Data Breakdown: A survey was conducted for 1 month in 2013 that explored resident experiences in emergency psychiatry. Survey questions addressed attitudes toward patient care and mental health policy, burnout, and future career plans. Among respondents, 81% rated finding patient dispositions from the ED as somewhat or very difficult. Patient length of stay in the ED was discouraging for 61% of residents at least once per shift. Only 22% rated the care they provided in the ED as very good or excellent. Three of every five respondents reported feeling burnt out from their work at least every few shifts, and nearly half said they felt more callous toward people every few shifts.. Take Home Pearls: Discouragement with patient length of stay and difficulty finding disposition for patients appear to be significant issues for psychiatry residents working in EDs. A substantial number of these residents appear to believe they are not providing high-quality care and feel burnt from with their ...

We instituted a new call schedule that eliminates call for first-year residents in our program. As a result, first-year residents work in the hospital up to twice weekly until 10 p.m., but they have no overnight, in-house call.. All rotations for first-year residents occur at St. Elizabeth Edgewood. There are 13 four-week block rotations annually. The first block in July is a four-week orientation rotation, where residents spend one week each with a core hospital team, like pediatrics or obstetrics, and one week in the Family Medicine Center. Senior residents run these core teams while orienting first-year residents to each teams responsibilities.. In each of the twelve remaining blocks, first-year residents are assigned to either inpatient medicine, ED and radiology experiences, or obstetrics, pediatrics and general surgery. Weekly schedules may vary in these blocks, but the total yearly experience is the same for all first-year residents.. When a first-year resident is on inpatient medicine, ...

Purpose: Primary care is an ideal setting to deliver efficacious treatments for opioid use disorder (OUD). Primary care providers need to be aware of other concerns patients with OUD might have in order to provide comprehensive care. This study describes the prevalence of mental health, comorbid substance use, and psychosocial concerns of patients seeking treatment for OUD in primary care and their relation to 6-month treatment retention. Methods: Patients (N = 100; M age = 34.9 years (SD = 10.8), 74% white, 46% female) with OUD who were starting treatment with buprenorphine at an academic family medicine residency clinic completed surveys of mental health concerns (depression, anxiety, trauma), psychosocial needs (food insecurity, income, transportation, employment), and demographic variables. Chart reviews were conducted to gather information on comorbid substance use, mental health diagnoses, and 6-month treatment retention. Results: Mental health symptoms were highly prevalent in this sample ...

Beyond the manuscripts submitted for this supplement, what does the medical literature tells us about the state of resident research? In general, recent evaluations of research in family medicine residencies, which have primarily focused on residency faculty, found minimal productivity in most programs2,9; however, many residencies have adopted a scholarly or research requirement for residents. Nearly one-half of residency programs require a resident research project, as this activity is believed to develop critical thinking and patient care skills, as well as to increase the residents understanding of the medical literature.10 Although the faculty may not be producing a great deal of scholarly works, they are encouraging residents to participate in scholarly activity as a learning experience, which is consistent with the overarching goals of the Future of Family Medicine Project.7 We were therefore very pleased to receive 36 manuscripts to be evaluated for potential inclusion in this ...

The issue is politically controversial in the United States, where federal regulations did not limit the number of hours that can be assigned during a graduate medical students medical residency. Starting in 2003, with revisions in 2011,[44] regulations from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education capped the work-week at 80 hours. As of 2018, shifts are capped (with limited exceptions) at a maximum of 24 consecutive hours of direct patient care with an additional 4 hours for transition of care (sign out, completing notes, etc.) for first, second, and third year residents.[23][45][46][47][48] The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) has limited the number of work-hours to 80 hours weekly, overnight call frequency to no more than one in three, 30-hour maximum straight shifts, and at least 10 hours off between shifts. While these limits are voluntary, adherence has been mandated for accreditation. The Institute of Medicine (IOM) built upon the ...

Good morning. I am the first author on this paper. I appreciate the feedback on its content. I wanted to say that the initial manuscript only evaluated compliance with the RRC/ACGME program requirements. However, the peer reviewers wanted more than a cross-sectional study for Surgery. So, the linear regression analyses were added. The law of small numbers is an excellent point. Of note, omitting the smaller residency programs (,15 residents over the study period) did not change the results of the analyses. Finally, there are numerous limitations of the study. We thought of many. However, length restrictions of this Brief Clinical Report precluded a more in-depth discussion. I agree that it is ultimately about the individual resident; there are a number of manuscripts depicting USLME, ABSITE, etc as predictors of board performance. However, the n in this study depends on the number of residency programs. At the program level, there is really not a lot of published data on board performance. ...
We have forwarded your concerns about state-plan states having extended training requirements to Barbara Bryant. As with most compliance directives, the Federal Program Change section of CPL 2-2.51 requires Regional Administrators to ensure state designees submit a plan supplement and either follow OSHAs policy described in the instruction or submit rationale for all substantial differences to allow OSHA to judge whether a different state procedure is as effective as comparable federal guidelines.. We contacted Alaskas state OSHA office and they reported that they have revised their 1910.120 training requirements to be in line with the federal requirements. They no longer require 80 hours of training.. Beach clean-ups crews on shore are typically involved in post emergency response activity. Any activity to contain the oil on the water prior to removing it would be part of the emergency response. Thus, you can have both clean-up and emergency response activity going on at the same time.
