Increasing Patient Knowledge Of Obstructive Sleep Apnea And Sleep Studies, Billy Tran 2017 University of Vermont

Increasing Patient Knowledge Of Obstructive Sleep Apnea And Sleep Studies, Billy Tran

Family Medicine Clerkship Student Projects

Sleep Apnea is a common and shockingly under-diagnosed disorder. OSA has various health consequences, including increased risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke. Many patients don't ask about OSA due to lack of awareness and an intimidation about the process of care for OSA. This project helps to increasing understanding of the sleep study and make OSA a more approachable disorder

Defining Quality In Medical Practice, Nicholas E. Boggs

Clinical Research in Practice: The Journal of Team Hippocrates

We need physicians who are willing to participate in creating the standard of care, and to hold insurance companies accountable for real evidence-based quality markers. Only then will patients receive adequate care and we as educators in medicine be able to adequately teach the next generation of physicians.

ABSTRACT

Background and Objectives: Generational differences are often viewed as shaping the overall attitudes and actions of different age cohorts. It is essential to understand the motivations and generational differences in primary care physicians for efforts to recruit, retain, and educate the future physician workforce. Determining what factors most influence different generations of primary care physicians when choosing a practice site is essential to build our future primary care system. This study examined generational differences in the factors that attracted primary care physicians to their current practice.

Methods: A survey instrument was mailed to all active members of the North ...

Keeping Rural Medical Students Connected to their Roots: A “Home for the Holidays” Immersion Experience

Abstract

Introduction

Preclinical medical students with an initial affinity for rural practice often experience urban disruption during training. Longer summer rural immersion experiences have been shown to be somewhat effective in keeping rural students connected to their rural roots. Some students cannot adapt their schedules to these longer experiences. In response, a brief practice experience near home during the winter break of the academic year was established.

Methods

Nineteen detailed rural practice assessments were completed by preclinical medical students during school years 2009-2014 and essays ...

Clinician Numeracy: The Development Of An Assessment Measure For Doctors, Anne A. Taylor, Lucie M. Byrne-Davis 2016 Keele University, Staffordshire, England

Clinician Numeracy: The Development Of An Assessment Measure For Doctors, Anne A. Taylor, Lucie M. Byrne-Davis

Numeracy

Low numeracy in doctors poses serious risks to patient safety because inaccurate drug dose calculation may lead to under-treatment or overdose, while erroneous data interpretation affects medical decision making. Most research on numeracy in healthcare focuses on health numeracy in patients, while research on numeracy in doctors, “clinician numeracy”, is limited, partly due to the lack of a suitable assessment measure. We developed a new assessment, the Medical Interpretation and Numeracy Test (MINT), to assess clinician numeracy. The MINT tests computational, analytical and statistical constructs, using a combination of questions validated in other studies, and new test material specifically designed ...

Effect Of Two Semesters Of Small Group Problem-Based Learning (Pbl) On Expectations Of Physician Assistant Students Regarding Self, Others, And Facilitator Using The Pbl Readiness Questionnaire, Susan Hawkins, Mark Hertweck, Anthony Goreczny, John Laird 2016 Chatham University

Effect Of Two Semesters Of Small Group Problem-Based Learning (Pbl) On Expectations Of Physician Assistant Students Regarding Self, Others, And Facilitator Using The Pbl Readiness Questionnaire, Susan Hawkins, Mark Hertweck, Anthony Goreczny, John Laird

Internet Journal of Allied Health Sciences and Practice

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to assess changes in expectations and perceptions among physician assistant (PA) program matriculants regarding small group problem-based learning (PBL) from the beginning to the end of the first didactic year. Some of the stress experienced by students entering health science professional programs using PBL may be due to lack of awareness of the goals and norms of PBL which differ from those of traditional lecture-based curricula. A change in student expectations as a result of participation in PBL would indicate that these goals and norms can be learned through participation. Methods: The authors ...


Electronic Health Records In The Academic World, Madeline Leapaldt 2016 University of Akron Main Campus

Electronic Health Records In The Academic World, Madeline Leapaldt

Honors Research Projects

Health or medical records are the backbone of the healthcare industry. They allow professions to practice patient-centered, interdisciplinary care. Electronic Health Records help accelerate the care process and allow for a smoother patient experience. However, many healthcare professionals have not used an Electronic Health Record prior to employment or internships. This can be detrimental to the process and slow down the entire team. Research shows that teaching Electronic Health Records in an academic setting allows students to safely explore the system and become comfortable with using technology for healthcare purposes. There are specific requirements that have been shown to aid ...


Animal Mourning: Précis Of How Animals Grieve (King 2013), Barbara J. King 2016 College of William and Mary

Animal Mourning: Précis Of How Animals Grieve (King 2013), Barbara J. King

Animal Sentience: An Interdisciplinary Journal on Animal Feeling

Abstract: When an animal dies, that individual’s mate, relatives, or friends may express grief. Changes in the survivor’s patterns of social behavior, eating, sleeping, and/or of expression of affect are the key criteria for defining grief. Based on this understanding of grief, it is not only big-brained mammals like elephants, apes, and cetaceans who can be said to mourn, but also a wide variety of other animals, including domestic companions like cats, dogs, and rabbits; horses and farm animals; and some birds. With keen attention placed on seeking where grief is found to occur and where it ...

Increasing Naloxone Distribution In Vt Emergency Departments, Olivia M. Harris

Family Medicine Clerkship Student Projects

Fatalities caused by overdose from opioids are increasing in Vermont. Evidence shows that Naloxone safely and effectively reverses the effects of opioids in overdose. This project aims to determine why physicians in VT Emergency Departments are not consistently distributing Naloxone to all patients with an overdose, and to increase awareness and implementation of this practice.


Accessible Contraceptive Education In Vt, Alyssa Kwok 2016 University of Vermont College of Medicine

Accessible Contraceptive Education In Vt, Alyssa Kwok

Family Medicine Clerkship Student Projects

Trying to understand options for contraception can be challenging given the myriad of complex options. Providers at CHCB requested a tool with a user-friendly format that takes the varying health literacy of their diverse patient population into account. It needed to contain key features such as efficacy, pros, cons, and usability. The goal of the tool is to be a visual aid for providers that will assist them in helping patients make informed decisions about contraception.
