The ACT ( Ambulatory Care Teaching ) Project: A novel modular workshop methodology for faculty development

The University of Toronto medical school expansion, a shift towards distributed medical education and the growth of interprofessional education have all led to larger numbers of increasingly diverse groups of health professions educators seeking faculty development. Diversity amongst groups of faculty, with respect to discipline, specialty and practice setting, makes it a challenge to meet their individual learning needs. This session will present a flexible, modular methodology that has been developed in the area of ambulatory care teaching to enhance the ability to tailor a workshop to the specific needs of a particular audience.

Constructing the "Good" Patient: Insights for Medical Education Research from the Standpoint of Patients

Patient-centred care is a core principle at the heart of health care delivery and thus is essential to the organization of care and central to the physician-patient relationship. However, patients are not a homogenous group and there have been few studies that provide direction on how to involve them in education, research and care in a meaningful way. Much of the literature to date has focused on physician accounts of the "difficult" patient. Who then is the good patient as we construct them in medical narratives? And what are the implications of this for medical education research? This presentation will explore how the role of the patient has developed and evolved over time in clinical, education and social science literature and discuss the implications of this for future research. Nancy McNaughton will draw on her extensive experience with the Standardized Patient Program and its role in medical education and Fiona Webster will draw on her research undertaking qualitative studies with patients who experience osteoarthritic pain.

Teaching the Intrinsic CanMEDS Roles: Broadening the Curriculum Beyond Bioscience

    The CanMEDS framework has highlighted the current societal expectation that doctors be more than just medical experts and skilled technicians. However, the six non-Medical Expert CanMEDS Roles, recently renamed the Intrinsic CanMEDS Roles by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons, have proven challenging to teach. These Roles rely on ideas and facts from outside the scientific disciplines traditionally represented in medical curricula, requiring a re-evaluation of what we think of as 'medical knowledge'.
