August 24, 2019

Medical students creating their own oaths: Is that the best way to enter the profession?

August 19, 2019

Ira Bedzow, Ph.D.As the fall approaches, medical schools across the country are preparing for the arrival of a new crop of medical students. The primary emphasis of medical school is to teach technical competencies so that students graduate with the medical knowledge and know-how to diagnose and treat disease.  Recognizing the health care is getting more and more complex, schools are also introducing new and evolving fields like health systems science, interprofessional education, and medical ethics as standard parts of the medical school curriculum, so that students learn to think more holistically while managing various stakeholders as they provide care.

Understanding Credentialing Vs. Privileging as They Relate to Resuscitation Courses

July 24, 2019

David MarkensonWhile providers have the responsibility to offer an evidence-based resuscitation training program, they also are given the freedom to choose a program whose educational scope and delivery method suits their needs. This latitude of choice involves the ability to choose from a wide variety of offerings, some of which may wind up not meeting organizational end goals. It’s here that credentialing and privileging should be seen for what they are, notes Dr. Markenson, who also is a pediatric emergency medicine and pediatric critical care physician, as well as being internationally recognized as a pioneer and leader in disaster medicine, health system preparedness and education, public health preparedness, and operational medicine.

Dr. Samant Virk: Ensuring successful outcomes for weight loss surgery patients with telehealth

July 22, 2019

BioIncBariatric weight-loss surgery is a perfect example of how telehealth can improve outcomes for a variety of reasons. Nearly every American owns some kind of device – computer, tablet or smartphone – allowing them to connect with a health care provider from a location that is convenient for them. By completing pre- and postoperative visits through a video connection with the bariatric surgery center, patients can reduce their travel time to receive pre-surgical care, and are more likely to complete their pre-surgical workup and eventually undergo bariatric surgery.
