An ad hoc committee will plan and conduct a 1.5-day public workshop to explore gaps—within and across the continuum of health professional education—that impede progress toward the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s (IHI’s) expanded Triple Aim1 that includes better care for the caretakers themselves. The discussions will then look at current and future technologies that could bridge the identified gaps in order to optimize health and education system performance and access in high-, middle-, and low-income regions.
The workshop will encourage open sharing of ideas across professions, countries, and sectors within areas such as:
Knowledge, Skills, Attitude, and Competencies
- Using technology to support health professional learning (especially with rural and underserved populations), to encourage interprofessional education and collaboration, and to address the social determinants of health
- Transforming health care delivery environments to enable interprofessional, team-based care, and to maximize providers’ education and training for achieving the Triple Aim
- Teaching trust and humanism from a distance
1 The Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) Triple Aim is a framework for health system performance involving (1) better patient care (including quality and satisfaction), (2) improved population health, and (3) reduced health care costs (IHI, 2018).
- Using technology with health professions, patients, and populations to address “health in all policies” and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
- Using technology as the interface between education, practice, patients, and populations
- Preparing the current and future health workforce for understanding and appropriately using personalized genomic data for interacting with patients and health consumers
- Learning from digital native millennial health profession students and faculty to manage knowledge obsolescence (staying organized and current)
- Learning from social media platforms and applying lessons to education and credentialing
- Employing artificial intelligence in decision support
- Creating new ways of employing and using simulation, wearables, and other technological innovations for educational purposes
- Leveraging technology to expand access to health professions education (expanding capacity)
- Addressing a lack of preceptor training sites and virtual supervision for trainees from all the health professions
- Optimizing teaching and learning for health professional education through technology (including faculty development and recognizing errors introduced through technology)
- Exploring challenges of access to and unfamiliarity of technology in select populations
Assessment, Evaluation, and Regulation
- Using big data and crowd sourcing for structuring more individualized online education
- Understanding the role of technology in real-time and automated assessment and evaluation, accreditation, and curriculum design
- Exploring regulation and accountability in the use of technology and software applications, including building the evidence for updating regulatory processes and requirements
The committee will develop a workshop agenda, select and invite speakers and discussants, and moderate the discussions. Following the workshop, a
proceedings of the presentations and discussions at the workshop will be prepared by a designated rapporteur in accordance with institutional guidelines.
