Change Package and Tools

Introduction

All practice improvements require changes to be implemented.  The RIFS change package is intended to help physicians and team members implement practice changes that improve care for patients living with financial strain. The change package tools were designed to work best in conjunction with quality improvement training to maximize the impact. 

The potentially better practices listed are derived from a review of the literature, clinical practice guidelines, and from expert recommendations. They are anticipated to improve the care of patients living with financial strain. However, the list of practices is not exhaustive and should be customized, tested, and evaluated in your own clinical setting before you will know whether they are truly "better".

The RIFS change package was developed by the Alberta Medical Association (AMA) Accelerating Change Transformation Team (ACTT). Input was sought from patients who have lived experience with financial strain and providers with experience treating patients who are experiencing financial strain.
