In-Person Training Modules
OPS’s training sessions are designed for pediatric primary care teams (medical providers, nurses, medical assistants, mental health providers, and administrative staff), with a goal of implementing practice change and improving child and adolescent health care throughout Oregon. Training sessions cover how to implement standardized screening and improve understanding of assessment procedures, treatment, referral, and community resources.
We use a variety of training methodologies, including didactic lecture, group discussion, role play, and video demonstration. Continuing Medical Education (CME) is offered for these sessions and Maintenance of Certification (MOC) – Part IV is available for post-training quality improvement projects.
