Who Should Participate

This activity is designed for a broad audience that includes physicians, nurses, pharmacists, case managers and any other community-based clinician whose scope of practice includes treating patients with chronic pain.

Overview of Methods and Participation

The focus of this initiative is the management of chronic pain within a Patient-Centered Medical Home context. Five organizations were awarded grants from Pfizer to work with 5-10 physician practices each to design and implement a comprehensive learning and change strategy for a community-based patient centered medical home (PCMH) model. The project was managed by the Physicians’ Institute and the California Academy of Family Physicians. In order to showcase project successes and lessons learned at the practice level with the broader provider community, a video series was produced which highlighted four practices that participated in this project. The four practices were located in Maine, New Jersey, Missouri and Kentucky. A videography team traveled to each of the four practices, which enabled members of the practice to fully engage in telling their stories. An introductory video explains the project and highlights selected outcomes. Final reports and other resources from the grantees are posted on the Physicians’ Institute website,
