There are multiple internet sites which can be used to increase knowledge and enhance training about group medical visits. We have listed internet sites which committee members have found useful in their work in establishing group medical visits.
The Improving Chronic Illness Care website is a Robert Wood Johnson funded site, and is based on the model developed by Ed Wagner, MD and colleagues. The website decribes the theoretical underpinnings of the model, their work with regional and national collaboratives, clinical tools, research tools, bibliographies for specific chronic diseases, citations and links for providers and patients. www.improvingchroniccare.org/change/index.html
