Practice Efficiency: How to Effectively Incorporate Advanced Practice Providers into Your Practice
Description
To support the Visioning PM&R BOLD Envisioned Future Models, all of which require an adequate physiatric workforce to meet the demand, the Academy has launched a series of online educational content for Physiatrists and Advanced Practice Providers (APPs). Working with APPs is one critical pathway to maximizing the workforce in physiatry. To accomplish this, education has been developed in two areas:

  • Education for physiatrists regarding the benefits of effectively collaborating with APPs in their own setting, and how to approach incorporating APPs into practice.
  • Education for APPs so that they can more effectively be integrated into physiatric practice.

The educational content for this online module includes:
  • When and How to Hire and Advanced Practice Provider
  • The Functions and Role of an Advanced Practice Provider

Within each of the modules are multiple presentations that dig dep into the topics, providing a beneficial educational experience for the participant. A strong focus of this educational content is for the Academy to increase dynamic member engagement with all membership segments, not only to support physiatrists in anticipation of a growing workforce need, but to also cultivate a welcoming environment for our physiatrists that work with APP’s as well as APP’s themselves.

Method of Study
Upon viewing the presentations, participants will need to complete a session evaluation, which includes a reflection on learning, in order to claim credit. The presentations can be viewed at one's own pace and credit can be claimed after viewing the sessions.

Accreditation Statement
The American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Designation of Credit
The American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (AAPM&R) designates this enduring material for a maximum of 1.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
