Resources for Practicing Professionals

The Meyers Primary Care Institute (MPCI) produces a range of curricula and training materials for practicing professionals. Many of these are a result of research projects that develop and test interventions to benefit patient care.

Below is an overview of some of our resources for practicing professionals.

Warfarin Communication Toolkit for Nurses

This toolkit improves communication related to the management of warfarin in long-term care settings. The toolkit introduces training materials and resources to help adapt communication practices. These materials are based on the principles of effective standardized communication that includes four components: Situation, Background, Assessment, and Recommendation (SBAR).

This work was funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.


Caring for Residents with Dementia: A Guide for Behavior Management and Evidence-Based Medication Use

This toolkit improves the quality of life and care of elders living with dementia. The toolkit is tailored to interdisciplinary clinicians who work in long-term care settings.

This work was a joint collaboration between MPCI and Qualidigm, funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. 

Training practicing professionals is key in translating research findings into practice. This promotes evidence-based care for the benefit of our community, and beyond.
