Program Description: 

Join Society for Pediatric Urgent Care (SPUC) for weekly webinars designed to equip providers with knowledge of best practices for common Pediatric Urgent Care conditions. The goal is to foster a community of providers through academically rigorous, web-based lectures. This webinar series creates the infrastructure for Pediatric Urgent Care systems across the country for spreading ideas and learning from one another. In addition, the webinar series gives providers an ongoing opportunity to earn CME in topics specific to Pediatric Urgent Care.


Target audience: 
  • Physicians
  • Physician (fellows/residents)

Learning objectives: 

    Participants who engage in this educational intervention will be able to:

    •  Discuss competence in caring for Urgent Care patients and partnering with their families.
    •  Analyze provider performance on quality measures in our Urgent Care settings.
    • Outline strategies to improve the outcomes of the patients we serve in Urgent Care
    • Journal Club

    The top 5 relevant current (within last 5 years) to pediatric urgent care practice summarized and reviewed.  A brief section on practice change will also be included for each article.  Journals included in this screening include: JAMA, NEJM, PEDS, JAMA PEDS, and ACADEMIC PED, Journal of PEM.

    • Case Conference

    This is a review of 1-3 patient cases taken from the patient caseload. Each patient case will be presented with a thorough review of current relevant literature.  Each patient case will also address the following variables: 1) patient safety 2) system safety 3) system efficiency 4) potential quality improvement intervention.

    • Evidence-based Guidelines

    A guideline on a specific clinical condition will be reviewed. At the meeting each guideline will be evaluated for relevance, validity, and application potential. There will be a strong focus on understanding meaningful practice variation, key performance indicators, measurable outcomes, and change management strategies.

    • Quality Improvement

    The participants will perform quality improvement interventions in the urgent care setting. Participants will review: 1) What are we trying to accomplish? 2) How will we know that change is an improvement? 3) What change can we make that will result in an improvement? 4) Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) cycle results. Quality Improvement projects will be judged successful when changes are measurable, sustainable and transparently communicated.
