On September 16, 2020, the Graduate Medical Education office virtually held its 8th annual retreat for program leaders, “The Role of the Physician Educator in Developing Stewardship Competencies.”
Richard Frankel, PhD, from Indiana University School of Medicine, began the retreat examining the topic of professionalism (prioritizing patients over self and creating trust in the health care team) as a key component to high-value care. Clifford D. Packer, MD, FACP, from Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center, demonstrated the importance of incorporating Value in SOAPV documentation. Eileen M. Moser, MD, MHPE, MACP, from Penn State College of Medicine, led the participants in case examples to discuss how they would utilize Shared Decision-Making (SDM) with patients. She emphasized that shared decision-making increases the value in health care.
From Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Grace Huang, MD, started our afternoon workshop reporting on the state of the literature on high-value care teaching and described strategies on how to take high-value care teaching from idea to fruition as a publication. The retreat concluded with an interactive workshop led by Drs. Moser and Huang, where participants worked in groups to develop a -shared decision-making tool. This exercise provided an excellent framework for the participants to return to their departments and develop their own.
If you could not attend the retreat, please reference the materials archived in our Faculty Development section of the GME Digital Workplace. (Need to be connected to UH Network to link)
Remember we have a UH Snippet to help you teach your faculty about how to develop shared decision-making tools. Creating a tool is a great program improvement plan that your faculty and trainees can do together. As a reminder, use this in your Annual Program Evaluation (APE). You can report the success and any major changes in the Accreditation Data System (ADS) and publish your tool and the educational innovations you used to design and implement it!
