#HMIChat May 2018 on the Clinical Learning Environment

 

 The clinical learning environment (CLE) is a complex construct within which there are numerous components for consideration, measurement, assessment, and optimization. This month’s HMI chat on the CLE captured many different facets of this construct and there was excellent and exciting discussion amongst the contributors! Topics discussed included key components of, managing challenges within, and approaches to changing the CLE. There were a couple of themes that seemed to resonate throughout the discussion 

  • Interpersonal relationships are key when discussing the clinical learning environment
  • Physical spaces can potentially have an effect on interpersonal relationships and community
  • Engagement of all stakeholders, in particular learners and patients, is fundamental in the CLE QI process

Reflection on March 2018 HMIchat on Health Equity

This blog reflection is co-authored by Mobola Campbell-Yesufu and Christina Cruz

The March #HMIchat focused on health equity and social determinants of health. We kicked off the first synchronous hour with excited and engaged health professions educators sharing what health equity means to them. Over the course of the next 23 hours, including both synchronous sessions, we shared our experiences, challenges and future directions in teaching health equity. With almost 100 participants sending 500 plus tweets on this topic, we amassed a veritable treasure trove of teaching pearls during the chat. Here are the highlights:

#HMIchat February 2018 – Let’s talk about trust - of the educator

#HMIchat February 2018 co-authors: Leslie Sheu (@lesliesheu), John Mahan (@MedEdMahan), Larry Hurtubise (@hur2buzy)

"I think to be an entrusted educator means that learners respect you, but also are not afraid to be themselves and be honest to you about their questions and needs." - Lindsey Smith (@DrLindseyMSmith)

We were thrilled that trust was the topic of this month’s #HMIchat, and were astounded to learn that this chat brought together 118 medical educators from around the world (including physicians, physician assistants, nurses, and researchers) across multiple specialties (including medicine, surgery, emergency medicine, ICU, physiatry, and pathology, to name a few).

We came out of the chat reinvigorated with thoughts on how to improve our own work and entrustability as educators, ideas on how to study or think about trust in a broader context, and ways to challenge our current framework. We thought we would frame our key take-aways around the 5 factors of trust (watch this video by Justin Kreuter (@kreuterMD) for a great summary!):

Design Thinking in Health Professions Education - reflections on our January #HMIChat

Authors: HMI Chat team

 This #HMIchat moderated by Jeff Wong (@jwonguprcmeded) and Mark Stephens (@mbstephensmd), from Penn State Hershey (@PennStHershey), in January 2018 focused on #DesignThinking in medical education (#MedEd) and health professions education (#HPE). This topic especially hit home with the HMI Chat team (@teresasoro @kreutermd and me (@erhall1)) given #DesignThinking is grounded in “abductive logic” which facilitates a growth mindset of “what might be” rather than “what might have been.” The @HarvardMacy #HMIChat community wholeheartedly embraces a “what might be” approach and imagines the possibilities as we wrestle with hot topics in medical education with subject matter experts and international colleagues.

#HMIchat December 2017 – Cost and Value in Health Professions Education

Jonathan Foo, Margaret Hay, Stephen Maloney

Cost and value are so pervasive in our day to day decision-making, that it often slips by unnoticed. The December #HMIChat brought the concepts of cost and value in medical education out of the dark and kicked it around like an old wallet – yielding an insightful and passionate discussion touching upon the themes of understanding value in the context of contemporary teaching and learning practices, applying cost and value deliberately with appropriate measurement, and developing a common language for cost and value.

#HMIchat October 2017: “Learners-as-Educators

 

The Caffe Nero on Longwood Avenue couldn’t have been a more perfect place to reflect with Teresa Soro and Elissa Hall on the October #HMIChat I moderated, and not just because of the great lattes. October’s chat on “Learners-as-Educators” discussed how to develop health professions learners at every level into teachers themselves. I love the pay-it-forward nature of this idea, that everyone has something to contribute to and to inspire the next generation of learners. It had been at Caffe Nero that I decided--as a trainee--to dedicate my career to medical education, so returning there to talk about this topic resonated deeply.

#HMIchat September 2017- The “Post-AMEE chat”

During AMEE 2017 there were a few recurring concepts. One of them was Equity and how we, within health professions education, can both be more aware of our own biases and promote equity in health professions education. The subject resonated with a lot of us HMI alumni that attended the conference and we decided to see what our HMI community thought via our September Tweet Chat.
