Happy New Year and warm greetings from all of us here at Practice Transformation Institute (PTI). We are a non-profit organization that provides medical, nursing, dietetic, social work and other health care professional continuing education through our customized learning programs. We hope that you will consider letting us be a part of your personal and organizational education goals in 2020.
Continuing Medical Education. We are accredited by the Michigan State Medical Society (MSMS) to provide continuing medical education (CME) for physicians. If you’re interested in attaching CME to your learning event, let us help with our CME Joint Providership Program. We will make sure that your CME event is planned, implemented and evaluated in accordance with the MSMS requirements.
IACET. PTI is an International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) accredited provider and adheres to the highest standards of the training profession. We follow the ANSI/IACET Standard for Continuing Education and Training. IACET CEUs are recognized by a wide range of organizations including professional organizations, regulatory boards, corporations and universities.
Care Coordination and Care Management Training (Self-Management). Care Coordination and Care Management Training is one of PTI’s signature ongoing programs. We have trained hundreds of interprofessionals with a knowledge base and skill set to enable high quality chronic disease care for patients in the ambulatory care setting. The program provides contact hours for nurses, continuing professional education units for dietitians, and continuing education hours for socials workers. IACET CEUs are also available.
National Diabetes Prevention Program. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention established the National Diabetes Prevention Program to help prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes. The program is evidence-based with research showing that lifestyle modifications can cut the risk of type 2 diabetes in half. PTI has master trainers and lifestyle coaches who can bring this program to your organization.
Learning Collaboratives. A learning collaborative is a learning and innovation community that links a variety of organizations together to rapidly test and implement meaningful, sustainable change within a specific topic area. PTI has been facilitating learning collaboratives for years and is a proven expert.
PATH (Personal Action on Health) Training and Workshops. PATH is Michigan’s name for the Self-Management Resource Center’s (SMRC) self-management programs that were developed and tested at Stanford University to help people learn techniques and strategies for the day-to-day management of chronic and long-term health conditions. PTI can do PATH leader trainings and workshops at your place or ours.
As you can see, PTI can provide a wide range of educational programs for health care professionals that can be customized to fit your organization’s need. Bring an idea to us and we can bring it to fruition. PTI knows the benefits of working collaboratively on interprofessional teams and how they help improve patient outcomes.
Our programs can be delivered at your facility, a facility of choice or at PTI. We want to help you jumpstart your education goals for 2020. Email Harmony at We hope to see you in 2020! for more information.
