Grant Type: President’s Grant

Award Amount: $34,000

Grant Awarded: June 2014

Principal Investigator: Cynthia D. Smith, MD, FACP

This award supports a meeting of 20 nurse practitioners and primary care physicians to identify and evaluate educational models to promote high value care (HVC) and interprofessional learning.  The meeting will use the models to produce a blueprint for the creation and dissemination of team-based educational initiatives within the HVC program that include physician and nursing professionals co-learning. The meeting will also create a dissemination plan for the adapted HVC program with a possible pilot in the VA Centers for Excellence in Primary Care.
