Health Care Systems and Delivery: A Team-Based Learning Module on the United States Health Care System

Description

This Team-Based Learning module is designed to teach learners in the health professions about health care systems and delivery in the United States. This is the first of three modules, based on "The Health Care Handbook," designed to focus on the basics of our complex health care systems. Learners will define medical errors, describe the challenges of creating a primary care workforce, analyze different hospital systems, and examine different governmental and non-governmental health care delivery systems. Finally, learners will put this information in the context of their own future employment as a physician was well as make decisions on what physicians to employ based on their knowledge, success, and failures within the health care system. The module can be used separately or combined with the modules on "Health Care Insurance and Economics" and "Health Care Policy and Reform."
