Our current work proceeds directly from our early emphasis on activated patients and proactive practice teams
We continue to aim to better understand and inform the state of the art in high-functioning primary care teams. Recent work has included visiting innovative primary care teams across the U.S. to learn how care is being delivered by teams in new ways.
An effective primary care workforce is essential to better health and health care for all
To date, academic studies that examine primary care staff, training, and team functioning are still relatively scarce. Many organizations recognize the need to revamp their workforce, and are experimenting with innovative team structures and role definitions.
Transforming primary care: healthier patients, happier staff
We know transformation of any kind is hard work. That's why we created the Improving Primary Care Team Guide through our PCT-LEAP work. An online tool for primary care teams, The Team Guide helps build high-functioning teams and provides practical, hands-on tools—easy to use, actionable and measureable.
