The North American Primary Care Research Group (NAPCRG) invites you to join 
us for the International Conference on Practice Facilitation November 29-30 in Louisville, Kentucky. 



A collaborative of PBRN P30 Centers of Excellence and NAPCRG are very excited to announce that the first
International Conference on Practice Facilitation (ICPF) will be held in conjunction with this year’s STFM
Conference on Practice Improvement in Louisville, KY. The dates of ICPF are November 29 and 30, 2017. This
AHRQ‐supported conference was specially designed for current and future practice facilitators, their mentors
and leaders, and those who implement practice facilitation programs.

The 1.5 daylong conference will feature world–renowned PBRN researchers and practice facilitation pioneers,
including Dr. William Hogg from the University of Ottawa and Dr. Michael Parchman from the MacColl Center
in Seattle. These keynote speakers will help jump‐start many interactive, hands‐on sessions. The conference
program is anchored in four major themes:

  • Creating a Learning Community of Practice Facilitators;
  • Sustaining and Managing Practice Facilitation Programs;
  • Practice Facilitator Training and Development; and
  • Improving the Science and Best Practices of Practice Facilitation.

Space is limited to about 120 participants. We are not calling for abstract submissions for the first
conference. The organizers expect to register no more than 5 participants per organization to ensure that a
diverse set of stakeholders is represented.

For more information on the conference, please contact Dr. Nagykaldi at znagykal@ouhsc.edu.
