Abstract: 

"Systems based practice" (SBP) and "Practice based learning and improvement" (PBLI) are workshops in the CHAMP mini-course "Teaching on Today's Wards" (TTW) which aims to strengthen inpatient teaching skills, particularly across the ACGME core competencies, general internists, hospitalists and family practitioners and fellows who teach residents and medical students. Topics in TTW include: Improving the Teaching Process, Systems Based Practice, Practice Based Learning and Improvement, and Lifelong Learning.

SBP and PBLI provide unique learning experiences in small group workshops. Teaching materials are infused with geriatric content and include: slide presentations with speaker's notes, small group exercises, card games, handouts, references, sample session evaluation forms, and user's guide. Consultation with authors/presenters prior to use is recommended.

Educational objectives: 

In two sequential interactive sessions using small group exercises and card games, learners will become able to:

  1. define systems based practice
  2. demonstrate how to evaluate a learner's ability to work within an existing system, and how decisions and actions affect the entire system of care;
  3. identify conceptual elements of quality improvement projects with residents;
  4. define practice based learning and improvement;
  5. demonstrate "Plan Do Study Act;"
  6. demonstrate teaching and evalauting practice based learning and improvement; and
  7. demonstrate case and census audits. Geriatric content is infused throughout.
Additional information/Special implementation requirements or guidelines: 

The CHAMP Faculty Development Program has trained 12 geriatricians, 26 general internists, 2 hospitalists, and 7 fellows at the University of Chicago

"Systems based practice" and "Practice based learning and improvement" are approved for 2 (Category 1) CME credit hours each.
