Genetic differences in humans cause clinical difficulties in opioid treatment. Previous studies indicate that a single nucleotide polymorphism in the catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) gene (rs4680; p.Val(158)Met) may present as a predictive biomarker for the response to morphine treatment. In our previous pilot exploratory study, patients with a G/G genotype were demonstrated to require a higher dose of morphine, compared with patients with A/A and A/G genotypes. In the present study, the aim was to replicate the findings in an independent cohort of opioid-treatment-naïve patients exhibiting various types of cancer...

Multiple interprofessional integrated modules (MIIM) 1 and 2 are two required, cross-curricular courses developed by a team of health professions faculty, as well as experts in education, within the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Chile. MIIM 1 focused on virtual cases requiring team decision-making in real time. MIIM 2 focused on a team-based community project. The evaluation of MIIM included student, teacher, and coordinator perspectives. To explore the perceptions of this interprofessional experience quantitative data in the form of standardised course evaluations regarding teaching methodology, interpersonal relations and the course organisation and logistics were gathered...

Faculty evaluation for the purpose of promotion and tenure frequently includes peer review as a part of the process. Faculty review by a peer may provide an assessment of teaching effectiveness and information related to the faculty member's professional development activities. This article presents an innovative, evidence-based approach using selected National League for Nursing core competencies and International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning clinical simulation standards in the development of a faculty peer review tool to gather data on clinical teaching to be used during the promotion and tenure process...

This study investigated the state of gerontology content in health and social service education programs in Ontario, and readiness indicators for change among administrators and faculty. We conducted a survey of teaching faculty (n = 100) and deans or directors (n = 56) of 89 education programs, which revealed mixed evidence on readiness for change. Most respondents thought their programs were adequate but needed enhancement. However, they were unaware of published gerontological competencies with which to evaluate their curricula...

Many first-year biology students begin college with high aspirations but limited skills in terms of those needed for their success. Teachers are increasingly focused on students' lack of metacognitive awareness combined with students' inability to self-regulate learning behaviors. To address this need, we have designed a series of out-of-class assignments to provide explicit instruction on memory and learning. Our metacognition modules consist of six video assignments with reflective journaling prompts, allowing students to explore the relationship between the learning cycle, neuroplasticity, memory function, expert and novice thinking, and effective study strategies...

Introduction: One of the most important extracurricular aspects of medical studies in Germany is a research thesis completed by most students. This research project often times conveys relevant competencies for the physician's role as scientist. Nevertheless, the choice of the right project remains a challenge. Reasons for this are among others, missing structures for a comprehensive overview of research groups and their respective projects. Description of the project: We developed the online platform Doktabörse as an online marketplace for doctoral research projects...

PURPOSE: Professionalism values are critical to developing health science students. Although many educational programs strive to develop professionalism values within students, few include faculty and staff. We evaluated the professional values of our faculty, staff, and students and evaluated the acceptance of this professionalism program. METHODS: Faculty members adopted a 5-item professionalism assessment survey (honesty, teamwork, responsibility, respect, and communication) and performed a 360° peer assessment among our basic/applied science faculty, clinical faculty, and administrative staff...
