Bad Medicine: Potentially Harmful or Ineffective Medical Practices? @ Skyview 5-6
Apr 24 @ 08:00 – 09:00

 

Robert Hickey, MD, FAAP

How accurate is the witticism “half of what you learned in medical school is wrong, the difficulty lies in figuring out which half?” It turns out to be remarkably accurate.  In this session, we will discover how routinely accepted medical practices, including IV fluids, oxygen, monitors, antibiotics, antipyretics, antacids, NSAIDS and more have the potential to harm patients. Each of the individual topics are laden with research opportunities. At the end of this session, it will be impossible for an attendee to say “I can’t think of a research idea.”

Clear concise communication with patients is a critical component of the experience of care.

Communication techniques will be discussed and tools to enhance providers’ communication skills with patients will be introduced.

 

Workshop: “I Feel You,” Understanding Generational Gaps to Improve Education and Leadership @ Skyview 3

During this VERY interactive session, participants will understand generational differences related to learning activities as well as management responsibilities perspectives based on generational gaps (in short = how we think is how we act). Attendees will discuss different techniques to narrow differences and to allow a better educational/working environment since for the first time in Medicine, four generations are working at the same time in our systems.
