Profile Rotation description Rotation expectations and requirements Calendar Pre-APPE Questionnaire Supporting documents Assigned readings Rubrics Etc. 10 Rotation Description: Match Student Interest with Rotation Patient population description Hours of attendance Typical daily activities Homework Presentation requirements 11
Pre-APPE Documents Introductory document that describes your expectations and requirements General calendar Pre-APPE questionnaire Required readings or other material 12 Know What Experiences You Can Offer Establish site specific activities that are examples of elements on TSBP evaluation and FSOP grade sheet 13 Group Work (5 10 mins) Use APPE syllabus to write specific examples of activities that will meet TSBP elements Consider what performance would be Minimum competency: all students should perform by end of rotation Average: most students should perform by end of rotation
High-performance: above average students activities for those that exceed your expectations 14 Discussion (10 mins) MONITORS AND EVALUATES DRUG THERAPY: INITIAL AND ONGOING Establishes and interprets data bases Includes active problems, PMH, pertinent PE, lab data and hospital course in data base Performs and completes patient medication history Completes and updates medication profiles Determines pharmacokinetic parameters Uses sunrise (electronic medical record) to identify pertinent labs and exams in results tab and vitals in flowsheet tab Uses sunrise antimicrobial filter to determine current antibiotic duration when treating infections Able to list current problems for de-novo transplant recipients that includes transplant, current inpatient problems, and comorbidities to help assess patients readiness for discharge Performs medication reconciliation on all de-novo transplant recipients Updates MedActionPlan and preceptor checks without requiring major intervention Recommends vancomycin dosing based on trough levels 15
Day 1 Orientation Have a checklist! Go over all the rules Attendance, dress-code, professionalism Review activities that will meet elements Review TSBP grading criteria Explain end-of-day, end-of-week expectations Find out students specific goals If none, then identifying goals should be an objective on mid-point evaluation 16 The Importance of the Mid-Point If they are documenting in RxPreceptor, then they should know how they are performing Identify areas not successfully passing Set-up goals for remaining three weeks 17
The Under-Achiever: Prevent the Difficult Learning Situation Primary Prevention: clearly communicate expectations Pre-APPE documents and day 1 orientation School expectations: syllabus/grade sheet, TSBP evaluation, grading criteria Your expectations: attendance, dress-code, professionalism, daily activities Student expectations: pre-APPE questionnaire Mid-point evaluation to re-assess and refine goals and expectations What goals do you have for the remaining 3 weeks of the rotation? JP Langlois, S Thach. Fam Med. 2000;32(4):232-4. 18 The Under-Achiever: Prevent the Difficult Learning Situation Secondary prevention (early detection and intervention is essential) Pay attention to your intuition Do not dismiss, downplay, or attribute as a a bad day
Do not wait to discuss with student Give specific feedback early and monitor closely Student and preceptor should be documenting activities on a daily basis Tertiary prevention Communicate quickly and often with FSOP experiential department Student and preceptor documentation should help with accurate evaluation of student JP Langlois, S Thach. Fam Med. 2000;32(4):232-4. 19 The Under-Achiever: Manage the Difficult Learning Situation Think of using SOAP format Subjective Chief-complaint and HPI Clearly state what you have noticed Ask what other staff have noticed Establish pattern of behavior
Objective Document evidence! JP Langlois, S Thach. Fam Med. 2000;32(5):307-309. 20 The Under-Achiever: Manage the Difficult Learning Situation Assessment Cognitive Valuative Limited knowledge base Learning disabilities Lack of effort Affective Learner anxiety or stress Fear or anger
Medical Comorbidity that affects performance (anxiety, depression, acute or mental illness, substance abuse) Expects certain level of work Expects certain grade Does not value rotation Does not want to be at your site Does not value your teaching Principles conflict with you or patient Environmental Inexperienced with your area of pharmacy
Not time sensitive Not patient-satisfaction oriented JP Langlois, S Thach. Fam Med. 2000;32(5):307-309. 21 The Under-Achiever: Manage the Difficult Learning Situation Plan Discuss with student your assessment Gather information as to why the problem is occurring Identify strategies to improve student performance Identify monitoring plan for follow-up Document student performance after intervention
JP Langlois, S Thach. Fam Med. 2000;32(5):307-309. 22 Provide Effective Feedback Ongoing process Nonjudgmental information to help student build on foundation of skills and behaviors Should be frequent, face-to-face, and brief (small doses) Environment: neutral, private setting Timing: as soon as possible after the interaction Interaction can be brief and specific ST Wilkinson, R Couldry, H Phillips et al. Hosp Pharm. 2013;48(1):26-32 23 Feedback: Elaborative Approach Encourages student to engage and reflect upon their performance Requires dialogue between preceptor and student and focuses on self-assessment and reflection Creates atmosphere of trust
Be specific when addressing both positive and negative performance Standard Elaborative Approach Feedback Questions How do you think the interaction went as a whole? What do you think went well? What are your areas for improvement? What do you think I did well? What could I have done differently to improve or enhance your learning experience? ST Wilkinson, R Couldry, H Phillips et al. Hosp Pharm. 2013;48(1):26-32 24 Challenges for Effective Feedback Interpersonal factors between student and preceptor Have to provide negative feedback Use feedback sandwich Positive comment, negative comment, positive comment Provide suggestion on how to improve instead of just stating what was wrong Similar to conflict resolution skills ST Wilkinson, R Couldry, H Phillips et al. Hosp Pharm. 2013;48(1):26-32 A Dohrenwend. Fam Pract Management. Nov/Dec 2002. Available at: www.aafp.org/fpm. Accessed on: 10/10/16
25 Conflict Resolution Listen Give clear feedback Document Write down the key points and details Be consistent Set consequences Adhere to FSOPs process Manage your self-talk Be courageous E Anderson. Ways to deal with difficult employees. Available at: http://www.forbes.com; Accessed on 10/10/16. 26 Student Cases (5 10 mins) Discuss each case in your group Answer the questions Add your own experiences and thoughts
27 The Over-Achiever What is your definition of an over-achiever? Student goals important Think outside the box for extra projects that will enhance student experience Clinical rotation present topic to the team, nurse education, participate in DUE, submit patient case as abstract to a meeting Community practice OTC counseling, HTN monitoring, topic presentation to staff, participate in community education presentation 28 Conclusions To improve efficiency as a preceptor Organizing your rotation at the beginning of the academic year Student involvement in documenting competency achievement
Improving student performance Immediate discussion with the student Practice listening and communication skills Develop plan for improvement with monitoring Enhancing the rotation for high-performing students Identify the students goals Have list of high-performing activities ready to go 29 References for Pharmacists LM Cuellar, DB Ginsburg.
