Group Expedition Series

The Expedition Series is for physicians and their staff who want to find better processes within their practice and achieve better outcomes for their patients, even when they currently feel overworked. This Series engages physicians and their teams in an enriched and supported group learning environment to improve access, flow and outcomes in the primary care practice.

Learning Objectives

As you complete the Expedition Series, you will: 

  • Review your current practice including: your patient panel, their access & continuity to you
  • Identify opportunities to improve that matter to you 
  • Apply quality improvement methods and tools within your practice
  • Select and track measures that will help guide your improvement journey 
  • Use the EMR technology to inform practice improvement
  • Identify and develop other sources of practice data

 

This one-credit-per-hour Group Learning program meets the certification criteria of the College of Family Physicians of Canada and has been certified by the Office of Professional & Educational Development, Memorial University for up to 40.5 Mainpro+® credits.

Participation

Participation in the Expedition Series will require a team based approach over the course of a year. Working with a MyQ Practice Facilitator and supported by MyQ Senior Advisors, teams will take part in six learning sessions with additional intermittent teleconferences and practical testing of improvements in clinic. 

Participants will:

  • Attend six learning sessions with staff/team members (virtual and/or face-to-face, as appropriate)
  • Attend one-hour monthly PDSA webinars with staff/team members
  • Choose QI changes to test and implement in practice
  • Collaborate with MyQ Practice Facilitators to assess their current practice and test and implement chosen improvements
  • Share results of QI initiatives, including improvement measures, with the MyQ team and the Expedition Series learning group 

*If physicians do not currently have a team they can still take part in the Series.
