Learn about the MA/LVN role in planned care at one LEAP site. The MA/LVN spends 15-30 minutes with patients to review preventive and chronic illness care needs, before the provider even enters the room.
"Share the Care" Assessment of Team Roles and Tasks
This is an example of a planning tool, to assess who is currently doing what tasks in your practice and then who should be doing each task, based on how we learned that LEAP sites define clear roles and responsibilities. Task distribution will vary from practice to practice, but the tool is in the discussion about roles that this worksheet can stimulate. Your practice may be able to redestribute tasks in a way that better fits your workforce and patient needs.
