Learning Communities

Further supporting the educational module application, professionals who have completed the online modules can participate in Learning Communities. Learning Communities are monthly case consultation discussions via HIPAA-compliant video conference meetings and/or internet-based secured chat rooms. Each meeting will begin with a very brief presentation by the facilitator on a topic related to managing MCC in older adults. The remainder of the time will be for discussion of challenging cases or issues and consultation with an expert interdisciplinary team.

Quote from a Nurse Practitioner at Cherokee Health System:

Even though it may seem inconvenient to stop the work flow to attend the CATCH-ON groups it has been worth it. Topics have always been applicable to practice. More so relevant to current trends with problem solving for patient cases.

For example, learning about fall prevention, medication de-prescribing, visits surrounding advance directives have been easy to apply to practice.

I’m looking forward to new topics and this continued learning opportunity.
