepts and have extensive experience to offer insight and application of the skills, tools, and information covered.

Engagement Training

Introduction of Patient Engagement to Optimize Patient Self-management

Overview

Provider Delivered Care Management and Care Coordination support the concepts of the Chronic Care Model, the Patient Centered Medical Home and the Team-based Care approach. Together, multi-disciplinary team members partner to form the practice care team to; effectively empower patients and their families, engage patients in self-management and health behavior change, positively affect patient self-care practices and decision-making, provide comprehensive assessment and care planning using shared decision making, implement evidence based interventions and advocate for the right care, at the right time and in the right place.

Key to these interactions is communication. Effective communication encompasses motivational interviewing, cultural and ethical considerations, health literacy, and importantly the patient’s views and desires.

Individuals attending this training will be introduced to these key concepts, have the opportunity to learn from one another, and practice skills via role playing, and unique to the Mi-CCSI training, participate in a “simulation interview” with a trained standardized patient. Subsequent to this interview, the attendee will be provided an assessment of the interview from the patient perspective.

Mi-CCSI courses are fully vetted with care management leaders and training attendees. Curricula development, facilitated by MICMT, was co-developed with trainers across Michigan, to include IHP, Lynn Klima, PTI, and NPO. Mi-CCSI ensures trainers are well versed in the concepts and have extensive experience to offer insight and application of the skills, tools, and information covered.
