    The Art of the Taboo Conversation and Sensitive Feedback

    Webinar (Open)

    Apr 25, 03:00 PM - 04:00 PM (ET)
    Remember that awkward conversation when you "had to" tell a resident or student that they had body odor, that their clothing was a little too revealing, or that they were just a bit too "loud or edgy?" Candid conversations about odor, attire, and behavior are very challenging, even for the most seasoned educator. This highly interactive (and entertaining) webinar will be the first step in helping educators to stop sweating about sweating.  Educators are uniquely positioned to help shape all facets of their learners' professional identity, including non- clinical aspects. Using the ladder of inference as a theoretical framework (which encourages reflection on one's own unconscious bias and the assumptions we make) will allow for a systematic approach to the delivery of feedback. When done skillfully, this feedback can have long-lasting effects on a physician's career and how others perceive them professionally. Fortunately, the approach to these complex topics is quite similar and easy to apply with a bit of practice.  Essential steps for delivering sensitive feedback will be reviewed and modeled with substantial time devoted to group reflection and discussion. Facilitated breakout groups will support faculty and coordinators to become more comfortable with discussing taboo topics and methods for delivering sensitive feedback effectively. Participants will have the opportunity to reflect on challenges they've faced during past experiences, plan strategically for more candid and aligned future discussions, and give feedback to one another for more effective and open conversations.
    Presenters:  Michael Rosenblum, MD; Shannon Murawski, MD; Charles Martin, MD; Reham Shaaban, DO

    Getting Your Projects Across the Finish Line: Concrete Strategies for Effective Project Management

    Webinar (Open)

    May 1, 12:00 PM - 01:00 PM (ET)

    Medical educators all juggle multiple roles and responsibilities, including clinical work, educational responsibilities, and administrative tasks. The initial excitement about a nascent project often leads  to later disappointment or shame when project deadlines are missed  or the idea is not executed as originally conceived.  In this webinar, presenters will discuss the Process Groups model from the field of project management as a framework. Through this lens, presenters will identify a toolkit of behaviors that have facilitated effective project management, including time blocking, goal setting, focusing priorities/progress, working meetings, and incorporating technology. Presenters will share experiences highlight where common pitfalls occur in project management—particularly in GME—and illustrate where application of the toolkit will usher successful completion of a given project or project phase.

    Presenters:  Andrea Poisson Irani, MD; Delany Goulet, MD, FACP; Jonathan Salud, MD, MPH; Lonika Sood, MBBS, MHPE
