This strategic initiative will assist us in promoting Role-Based Practice. The first step on this path is for participants to complete pre-reading prior to each day of class.

While the classes are mandatory, the readings are recommended. The CEUs for the program are only given to those who complete all of the out-of-class assignments as well as attend each of the three days.

Homework is provided below, as well as in your folders which you will receive on Day 1 of your program. It is important that you bring your folders back with you to Days 2 and 3 of the program. Below is a list of homework and expectations for each day of the program:

Day 1:

Day 2:

  • Application of Models: Come to the session prepared with an exemplar of how (a) patient outcome(s) improved based on the learning from Day 1
  • Make sure to reach out to a coach/champion to have a session before Day 2. If you have not yet had your coach/champion follow-up session, or have any questions about who your coach/champion is, please contact your unit director as soon as possible.
  • Day 2 Reading
