WCMEW – Team-Based Care Summit: “Transforming Concepts into Reality”





Dear Wisconsin Health Care Team Leader,

Health care teams are invited to submit a project to be showcased as a poster display at the second annual Wisconsin Council on Medical Education and Workforce (WCMEW) Team-Based Care Summit on November 12. Click here for more information on the Summit.

The goals of the 2015 summit are to 1) promote inter-professional learning and dialogue about team-based care to support system change in practice and 2) describe and provide tools and strategies to advance team-based care in Wisconsin. The planning committee has set aside time during the Summit for a poster showcase to allow teams to learn from and network with one another.

Project for Poster Display Submission Guidelines
Deadline for project submission: October 1

Projects focused on the following topics will be considered for poster displays at the Summit:

  • Using metrics – Posters can include a discussion of patient population data to shape team-based care populations or a discussion of care team outcomes measurement.
  • Leveraging learners to support care teams – Posters can included a discussion of the use of students, residents, or other learners as team members. Alternatively, posters can discuss how team-based care is being incorporated into healthcare provider learning experiences.
  • Workflows and/or protocols – Posters can share workflow and/or protocol examples related to patient diseases/conditions.
  • Tools and procedures – Posters can share tools, procedures, resources that assist teams in caring for patients and assist patients in self-managing their chronic conditions.

To submit, please complete the form located at: http://events.SignUp4.net/15TBCPosterShowcase by 5:00 pm on October 1.
A description of your project (250 words or less) must address one of the four topics listed above.
