UW MERC Scholars Applications Due

CLIME is pleased to announce the opening of applications for the 2019-2020 Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) Medical Education Research Certificate (MERC) Scholars Program at the University of Washington (UW). The program begins in January 2019 and continues through June 2020. Applications are due by November 15th, 2018. 

PURPOSE 
To advance health professions education scholarship and scholarly collaboration at the University of Washington. 

CURRICULUM
Faculty accepted into CLIME’s MERC Scholars Program will participate in longitudinal program activities that include required workshops, meetings with mentors, and additional sessions (as needed) to complete a scholarly project. We have redesigned our MERC Scholars Program to focus on team-based projects, intensive mentorship from national leaders in health professions education research, and dedicated time for project design and implementation.

More information about MERC and its workshop descriptions can be found here: https://www.aamc.org/members/gea/merc/

LOGISTICS
Faculty must be able to commit to attending 7, full-day collaborative sessions over an 18-month period. Food will be provided and attendance must be in-person at the UW Health Sciences Library in Seattle. All sessions will be hands-on and require active participation:

  1. Introductory session: Formulate group projects and project teams and identify local mentors. 

  2. MERC workshops spread over 5 sessions: Invited experts present a nationally-accredited curriculum in the morning and provide project consultation in the afternoon. Session 5 will have two MERC workshops without consultation time. 

  3. Final Session: Present project abstracts at the  CLIME annual symposium.

PLENARY

  • ABOUT ANTHONY R. ARTINO: Bio

  • ABSTRACT
    Learning to become a health professional is an emotionally charged undertaking. Consider the second-year medical resident who is preparing to conduct a clinical procedure for the first time. She probably hopes for success, worries about failure, and feels ashamed if the procedure goes poorly. These emotions—hope, worry, and shame—have the potential to influence her motivation, the effort she puts forth, and even her professional identity as a doctor. Historically, such emotions have received little attention in health professions education. More recently, however, educators and researchers alike have acknowledged the importance of emotions and their role in learning to become a health professional. The purpose of this plenary is to raise awareness about emotions in health professions education, introduce the self-conscious emotions of shame and guilt, and describe how shame—a potentially destructive emotion—might manifest during training. Using theory, research, and a series of authentic stories from medical education, the session will help both educators and trainees better comprehend the role of emotions in health professions education; recognize the value of shame resilience; develop specific strategies for constructively engaging with shame; and create learning environments that facilitate adaptive responses to shame.

    By the end of the presentation, attendees will be able to…

    1. Discuss emotions and appreciate that emotions can have significant influences on learning, performance, and wellbeing in health professions education;
    2. Recognize shame and guilt and distinguish them from one another;
    3. Describe the relationship between shame, perfectionism, and motivation to learn;
    4. List specific strategies to (a) constructively engage with shame when it occurs and (b) create learning environments that facilitate adaptive responses to shame.

Workshop with Anthony R. Artino, Jr., PhD

Lies, Damned Lies, & Surveys! Developing High-Quality Surveys for Education and Research

Presented by: Anthony R. Artino, Jr., PhD - Professor of Medicine, Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences

Location: T-229, Pacific Room, UW Health Sciences Library, Seattle

RSVP (in-person only): Space is limited! https://climeartinoworkshop.eventbrite.com

Workshop Description:
Surveys are widely used in health professions education (HPE), yet few educators are familiar with the best practices of survey design (Artino et al., 2014). As a result, many HPE surveys fail to adequately capture the very attitudes, opinions, and behaviors they are designed to assess.

This workshop introduces participants to a systematic, seven-step design process for creating high-quality surveys fit for program evaluation and research purposes. The workshop consolidates and organizes the abundance of survey design literature that exists in the social sciences and guides the novice survey developer through the survey design process. This design process is different from previously described processes in that it is inherently collaborative and relies on other experts in the field as well as potential participants. In addition, the process front loads the task of collecting validity evidence by focusing heavily on item development.

Throughout the workshop, emphasis will be placed on conceptualizing relevant HPE constructs, collecting reliability and validity evidence for a survey scale, and identifying common item-writing mistakes. In addition, the benefits of expert validation, cognitive interviewing, and pilot testing will be introduced.

The workshop is intended for any educator or researcher, from novice to more experienced, who is currently developing or thinking about using a survey for program evaluation or research. Given the frequency with which surveys are used in HPE, following a rigorous approach to the design process will greatly improve the chances that survey designers measure what they intend to measure.

Upon completion of the workshop, participants will be able to…

1)      Recognize how to use a systematic, seven-step process as the framework for survey design;

2)      Demonstrate how to develop an appropriate set of items (a survey “scale”) to characterize the educational construct being measured;

3)      Identify common item-writing pitfalls in survey design; and

4)      Define the purpose of expert validation, cognitive interviews, and pilot testing.

Presenter:
Anthony R. Artino, Jr., PhD, is a Professor of Medicine and Deputy Director for Graduate Programs in Health Professions Education (HPE) at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Maryland. He holds a joint appointment in the Department of Preventive Medicine and Biometrics.

However, even highly-structured simulations can yield unanticipated, or emergent, learning due to group dynamics and diverse interpretations of the situation by participants. As educators, we face the challenging task of recognizing these unanticipated, but often high-yield, moments for interprofessional learning. In this presentation, Dr. O’Brien will discuss findings from a qualitative study of student learning through interactions during an interprofessional simulated patient exercise. She will share video clips developed through this research and engage the audience in a discussion of the teachable moments identified in the videos.

Abstract: In qualitative studies, data often take the form of words rather than numbers. While many scholars appreciate the richness of such data, they may feel a bit lost when trying to analyze and report findings from qualitative data. In this workshop, Dr. O’Brien will highlight some of the common problems identified in qualitative manuscripts and offer strategies to avoid these pitfalls.

CLIME Workshop with Monica van de Ridder, PhD

How to give negative feedback in medical education – Conceptual issues & best practices

Presented by: J.M.Monica van de Ridder, PhD, MSc, Michigan State University College of Human Medicine, Grand Rapids (Monica.vandeRidder@hc.msu.edu)

Location: T-229, UW Health Sciences Library
Space is limited!

Summary of theme and why it is important. 

There is growing awareness in medical education that feedback is a central element of effective learning and competency development. However, despite a wealth of experience and practice with feedback, the conceptual basis and empirical evidence on how to give feedback is still sketchy. Giving negative feedback, i.e. specific feedback that points to shortcomings in learners’ knowledge or performance is especially challenging as it might question a person’s self-concept or self-confidence. This in turn might weaken the constructive and conducive potential that feedback might have for personal and professional development.

Against this background, we will discuss different models and frameworks for feedback and focus on guidelines on giving negative feedback in particular, such as: how to establish trust, how to avoid ambiguity, and how avoid the right-wrong discussion.

Who should participate in the Pre-Conference Workshop?

Everybody who is interested in deepening his or her feedback competencies. Participants should have some experience in giving feedback in an educational setting e.g. undergraduate or graduate health professions education.

What will they gain from participating?

Participants will 1) share and reflect their feedback experience, 2) give feedback, observe and reflect on feedback in a controlled setting, 3) Share and discuss best practices especially with regard to giving negative feedback

PLENARY ABSTRACT
The 2015 Institute of Medicine report on “Improving Diagnosis in Healthcare” notes that diagnosis and diagnostic errors have been largely unappreciated in efforts to improve the quality and safety of healthcare. One of the primary roles of health care training programs is to help learners develop medical decision-making skills, and to do so with graduated levels of independence. Effective cognitive integration of basic and clinical science concepts plays an essential role in enhancing diagnostic accuracy for novice clinicians. Furthermore, the ability to transfer knowledge obtained in one clinical context to solve a new problem, or the same problem in another context, is critical to the development of clinical expertise.

Unfortunately, many students who have demonstrate adequate basic science understanding in the preclinical curriculum are often unable to apply this knowledge to clinical problem-solving. Meanwhile, the relevant scientific knowledge of both basic and clinical instructors is often encapsulated, challenging their ability to help students learn and effectively integrate and use core concepts. In this hour, we will explore the reasons behind expert knowledge encapsulation, and consider collaborative methods for “unpacking” instructors’ knowledge and reinforcing its connections to clinical decisions in order to facilitate student activation of their basic science knowledge, improving both diagnostic accuracy and long-term retention, towards the ultimate end of clinical entrustment.

We look forward to seeing you at this exciting event,
