Safe Steroid Use: A Self-Assessment Module American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology
This self-assessment module is designed to help practicing allergy/immunology providers obtain new knowledge, as well as reaffirm existing knowledge. It also helps allergists/immunologists evaluate and maintain their clinical competence. The module consists of 30 case-based, multiple-choice questions. Comprehensive discussions provide evidence-based explanations regarding all answer options, as well as provides supporting references from the current literature. The questions address four areas of safe steroid use, including: Optimal Dosing, Side Effects–Prevention and Treatment, Adverse Reactions, and Patient Management.
AMA Stepsforward Initiative - Preventing Physician Burnout American Medical Association
Increasing administrative responsibilities – due to regulatory pressures and evolving payment and care delivery models – reduce the amount of time physicians spend delivering direct patient care. Increasing responsibilities and stress can lead to physician burnout, which plagues 50 percent of practicing physicians. Burnout can have a significant impact on organizational productivity, morale, costs and the quality of care being delivered. By measuring and responding to burnout, physicians and their practices will be able to reduce sources of stress and intervene with programs and policies that support professional well-being.
AMA Stepforward Initiative - Advancing Choosing Wisely American Medical Association
Increasing administrative responsibilities due to regulatory pressures and evolving payment and care-delivery models reduce the amount of time physicians spend delivering direct patient care. When both physicians and patients understand how to make wise treatment decisionssuch as choosing care that is supported by evidence, is not duplicative, has the lowest possible risk for harm, and is truly necessarypatient care and physician satisfaction will improve. When patients are informed about how tests, treatments, and procedures are selected and involving them in the decision-making process of their care, patients can feel more satisfied. In turn, physicians will also be more satisfied when they are able to make treatment decisions for patients that they believe are best rather than those that will protect them from malpractice claims. As the nation increasingly focuses on ways to provide safer, higher-quality care to patients, the overuse of health care resources is an issue of considerable concern. As much as 30 percent of care delivered is duplicative or unnecessary and has limited health benefit. Choosing Wisely® is a campaign that aims to promote conversations between clinicians and patients to choose care that is supported by evidence, is not duplicative, has the lowest possible risk for harm, and is truly necessary. This module will provide the steps needed to understand how to incorporate Choosing Wisely® into the practice in an effort to improve patient care.
Patient Safety Curriculum National Patient Safety Foundation
The NPSF Patient Safety Curriculum is a 10-module, online course intended to equip the learner with the foundational knowledge necessary to understand the context, key principles, and competencies associated with the discipline of patient safety, and how these tenets and skills are applied to everyday practice. It takes the learner through the history of the patient safety movement, describes the science and disciplines used in this work, presents current best practices, and outlines strategies for overcoming barriers to safe care. The curriculum modules are aligned with educational standards for patient safety competencies and are anchored by didactic audio/PowerPoint lectures given by NPSF board members and members of the quizzes to focus learners on key patient safety principles. This knowledge is imperative for those working in, or in partnership with, the health care system of today.
