Presented by Meg Keeley, MD, Professor of Pediatrics, UVA School of Medicine, Assistant Dean for Student Affairs

Description/Learning Objectives: Expert clinicians achieve exceptional performance via experiential learning over an extended period of time. Evidence in cognitive psychology, neuroscience and education describes the importance of deliberate practice (DP) in the development of expertise. The use of DP augmented with master coaching is proposed to facilitate the development of both knowledge and clinical skills in the current training and practice environment, thereby expediting expertise development. The interactive workshop will utilize a variety of teaching formats based on Kolb’s learning cycle to provide educators with practical tools to guide novice learners to engage in DP related to both cognitive-based knowledge acquisition and procedural skill-based topics.

Following this session, participants will be able to: Describe the essential components of and evidence base for deliberate practice as the key to expertise development; incorporate spaced learning and retrieval strategies to promote deliberate practice, which leads to knowledge development; and utilize a validated model to design an experience to guide learners through repeated deliberate practice for clinical skill acquisition. (1.5 CME credits)

Location: 2400 Old Ivy Road, Room 189

Facilitators: Lisa Harris
Target Audience: Advanced Leaders

Most leaders at mid-level management stop trying to make change happen because they believe it is too difficult, if not impossible. Mid-level managers are “sandwiched” between their supervisor and their team . They learn to cope rather than learning to influence. The purpose of this class is to help leaders explore the emotions associated with change initiatives, determine vital behaviors that make change successful, diagnose resistance, and apply sources of influence to any change initiative.

      Trial Innovation Network - Design Lab Opportunity The JHU-Tufts Trial Innovation Center is looking for investigators who are interested in pursuing innovative clinical trial designs to participate in a Design Lab. The Design Lab will explore approaches to the design and implementation of clinical trials that integrate efficacy and effectiveness using E2E or EE2. Efficacy to Effectiveness (E2E) trials begin with an efficacy trial that expands its eligibility and endpoints while the drug is under regulatory review. Efficacy and Effectivenss Too (EE2) trials incorporate both efficacy and effectiveness components into a single trial, with a study sample that includes a…

      Simple Scoring System Could Help Patients Avoid Diabetes, Study Suggests

      Mark DeBoer, MD (photo courtesy of UVA Connect) UVA Connect November 8, 2018 A simple scoring system can track the reduction in diabetes risk produced by lifestyle changes and medication in people with pre-diabetes, a new study has found. The findings suggest the potential that the tool could be a good way to motivate patients to stick with the diet and exercise changes that could save them from developing full-blown diabetes. The scoring system also may be useful for comparing the effectiveness of different diabetes interventions, the researchers report. “We knew that a person’s MetS severity score helped predict their…
