Lightning Talk Description: Two documents were published to advance interprofessional practice/education in the clinical learning environment (CLE). These documents, the “Pathways to Excellence” are put forward by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and the National Collaborative for Improving the Clinical Learning Environment (NCICLE). Both identify six focus areas for CLE’s to center the delivery of best possible outcomes (NCICLE adapting the ACGME version).vi ACGME’s document, known as the Clinical Learning Environment Review (CLER) Program, is a separate accreditation process and acts to evaluate and promote improvements to CLE’s.ii CLER, updated in 2019, includes Teaming, which was not articulated in the previous version. To meet the focus areas and with professional collaborations already in place, John Peter Smith (JPS) Health Network’s Department of Academic Affairs and the UNTHSC Department of Interprofessional Education and Practice created plans to address Teaming in Graduate Medical Education (GME) didactics for early career physicians and student doctors.
Knowing small endeavors result in large outcomes,i the presenters initiated a three-part series of discourses on the interprofessionalism, for which early career physicians can positively influence teamwork and conflict. Presenters will share our collaboration, objectives of our three-part series, outcomes, limitations, and next steps to ensure inclusion of diverse health professionals.
This lightning talk demonstrates a practice-education partnership, where community hospitals are training residents and interns and health science centers have centralized departments for interprofessional education. With goals being the same, to ensure interprofessional collaborative practice, presenters found an opportunity to address teaming across an academic year. Leadership and faculty attend the series with their residents, interns, and student doctors to promote engagement and share their own stories and meaning. Leadership and faculty model effective leadership and teaming, and thus, offer opportunity for those in training to voice their own developing stories and perspectives in a safe place.iv
This lightning talk demonstrates workplace learning and partnerships to address team-based workforce development and retention. This series provides novel coaching and discussion around teaming to result in better outcomes through collective learning. Learners are asked to consider and discuss how they contribute to awareness building, effective communication, trust, cooperation, and reflection.iii
The content is rooted in research around health systems' teams. The series draws out reflection, sharing, and ideas for creating conditions to meet the CLER Teaming requirements. Presenters will share the content used to create open spaces for interns and residents, as well as their leadership and faculty.
