Physicians in training as quality managers: survival strategy for academic health centers. (1/291)

Being responsible for medical education places academic health centers at a disadvantage in competing for managed care contracts. Although many suggestions have been made for changing medical education to produce physicians who are better prepared for the managed care environment, few studies have shown how physicians in training can actually contribute to the competitiveness of an academic health center. We present three examples of engaging trainees in projects with a population-based perspective that demonstrate how quality improvement for the academic health center can be operationalized and even led by physicians in training. In addition to gaining experience in a managed care skill that is increasingly important for future employment, physicians in training can simultaneously improve the quality of care delivered through the academic health center.  (+info)

Clinical experience during the paediatric undergraduate course. (2/291)

Medical students at the Cambridge Clinical School are provided with a list of 42 core conditions they should encounter and 20 core skills they should perform during their attachment. By self-completion questionnaires we assessed their clinical experience and the amount of teaching they received, relating the results to marks gained in end-of-attachment assessments. 103 (93%) of 110 students in year one and 123 (96%) of 128 in year two completed the questionnaires. Of the 42 core conditions, 13 were seen by under 70% of the students in year one. In year two, exposure rate increased for 26 core conditions by a median of 7% (range 2-40) and decreased in 13 core conditions by a median value 4% (range 5-13) (P = 0.0005, chi 2). Only mandatory core skills were performed by over 90% of students. 5% of students did not perform any newborn examinations and under 60% observed neonatal resuscitation or a high-risk delivery. Students' core condition score was associated with their core skill score (r = 0.5), hospital grade (r = 0.3) and exposure to acute paediatrics (r = 0.3) (P < 0.005). There was no significant association between clinical experience and the objective examination score or the amount of teaching received. There was an inverse association between the number of students at a hospital and the number of core conditions with an exposure rate above 70% at that hospital (r = 0.7, P < 0.05). This study suggests that clinical experience may be better judged by the clinical supervisor than by assessment of theoretical knowledge.  (+info)

Requirements for occupational medicine training in Europe: a Delphi study. (3/291)

OBJECTIVES: To identify the common core competencies required for occupational physicians in Europe. METHOD: A modified Delphi survey was conducted among members of the European Association of Schools of Occupational Medicine (EASOM), the Occupational Medicine Section of the Union of European Medical Specialities (UEMS), and of the European Network of Societies of Occupational Physicians (ENSOP). An initial questionnaire based on the training syllabus of the United Kingdom Faculty of Occupational Medicine was circulated and respondents were asked to rate the importance of each item. The results were discussed at a conference on the subject of competencies. A further questionnaire was developed and circulated which asked respondents to rank items within each section. RESULTS: There was a 74% response in the first round and an 80% response in the second. Respondents' ratings from most important to least important were; occupational hazards to health, research methods, health promotion, occupational health law and ethics, communications, assessment of disability, environmental medicine, and management. In the second round, among those topics ranked most highly were; hazards to health and the illnesses which they cause, control of risks, and diagnoses of work related ill health. Topics such as principles of occupational safety and selection of personal protection equipment were of least importance. Although the assessment of fitness was regarded as important, monitoring and advising on sickness absence were not highly rated. Management competency was regarded as of low importance. CONCLUSION: This survey identified that respondents had traditional disease focused views of the competencies required of occupational physicians and that competencies were lagging behind the evolving definition of occupational health.  (+info)

Integrating Healthy Communities concepts into health professions training. (4/291)

To meet the demands of the evolving health care system, health professionals need skills that will allow them to anticipate and respond to the broader social determinants of health. To ensure that these skills are learned during their professional education and training, health professions institutions must look beyond the medical model of caring for communities. Models in Seattle and Roanoke demonstrate the curricular changes necessary to ensure that students in the health professions are adequately prepared to contribute to building Healthy Communities in the 21st century. In addition to these models, a number of resources are available to help promote the needed institutional changes.  (+info)

Training initiatives for essential obstetric care in developing countries: a 'state of the art' review. (5/291)

Increased international awareness of the need to provide accessible essential or emergency obstetric and newborn care in developing countries has resulted in the recognition of new training needs and in a number of new initiatives to meet those needs. This paper reviews experience in this area so far. The first section deals with some of the different educational approaches and teaching methods that have now been employed, ranging from the traditional untheorized 'chalk and talk', to competency-based training, to theories of adult learning, problem solving and transferable skills. The second section describes a range of different types of indicators and data sources (learner assessments, user and community assessments, trainer assessments and institutional data) that have been used in the assessment of the effectiveness of such training. The final section of the paper draws together some of the lessons. It considers evaluation design issues such as the inclusion of medium and long term evaluation, the importance of methods that allow for the detection of iatrogenic effects of training, and the roles of community randomized trials and 'before, during and after' studies. Issues identified for the future include comparative work, how to keep training affordable, and where training ought to lie on the continuum between straightforward technical skills acquisition and the more complex learning processes required for demanding professional work.  (+info)

Effects of an applied supplemental course on student performance in elementary physiology. (6/291)

The objective of this study was to determine whether students within a large (100-160 students) didactic lecture-based course, "Elementary Physiology" (EP), who were given an active-learning opportunity would perform better on objective examinations over EP material compared with their classroom peers who did not have the same active-learning experience. This was achieved by offering the EP students the option of taking a supplemental one credit hour discussion-based course, "Case Studies in Physiology" (CSP). Approximately 14% of the EP students opted for the CSP course. The format of CSP consisted of a one-hour-per-week discussion of applied problems based on the factual information presented in EP. On a subjective scale of 1 to 4, the CSP students felt that the course helped them to understand the EP material (3.5). This was reflected in the EP examination results for which the CSP students scored significantly higher compared with their non-CSP peers (81.1% vs. 75.7%; P < 0.05). These results indicate that when active-learning methods, such as discussion of applied problems, are used as a supplement to didactic lectures in physiology, performance on objective examinations of lecture material is improved.  (+info)

The Structured Clinical Operative Test (SCOT) in dental competency assessment. (7/291)

INTRODUCTION: This paper describes a method of assessment of invasive clinical procedures which are currently being devised, and which are perceived to be a method that may be used to complement OSCEs in overall clinical skills assessment. OBJECTIVE: The objective of the Structured Clinical Operative Tests (SCOT) is to introduce a greater level of objectivity to the assessment of operative clinical skills. Invasive or irreversible clinical operative procedures from a large part of dental undergraduate training and are by their very nature precluded from OSCE scenarios. It is also important to test intraoperative skills, communication skills and contingency management, and performance of these with awareness of the psychosocial context and ethical framework. The paper describes the use of checklists in the monitoring of clinical operative skills in a more authentic clinical situation using the SCOT. FORMATIVE ASSESSMENT: Continuous assessment should a) record achievement of competency in as objective a manner as possible and b) should encourage continuous self-evaluation. In the SCOT the students reflect on their clinical performance and in consultation with their supervisors record their plans to improve their competence in that skill or procedure in the future. This is done immediately on completion of a clinical task while the experience is still fresh in the mind. This encourages deep reflective learning as opposed to superficial factual learning which is characteristic of the more traditional curriculum, and is described as supervisor validated self-assessment. DISCUSSION: The discussion outlines how SCOTs can be practically implemented and integrated into the undergraduate curriculum and an example of a SCOT is appended to the paper. The scope for using SCOTs in postgraduate assessment such as in VT/GPT is also described.  (+info)

DESIGN OF STUDY: Cluster randomised controlled trial. SETTING: Specially trained health visitors in nine 'intervention' clinics--each matched with a 'control' clinic' in an outer London borough. METHOD: Health visitors in intervention clinics invited mothers attending for the six-to-eight-week developmental check to complete a screening scale for relationship problems, and offered help (supportive listening, advice, or referral) if needed. When visiting the clinic for the 12-week immunizations, mothers from all clinics were asked to complete a follow-up self-report questionnaire. After the completion of the trial, 25 women who had attended the intervention clinics and had been offered support with a relationship problem were interviewed to elicit their views on the acceptability and value of the intervention. All 25 of the health visitors engaged in the intervention were asked to complete a questionnaire on their experience. RESULTS: Screening led to striking differences between intervention and control clinics in the percentage of women identified at the six-to-eight-week check as potentially in need of help with a relationship problem (21% versus 5%, P = 0.007) and in the percentage actually offered help (18% versus 3%, P = 0.014). About one-half of the mothers so identified were also identified as having postnatal depression. At the 12-week visit for immunizations, the intervention group was twice as likely (P = 0.006) as the control group to report having discussed relationship problems with the health visitor and 75% more likely (P = 0.046) to report having received help with a problem. CONCLUSION: The intervention offers a useful way of extending the primary health care team's ability to respond to problems that often have serious consequences for family well-being.  (+info)

On this auspicious occasion of our CBME launch, I have invited Dr. Damon Dagnone to write a guest blog. I would like to thank Damon for his extraordinary efforts as Queens CBME Lead.. At the start of every summer, we welcome around 130 post-graduate medical students to Queens University to begin their residency programs. Orientation day, which kicks off this important chapter in their careers, is particularly exciting and a bit nerve-racking for the group. But this year, it might just be the PGME faculty and staff who are feeling that way. For them, July 1st represents a new beginning at Queens, and an opportunity to lead the rest of the country in transforming medical education.. As Canada celebrates its 150th anniversary, Queens will officially launch competency-based medical education (CBME) across all 29 of its specialty programs. To be fair, we are following the lead set by Family Medicine in successfully implementing their "Triple C" competency-based curriculum more than five years ...

BACKGROUND: The Division of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Toronto implemented a pilot residency training program that used a competency-based framework in July of 2009. The competency-based curriculum (CBC) deployed an innovative, modularized approach that dramatically intensified both the structured learning elements and the assessment processes. METHODS: This paper discusses the initial curriculum design of the CBC pilot program; the refinement of the curriculum using curriculum mapping that allowed for efficiencies in educational delivery; details of evaluating resident competence; feedback from external reviews by accrediting bodies; and trainee and program outcomes for the first eight years of the programs implementation ...
Competency-based education (CBE) has attracted renewed attention in recent years as a means to ensure that graduating medical students are prepared with the skills required for current medical practice and to meet contemporary healthcare needs. This learner-centered educational paradigm emphasizes outcomes and abilities rather than time in a training program. CBE was established in the Duesseldorf Medicine model course of study of the Medical Faculty of the Heinrich-Heine-University in 2013. The curriculum includes a newly developed longitudinal program of education in Human Genetics. The program integrates knowledge and practical skills in a case based approach. The back bone of the program is the case based online learning modul CASUS . Individual cases with genetic problems are presented in a clinical setting encompassing the patients history, family history and clinical investigations. The system interactively stimulates the students to reflect the decision process to establish a ...

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to empirically validate a set of conceptually derived recovery-promoting competencies from the perspectives of mental health consumers, consumer-providers and providers. METHODS: A national sample of 603 consumers, 153 consumer-providers and 239 providers completed an anonymous survey via the Internet. The survey evaluated respondents perceptions about a set of 37 competencies hypothesized to enhance clients hope and empowerment and inquired about interactions with providers that enhanced clients recovery process. We used descriptive statistics and ranking to establish the relevance of each competency and generalized linear models and post-hoc tests to examine differences in the consumers, consumer-providers and providers assessments of these competencies. RESULTS: Analyses confirmed the recovery relevance of several competencies and their relative importance within each group of study participants. They also revealed that while most competencies tended to

Suppose we were to apply a similar thinking to how we train bioentrepreneurs? In an article published in the Journal of Commercial Biotechnology in January 2008, my co-author Patrick Hurley and I reported an overview of bioentrepreneurship education programs in the U.S. and proposed some core learning objectives for those completing bioentrepreneurship education programs. Not unlike the ACGME guidelines, we tried to identify learning objectives related to some general competencies, suggested ways to use increasingly more-dependable methods of assessing a graduates attainment of these competencies throughout the program and recommended we begin to use outcomes data to facilitate continuous program improvement ...

Rationale: The majority of stroke patients are discharged home dependent on informal caregivers, usually family members, to provide assistance with activities of daily living, including bathing, dressing, and toileting. Many caregivers feel unprepared for this role, and this may have a detrimental effect on both the patient and caregiver. Aims: To evaluate whether a structured, competency-based training programme for caregivers improves physical and psychological outcomes for patients and their caregivers after disabling stroke, and to determine if such a training programme is cost-effective. Design: A cluster randomized controlled trial. The trial aims to recruit 25 patient and caregiver dyads from each of the 36 participating stroke rehabilitation units. Stroke units have been randomized to either the intervention or control group with randomization stratified by geographical region and quality of care. The intervention is the London Stroke Carer Training Course developed and evaluated in a ...
Objective. The objective of this project was to develop core competencies in pain assessment and management for prelicensure health professional education. Such core pain competencies common to all prelicensure health professionals have not been previously reported. Methods. An interprofessional executive committee led a consensus-building process to develop the core competencies. An in-depth literature review was conducted followed by engagement of an interprofessional Competency Advisory Committee to critique competencies through an iterative process. A 2-day summit was held so that consensus could be reached. Results. The consensus-derived competencies were categorized within four domains: multidimensional nature of pain, pain assessment and measurement, management of pain, and context of pain management. These domains address the fundamental concepts and complexity of pain; how pain is observed and assessed; collaborative approaches to treatment options; and application of competencies across the

The Part 3 is necessarily a snapshot assessment of the candidates scope and depth of knowledge, skills and understanding needed to join the DVSA register of Approved Driving Instructors. It is important to separate subject knowledge from the rest: the subject is just the means of carrying out the assessment. The instructional techniques and core competencies are standard on every pre-set test combination and must be demonstrated regardless of the subject. It is not about teaching the subject; it is all about teaching the skills; and, similarly, the Part 3 is not about assessing the subject; it is all about assessing how the candidate employs the skills they have learned; and how flexible and adaptable the candidate is at modifying those skills to suit the individual needs of the trainee driver, the Examiner is choosing to portray ...

ISSN 1868-7865. 6(2), s 385- 401 . doi: 10.1007/s13132-014-0214-7 Vis sammendrag Abstract. The paper addresses the question of how firms develop innovation-related competencies, by looking at innovative firms and their partnerships with universities. We argue that university partnerships are a strategy taken by innovative firms to develop technological competencies and innovation capacity, rather than an approach to source externally developed knowledge. Based on resource dependence theory, we argue that firms of different sizes and investment in R&D have different competence needs, this likely influences the extent to which they collaborate with universities. To investigate this, we carried out a mixed methods study of firms that collaborate with universities to develop innovation competencies by participating in Industry-PhD projects. The analyses show ...

A key component of the ISHLTs educational curriculum is the development of documents that serve to provide a foundation for the later development of educational courses. The Core Competency Curriculum Document (CCCD) is one of these. The CCCD is a foundational document that defines a priori the learning objectives and established contents in the field. This key document outlines the fundamental principles that the specific specialist should know, though not necessarily everything they should know. It also serves as the documentation for the written practice gap that must be the starting point for the development of all ISHLT Academy Core Competency Courses. These CCCD are also excellent resources for self-directed learning ...
Chair: prof.dr.ir. G.P.J. Verbong. Event Calender. Summary. Information Governance in Service-Oriented Business Networking. Competition in current business environments forces organizations to focus on their core competencies and outsource other activities. Organizations focusing on their core competencies collaborate with globally distributed business parties to provide products and services for customers. This highlights the importance of business networking for achieving competitive advantages. In this way, nowadays competition is between business networks (BNs) rather than between single organizations.. On the other hand, customers empowerment in globalized markets necessitates service orientation in BNs. Service orientation in BNs points out deep interactions with customers for value co-creation as well as dynamic and agile collaboration with suppliers to deliver mass-customized products and services. In this way, a service-oriented business network (SBN) is described as a collaborative ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Linear programing models for portfolio optimization using a benchmark. AU - Park, Seyoung. AU - Song, Hyunson. AU - Lee, Sungchul. PY - 2019/3/24. Y1 - 2019/3/24. N2 - We consider the problem of constructing a perturbed portfolio by utilizing a benchmark portfolio. We propose two computationally efficient portfolio optimization models, the mean-absolute deviation risk and the Dantzig-type, which can be solved using linear programing. These portfolio models push the existing benchmark toward the efficient frontier through sparse and stable asset selection. We implement these models on two benchmarks, a market index and the equally-weighted portfolio. We carry out an extensive out-of-sample analysis with 11 empirical datasets and simulated data. The proposed portfolios outperform the benchmark portfolio in various performance measures, including the mean return and Sharpe ratio.. AB - We consider the problem of constructing a perturbed portfolio by utilizing a benchmark portfolio. ...

Downloadable (with restrictions)! The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has often asserted that its programs encourage aid by signaling policy credibility, commonly referred to as aid catalysis. Our study investigates this claim for sector-specific aid and for bilateral and multilateral donors using data on 136 recipient countries for the 1986-2009 period. We employ a two-part quantitative model to match the donor decision-making process, consisting of a first-stage recipient selection equation and a second-stage allocation equation on selected recipients. We find strong support that IMF programs catalyze aid on aggregate, but the evidence varies across different types of aid. Aid catalysis is stronger and more robust in sectors linked to the IMFs core competency areas, namely debt-related relief and general budget support, but weaker and less robust for infrastructure, production, multisector, and humanitarian aid, and non-existent for health and education. Across donors, IMF programs are associated

Provisions in the House and Senate versions of the surface transportation authorization bill would grant extra monies to any state that requires convicted drunken drivers to equip their cars with breathalyzers that prevent their sauced-up rides from starting.. Earlier this month, Virginia became the 16th state to enact such a law.. The ABI says the law should apply only to "hard-core offenders" because they are the most likely to cause alcohol-related accidents.. But with the Senate passing its own version last week and the House needing to take up legislation before the current authorization expires, the beverage institute might be running out of, ahem, vehicles for its cause.. When asked to provide examples of Congressional allies who might fight the provisions, Sarah Longwell, managing director of ABI, came up empty.. "Were talking to a lot of people in the House," she said. "Lobbying is not a core competency of ours.". Also driving the ABI to drink is a provision in the Senate bill that ...
This is our bread and butter. At Cieden, we take pride in helping our clients check the pulse of their customers, competitors and other stakeholders. Inevitably critical insights are revealed, sometimes saving huge amounts of time, energy and money in the process. Through experience, we understand that dealing with engagement analytics and customer interviews is a time-consuming process, and we also recognize that there is an art to doing so. Proper questioning of an interviewee is essential to uncovering the most valuable qualitative insights, just like proper analytics instrumentation is essential to creating the most insightful reports. There is no need to worry about those details, however. We take care of this so you can instead focus on your core competencies, like driving your business forward.. As can be seen from the examples above, this is an aspect of development that must not be neglected. The value of the insights you can gain, often from some unlikely sources, should never be ...
We examine the role of stakeholders as an influence in the practice of portfolio restructuring. We contend that with the presence and creation of new legal arrangements and regulations, portfolio restructuring achieved widespread usage, but only when the initiatives were consistent with the interests of the most powerful social actors in a firm. Building on a stakeholder power approach to corporate governance, we examine whether the interests of relational banks, managers, and business groups were consistent with the practices of portfolio restructuring we observed in Japanese firms in the 1998 to 2005 period. Regressions using data on 174 Japanese machinery firms lend support to predictions that portfolio restructuring increases in frequency with the extent to which business groups strategies are facilitated and decreases with the degree to which banks interests are protected. The association between the frequency of portfolio restructuring and managerial interests depends on the level of ...
