Description

In this interactive workshop, Grace Huang, Editor-in-Chief of MedEdPORTAL and editorial board member for Academic Medicine, will discuss how every teaching activity is an opportunity to 'make it count twice' by transforming it into a scholarly product. She will focus on educational interventions that have generalizable value to others and have been evaluated to some extent and will provide tips on how to position your work in a way that highlights your ideas.

After the webinar, participants will be able to:

∙ Devise strategies for transforming teaching and educational activities into scholarship

∙ Describe publishing venues for medical education work, using Academic Medicine and MedEdPORTAL as exemplars

∙ Develop short-term goals for disseminating their work and ideas through scholarship

To better prepare the participants for the Advanced Clinical Research Training Institute in Latin America (CRTI-LA) statistical analysis workshop, Dr. George Tomlinson introduces the basics of uploading and working with data in the statistical software R. R is a free system for statistical computation and graphics. It consists of a language and an editor that allows the user to write code, produce graphics, and run saved programs stored in script files. To learn more about the workshop, please visit the Advanced CRTI-LA webpage for more information about the curriculum, application and your eligibility.

Description

The Clinical Research Training Institute is a program created to produce leaders armed with ideas for clinical hematology research and the tools and resources to make their ideas a reality. It begins with a week-long workshop in La Jolla, California. During the program, participants will learn different research methods as well as work with faculty to improve their project proposals. After the workshop, the mentees are encouraged to maintain communication with their mentors, at least every three months. Small group leaders and participants will meet again at the ASH Annual Meeting in December and finally at the Final Class meeting at ASH HQ in May of the following year.

One of the most important components of CRTI is the mentorship program. The mentorship relationship is an invaluable experience, especially in the world of clinical Hematology. In this webinar, I will discuss:

∙ the expectations of mentors in the CRTI program

∙ the process of mentor/mentee pairing

∙ best practices for being a great CRTI mentor

∙ and how to work with the home mentor

∙ how to handle a mentorship pairing that may not be the right fit

Description

More than half of practicing physicians exhibit characteristics of chronic stress and burnout. This trend may begin earlier with the observed decline in empathy during medical student training and the alarming rates of burnout in medical and other students in the health professions. In this presentation, Dr. Haramati will review the pathophysiology of stress and present published outcomes on curricular interventions to help students and faculty manage stress, foster empathy and build resilience. He will share his perspective on why it is essential to incorporate mind-body techniques into the work life of faculty and training curriculum for all health professionals—something that will require both skill and courage.

Objectives:

∙ To describe the prevalence of burnout among physicians and other health professionals

∙ To understand the physiology and pathophysiology of stress and the scientific basis for mind-body therapies used to reduce stress and improve well-being

∙ To learn about interventional models currently being explored for medical students, residents, physicians and academic faculty to prevent, limit or reverse burnout and foster resiliency

Description

One of the key educational needs for providers treating patients with sickle cell disease (SCD) is transfusion medicine, and knowing when to transfuse. The first in an education series on SCD, this 1-hour webinar will discuss randomized control trials, acute and chronic transfusion care, complications, choice of blood product, and alloimmunization.

Speakers

  • Jo Howard, MBBChir, MRCP, FRCPath, Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust
  • Victor R. Gordeuk, MD, University of Illinois at Chicago, Chicago, IL

Description

To help ASH members meet the requirements for the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and submit the required data to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), ASH teamed up with Healthmonix’s MIPSPRO to provide ASH members access to Healthmonix’s 2017 Qualified MIPS Registry. ASH and Healthmonix provided a webinar to help ASH members better understand the requirements for MIPS, the impact it will have on reimbursement, and to provide a guide on how to use the MIPSPRO registry. The webinar provided a specialized MIPS reporting plan for hematologists.

Speakers

  • Samuel Silver, MD, PhD, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI
  • Phil Spence, MIPSPRO Consultant, Philadelphia, PA

Description

Providers treating patients with sickle cell disease continually struggle with inefficient reimbursement which can ultimately impact access to care. The Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes and the Diagnosis-Related Group (DRG) codes assigned for these patient visits have a significant impact on reimbursement. There is often a disconnect between a clinician’s documentation and the resulting CPT and DRG codes assigned by a hospital coder. The webinar will outline best practices for documentation of patients with sickle cell disease, and the many major comorbidities and complications for which these patients frequently present. Adequate documentation will help coders assign the correct CPT and DRG codes, ultimately resulting in appropriate care and appropriate reimbursement. The webinar will also provide time for speakers and participants to discuss relevant issues during a question-and-answer session.

Speakers

  • Molly Mandernach, MD, University of Florida
  • Michael DeBaun, MD, Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, Nashville, TN
  • Ellen Riker, Dennis Associates, Washington, DC

Description

Thinking of attending the 2017 ASH Meeting on Hematologic Malignancies? Join us for the first in a series of special webinar previews of the 2017 meeting. Listen to speakers from the meeting as they preview their presentations, then stay for a special Q&A session to talk directly to meeting organizers and find out why you should join us in Chicago in September 2017!

The ASH Meeting on Hematologic Malignancies includes five core malignant hematology themes: leukemia, lymphoma, myelodysplastic syndromes, myeloproliferative neoplasm, and myeloma. This Focus on Myeloproliferative Neoplasms (MPN) webinar will feature a discussion with three clinicians in the area of MPNs regarding how clinical practice has evolved in recent years, as well as discussion of important conclusions from the previous year’s meeting. The doctors will also discuss what to expect in the coming year, with emphasis on how “How I Treat” is a different approach than the classic format of educational and or scientific sessions.

The webinar will include a special Q&A session with meeting organizers for participants to chat about anything related to the meeting or registration.

The next ASH Meeting on Hematologic Malignancies will be held in Chicago, IL, September 8-9, 2017. The program’s “How I Treat” presentations showcase speakers’ evidence-based treatment approaches, identify cutting-edge scientific data that can be translated into new strategies for diagnosis and treatment, and address what to do in cases where there is no data. This meeting is a unique opportunity to join colleagues and top experts in treatment of hematologic malignancies in an intimate, smaller-meeting setting and discuss the latest drug developments and most relevant research findings advancing patient care today.
