We saw offering Maintenance of Certification points as a great opportunity to give something to our physicians without burdening them with extra work. We were able to offer MOC for a wide variety of topics including pediatric trauma, digestive health, emergency and critical care ultrasounds, and longitudinal progression of complex trauma and addiction.
Plus, offering MOC was relatively easy for us, as an organization, too. Then, following the activity, we reported the learner data in PARS.
In the US, hemorrhage is a leading cause of maternal death, yet many of these deaths are preventable. The need for real-life training is especially great in rural areas, where the maternal death rate is up to 64 percent higher than in urban areas.
The activity utilized assigned prework reading on the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists ACOG clinical guidelines, didactic lecture, hands on simulation with a fully functioning OB mannequin, and a physician roundtable debrief.
The activity reached 34 physicians, 10 advanced-practice providers, and additional OB team members at their own facilities. Following the activity, physicians across the communities reported plans to develop and implement healthcare quality improvement measures.
The simulation was invaluable. Studies have shown that by analyzing complex data sets, clinicians can identify patterns that can improve patient care, yet institutional surveys showed a lack of clinician knowledge regarding access to quality data.
Evaluation results have shown participants are now more likely to use evidence-based data in their clinical decision making, and several QI projects have originated from these sessions. The video highlights five key themes: By doing so, this video reinforces the need for physician leaders to ensure these topics are considered in their daily work.
During our Annual Diversity week, we conducted a series of presentations and panels on topics such as gender identity, gay and lesbian communities, and care of transgender patients.
Diversity Week began in and has steadily increased in attendance each year. No longer confined to just one week in October, additional educational opportunities on diversity issues have been added throughout the year.
We developed several ongoing CME activities that teach competencies in the treatment of patients from diverse cultures, including a regular monthly series on caring for vulnerable populations, a recurring course addressing care in the Asian population, a recurring course on developmental disabilities for clinicians and families, and a biennial Transgender Health Summit.
After participating in these CME activities, clinicians reported increased abilities to deliver care in a culturally-aware manner, with humility, empathy, and sensitivity. We use surveys of our members and our advocacy council to monitor the national healthcare landscape and identify factors outside of our control that impact patient outcomes, such as reimbursement and insurance issues, obstacles with ineffective electronic health records systems, organizational culture and systems-based issues at healthcare institutions, and a general lack of resources.
In one instance, member feedback identified issues with billing and reimbursement for allergen extracts. The Practice Management Committee viewed this as a perfect opportunity for using education as a strategy for improving practice around this issue.
We responded by developing webinars and toolkits to improve understanding among clinicians and their teams. We trained hospitalist and ambulatory faculty mentors to observe and coach the residents through practicing these conversations with their patients.
Mentors were chosen based on their demonstrated commitment to resident education and interest in improving their own communication skills. We trained the mentors in a full-day CME activity, first training them in the Serious Illness Conversation Guide, a structured interview tool to help clinicians have high-quality advance care planning conversations with their patients, using simulated patients, and then training them in mentoring, using simulated learners.
The mentors were taught to provide feedback to their learners powered by VitalTalk bedside coaching methodology. After this training, faculty were likely to change their clinical and teaching practices, frequently use the communication and teaching skills, and regularly encourage other faculty to use these skills.
They greatly value the individualized feedback they received as clinicians and educators. As a result of participating in this activity, internal medicine residents gained significant skills in serious illness conversations, which were maintained through the 6-month duration of the program.
Vergo, MD and Amelia M. We identified a lack of skills in interprofessional teamwork and communication as a contributing factor to medical errors. To address this barrier, we present CME that incorporates strategies for improving communications, such as root cause analysis, cross-referencing written directions, verifying verbal directions in writing, enhancing rapport, and validating written prescriptions that may be misread, incorrect, or inappropriate.
One focus of this activity is to teach participants how to implement a series of steps to mitigate potential errors by sharing facts, inviting dialogue, and developing a mutual plan among HCPs and with patients. This is done by reviewing multiple real case examples then developing strategies to respond to such problems and prevent them in the future.For the past 4 days, I was enrolled in Northcentral University in the Master of Education Program.
