Priority 1: PATIENT AS EDUCATOR

Digital Narrative Medicine for Bipolar Disorder
“All sorrows can be born if you put them in a story or tell a story about them.” Isak Dinesen Medical anthropologists argue that illness narratives are not merely accounts of symptoms but a mechanism through which people become aware of and make sense out of their experiences. A transformation takes place from something lived into something interpreted that is given structure and meaning through the dialogue that takes place between the patient and physician. “Narrativization” therefore acts as a reflexive, therapeutic, and even a transformative mechanism for people who have experienced illness. Inspired by the New York Times (2011) multimedia series Lives Restored, The Bipolar Disorder Digital Narrative Medicine Project was developed based on the theoretical foundation of narrative medicine as well as the recovery model. In this project, 5 diverse men and women with bipolar disorder who were treated at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto, Canada were interviewed about their experience of illness by a renowned health reporter and a detailed narrative was then constructed of their life story. Each narrative was accompanied by a 3-5 minute short film that sensitively depicted each person as a unique individual living with dignity despite suffering from a serious mood disorder. The goal of this multimedia project was to facilitate a more personalized and subjective understanding of bipolar disorder and to enhance compassion in the treatment of mental illness.

Workshop Objectives:

Upon completion, session attendees will be able to:

  • Learning Objective 1: Describe how narrative medicine and recovery principles can be effectively applied to film depiction of mental illness.
  • Learning Objective 2: Recognize how narrative and film can be combined together to enhance empathy and compassion in mental health care.
  • Learning Objective 3: Reflect on how to assess impact from educational products whose primary aim is to enhance compassion in mental healthcare.

Family as Faculty: Learning from the lived experience
Although we as healthcare educators have expertise in our professional area of practice, we do not necessarily know what it’s like to be in the shoes of the clients and families that we work with. There is great opportunity to collaborate with clients and families to enable teaching excellence. In this interactive workshop, participants will gain a deeper understanding of the challenges our clients and families face, and the importance of involving families as educators and how incorporating their experience enriches the learning environment. Workshop participants will have an opportunity to reflect on their practice and learn from others.

As a participant, you will:

  • Discuss why and how involving the lived experience enhances teaching
  • Identify challenges, opportunities and supports needed for involving clients and families as educators
  • Develop or modify an action plan for involving clients and families as educators in your work

Caregivers as Educators of Healthcare Professionals
The presentation is primarily based upon a spousal caregiver who provides care to his wife who has young onset dementia. He describes the caregiving journey as “muddling” through. He discusses professional interventions which he found useful and helpful, as the primary caregiver, and which interventions he did not find helpful. His perspective is interesting, thoughtful, insightful and extremely valuable to both spousal caregivers, their families, and to professionals providing caregiving education, support and navigation of the healthcare system, community programs and services.

Priority 2: TEAM-BASED LEARNING

Generation Google: How to survive and thrive in a multi-generational team environment
The workshop is designed to outline generational theory and to describe individual generations that exist within the current healthcare team. The workshop highlights the communication styles of each generation; the misunderstandings that can take place and the opportunities for common ground.

Educational Strategies on Engaging Communication and Conflict Within an Interprofessional Team
Interprofessional conflict is a key competency for both individuals and teams to provide person centred care. Facilitation in conflict competence reinforces that conflict is a natural part of our working life and influences our ability to provide person-centred care. Through the use of interactive discussion, self reflection and video scenarios, participants will be able to reflect on their own ability to engage, facilitate and educate on interprofessional conflict, utilize tools/resources to pro-actively support interprofessional communication and team collaboration.

Participants will:

  • Define conflict and relevance to interprofessional teams;
  • Examine sources of interprofessional conflict and factors that create a climate for conflict competence and psychological safety
  • Assess and reflect on preferred conflict style and responses to IP conflict;
  • Reflect on the role as an educator and facilitator to engage learners and teams in reframing conflict towards interprofessional collaborative care

Priority 3: LEARNER EXPERIENCE AND CULTURE

Effective Communication with the Learner in Difficulty
Clinical teachers are often daunted by the realisation that a learner is in difficulty. Reluctance to offend the learner, frustration with the learner for not meeting responsibilities, and fear of having to justify one's actions can make it challenging to address concerns in a timely, supportive and productive way. There is a need to train faculty to be able to articulate the behaviours that make a resident appear “lazy”, and how to communicate “bad news” (Dudek, 2005). This workshop will introduce three communication techniques to help teachers talk to learners about performance issues, clarify the underlying problem, and begin to negotiate a remediation plan.

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy is a manualised, evidence-based psychotherapy which operationalizes its communication techniques in a concrete, specific way. Transferring strategies from a therapeutic to a teaching context allows teachers to improve the depth, clarity and directness of their communication, and helps counteract the urge to avoid raising difficult topics. The three techniques that this session will focus on are: validation, “both-and” statements, and a structure for difficult conversations.

Keys to a Successful Preceptorship Program: Focusing on our Student Learners and Trainees
This workshop is designed to provide clinicians who practice within a teaching hospital knowledge and skills to support a successful student learning experience. The session will be a combination of didactic and practical learning. The practical component will introduce the participants to the key elements of preceptorship including setting learning expectations, feedback, fostering clinical reasoning, conflict and relationship building. The practical component will consist of small group discussion of teaching cases based on the experience of the faculty and their colleagues. At the end of the session, participants will be able to understand and apply strategies as well as educational concepts supported by tools to become a more effective preceptor as part of their role as a clinician within an academic clinical setting.

Curricular Design and Improvement: A roadmap to strategic curriculum development
Healthcare educators aim at improving the educational experience of their trainees. Curricular changes can contribute to better learner experience by ensuring that the educational strategies, content, experiences, assessment, and outcomes are well aligned. This workshop will discuss theories and practices related to curricular design and improvement, and will propose a stepwise approach to strategic curriculum development. Participants will also have the opportunity to discuss and reflect on how these concepts could apply to their educational environment.
