Slide 5: Overall SHARE Approach train-the-trainer goals

Slide 5: Overall SHARE Approach train-the-trainer goals. Train and engage your fellow health care colleagues in shared decision making and patient-centered, evidence-based care. Engage your organization's administration and key leaders to introduce shared decision making.(Use the Brief for Administrators (Tool 9) when speaking to them.) Create an awareness of AHRQ's evidence-based resources for patient-centered care.(Interactive decision aids; Consumer and clinician summaries.)

  • Be able to go back to your organization and use the tools to train and truly engage your fellow health care colleagues in shared decision making and patient-centered, evidence-based care.
  • Be able to engage your organization's administration and key leaders to introduce shared decision making. Remember, sharing the Brief for Administrators (Tool 9) can be very helpful when speaking to them.
  • Create an awareness of AHRQ's evidence-based resources (interactive decision aids and the consumer and clinician summaries) for patient-centered care.

Slide 6: Training preparation tips

Slide 6: Training preparation tips. Seasoned and novice trainers alike, allow about 2 hours per module the first time you prep to train. Read and practice. (Aloud a few weeks prior to the training date; Again a few days before the training; Doing all four in one day? Start prepping the month before training.)

Training Guide Script:

Say: The first time you train, you will likely need to allow about two hours per module to read and practice the content you will be presenting. I practice a few weeks prior to the training date and then pull the materials out again a few days before the training to just skim the module(s). If you are going to conduct all four modules in one day, start prepping a month before your training date.

Some trainers find it helpful to read the materials aloud as they prepare. Seasoned and novice trainers alike discover that after the first training, they will need less and less review and practice time.

Return to Contents


Slide 7: Training preparation tips

Slide 7: Training preparation tips. You'll find many prompts on the slides that contain much of the dialogue in the right column of your manual or in your slide notes. It's OK to read from the notes at first, but try to glance up often. Soon it will become second nature. You don't have to be a subject-matter expert in shared decision making, PCOR, or health literacy. Your commitment to incorporating shared decision making at your organization will show through as you train.

Training Guide Script:

Say: The good news is that we've included many prompts on the slides that contain much of the dialogue found in the right column of your manual or in your slide notes. At first you may find yourself reading from the slide notes for some sections. Remember to glance up often. Soon, it will become second nature.

Also remember, you don't have to be a subject-matter expert in shared decision making or patient-centered outcomes research to offer these modules. Your commitment to incorporating shared decision making at your organization will show through as you train!

Slide 8: Two formats: 2-column or slide notes

Slide 8: Two formats: 2-column or slide notes. (Images of 2-column and slide note formats for the training guide script.)

Training Guide Script:

Do:Show both formats of the Trainer's Guide.

Say: There are two formats of the Trainer's Guide to choose from. Decide which format you prefer: Working directly from your workbook in front of you in the two-column format, or printing the slides off with one slide per page with the slide notes underneath.

The method you choose is a matter of personal preference.

Return to Contents


Slide 9: Printing slide notes

Slide 9: Printing slide notes. (Images of the process used to print slide notes so they are three to a page, with space for taking notes.)

Training Guide Script:

Say: If you opt for the larger slide format, just print your materials this way from the PowerPoint slides, three-hole punch them, and place them in a notebook.

To print individual slides with notes:

  1. Go to your print function in PowerPoint.
  2. Click print full page.
  3. Click the drop down arrow on right side.
  4. Click on note pages.
  5. Click print.

Slide 10: Refer to the first two "overview" pages of your Trainer's Guide

Slide 10: Refer to the first two 'overview' pages of your Trainer's Guide. Module goal/aim. Learning objectives. Timing. Learning methodology – small group, role play. Materials checklist – helpful to check off items. Instructor preparation – (i.e., email consumer and clinical summaries for Module 1; sign the certificates of attendance.) (Image of SHARE Approach Trainer's Guide workbook.)

Training Guide Script:

Do: Show participants each section as you discuss them below.

Say: The first two pages of the Trainer's Guide for each module follow the same format and give you an overview of the module. Here, you will find the module goal and aim followed by learning objectives. The next area, timing, suggests how much time should be allotted to present that module.

The learning methodology section offers information about the learning activities included in the module, such as small group discussion, role playing, or showing a short video.

The next section is the materials checklist. I always find it helpful to review this section so I know what I need to bring to training. It can be helpful to check off the items you'll need as you gather your equipment.

The last section, instructor preparation, details the steps you'll want to take for a successful presentation. For example, I would want to make sure I had signed the certificates of attendance so that they were ready to hand out at the end of training.

Slide 11: Order sample AHRQ materials to show and share

Slide 11: Order sample AHRQ materials to show and share. Order about one month prior to your training so you'll be sure you have samples to share. Order online at www.effectivehealthcare.ahrq.gov. Or, call the AHRQ Publications Clearinghouse at 1-800-358-9295. Materials are free and available in bulk. Refer to code E-8 when ordering. (Image of AHRQ Web site where individuals can go to order print copies of AHRQ materials.)

Training Guide Script:

Say: Order AHRQ resources, such as the consumer and clinician summaries, to share and show at your training. You can order online or on the phone. I've ordered quite a few times, and have found that the materials are sent out promptly. Still, order these free materials about a month or so before your training date to ensure you have them in time. Use order code E-8 when ordering.

Slide 13: Assemble the Guide for each of your trainees

Slide 13: Assemble the Guide for each of your trainees. Download the materials from your thumb drive. Print three slides to a page for participants to take notes. Use a three-ring hole punch and place in a three-ring binder (two-pocket folders may work). Try 'grayscale' print function when color is not an option.

Training Guide Script:

Say: You will assemble Participant Guide workbooks from the downloadable materials found on your thumb drive [or CD-ROM].

Print three slides to a page so your trainees can take notes.

A three-ring binder holds the materials well, but two-pocket folders may work, too. Each participant in your training will receive a Participant Guide. Printing in the "grayscale" mode can yield very clear printouts if color printing is not feasible.

Slide 16: Sample training agenda

Slide 16: Sample training agenda. Four shared decision-making training sessions planned at the end of the clinic day: July 9, 5-6:00 pm Brief Introduction and Module 1; July 16, 5-6:30 pm Module 2; July 23, 5-6:30 pm Module 3; July 30, 5-6:30 pm Module 4.

Training Guide Script:

Say: We mentioned earlier that the training agenda is flexible. You can offer all four modules in one day, or you can offer a training series, conducting one module at a time.

As an example, a one-module training agenda could be arranged at the end of the clinic day for four consecutive Wednesdays.

  • Four shared decision-making training sessions planned at the end of the clinic day:
    • July 9, 5-6:00 pm Brief Introduction and Module 1.
    • July 16, 5-6:30 pm Module 2.
    • July 23, 5-6:30 pm Module 3.
    • July 30, 5-6:30 pm Module 4.

Slide 17: When to offer the training

Slide 17: When to offer the training. Extended lunch-and-learns. All in one day – during the week or weekend? Other ideas? Note: Leadership buy-in is important.

Training Guide Script:

Say: Another example would be to extend the lunch hour by 30 minutes and use one of the lunch hours every week for 3-4 weeks.

Your administrator will probably have to approve the timeframes for training.

In addition, you may want to consider offering full-day training on a staff training day or a weekend day. We offered our pilot train-the-trainer on a Saturday, and that worked well.

Offering the 6 hour workshop on a weekend may be a good choice for offices that allow employees to work a flexible work week or those that allow employees to accrue compensatory time (comp time). Again, this illustrates why seeking administrative buy-in can be critical.

Slide 18: Communicate with trainees before the workshop to ensure optimal participation

Slide 18: Communicate with trainees before the workshop to ensure optimal participation. Ask participants to sign up via email:(In subsequent emails, you can then request other contact information.) Stay connected with trainees:(Send reminders two weeks before the workshop; ask people to update status; Send reminder three days before the first workshop and a day before subsequent ones.)

Training Guide Script:

Say: We suggest communicating with your trainees before the workshop to ensure optimal participation. A good way to stay in touch with your trainees is through email. Ask prospective attendees to register via email. This way you will have their addresses at your fingertips.

Return to Contents


Slide 19: Email and in-person contact as reminders

Slide 19: Email and in-person contact as reminders. Email the consumer and clinician summaries for Module 1 about two weeks before your training:(just like we emailed them to you.) If your organization is small, or limited to one department, consider in-person contact. (Image of sample AHRQ consumer and clinical summaries.)

Training Guide Script:

Say: Consider sending out reminder emails several times before your training date. If you are conducting the training module by module, you should send reminders out one week before each session and again the day before the session. Ask registered participants to reply by email if they need to cancel and will not be attending.

Also, remember that we emailed you the AHRQ consumer and clinician summaries for the role-playing activity in Module 1 before the workshop. You should send those summaries out about two weeks before your workshop.

These email connections are effective ways to stay connected with your trainees. They also serve as reminders about the workshop dates.

If you work in a smaller size organization, consider going in person to remind people about the workshop.

Group Exercise

Slide 20: Fill out your training plan

Slide 20: Fill out your training plan. (Image of the training plan worksheet.)

Training Guide Script:

Say: Let's do a group exercise using the Workshop Training Plan handout. Since this is a draft plan, it may change when you begin the actual planning at your health care organization. Take a couple of minutes to write down your answers in the "My Plan" section of the handout.

Do: Hand out the Training Plan Worksheets or ask participants to pull them out of their booklets. Give participants several minutes to write their answers.

Say: Who will you invite? Are you planning to do training for all staff, just your clinic colleagues, or for providers in your community?

Maybe you will start small to work out how to implement shared decision making in your own clinic, and then branch out to other parts of your health care organization.

Ask: Would someone like to share who they will be inviting to their training?

Do: Have 2-3 participants share information about who they will invite.

Say: Let's look at the structure of your trainings next. Will you offer a one-day training of all four modules? Would it be easier to do four separate trainings of 60-90 minutes each?

Ask: What do you think would work in your organization?
