Patient Self-Management Support of Chronic Conditions

Framework for Clinicians Seeking Recertification Credit (MOC Part IV & PI-CME)

Free, Self-contained Framework for Clinicians to Design Their Own QI Project. Using this module, clinicians can improve how they support their patients’ ability to self-manage chronic Conditions—Physicians, nurse practitioners, and PAs select chronic condition of interest to them (arthritis, asthma, COPD, depression, diabetes, heart disease, obesity/overweight) and enhance their skills for helping patients with chronic conditions while improving the patient experience. The easy-to-complete QI activity provides: step-by-step instructions and framework for the design and documentation of the QI project of interest to a clinician. Clinicians will survey how patients/parents have experienced the clinicians’ use of two self-management support techniques: 1. shared decisionmaking about prescription medications (when and if appropriate), and 2. talking about patients’ specific health goals. The clinician will then design and implement a rapid-cycle QI activity of interest to the clinician/practice using validated CAHPS QI measures. SMS resources for some chronic conditions, such as asthma and obesity, are appropriate for both pediatric and adult patients. Download the User Guide and interactive PDF file to your own computer for data collection and processing. We encourage yet do not require clinicians to work together to design and discuss impact of the quality improvement intervention program (Learn more below: Practices Can Help Clinicians Work Together to Complete Recertification Projects.)
