101 - Teaching Medical and Interprofessional Learners in the Nursing Home: Overcoming Barriers and Changing Attitudes (AMDA Foundation Sponsored Session) - CME/CMD credits are not available for this session
Session Description: Teaching medical students, resident physicians, geriatric medicine fellows, and interprofessional learners in the nursing home setting can be a rewarding experience for the learners, the supervising attending and patients. In fact, such experiences are critical to the future of geriatric medicine and the quality of our long-term care health system. Unfortunately, it can become a negative experience when attempting to navigate the ever-changing Medicare rules, residency training regulations and academic political landscape, while still maintaining high quality patient care. This full-day workshop will include an important review of core competencies, training requirements, and proper documentation to ensure LCME/ACGME and Medicare obligations are met. Providing constructive feedback to learners is a core skill that even seasoned instructors struggle to do well. From novice to expert, we can all benefit from learning how to do this better. In the afternoon, participants will have the opportunity to work in small groups choosing two of four breakout sessions that will allow each attendee to take home new content and instructional strategies that can be adapted to their teaching situation.
Review the US experience with teaching nursing homes, including the implications for meeting core competencies, primary care training requirements, and ACGME requirements.
Delineate and practice practical ways to improve feedback for learners.
Discuss practical content and innovative educational strategies for teaching long term medicine and interprofessional care in the nursing home setting.
Enhance communication with patients, families, and caregivers regarding goals of care and advanced care planning.
