Virtual Lipid Preceptorship | Lipids Online
GETTING STARTED IN THE VIRTUAL LIPID PRECEPTORSHIP UPDATED: 03 OCTOBER 2007 Getting Started: Setting Goals 1. Why are you participating in this CME activity? A B C D E F G I’m tired of doing “hit and miss” medical management. I want to implement evidence-based outcomes in my practice. The idea of developing a subspecialty in my practice is appealing. None of the at-risk patients in my local area are being cared for appropriately and I’d like to do it. I want to improve my revenue stream. I want to have my entire staff involved in getting X% of my patients ≥60 yrs of age and at-risk for CVD to national guidelines within Y years Other: NOTES: 2. Write your goal. • Make it specific, measurable, actionable, realistic, and time sensitive. • Describe the specific characteristics of the patients you want to target. • Define a percentage of patients who you want to get to national guidelines. Note: Make it small and achievable! • Identify a realistic time frame. • Describe the role of your staff in this goal.
