Drug formularies are a necessary part of medication management in hospitals and health systems. The system-level P&T committee at BJC HealthCare, a multihospital health system in St. Louis, Missouri, developed an approach to standardization of a system-wide formulary using available layered learners to complete the work in an expedited manner before implementation of a system-wide electronic medical record. The formulary standardization work was allocated to reviewers-including pharmacy students, residents, clinical pharmacy specialists, and pharmacy leadership-according to the complexity of the drug class under review, and a pharmacist was assigned to oversee and support the learner (student or resident) as class reviews were performed...

BACKGROUND: Global economic forces, political decisions, and natural disasters are only some of the factors that affect contemporary healthcare education. Given the centrality of health in all settings, the future of healthcare education depends on how we overcome these difficult circumstances. METHODS: Through a series of collaborative activities involving healthcare educators from around the world and their attempts to overcome these difficulties, the authors have developed a conceptual model centered around the people involved, the impact of culture, and organizations and systems...

Cardiology remains a specialty that is dominated by men. Even though half of all medical students and over 40% of internal medicine residents are women, the number of women in the field of cardiology remains low. The reasons for the persistent lack of increase in cardiology trainees are not well understood and are likely multifactorial. Despite this under-representation, women cardiologists are increasingly visible in leadership roles, including those in research science, health systems administration, professional societies, and clinical practice...

Since 2006 the Australian Medical Council (AMC) accreditation standards have required medical schools to comprehensively address issues related to the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Australia, and Māori in New Zealand. This has spanned areas of staff expertise, staff and student recruitment, curriculum and institutional leadership. These Indigenous specific standards have, until now, been absent for specialist medical college accreditation. The AMC revised its accreditation standards for specialist medical colleges in 2015, and for the first time included Indigenous specific standards...

BACKGROUND: Despite international recommendations and supportive evidence, there are few examples of scaled-up and sustained programs to provide adolescents with sexuality education. Moreover, despite acknowledgment that building community support and responding to resistance are key challenges, there is a lack of detailed discussion on specific programmatic strategies to address these issues. OBJECTIVES: This article reviews the work of 2 organizations-Aahung and Rutgers Pakistan-that are successfully implementing large-scale sexuality education programs in Pakistan, collectively reaching more than 500,000 students...

Interprofessional health care teams have been shown to improve patient safety and reduce medical errors, among other benefits. Introducing interprofessional concepts to students in full day events is an established model that allows students to learn together. Our group developed an academic day for first-year students devoted to an introductory interprofessional education (IPE) experience, 'IPE Day'. In total, 438 students representing medicine, dentistry, pharmacy and optometry gathered together, along with 25 facilitators, for IPE Day...

BACKGROUND: The rising number of young people going to university has led to concerns about an increasing demand for student mental health services. We aimed to assess whether provision of mindfulness courses to university students would improve their resilience to stress. METHODS: We did this pragmatic randomised controlled trial at the University of Cambridge, UK. Students aged 18 years or older with no severe mental illness or crisis (self-assessed) were randomly assigned (1:1), via remote survey software using computer-generated random numbers, to receive either an 8 week mindfulness course adapted for university students (Mindfulness Skills for Students [MSS]) plus mental health support as usual, or mental health support as usual alone...

A growing body of research illustrates the importance of aligning efforts across the operational continuum to achieve diversity goals. This alignment begins with the institutional mission and the message it conveys about the priorities of the institution to potential applicants, community, staff, and faculty. The traditional themes of education, research, and service dominate most medical school mission statements. The emerging themes of physician maldistribution, overall primary-care physician shortage, diversity, and cost control are cited less frequently...

Team-based learning (TBL) is a learner-centered method widely used in health sciences education. The aim of this action research study was to determine the contribution of TBL to the learning experience of students participating in a nursing leadership course. The study was conducted in 2 cycles over 2 semesters, and TBL was embedded in regular class hours. Results suggest that TBL made positive contributions to student learning.

Interprofessional collaboration is an essential approach to comprehensive patient care. As previous studies have argued, interprofessional education (IPE) must be integrated in a stepwise, systematic manner in undergraduate health profession education programmes. Given this perspective, first-year IPE is a critical opportunity for building the foundation of interprofessional collaborative practice. This study aims to explore the first-year students' learning processes and the longitudinal changes in their perceptions of learning in a year-long IPE programme...

BACKGROUND: The presence of a registered nurse (RN) workforce that is culturally and linguistically familiar with underrepresented minorities promotes effective health care for patients. A lack of diversity in the nursing education pipeline has led to a lack of diversity among registered nurses. METHODS: This qualitative descriptive study explored faculty perceptions of factors that attracted and maintained a diverse nursing student body at three different universities with large percentages of minority students...

The NHS is an evolving landscape. While the level of clinical knowledge conferred to medical students remains constant, their competence in other skills, such as leadership, needs to be enhanced in order for them to successfully work within the health-care system. The importance of leadership is considered at the start and end of a medical degree - when applying to medical school with various examples of leading a team, and upon balancing scenarios of leadership when sitting the situational judgement test in final year...

INTRODUCTION: The role of pharmacy students in student-run free clinics (SRFCs) across the United States has not been well-defined. This study sought to assess the level of involvement and roles of pharmacy students in SRFCs as well as their interprofessional collaboration. METHODS: An online survey was sent to each pharmacy school registered with the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP). The survey addressed the following concepts within SRFCs: pharmacy student roles, precepting and school of pharmacy involvement, interprofessional experience, leadership positions held by pharmacy students, and dissemination of feedback in this service-learning experience...

PURPOSE: An innovative certificate program aimed at expanding the rural pharmacy workforce, increasing the number of pharmacists with expertise in rural practice, and improving healthcare outcomes in rural North Carolina is described. SUMMARY: Predicted shortages of primary care physicians and closures of critical access hospitals are expected to worsen existing health disparities. Experiential education in schools and colleges of pharmacy primarily takes place in academic medical centers and, unlike experiential education in medical schools, rarely emphasizes the provision of patient care in rural U...

In response to systemic challenges facing the US healthcare system, many medical students, residents and practicing physicians are pursuing a Master in Business Administration (MBA) degree. The value of such proposition remains poorly defined. The aim of this review is to analyze current literature pertaining to the added value of MBA training for physician executives (PEs). We hypothesized that physicians who supplement their clinical expertise with business education gain a significant competitive advantage...
