Work hour restrictions create limited time with residents, so it is important to use every moment to assess senior resident trainees and test their competency. This recorded webinar focuses on advanced techniques to assess surgical skills and give feedback in a more interactive curriculum.

Moderator: Matthew D. Beal, MD, FAOA
Presenters: Samir Mehta, MD, FAOA, and Terrance D. Peabody, MD, FAOA

This webinar focuses on implementation and development of a plan to track faculty development.

Viewers will learn:
  • The need for a faculty development plan to prevent burnout and remain compliant with the 80-hour work week.
  • Competency-based education.
  • Culturally appropriate faculty development across the surgical education spectrum.
  • Military academic faculty development in the face of competing priorities such as military readiness... Details

The evolving dynamic of health care reimbursement in the United States is a consequence of unsustainable expenditures for care whose value is unclear, and the subsequent 2010 legislation—the Affordable Care Act (ACA)—whose goal is to address these deficits while improving access to care.

Approximately 17% of the gross national product is devoted to health care delivery, higher than any other country; a number destined to climb with the expanded coverage the Act... Details

Effective communication is critical for leaders in all industries; medicine is no exception. Communication is seminal to both the success of organizations and the negotiation between leaders and their teams. As the workforce has become more diverse during previous decades and as the spectrum of value systems have expanded over time, the need for leaders to effectively communicate has become both more complex and more compelling.

Many industries devote significant time ... Details

Payors, led by The Federal Government, are adopting health care compensation models based on quality and outcomes instead of volume. Providers who have explored and implemented these models have encountered unintended ethical issues.

These issues include:

- assuming the financial risks and consequences for caring for the sickest patients

- erosion of the traditional surgeon-patient relationship

- increasing... Details

The Institute of Medicine considers limited health literacy a “silent epidemic,” as approximately half of Americans lack those competencies necessary for making informed decisions regarding their health.

Limited health literacy significantly impedes the effective dissemination and comprehension of relevant health information. It also complicates communication, compromises care, and leads to poorer outcomes: poor health, early death, and worse control of chronic... Details

A RAND study commissioned in 1995 by the AAOS projected that 7.5 full-time equivalents per 100,000 would be needed in the future. While the national average density of orthopaedic surgeons per 100,000 people was 8.72 in 2011, no other assessment has been made since the last millennium. The progressively aging population, as well as an overall projected physician shortage, will inevitably increase the demand for orthopaedic services.

Elderly patients require three... Details

Society wants safe, competent orthopaedic surgeons and has entrusted the profession to self-regulate the teaching and certification of its trainees. The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) accredits graduate medical education (GME) programs. In 2003, the ACGME implemented an 80-hour work week restriction and then further restricted work hours in 2011.

In 1999, the ACGME Core Competencies and Outcomes Project was initiated. The Next... Details

We are reaching the point of intersection of major forces in graduate medical education. These forces include: lack of basic skills of incoming residents; growth of subspecialization in orthopaedics (with its expansion in knowledge and surgical technique); limits on funding to expand training; and lack of independence for senior level trainees. The economic pressures on GME funding and the high opportunity cost to trainees are making fellowship years more difficult to support. In... Details

Have you thought about how you would deal with a threatening patient or family member? More than ever we hear of violent acts occurring in the community, but this trend also affects health care facilities. Have you experienced a threatening or violent patient or know someone who has? Do you and your staff have a plan for dealing with a violent patient or family member in your hospital or clinic environment?

This symposium will provide some insight into the scope of the ... Details

The next phase of health care reform will accelerate formation of integrated health delivery systems and the creation of value and savings through population health management. Accomplishing this goal requires several key factors include:

1) groups of physicians that are legally allowed to work together coordinate patient care and be reimbursed for non-traditional quality-based results

2) integrated delivery systems that can manage the full spectrum of a ... Details

In the past 15 years in the United States, overdoses and deaths from prescription opioids have reached epidemic proportions. The widespread use of opioids complicates management of the orthopaedic surgery patient in the acute and chronic setting. Furthermore, orthopaedic surgeons are among the top prescribers of opioids in the complex setting of chronic use, abuse, and diversion. Through leadership and education, orthopaedic surgeons can help shape the solution for this critical... Details

Almost 60 million Americans or nearly 20% of the population live in rural areas. Providing sufficient Orthopedic Care to this population presents a unique set of challenges for patients, providers, and institutions. Patients prefer local care, however, rural hospitals are struggling to keep their doors open. “Between 2010 and 2014, nearly 50 rural hospitals have closed. This affects “The Golden Hour” for patients in these areas - that period of time after a traumatic injury when... Details

Within a quality driven reimbursement model, we need to consider cost effective and patient centric ways to provide high value health care. Telemedicine/telehealth is evolving as one such innovative way to improve care while managing cost.

It is predicted that orthopaedics will need to conceptualize healthcare differently and take a leadership role in developing effective telehealth options to patients. Most academic centers and tertiary care facilities are in urban... Details

Individual excellence, although necessary, is not adequate to provide effective patient care. Improving the patient experience is dependent on a team approach. Physicians’ performance measures have traditionally been based on individual achievements. In order to develop a culture improving patient care, one needs to recognize that this requires a team approach. Most faculty have not had formal training in the science of teamwork, communication, and systems thinking. The focus of this ... Details

During the fourth year of medical school, students take away orthopaedic rotations to "audition" for residency, and there is a lack uniformity in the other rotations. This results in graduating student with great variability the knowledge, skills, and preparation for their future careers. Several medical schools are reconsidering their curriculum to better prepare students for practice, some even compressing the curriculum to three years.

This symposium explores the... Details

Residency training in orthopaedic surgery in the U.S. continues to be a fundamentally time-based process. While this may be effective for the majority of trainees, it is not successful for all. Even our program directors believe that 10-20% of graduating residents are not fully competent in orthopaedic surgery. Identification of underperforming residents early in training continues to be inconsistent. A shift toward competency-based progression in orthopaedic surgery training may... Details

Sometimes the most talented, skilled physicians with whom you work are also the ones most prone to displaying challenging behaviors. Often, these physicians are not cognizant of how their colleagues perceive them. How can you—as the supervisor, friend, and/or peer of such clinicians—help ensure that patients continue to benefit from their clinical and surgical gifts without behavioral difficulties diminishing their contributions?
