    from Center Global Brand Leadership Added 31 0 0

    At the BRITE '13 conference, Sree Sreenivasan, Chief Digital Officer at Columbia University, talks about the fact that higher education is going through what countless business giants have learned; disruptive new technologies can radically transform an industry overnight. A new wave of startups is rethinking the entire concept of learning, from the Khan Academy’s global tutoring, to the explosion of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). The question is, what should the future of higher education look like? The BRITE conference on brands, innovation and technology is hosted by the Center on Global Brand Leadership at Columbia Business School. (http://briteconference.com | http://globalbrands.org)

                      from cmedundee Added 181 1 0

                      Abstract: The research evidence tells us that there is a crisis in medical education – not in the technical realm of medicine, but in the ‘non-technical’ domains of communication and teamwork, revealed largely through studies of medical error. Rates of medical error remain unacceptably high – in the UK, at the highest estimate, the third leading cause of death after cardiovascular disease and cancer, with an estimated 40-72,000 deaths per annum. Multiple studies show that 70% of medical errors are grounded in systems-based miscommunications, where the basic system is the clinical team. Within- and cross-team communication can be improved by team practices such as briefing and debriefing, but these are rarely formally taught in undergraduate or continuing education. While communication with colleagues is relatively poor and not improving, communication with patients mirrors this. Where 15% of medical error is due to misdiagnoses, 90% of the diagnosis can be found in the patient’s story, listened to closely. However, doctors interrupt patients on average within 18 seconds and overestimate the amount of time that patients talk in the consultation, while a persistent related symptom is ‘empathy decline’ amongst medical students. There is a growing sense that how communication is taught in undergraduate medical education is misguided, with increasing emphasis upon learning through simulation and instrumental protocols. However, the malaise goes wider and deeper than this. Medical culture is traditionally focused on the individual at the expense of collaboration, and is historically grounded in autocracy rather than democracy. It is in learning democratic habits and literacy that medical culture may be changed through medical education. This talk will suggest ways in which this transition may be achieved. Biography: Alan Bleakley is Professor of Medical Education at Peninsula Medical School, UK, where he is Deputy Director of the Institute of Clinical Education, internationally recognized as a leading medical education academic and research centre. He initially studied zoology and physiology and biochemistry, but switched to psychology, where his interests in brain science soon faded to be replaced by a passion for a more arts and humanities based psychology. He trained as a psychotherapist, obtaining a DPhil from Sussex University, and practiced for over 25 years, also running qualifying courses in psychotherapy for the University of Exeter, and education in communication for GPs and other health practitioners. He also taught psychodynamic therapies on a doctoral qualifying course for clinical psychologists also at the University of Exeter. Alan came into medical education some years ago, where he has become a leading international figure, especially in the field of theory. He is widely published, his latest book is ‘Medical Education for the Future: Identity, Power and Location’ (Springer 2011) written with John Bligh and Julie Browne. He is active in curriculum development, and research in medical education, the medical humanities, and teamwork in operating theatres. A book on communication, ‘The Heart of the Matter: Patient-Centredeness in Transition’, is currently in review with Springer.
