It’s conference season, and you’ve once again been asked to share your expertise by giving a breakout session at a regional, national or international conference. The thought makes you both smile and shiver. The pressure to deliver a presentation to a group of your professional colleagues that is clear, confident and memorable is undeniable. As you prepare, you start to wonder:
This workshop is focused on developing an understanding of how health professionals communicate, and how workflow and clinical activities often contribute to missed communication opportunities, with implications for patient safety.
“Teachable moments” arise frequently in the clinic setting, but are we using them to effectively educate our learners? Teaching scripts are a tool that can be used efficiently by the busy academic clinician to enhance learning, and have been used in certain departments to integrate basic science teaching in the clinical curriculum. In this workshop, faculty will learn strategies for developing and using teaching scripts in the clinical setting.
Inclusive teaching involves deliberately cultivating a learning environment where all learners are treated equitably, have equal access to learning, and feel valued and supported. In this interactive workshop facilitated by pedagogical consultants from U-M’s Center for Research on Learning and Teaching (CRLT), clinical faculty will examine four principles for creating an inclusive clinical learning environment, one which attends to instructors' and learners' social identities and to the ways systemic inequities shape dynamics in teaching-learning spaces.
Innovation, Creativity, and Adaptability in Medical Education
Whether your clinical work frequently raises potentially sensitive subjects or rarely does, odds are good you will sometimes encounter a “hot moment”: a sudden eruption of tension, conflict, or big emotion during clinical teaching. This is at times connected to a heightened awareness of the social differences in a room or perhaps a result of patient behavior or at times due to the sensitive concerns unfolding with a patient. What are your choices in such a moment? And how can you take advantage of such moments as opportunities to advance trainee learning?
This seminar will introduce you to the many options that are available in the areas of Virtual and Augmented Reality and how they are being used in healthcare training and education. The seminar will cover the basics you need to know to get started, commercial options available and how you can partner with others to design and build a program to meet your needs. If you are a beginner or experienced in the use of these immersive technologies, you will find helpful information you can use.
In 2018, 1 in 8 Americans struggled with food insecurity, including nearly 11 million children. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, more than 54 million Americans, or close to 1 in 6 may face food insecurity in 2020. Food insecurity can negatively affect health regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, or other demographic characteristics.
