Building effective team-based care can improve patient outcomes and practice efficiency and decrease health care costs. But the challenge lies in successfully creating and maintaining MD/RDN partnerships. This session will highlight the transferrable lessons learned from a 1-year quality improvement collaborative – the Childhood Obesity Performance Improvement (COPI) collaborative - about how to build and maintain effective MD/RDN partnerships for caring for persons with overweight or obesity. Hear about the challenges, tools, and innovative solutions used by the RDNs who participated in COPI and the positive results in terms of enhanced referral processes, decreased no show rates, improved communication and enhanced quality of care.
