Best Practices & New Tools for Teaching What Every Student Needs to Know About Palliative Care

Join our interprofessional panel of expert clinical educators as they share tips and strategies in teaching the core principles of palliative care–and preview exciting new tools for faculty and students.

This presentation focuses on primary palliative care–the idea that all health professions students should develop the skills to improve outcomes and quality of life for seriously ill patients and their families.

Dr. Susan Merel will provide an overview of the Aquifer Palliative Care project, which developed a national standardized curriculum and virtual patient cases (coming in July 2022) that addresses critical gaps in palliative care learning across undergraduate medical and health professions education. She will also provide a preview of the new case content and structure, and discuss ways to integrate the cases during the Q&A session.

Our panel of experts will present examples from their experience that highlights strategies for teaching the concepts that every health professions student should know, with a focus on building skills and core competencies needed to provide patient-centered care.

Coaching for the Development of Master Adaptive Learners

The pace of the development of new biomedical knowledge and of changes in healthcare systems requires physicians and medical students to develop the ability to seamlessly adapt new information and concepts into their existing mental frameworks in order to become experts. Never has this dynamic been more in evidence than during the COVID-19 pandemic, in which new knowledge, skills, and processes of care have arisen at a furious rate. In order to develop into what the American Medical Association has termed Master Adaptive Learners, medical students, typically highly-motivated learners, will benefit from coaching from their clinical teachers to facilitate their self-regulated learning and help them develop the habits of mind required for making clinical decisions in modern practice.

In this workshop, we will present a schemata of the Master Adaptive Learner process and introduce novel tools to aid family physician faculty as they coach their students towards their development of cognitive mastery. The workshop will combine didactic presentation and practical application of the new coaching tools so that attendees will come away with useful skills to bring back to their home institutions. The presenters will encourage active discussion and group participation so as to benefit from the shared experience in the room in developing best practices for making use of the novel cognitive coaching framework and tools. You can find the handout from the workshop here.
