HCCI Practical Procedures in Home-Based Primary Care™

Practical ProceduresThis two-day simulation course is designed for clinical providers who seek to develop their skills in performing common procedures required in home-based primary care (HBPC). Many HBPC providers have not been formally trained to perform these procedures, much less in the patient’s home. In addition to providing high-quality care for your most medically complex patients, adding such billable services to your HBPC program can lead to increased revenue for the practice.

Using simulation-based mastery learning, this course teaches five common procedures including Foley catheter insertion and removal, knee joint aspiration and injection, tracheostomy tube exchange, gastrostomy tube removal and replacement, and proper suturing technique. Expert faculty will provide instruction on each procedure, and participants will have hands-on practice with individualized feedback from faculty until they meet the mastery standard.

This hands-on simulation course is designed for Physicians and Advanced Practice Providers (NPs, PAs) interested in learning how to correctly and confidently perform procedures common in home-based primary care.

• Demonstrate foley catheter insertion and removal on male and female models
• Perform knee joint aspiration and injection
• Conduct a tracheostomy tube exchange
• Complete a gastrostomy tube removal and replacement
• Practice proper suturing technique
• Apply optimal coding and documentation practices for performing procedures in the patient’s home

Maximum enrollment is 20 learners
