Objectives:

Objectives: The need for collaboration between primary care and public health is widely recognized, but these sectors don’t have a lot of experience working together. To address this, the de Beaumont Foundation, Duke Community and Family Medicine, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have developed a new tool – A Practical Playbook: Public Health & Primary Care Together. The Practical Playbook is a free, web-based tool designed to facilitate public health and primary care integration by offering a variety of resources for primary care providers and public health officials. A key aspect of integration is how data can be shared and used to inform joint primary care and public health actions. In this webinar, we will explore the new tool and how it can support the epidemiologic functions of the health department.
By the end of the webinar participants will be able to:
  • Discuss the need for shared data between primary care and public health.
  • Articulate the role of the epidemiologist in driving and supporting integration.
  • Identify the major components of the Playbook and how to use it to collaborate with primary care groups
  • Use the Practical Playbook to identify resources and tools to support your work
  • Identify success stories and tools that would be useful to add to the Playbook to support the work of epidemiologists
