New Ideas

One great aspect of the roundtable is that it brings together students from around the country and many different medical schools. I picked up some great ideas today that I think can be implemented at UC.

–As a clinical skills activity, we can practice how to disclose a medical mistake to the patient, reporting death of the patient to family members. In addition, simulations done with nursing students would be really helpful for developing interprofessional collaboration

–Stop the line phrase: “I need clarification” can be used more in the clinical setting

–Mental health and emotional intelligence training should be more emphasized

–Medications should sometimes also have informed consent from the patient

Some of these changes can be made in the curricula, especially in the clinical skills class and Physician&Society in which we should emphasize more patient safety issues.
