Promoting Lgbtq+ Inclusivity In Sex Education, Alexis Dela Cruz Jan 2019

Promoting Lgbtq+ Inclusivity In Sex Education, Alexis Dela Cruz

Family Medicine Clerkship Student Projects

LGBTQ youths report less satisfaction with their sex education curriculum than their heterosexual counterparts. The discrepancy between heterosexual sex education and that of LGBTQ is alarming. Currently, as it is reported within the Unites States, students feel as though LGBTQ sex education and resources are not readily available. A brief handout of LGBTQ inclusive practices was created for educators to reference when creating future lesson plans. The aim of this presentation was to create a more open and inclusive dialogue surrounding LGBTQ+ health.


Treatment & Management Of Acute Sinusitis In The Primary Care Setting, Vanessa Trieu Jan 2018

Treatment & Management Of Acute Sinusitis In The Primary Care Setting, Vanessa Trieu

Family Medicine Clerkship Student Projects

Sinusitis is a leading cause of primary care visits. The majority of cases are due to a viral infection, which can be self-treated with supportive care. Many patients are unaware of this and seek medical attention prematurely, incurring significant healthcare costs and resulting in antibiotic misuse. On the other hand, a prolonged infection or the presence of atypical symptoms does warrant medical attention and can potentially lead to untoward consequences if inadequately treated. The purpose of this project is to provide patient education on the expected course of an acute sinus infection and how to proceed with management.

Discovering What Motivates Student Participation In Service Learning: A Model For Healthcare Educators, Erica Kiernan, Ryan Gaylor

St. Augustine, Fall 2016

Service learning experiences can build skills such as leadership, teamwork, communication, cultural competence, marketing, financial management, conflict resolution, and ethical reasoning. Service learning is a beneficial pedagogy.

Therefore, the research question being addressed in this study is how student perceptions and motivation factor into international service learning trips and their impact on physical therapy and occupational therapy students’ current education and future clinical practice?

Effective Interventions To Reduce The Increase In Elective Cesarean Sections In Low Risk Women, Kimberly Kelsey, Crystal Hunter, Brianna-Kirsten Tan, Sara Shea, Heather Holland, Sasha Riley, Mary Uy, Tenzin Tsomo, Fasha Ruys-Solorzano, Dolma Tso

Student Research Posters

According to the Annals of Family Medicine, the amount of babies born via cesarean section has increased from 4.5% in 1965 to 26.1% in 2002 and nearly 40% of all cesarean sections are repeats. After an extensive literature review, results showed that patients need to be educated about the risks and benefits of vaginal delivery and cesarean delivery. It was also found that there needs to be policy changes to decrease the amount of cesarean sections done and increase the labor and delivery support without using interventions. Further study should be focused on morbidity and mortality very low ...

Accessing Reliable Health Information On The Internet, Nathaniel Sugiyama ,Ms3 Jan 2016

Accessing Reliable Health Information On The Internet, Nathaniel Sugiyama ,Ms3

Family Medicine Clerkship Student Projects

In a low socioeconomic farming town at a rural family medicine clinic in upstate NY, I wanted to find a way to help reduce barriers to healthcare and help patients take an active role in their health using free internet resources. My idea was to help connect patients with reliable health information without needing to travel to the clinic, understanding that some patients may be limited in their ability to travel, take time off from work or afford the copays/expenses associated with seeing their providers. As such, I chose to investigate access to the internet, the ways in which ...


Application Of The Many Facet Rasch Model To Validate A Survey For The Selection Of Chief Residents, Kadriye O. Lewis, Haiqin Chen Jan 2016

Application Of The Many Facet Rasch Model To Validate A Survey For The Selection Of Chief Residents, Kadriye O. Lewis, Haiqin Chen

Posters

The literature does not show any established guidelines, methods, or psychometric instruments for selecting Chief Residents in academic programs. This study validates a newly designed instrument based on the characteristics and leadership qualities from the residents' perspectives. Our newly developed survey can differentiate Chief Resident candidates' performance as well as identify why a specific candidate is selected or not through MFRM. This tool can be applied to other residency programs.
