Predicting Medical Student Success On Licensure Exams, Charles A. Gullo, Michael J. Mccarthy, Joseph I. Shapiro, Bobby L. Miller May 2016

Predicting Medical Student Success On Licensure Exams, Charles A. Gullo, Michael J. Mccarthy, Joseph I. Shapiro, Bobby L. Miller

Michael McCarthy

Many schools seek to predict performance on national exams required for medical school graduation using prematriculation and medical school performance data. The need for targeted intervention strategies for at-risk students has led much of this interest. Assumptions that preadmission data and high stakes in-house medical exams correlate strongly with national standardized exam performance needs to be examined. Looking at prematriculation data for predicting USMLE Step 1 performance, we found that MCAT exam totals and math-science GPA had the best prediction from a set of prematriculation values (adjusted R 2 = 11.7 %) for step 1. The addition of scores from the ...


Does Cultural Awareness Education Have An Impact On Students’ Attitudes?, Janie Smith, Sally Sargeant Feb 2016

Does Cultural Awareness Education Have An Impact On Students’ Attitudes?, Janie Smith, Sally Sargeant

Sally Sargeant

Background:

All over the world people are conducting cultural awareness programs in an effort to educate health professionals about working in a culturally safe way with their patients, in an effort to improve health outcomes. However there is little evidence that any of these programs have a long term impact on the cultural safety of the students practice once graduated. In fact recent research indicates that training programs have been largely ineffective in improving doctors cultural skills, their behaviour or health outcomes. In fact there is anecdotal evidence that some approaches to cross cultural education are having the reverse effect ...

Expanding White Racial Identity Theory: A Qualitative Investigation Of Whites Engaged In Antiracist Action, Krista Malott, Tina Paone, Scott Schaefle, Jennifer Cates, Breyan Haizlip Jan 2016

Expanding White Racial Identity Theory: A Qualitative Investigation Of Whites Engaged In Antiracist Action, Krista Malott, Tina Paone, Scott Schaefle, Jennifer Cates, Breyan Haizlip

Scott Schaefle

This article presents outcomes of a qualitative exploration of White racial identity. Ten participants whose characteristics were reflective of Helms's (1990) autonomy status defined their racial identities and related lifestyle choices. Findings are conceptualized within the framework of Helms's (1990, 1995) theory of White racial identity development. Suggestions are intended to enhance White racial identity theory and provide empirical support for characteristics of Whites who are engaged in antiracist activities.


The Potential Impact Of Higher Course Fees On Career Choice, Richard Hays, Kathleen Lockhart, Edward Teo, Janie Smith, David Waynforth Jan 2016

The Potential Impact Of Higher Course Fees On Career Choice, Richard Hays, Kathleen Lockhart, Edward Teo, Janie Smith, David Waynforth

Janie Smith

Background: Most Australian medical student places are government-supported, reducing the cost of tuition to about $10,000 each year, but some private places with fees cost up to $60,000 per year. In North America, debt at graduation is associated with different career choices. We explored the relationship between potential debt at graduation and future career preference. Summary of Work: Data were accessed from the Medical Schools Outcomes database Exit Questionnaire for both government-supported and full fee paying (FFP) students from 2008-11 in all Australian medical schools. The influence of gender, age, relationship status and fee-paying status on future career ...

Using A Peer Supervision And Mentoring Model In The Supervision Of Final Year Medical Student Placements In The Solomon Islands, Janie Smith, Peter Jones, James Fink

Janie Smith

Background: Makira Island in the Solomon Islands has a population of over 41,000 people, which in 2013 was serviced by one doctor, who worked in the hospital and traveled to remote sites, supported by highly skilled nursing staff. The capital Kira Kira is a very impoverished community with no formal governance structure, poor infrastructure and a large variety of public health issues that lead to fascinating medicine. Summary of Work: In 2013 Bond University’s School of Medicine in Australia commenced 5th year medical student placements at Kira Kira Hospital, with 33 students participating. At times there was little ...

A Dyadic And Longitudinal Investigation Of Adjustment In Couples Coping With Multiple Sclerosis. Research In Developmental Disabilities, Christina Samios, Kenneth Pakenham, Jill O'Brien

Christina Samios

Background Multiple sclerosis (MS) can affect adjustment at both the individual and couple level. Purpose This study examined differences and associations between MS patient and spouse adjustment, and whether one partner’s adjustment predicts the other partner’s adjustment over time. Methods A total of 160 couples at Time 1 and 98 couples at Time 2 completed questionnaires. Results Mixed-model ANOVAs found that patients reported poorer adjustment than their spouse on a range of adjustment indicators and that positive affect and relationship satisfaction declined over time for both patients and spouses. Intraclass correlations found that patient and spouse scores on ...

Simulated Patients’ Perspectives Of And Perceived Role In Medical Students’ Professional Identity Development, Michelle Mclean, Patricia Johnson, Sally Sargeant, Patricia Green Apr 2015

Simulated Patients’ Perspectives Of And Perceived Role In Medical Students’ Professional Identity Development, Michelle Mclean, Patricia Johnson, Sally Sargeant, Patricia Green

Sally Sargeant

Introduction: Much has been written about medical students’ professional identity formation, the process of “becoming” a doctor. During their training, medical students interact with a range of teachers and trainers. Among these are simulated patients (SPs) who role-play patients, assisting students with their communication, procedural, and physical examination skills. With SPs regularly interacting with students, this qualitative study explored their views of students’ emerging professional identities at one Australian medical school. SPs’ contributions to developing professional identities were also explored.

Methods: Fourteen SPs were interviewed individually or in pairs. After template analysis of the transcripts using a priori themes, a ...

Evaluating The Use Of Standardized Patients In Teaching Spiritual Care At The End Of Life, Margaret Fink, Luanne Linnard-Palmer, Barbara Ganley, Olivia Catolico, William Phillips

Margaret Fink

Background Because of migration patterns to the United States over the past 250 years, there has always been cultural and religious diversity. Healthcare providers must have the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to care for patients whose beliefs differ from their own, particularly during critical life events such as birth or death. An end of life care simulation experience for BSN students involving standardized patients (SPs) representing 3 well known religious groups was implemented. Method Fifty-four students participated in this quasi-experimental study comparing a treatment group (n=30) that experienced a simulation activity with a control group (n=24). Results ...

Technological Ubiquity: Educating Educators For The Dynamic Digital Landscape, Carol Sternberger Jul 2014

Technological Ubiquity: Educating Educators For The Dynamic Digital Landscape, Carol Sternberger

Carol S Sternberger

Educators must be responsive to the dynamic, technology rich healthcare environment. It is important for universities to move beyond expecting graduates to have isolated technology skills. Designing curricula that will produce graduates who are comfortable using technology and possess the ability to interpret, analyze and synthesize data requires a different approach to education. The paper focuses on the various technologies integrated in a graduate course designed to prepare nurse educators to work in both academic and clinical environments. Best practices, evidence-based methods and integrated concepts from a requisite informatics course were foundational in the course assignments that focused on the ...
