Measuring Advanced Practice Provider Productivity
September 12, 2018
1:00 p.m. Central Time


Advanced practice providers (APPs) are recognized as key members of the interdisciplinary team in the intensive care unit (ICU). Programs that develop productivity metrics can use them for employee evaluation and service performance measures and to show value to organizational leadership for appropriate resource allocation. In this webcast, experts will discuss institutional measurements of APP productivity in the ICU.

Learning Objectives:
  • Explore methods for measuring APP productivity in the ICU
  • Describe value metrics for comparing APP productivity within a group
  • Learn how productivity metrics can be used to support hospital administration resource requests

Advanced Practice Provider Service Line Development
September 26, 2018
1:00 p.m. Central Time

As the use of advanced practice providers (APPs) in critical care continues to rise, healthcare providers are often thrust into management roles. Most healthcare providers' training is clinically focused and rarely covers how to successfully pursue and develop a complementary APP service. In this webinar, experts will discuss strategies for onboarding and developing new APP groups with a focus on professional growth and maximizing knowledge, skills, and communication and will explore the potential for growing the APP group beyond the borders of the intensive care unit (ICU).

Learning Objectives
  • Learn about critical care APP service line management structure (e.g., department, division, and medical staff versus nursing)
  • Discuss the business case for creating an APP service within the hospital
  • Explore the integration of APPs into critical care subteams both inside and outside the ICU (e.g., sepsis, renal replacement therapy)
