12 Case Modules: Healthy Aging in the Southwest

Product Information
Abstract: 

These 12 PBLs reinforce positive attitudes toward aging, knowledge of related issues of health and disease, and skills in geriatric assessment. Students explore each PBL in groups of ten, guided by a team of faculty from basic science, clinical medicine, or an interdisciplinary school (allied health, nursing, pharm). Small group meets twice: first to discuss the case and identify issues for further study, then to report on literature searches. Problem-solving requires synthesis of basic science and clinical medicine.

Educational objectives: 

This case-based modified PBL curriculum is used to immerse medical students in assessment and management of clinical challenges in geriatrics.

The modules aim to:

  1. Identify key issues and focused questions in basic science and clinical geriatrics, pertinent to the case under discussion.
  2. Apply techniques of evidence-based medicine to answer focused questions.
  3. Apply teaching findings to a small group in an organized and effective manner.
  4. Demonstrate knowledge of core issues in geriatrics and related management.
Additional information/Special implementation requirements or guidelines: 

The TTUHSC curriculum has implemented this curriculum in all 4 years of the medical school, which includes approximately 140 students each year. Other schools have accessed this material as well. The learning environment is a medical school class, specifically in a small group PBL format. Train faculty facilitators in PBL methods. Help student identify focused questions that are not too broad. The MSII cases were adapted from the CATCHUM Project: http://www.catchum.utmb.edu

The Healthcare Matrix: Improving Care by Linking Outcomes to Competencies

Date Posted:

Date Reviewed/Updated for Clinical Accuracy:

Product Information
Abstract: 

The Healthcare Matrix is currently a Word document, but will soon have a web-based interface attached to a database. The 36-cell Matrix has one cell to represent each intersection of an IOM Aim for Improvement (identified in the IOM report, crossing the Quality Chasm) with an ACGME Core Competency. This tool provides learners with a structured framework to analyze complex episodes of patient care in terms of the Aims and Competencies. The individual cells of the Matrix allow the care analysis to be segmented into more manageable parts. By associating the Aims for Improvement with the Core Competencies, The Matrix encourages learners to reflect on the care they provide and determine the improvements needed, while helping them learn and apply the Aims and Competencies. If learners cannot identify issues in the bottom line of the Matrix-practice-based learning and improvement--then they have not sufficiently analyzed the care. Learners may then use this information to develop action plans that improve care from an individual -- and systems-perspective so that they experience first-hand the 'Practice-Based Learning & Improvement' Core competency.

Educational objectives: 

1. To offer schools a way to meet Phase III of the ACGME Outcomes Project by presenting an educational tool that links the outcomes of care to the ACGME Core competencies. 2. To encourage learners to associate their education (beyond medical knowledge with the care of their patients.) 3. To guide learners in analyzing the care of their own patients by using the Core competencies to identification of opportunities for improvement. 4. To change the environment of case presentations and M&M conferences from one of blame to one of system analysis and quality improvement.
