July 30, 2020 Assessment in medical education is targeted to individuals. But practice is collaborative, involving teams of individuals working together. This reality creates a dilemma for assessment: how can the interdependence of individuals' clinical work be understood in a way that enables meaningful assessment of collaborative practice?
Dr. Lorelei Lingard's groundbreaking work in this domain has received an important funding boost. Dr. Lingard, CERI's Senior Scientist, has been awarded $149,999 over two years from the Stemmler Medical Education Research Fund, which supports work in the domain of medical education assessment. In collaboration with Dr. Stefanie Sebok-Syer, Instructor in the Department of Emergency Medicine at Stanford University School of Medicine, Dr. Lingard's project - “Conceptualizing and Assessing Interdependent Performance in Collaborative Clinical Environments” - will push the boundaries of current assessment strategies. Dr. Sebok-Syer is no strnager to CERI either, having done her postdoctoral fellowship training at CERI under Dr. Lingard's supervision. This forward-thinking work has the potential to change how we conceptualize clinical performance, and how we approach its assessment.
July 30, 2020 His team, that includes Drs. Sayra Cristancho (CERI/DOS), Sandy DeLuca (CERI/Fanshawe Nursing), Mike Ott (DOS), Erin Spicer(DOS) and PhD(c) Alena Tarasevich received a grant ranking of 4/68. Together, they will be exploring how similar teams configure their practices differently to achieve educational and clinical priorities. By focusing on Time-Space as a unit of analysis, they hope to uncover differences in practice configurations that can lead to meaningful debate around how we use time and space and the challenges faced by teams as they navigate academic practice and the, at times, inherent tensions that arise between clinical practice and education. The study, which will take place over 2 years, will include both surgical and medical contexts so as to seek opportunities for learning from each other.
