South Carolina Chronic Conditions Care Collaborative (4C Collaborative) helps support health systems across the state of South Carolina to improve patient outcomes. In this course, 4C Collaborative provides evidence-based strategies and resources to assist health care professionals in the management of patients with chronic diseases. Topics covered in the course include: implicit bias, identifying undiagnosed hypertension, medication therapy management, team-based care, and clinical systems and care practices to improve diabetes care.

At the completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Utilize the 4C Collaborative Change Package to improve health outcomes for patients with chronic conditions.
  • Discuss examples of change concepts, change ideas, and evidence-based resources for the improvement of patient care and health outcomes for patients with chronic conditions.
  • Describe the use of quality improvement methodologies (i.e., Plan-Do-Study-Act cycles) to test and implement new processes and/or strategies to improve health outcomes related to chronic conditions.
  • Identify approaches to incorporate non-physician team members in hypertension and cholesterol management in the clinical setting.
  • Explain the role of implicit bias in health care disparities and how to recognize these biases to address disparities at the practice level.
This program is developed in collaboration with the SC Department of Health and Environmental Control's Division of Diabetes & Heart Disease Management with funding from the CDC Cooperative Agreement DP18-1817 Innovative State and Local Public Health Strategies to Prevent and Manage Diabetes, Heart Disease and Stroke.
