OPCPCC Learning Centers   

OPCPCC LogoThe Ohio Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative (OPCPCC) is composed of five learning centers. An initial, and key, role of the learning centers involves a resource filtering or sharing of resources including both a simple sharing of resources that currently exist, as well as creating resources, learning opportunities, and facilitation of conversations. The learning centers are as follows:

Patient Engagement Learning Center: Focused on making sure the patient's perspective, needs, etc., shape the development of PCMH. The patient advisory learning center is chaired by Angela C. Dawson.

The Patient Engagement Learning Center has compiled a PCMH Patient Engagement Toolbox.  Resources included fall in the following categories:

  • What is a PCMH? (Tools for patients)
  • Patner with Patients (Tools for providers and patients)
  • Self-care goals (Tools for patients)
  • Improve patient safety (Tools for patients and providers)
  • Tools for the practice (Tools for providers/staff)

The complete toolbox may be accessed on the Ohio Academy of Family Physicians website

The Patient Engagement Learning Center of the Ohio Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative (OPCPCC) hosts a quarterly webinar series to educate Ohio primary care practices, healthcare consumers, and stakeholders about best practices in patient engagement in the Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) model of care.  Past webinars are archived in the OPCPCC patient engagement toolbox.

Workforce Learning Center: The former PCMH Education Advisory Group of the PCMH Education Pilot Project is now the OPCPCC Workforce Learning Center.  This learning center meets 3-4 times each year to continue scholarship and interprofessional curriculum work. This learning center is chaired by Pat Ecklar, MD.

Communications and Education Learning Center: This learning center created a PCMH consumer/patient website, which was launched in July of 2014.  A consumer focus group meeting was held on Sept. 9, 2014 to obtain input to refine the website content.  The learning center developed this flyer to promote the consumer website:  Consumer website flyer

The Communications and Education Learning Center is chaired by Kate Mahler.  This learning center is not currently meeting.
