Fam Med 2019 02;51(2):159-165

S.U.N.Y. Upstate Medical University.

In late 2015, the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine (STFM) was charged with Family Medicine for America's Health's (FMAHealth) Workforce Education and Development Core Team's task of identifying, developing, and disseminating resources for community preceptors. The charge from FMAHealth came at a time when STFM was discussing strategies to address the critical shortage of clinical training sites for medical students. STFM hosted a summit to identify the most significant reasons for the shortage of community preceptors and shape the priorities, leadership, and investments needed to ensure the ongoing education of the primary care workforce.

American Academy of Family Physicians, Leawood, KS.

When the Family Medicine for America's Health (FMAHealth) Workforce Education and Development Tactic Team (WEDTT) began its work in December 2014, one of its charges from the FMAHealth Board was to increase family physician production to achieve the diverse primary care workforce the United States needs. The WEDTT created a multilevel interfunctional team to work on this priority initiative that included a focus on student, resident, and early-career physician involvement and leadership development. One major outcome was the adoption of a shared aim, known as 25 x 2030. Read More

PedHITSS: A Screening Tool to Detect Childhood Abuse in Clinical Settings.

Fam Med 2018 11;50(10):763-769

University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Department of Family and Community Medicine.

Background And Objectives: Though child abuse is prevalent and detrimental, health care providers fail to screen for abuse at sufficient rates to detect or preempt events. Current child abuse screening tools lack brevity and usefulness in clinical settings. To validate the Pediatric Hurt-Insult-Threaten-Scream-Sex (PedHITSS) screening tool, a 5-item questionnaire designed to detect and prompt provider investigation into child abuse in clinical settings, the PedHITSS was compared to the Conflict Tactics Scale: Parent-Child Version (CTSPC) screening measure.
