The Smarxt Media Literacy Program: Improving Evidence-Based Prescribing Among Medical Students, Bethany D. Corbin, Jason B. Colditz, Galen E. Switzer, Jaime E. Sidani, Patricia M. Klatt, Ted Schaffer, Brian A. Primack

Journal of Media Literacy Education

Many prescriptions written are not evidence-based, resulting in unnecessary morbidity and mortality. Media literacy may help medical trainees optimize evidence-based decision-making. In this study, we aimed to assess feasibility, acceptability, and initial efficacy of a media literacy prescribing program. We recruited 30 medical students, who completed animated video modules about pharmaceutical marketing and prescribing. We used a process evaluation and open-ended items to assess feasibility and acceptability, and knowledge tests before and after the intervention to assess efficacy. The program was feasible to implement and well-accepted. Knowledge and attitude targets around evidence-based prescribing and drug marketing improved after the intervention.

Let’S Talk About Sex History: Impact Of A Communication Curriculum On Medical Student Performance And Perceived Competency, Colleen K. Stockdale, John Kippes, Marcy Rosenbaum, Marygrace Elson 2018 Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine, Iowa City, IA

Let’S Talk About Sex History: Impact Of A Communication Curriculum On Medical Student Performance And Perceived Competency, Colleen K. Stockdale, John Kippes, Marcy Rosenbaum, Marygrace Elson

Proceedings in Obstetrics and Gynecology

Introduction: Communication in general, but especially regarding difficult topics such as sexual health is inadequately addressed in undergraduate medical education. Students often feel they are poorly trained in this area due to a lack of opportunities to practice taking sexual history. Thus, a communication curriculum was implemented to address this gap, including formal small group practice sessions on taking a sexual history during the Obstetrics and Gynecology (OB/GYN) clerkship.

Aim: Determine whether medical students who completed a sexual history communication curriculum performed better during a formal standardized patient based assessment (PBA) at the conclusion of the OB/GYN clerkship ...

Obstetrics In Uganda: A Reflection, Eleanor Germano

Proceedings in Obstetrics and Gynecology

After having been immersed in rural maternal care in Uganda and completing my Ob/Gyn clerkship at the University of Iowa, I appreciate even more how limited the resources, technology, and preventive measures truly are and how incredibly fortunate we are to practice medicine in the United States. We have hospitals with sterile equipment, post-partum hemorrhage and mass transfusion protocols, access to emergency transport services, and so much more to maximize good outcomes. This experience gave me so much insight and encouraged me to pursue my interests in global women’s health but also to appreciate the training I’m ...

THE DEVELOPMENT AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A RELIABLE METHOD FOR EDUCATING PROVIDERS ON STROKE DISCHARGE ORDER SETS

After receiving a comprehensive stroke certification from the Joint Commission, an academic tertiary care medical center created and revised 15 stroke order sets to ensure providers could easily place the correct orders for every stroke patient. Following certification, it was noted that there was inconsistent use of these order sets. This raised concerns that the process to treat a stroke patient may be delayed, creating serious potential risk for the patient.

A goal of this performance improvement plan was to develop and implement a ...

IMPROVING REVENUE CAPTURE AND PATIENT SAEFTY IN AN INTENSIVE CARE SETTING

Materials management department is responsible for restocking chargeable supplies in an intensive care unit (ICU) at an academic tertiary medical center. Staff confusion as to what items were considered chargeable often led to low supply par levels resulting in delays of critical patient care.

Using baseline metrics, a team of caregivers created several performance improvement goals to increase nursing compliance with appropriate supply charging. The results of a root cause analysis spearheaded the development of a KPI that encompassed staff education, lost charge tracking and charge supply labeling.

STRATEGIES TO IMPROVE RESOURCE AVAILABILITY FOR NEW GRADUATE NURSES

Due to changes in the employment arena, health care organizations are hiring new graduate RNs into acute care. At an academic tertiary medical center, new hires typically are assigned into a night shift, which traditionally has less resource availability.

The results of a recent AHRQ hospital survey on patient culture safety demonstrated that new graduates were feeling unsupported and that patient safety could be potentially compromised. A team of caregivers developed several goals to provide increased support, encouragement and education to night shift new hires. Improvement in overall patient care and ...

Continuous Epidural Analgesia For Postoperative Pain Management: A Policy Analysis, Madison Nowell 2018 The University of Southern Mississippi

Continuous Epidural Analgesia For Postoperative Pain Management: A Policy Analysis, Madison Nowell

Doctoral Projects

Postoperative pain management is a necessary component of the care of every surgical patient. Epidural analgesia is a widely used method to provide excellent postoperative pain relief and enhance postoperative recovery (Sawhney, 2012). Epidural analgesia is associated with fewer side effects than alternative pain management techniques; however, when epidural catheters are managed improperly, or pain is inadequately assessed, epidural analgesia fails to provide adequate pain relief (Deni et al., 2016). More than 80% of surgical patients experience moderate to severe postoperative pain, and 28 to 50% of these patients have a pain score greater than 6 out of 10 at ...
