Target Audience and Needs
General internal medicine faculty physicians and allied health practitioners in inpatient and outpatient settings need to receive regular updates on current evidence-based guidelines for general internal medicine practice, effective transitions of care, and other systems-based practices. The series aims to reach the wider audience of general internal medicine practitioners at Ben Taub Hospital, the Baylor Clinic, the Harris Health System, the Baylor St. Luke's Medical Center, and the Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center. The series also aims to address the challenges of developing and implementing quality improvement strategies and maintaining quality patient care as general internal medicine practices continue to evolve. Emphasis will be placed on the importance of professional development activities, such as teaching and scholarship, as a means to keep knowledge of evolving general internal medicine practices current.
Educational methods will include lectures, case presentations, literature review, and panel discussion.
At the conclusion of the sessions, the participants should be able to:
- Review the medical literature and identify evidence-based changes in general internal medicine practice.
- Apply guidelines and systems-based advances relevant to general internal medicine practice.
- Develop strategies specific to common medical conditions to improve the quality of care at clinical practice sites.
- Enhance academic skills by engaging in educational activities such as teaching and scholarship.
Participants may be asked to complete a session evaluation.
