“Teaching SDOH During COVID: The development of a virtual community mapping exercise”
Wednesday, April 21st 11:30am-12:30pm (CT)
The Center of Outpatient Education is an interprofessional program (IP) for Physician, Nurse Practitioner, Nursing, Psychology, Pharmacy, and Social Work trainees at the Cleveland VA Medical Center that is implementing and testing innovative approaches for IP education through a team-based model. Within the COE, a novel Social Determinants of Health (SDH) interprofessional curriculum is in development that includes didactic sessions and hands-on learning activities. During this webinar, we will discuss the development of an innovative Community Mapping activity that was originally developed to be conducted in person, however, it was transitioned to a virtual activity for an IP learning cohort.
Applications are now being accepted for the 2022 NCEAS Annual Conference Committee Co-Chair Position. Submit your application by Friday, April 23rd.
“META: An Innovative Course on Mindfully Evolving, Thriving, and Advocating for Beginning First-Year Medical Students”
The fundamental task of medical education is to transform a novice learner into an empathetic, competent and effective physician. In recent years, the idea of professional identify formation (PIF) which is the process of how one comes to “think, act and feel like a physician” has been gaining momentum in the medical education literature. PIF conceptualizes the evolution of a learner from student to physician including the internalization of shared values and norms. In developing a curriculum that thoughtfully creates opportunities to further PIF by integrating the lens of racial disparities in healthcare, social determinants of health (SDOH), and wellness, a variety of methodologies must be employed.
“Understanding Health Disparities Through the Eyes of Community Members: a Structural Competency Education Intervention”
This resource describes an intervention to introduce Psychiatry residents in New Haven, CT to the economically disadvantaged neighborhoods they serve. This intervention is unique in that the authors created a Structural Competency Initiative with an experiential curriculum designed in collaboration with community leaders and individuals with lived experiences with mental illness (peer advocates).
