Product Information
Abstract: 

"Pain Control" module is part of the CHAMP faculty development program, which aims to improve inpatient, geriatric medical care through a "teach the teacher" approach. It is central to one of CHAMP's themes, improving palliative and end of life care. Teaching materials include: a slide presentation with speaker's notes; bedside teaching triggers on assessing and treating pain and opiate conversions; a pocket teaching card; references; a sample session evaluation form; and the "CHAMP Overview and User's Guide." The weblink enables users to access to all CHAMP course materials.

CHAMP is a multi-tiered educational project with a faculty development program at its core. Hospitalists, general internists, and family practitioners who teach residents and medical students are the targeted audience. The course is organized around four themes in geriatric inpatient care: identifying and assessing vulnerable elders, preventing hazards of hospitalization, improving palliative and end of life care, and managing transitions of care. CHAMP addresses 15 geriatric topics and includes a mini-course entitled, "Teaching on Today's Wards," on advanced clinical teaching skills and teaching across the ACGME Core Competencies in the inpatient setting.

1 hour of Category 1 CME credit was awarded to physicians who participated in this session.

Educational objectives: 

The CHAMP "Pain Control" module teaches learners:

  1. How to use pain intensity scales at bedside with older adult patients;
  2. Recognize pain in persons with dementia;
  3. Use the WHO 3-step ladder for pain management;
  4. Use the opiate conversion table; and
  5. Manage side effects from opiates.

They include: a geriatrics knowledge test; an attitudes on aging survey; Commitment to Change contract and follow up survey; and surveys on self-confidence, importance and frequency teaching and practicing geriatric clinical skills and teaching across the ACGME core competences during inpatient teaching rounds. A user's guide is provided.

CHAMP (Curriculum for the Hospitalized Aging Medical Patient) is a multi-tiered educational project with a faculty development program at its core. Hospitalists, general internists, and family practitioners who teach residents and medical students are the targeted audience. The evaluation instruments provided are designed to measure change in clinical skills and behaviors teaching and practicing geriatrics and the ACGME Core Competencies in the inpatient setting.

Educational objectives: 

The CHAMP Evaluation Instruments for Faculty Learners measure:

  1. self-confidence, importance and frequency teaching geriatrics in the inpatient setting;
  2. self-confidence, importance and frequency teaching across the ACGME Core Competencies in the inpatient setting; and
  3. frequency with which the team performs geriatric clinical skills in the inpatient setting


Commitment to Change Contracts engage faculty learners in goal setting, and Follow-Up Surveys track inpatient teaching experiences and provide opportunity for reflective learning.

Additional information/Special implementation requirements or guidelines: 

CHAMP Evaluation Instruments have been administered to: 26 general internists, 2 hospitalists, 12 geriatricians, and 4 fellows at the University of Chicago.

CHAMP evaluation instruments for residents and medical students are also available via the weblink provided.

For an overview and user's guide for CHAMP, and a table of contents of the CHAMP modules and evaluation instruments, please refer to the CHAMP OVERVIEW and USER'S GUIDE. Teaching materials specific to each geriatric content area, and to sessions of "Teaching on Today's Wards" (on clinical teaching skills and the ACGME Core Competencies) can be found as stand-alone products, and will be forthcoming.

Objective Structured Video Exams (OSVEs)-- Case #1: Mr. Andrews

Date Posted:

Date Reviewed/Updated for Clinical Accuracy: 
12/31/1969
Product Information
Abstract: 

Each tool was explicitly designed to address at least 2 ACGME competencies beyond medical knowledge and patient care and includes an instructor's guide, a Q & A sheet, a scoring key, and a video trigger. For example, one trigger presents a phone conversation between a patient's son and the physician regarding the mental status of his father, who has a history of memory loss and depression. Residents are asked questions about: (1) diagnostic strategies for dementia (medical knowledge); (2) factors influencing interpretation of test results (PBL&I); and (3) communication between physician and family (communication and professionalism). This individual OSVE for Mr. Andrews can be downloaded above (click Mr Andrews CD Image). Once you have downloaded the CD image, follow the instructions below. The Virtual Patient Cases can also be purchased individually or as a series. For more information, please visit our website at http://www.mcw.edu/display/docid596/GeriatricsCurr...

Educational objectives: 

 Increased knowledge and application of skills based on the ACGME competencies. Learners should be able to identify the ACGME six core competencies as applied to their daily clinical experiences.

Additional information/Special implementation requirements or guidelines: 

The OSVE toolkits have gone through multiple pilots: residents, medical students, and faculty (residency programs both regional, local, and national audiences) and have been used in Grand Rounds, lectures, and small group discussion. The ability to transfer/insert the CD-ROM based resources assumes basic knowledge of computers/software. Instructions are provided regarding how to insert video, images, or other resources into PowerPoint in the Instructor's Guide. Other faculty prefer a 10- minute hands-on session demonstrating the access and insertion process as a method to enhance their ability to incorporate the indexed materials into their instructional materials. In addition, faculty must be reminded that if they are using the video clips, they must verify that an audio connection or external speakers are needed. INSTRUCTIONS Using a .iso Disk Image file you downloaded from POGOe: A file with the extension '.iso', of which many are available for download with various POGOe products, is a replica of a CD saved on the hard drive. These are often called CD Images or Disk Images. This is a common way to distribute software over the internet that normally comes on a CD. Unfortunately on Windows operating systems, including Windows XP and Windows Vista, you cannot simply click a Disk Image file and open it like a CD. Follow these instructions to access the contents of the .iso file. Mac OsX -------------- Just Click the file and it opens like it was a CD. Windows ------------- 1) Burn the image to a CD using burning software. (To do, insert instructions for how to do that with windows explorer.) Then eject and reinsert the CD. or 2) Install software that treat .iso files as if they were a CD and let you access them from your hard drive. Search on the internet for these tools. Such as this Microsoft Product(http://download.microsoft.com/download/7/b/6/7b6ab...) , or other ones that we have used are Iso Recorder (free) and Power Iso. As of 3-12-2009 you could find a list of Vista compatible free tools with reviews here (http://www.petri.co.il/mount_iso_files_in_windows_...). All Operating Systems ------------------------------ Once you can access the contents in the .iso file, if the program does not start automatically, check the notes in the product page or in the files within the Disk Image for instructions on how to launch the program.
