Provider Skills and Procedures Workshop

January 16, 2020 to January 17, 2020


Join us on the beautiful Madison campus to learn or refresh your understanding of commonly performed procedures in clinical practice.

You will learn from experts in practice and gain confidence preforming procedures in a supported environment. We offer a streamlined process using traditional didactic lectures, case-based discussion, round table discussion, and hands-on practice.

Choose one of two tracks for the first day of the workshop: ambulatory or acute care. Customize your agenda for day two, including procedures that are new to you and/or need a refresher on.


After initial education and training, advance practice providers (APPs) are required to find a provider who has privileges in their specialty to teach them new skills. Often learning is limited by busy clinic schedules, coordinating clinic days, the procedures that patients actually need, and/or having the resources and time to attend a regional or national conference where these skills are taught.

Some providers may lack confidence in performing specific procedures they haven't recently done and need to refresh their knowledge and skills.

Not being able to provide procedures at the time a patient requires intervention limits access and creates barriers to patient care. Providers should have adequate training to offer these procedures when needed. This could lead to delay in care if a patient requires a procedure that an APP cannot perform.

This workshop meets the need for further hands-on training for commonly performed procedures and is easily accessible to providers within UW Health and throughout the state.

Physician assistants will receive a credit letter indicating this activity was approved for AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ and can submit the letter through NCCPA.


This CE activity has been designed to change learner competence and performance and focuses on the American Board of Medical Specialties' areas of patient care and procedural skills, practice based learning and improvement, medical knowledge, the Institute of Medicine areas of patient-centered care and evidence based medicine, and the Interprofessional and Nursing areas of  roles/responsibilities, interprofessional communication, and teams/teamwork.

Target Audience

This workshop is intended for advance practice registered nurses, physician assistants, and physicians in ambulatory and/or acute care settings.

By the end of the summit learners will be able to:

  • Identify indications and contraindications for commonly performed office and bedside procedures
  • Explain current interventions and tools for treatment of specified conditions/diseases/screening
  • Perform common procedures carried out in office and bedside settings
