Abstract: 

Incoming chief residents from all departments participate in a 90 minutes workshop with the dual objectives of teaching a model for sharing bad news and preparing these physician leaders to give feedback to learners about this important skill.  After reviewing a 6 step model for bad news communication, the chief residents share bad news with standardized patients using two cases of older adults with a new or recurrent cancer diagnosis.  The standardized patients all receive training about the workshop's objectives in a separate session prior to the workshop.  After communicating with the standardized patient, the chief resident receives feedback from the patient, a trained faculty small group facilitator and 1-2 other chief residents.  After both cases are completed, the chief residents gather for a large group discussion about the challenges and opportunities in providing feedback to learners about sensitive topics.  This workshop has been conducted for the past three years, and has received positive evaluations from the participating physicians and the school's Graduate Medical Education Office.

Educational objectives: 
  1. Recognize bad news communication as a core physician skill
  2. Understand the 6 basic steps used to initially deliver bad news
  3. Practice giving feedback to a resident whom delivered bad news

Abstract: 

Advance care planning (ACP) is a critical component of quality end-of-life care, yet there is little formal training in medical school education.  This novel curriculum enables third-year medical students to practice communication skills and build confidence interviewing a patient about advance care planning, personal values and quality of life.  The curriculum consists of: a lecture, readings, demonstration video, and a mock interview with a senior “trained patient.”  Senior, volunteers were recruited from an independent senior building that is part of a retirement community.  "Trained patients" participate in a 1.5-hour training session preparing them for the interview and to evaluate students' clinical interviewing skills. Following the interview, students receive verbal feedback and written assessment of their skills from trained patients. Students also complete a self-assessment of skills survey, attend a debriefing session with faculty, and write a 250-word reflective essay about the encounter.  The Advance Care Planning online module developed by University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, POGOe product #19059, is a recommended component.

Educational objectives: 

After completing this curriculum, learners should be able to:

1. Define and differentiate among types of code status, health care proxies, and advance directives in Illinois.

2. Utilize effective communication techniques in completing an advance directive discussion with a patient.

3. Identify own biases and attitudes toward advance care planning.
