Feb. 11, 2013 - PRLog -- Throughout the month of February the Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative (PCPCC; www.pcpcc.net)  will hold virtual public forums to launch the work of its Stakeholder Centers (http://www.pcpcc.net/stakeholder-centers), each led by thought leaders and medical home experts from unique disciplines that are dedicated to building support, knowledge, and public awareness for the patient-centered medical home.

“We are delighted to engage the public in these open forums to drive awareness for the medical home and help us define strategies for encouraging its widespread adoption,” said Marci Nielsen, PhD, MPH, PCPCC’s CEO.

Participation in a center's Quarterly Open Forum Call will allow stakeholders to:

·         - Learn more about the Stakeholder Centers and their role within PCPCC

·         - Hear directly from center co-chairs about goals and objectives for the coming year, such as publications, events, and other special projects

·         - Engage in an interactive dialogue that solicits live feedback from participants through polling and facilitated discussion

·         - Cast their vote about what they’d like to see from the center in the coming year
