Why a group medical visit instead of 1:1?
Physician Quote:
Dr. Becky Temple
“Since starting group medical appointments for my
depressed and anxious patients I have felt much more
satisfied with the care I am providing....allowing me to
share CBT exercises, and medication information in a
much more detailed manner to several patients at one
time; patients find it valuable to discover that they are not
alone in their struggles with symptoms and to hear about
how others have successfully managed their illness with
medications and other therapies....much more powerful
than me saying so as a physician"
11
Patient Quote:
Brian
“Group medical visits, I think everyone should attend at
least one and let them be the judge. Most of my doctors
appointments are group medical appointments”.
“Questions that I would have liked to have asked but
didn’t have the courage to, someone else asked and I
learned from that. Questions that I didn’t even think to ask
were asked and I learned even more”.

Group Visit Models
Model 1:
Cooperative Health Care Clinic (CHCC)
Model 2:
Drop-in Group Medical Appointments (DIGMAs)
Model 3:
Physicals Shared Medical Appointments (SMAs)
13
Common Features of All Group Medical Visit
Models:
- These are 1:1 medical appointments that happen in a
group setting (i.e. assessment, diagnosis, prescription
renewal, review of labs)
- Reduce repetition and duplication
- In all cases patients will be asked to sign patient
confidentiality forms
- All physicians and patients will fill out an evaluation form
- Groups medical appointments will begin on time and end
on time
- Patients have 90 minutes with their physician
14
Cooperative Health Care Clinic (CHCC) Model
Key Concepts:
- Pre-book 10-15 high-utilizer patients
- Book the same people in the same group on a
regular basis e.g., monthly/quarterly
- 90 - 120 minutes in duration
- Consist of individual 1:1 with doctor done in a
group
- Review of test result
- Question & answer period
- Topic for education (30 mins.) based on group decision
- Limited private consultation with doctor after the
group
15
Drop In Group Medical Appointment (DIGMA)
Key Concepts:
- 80% pre-booked
- Can be booked from a patient registry for recall
- Can be Homogeneous group (single issue)
- Can be Heterogeneous group (various
conditions)
- 12 – 16 patients see their doctor 1:1 in a group
dynamic
- Education is opportunistic with each patient
interaction
16
Shared Medical Appointments (SMAs)
Key Concepts:
- Pre-booked (80%)
- Shared physicals appointment (ideal for
prenatal, baby-wellness, women’s and men’s
health needs, or cardiovascular follow up
appointments)
- 8-12 (max) patients
- First half of the session is a private physical
exam by doctor, while other group members are
sharing & learning with behaviourist
- Second half is doctor patient interactions in a
group
