The Wisconsin DOC Quarterly Meetings is an ongoing series of meetings that occurs four times a year. In this meeting practitioners (MD/DO/APNP/PA) will be able to discuss Evidence Based Medical practices and how they relate to care in the Wisconsin Department of Corrections. Key features will include one to three medical lectures, update on pharmacy and therapeutics, update on EMR implementation and optimization to streamline and standardize care and an administrative update on where the bureau of health services stands in many areas today. Additional discussions on quality improvement, efficiencies, and patient centered care initiatives will be undertaken. Modes of learning will be verbal, video demonstrations, didactic lectures, and case presentations.
