Resident Curriculum Pocket Card

Toolkit for Implementing the Chronic Care Model in an Academic Environment

To reinforce the chronic care curriculum, residents receive a Resident Curriculum Pocket Card. The curriculum is longitudinal, allowing advancement by acquiring skills in the use of the Chronic Care Model through novice, competent and expert levels. Third-year residents (experts) assist in training first-year learners (novices).
