Talking About Professionalism Through the Lens of Professional Identity.

AEM Educ Train 2019 Jan 4;3(1):105-112. Epub 2018 Dec 4.

Department of Emergency Medicine The University of Arizona Tucson AZ.

Professionalism is one of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education's (ACGME) Core Competencies, but the breadth of its content often makes this a difficult topic, both in remedial counseling and when presenting the topic to medical trainees and practicing clinicians. Physician professionalism encompasses both clinical competence and the virtues that comprise the physician's social contract. This difficult subject may best be approached tangentially, through the lens of professional identity. Read More

Is It Learning or Scutwork? Medical Students Adding Value in the Emergency Department.

AEM Educ Train 2019 Jan 27;3(1):101-104. Epub 2018 Nov 27.

Department of Emergency Medicine Michigan Medicine Ann Arbor MI.

In busy emergency departments (EDs), it can be difficult for faculty to teach students amid pressure to provide patient care and conduct research. As a result, medical student teaching may be an afterthought rather than a priority, and there is a lack of focus on how students spend their time during clinical shifts in the ED. Students want to contribute to departmental workflow, but can be hampered by systems limitations and lack of clinical knowledge. Read More

Implicit Bias Education and Emergency Medicine Training: Step One? Awareness.

AEM Educ Train 2019 Jan 24;3(1):81-85. Epub 2018 Sep 24.

Department of Emergency Medicine Sidney Kimmel Medical College, of Thomas Jefferson University Philadelphia PA.

Objective: Prior research suggests that health care providers are susceptible to implicit biases, specifically prowhite biases, and that these may contribute to health care disparities by influencing physician behavior. Despite these findings, implicit bias training is not currently embedded into emergency medicine (EM) residency training and few studies exist that evaluate the effectiveness of implicit bias training on awareness during residency conference. We sought to conduct a mixed-methods program evaluation of a formalized educational intervention targeted on the topic of implicit bias. Read More

Factors Important to Top Clinical Performance in Emergency Medicine Residency: Results of an Ideation Survey and Delphi Panel.

AEM Educ Train 2018 Oct 16;2(4):269-276. Epub 2018 Aug 16.

Department of Human and Organizational learning Graduate School of Education and Human Development George Washington University Washington DC.

Objectives: We explore attributes, traits, background, skills, and behavioral factors important to top clinical performance in emergency medicine (EM) residency.

Methods: We used a two-step process-an ideation survey with the Council of Emergency Medicine Residency Directors and a modified Delphi technique-to identify: 1) factors important to top performance, 2) preresidency factors that predict it, and 3) the best ways to measure it. In the Delphi, six expert educators in emergency care assessed the presence of the factors from the ideation survey results in their top clinical performers. Read More

Early Complications Following Facial Laceration Repair Performed by Emergency Physicians After One Year of Wound Closure Training.

AEM Educ Train 2018 Oct 16;2(4):259-268. Epub 2018 Aug 16.

Department of Emergency and Critical Care Medicine Keio University School of Medicine Tokyo Japan.

Objective: Facial lacerations, which are common in the emergency department, have usually been repaired by non-facial trauma specialists, such as emergency physicians. Given the ongoing discussion regarding quality assurance or the optimal training model on facial laceration repair for nonspecialists, we sought to determine the impact of a 1-year wound closure training provided to emergency physicians. We hypothesized a decrease in early complications following facial wound closure after the training. Read More

AEM Educ Train 2018 Oct 17;2(4):254-258. Epub 2018 Sep 17.

Children's National Medical Center Washington DC.

Clinical care of pediatric sepsis depends on early recognition and basic initial steps and thus focused educational materials for providers in these early phases of care are needed. The authors sought to identify educational goals and establish a framework for those materials. The authors conducted a Delphi process to create consensus educational goals for the recognition and treatment of pediatric sepsis, focused on the needs of emergency and acute care providers.

Clinical Cadavers as a Simulation Resource for Procedural Learning.

AEM Educ Train 2018 Jul 6;2(3):239-247. Epub 2018 Jun 6.

Department of Medical Neurosciences Halifax Nova Scotia Canada.

"See one, do one, teach one" remains an unofficial, unsanctioned framework for procedural skill learning in medicine. Appropriately, medical educators have sought alternative simulation venues for students to safely learn their craft. With the end goal of ensuring competence, educational programming will require the use of valid simulation with appropriate fidelity. Read More

Emergency Medicine Resident Shift Work Preferences: A Comparison of Resident Scheduling Preferences and Recommended Schedule Design for Shift Workers.

AEM Educ Train 2018 Jul 25;2(3):229-235. Epub 2018 Jun 25.

Hennepin County Medical Center Minneapolis MN.

Background: Shift work can negatively impact an individual's health, wellness, and quality of work. Optimal schedule design can mitigate some of these effects. The American College of Emergency Physicians has published schedule design guidelines to increase wellness and longevity in the field, but these guidelines are difficult to apply to emergency medicine (EM) residents given their high shift burdens and other scheduling constraints.

Point-of-care Resource Use in the Emergency Department: A Developmental Model.

AEM Educ Train 2018 Jul 30;2(3):221-228. Epub 2018 May 30.

Division of Emergency Medicine Department of Medicine McMaster University McMaster program for Education Research, Innovation, and Theory (MERIT) Hamilton Ontario Canada.

Background: Technologic advances, free open-access medical education (FOAM or #FOAMed), and social media have increased access to clinician-oriented medical education resources and interactions at the point of care (POC); yet, how, when, and why medical providers use these resources remains unclear. To facilitate the development and design of intuitive POC resources, it is imperative that we expand our understanding of physician knowledge-seeking behavior at the POC.

Methods: Individual semistructured interviews were conducted and analyzed using a qualitative, grounded theory approach. Read More

Impact of Early Educational Intervention on Coding for First-year Emergency Medicine Residents.

AEM Educ Train 2018 Jul 25;2(3):213-220. Epub 2018 May 25.

Department of Emergency Medicine Beaumont Health System Royal Oak MI.

Objectives: Coding of a medical visit is based on provider documentation in the medical record; the documentation should reflect the level of care that was provided. To maximize coding and subsequent billing, providers must complete various components of the record to best convey the complexity of the case. Little education is provided to resident physicians regarding appropriate documentation practices, and studies suggest a need for improved education in this area. Read More

Editorial Processes in Free Open Access Medical Educational (FOAM) Resources.

AEM Educ Train 2018 Jul 1;2(3):204-212. Epub 2018 May 1.

Division of Emergency Medicine Department of Medicine McMaster University Hamilton Ontario Canada.

Background: Much of the skepticism toward online educational resources (OERs) in emergency medicine (EM) stems from the low barrier to publishing and a perceived lack of editorial rigor. Learners and educators have demonstrated unreliable gestalt ratings of OERs, suggesting a lack of capacity to consistently appraise these resources. The development of tools to guide clinicians and learners in the selection and use of blogs and podcasts is a growing area of interest.
