Advancing Patient-Center Outcomes in Addiction Psychiatry Practice

The overall aim of this project was to utilize the Maintenance of Certification (MOC) process to motivate addiction psychiatrists to learn skills taught by traditional and/or social media routes that will enable them to employ patient centered outcomes research (PCOR) in the care of their patients. The project specifically focused on the MOC Part 4 process (MOC4) of Performance in Practice (PIP), and peer and patient review. The study included three stages: (1) development and tailoring of patient-centered processes and materials needed to support MOC; (2) delivery of skills and content education regarding PCOR informed care, the MOC4, performance improvement principles, and social media, as well as measurement of outcomes of projects/care through a AAAP Annual Meeting Learning Collaborative, follow-up webinars and social media; and (3) dissemination of educational process to full AAAP membership and preparation for sustained support by AAAP of PCOR informed care via the MOC/social media mechanisms.
