Arlene M. Davis, JD, RN of the UNC-Chapel Hill School of Medicine and Department of Social Medicine was awarded one of the 2017-18 AHEC Campus Innovation Grants. Her project titled “Using Simulation to Assess Ethical Skills in the Context of ACGME Residency Milestones” will be drawing from our different areas of expertise to develop and test a model of simulation that permits pediatric residents to demonstrate, and preceptors to evaluate, competencies in ethical practice as prescribed by the professionalism milestones.
The team’s ultimate product will be an ethics simulation module containing cases, assessment forms, and an instruction guide. This ethics module will be translatable to other residency groups beyond pediatrics. This module will be available to AHEC faculty throughout North Carolina.
The project team consists of Jean Cadigan, PhD; UNC-Chapel Hill School of Medicine; Dept. of Social Medicine; Benny L. Joyner, Jr., MD, MPH; UNC-Chapel Hill School of Medicine; Dept. of Pediatrics; Kimberly Blasius, MD; UNC-Chapel Hill School of Medicine; Dept. of Anesthesiology; Melissa Smith, MD; UNC-Chapel Hill School of Medicine; Dept. of Pediatrics; and Gene Hobbs, BS, CHSE; UNC-Chapel School of Medicine; Dept. of Pediatrics.
