Providing technical assistance and educational support across the U.S. HTC network.

The NHPCC provides technical assistance and educational support to the U.S. Hemophilia Treatment Center Network (USHTCN) as part of the National Capacity Building segment of its grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). Supportive services are provided specifically in the areas of quality improvement. Based on feedback from HTC comprehensive care providers, the NHPCC has identified the need to improve the quality of care through more effective patient engagement. To support this need, the NHPCC is offering a new training program via a live webinar series for HTCs: Patient Engagement Through Motivational Interviewing (MI).

Patient Engagement Through Motivational Interviewing Webinar Series
This new training program is designed to build HTC capacity to effectively utilize MI for engaging patients in goal setting and attainment. MI is an evidence-based, individualized approach shown to increase patient engagement. It aims to enhance the quality of the therapeutic relationship, assist patients in identifying and setting goals, improve care, and achieve better outcomes and overall health.

Webinar Participation + Schedule
Patient Engagement Through Motivational Interviewing is being offered as a six-module live webinar series. It is open to all interested HTC staff; social workers, physicians, physician assistants, nurses, and nurse practitioners who complete the program will receive seven hours of CME/CE credits.

Quality Improvement (QI) Training Update
The NHPCC has successfully provided QI training for 87% of the HTCs in the USHTCN. These efforts have helped expand the capacity of HTCs to incorporate continuous QI into their clinical practices through local, regional, and national QI programs. HRSA’s three priority areas being addressed through these efforts include transition of care, patient and family engagement, and medical home access.

The initial focus of NHPCC QI efforts was the transition from pediatric to adult care, and has now moved on to supporting HTCs to meet their goals of addressing patient and family engagement such as the Patient Engagement Through Motivational Interviewing training program webinar series.

Read the Western New York BloodCare Case Study to learn more about how they are engaging patients and families to improve transition of care as a result of the NHPCC QI initiative.
