Save the Date: Bedside Manners

You are invited to attend this informative and entertaining presentation highlighting physician-nurse relationships. This presentation is part of a physician-nurse collaborative team’s work to improve communication. I hope you will attend on one of the dates. It should be fun to see your colleagues in the role of actors!

Play and Workshop, By Suzanne Gordon
February 14th, 2011 8:00am - 12:00 PM or March 7th, 2011 3:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Froedtert Hospital, Helfaer Auditorium

One of the least discussed and most important components of both patient safety and retention and recruitment is the nurse-doctor relationship. Insights and strategies into effective teamwork will help Nurses and Doctors replace the parallel play among intimate strangers that now characterizes the hospital and health care workplace. Froedtert Staff RNs and MCW Residents will also be acting in a play written by Suzanne titled Bedside Manners.

Infectious Disease Cookie Contest

The Infectious Disease Clinic held a cookie contest in clinic yesterday with an unprecedented 18 entries. Organized by Dr. Iram Nadeem, the entry rules were simple: Nothing store bought/Creative/Enough to Share.

As you can see the esteemed judges of Drs. Travis, Mac Kinney, Frank and Curley took their job seriously. The judge’s findings are posted on the ID clinic workroom door.

The winner was Dr. Andrew Petroll. His submission included violets flown in from France that were candied and incorporated in to the actual cookie.

Submitted by Julie Raaum who said, “For me, the only thing better than liking to go to work is really liking who you work with…”

International Conference on Communication in Healthcare

This is an alert for the upcoming International Conference on Communication in Healthcare, the combined meeting of the American Academy on Communication Healthcare (what used to be the American Academy on Physician and Patient, and before that a Task Force within SGIM) and the European Academy on Communication and Healthcare. Abstract submissions are free.

ICCH is a great experience, and will include state of the art presentations on communication, the patient perspective, organizational and interprofessional communication, handoffs, and medical education. MCW doesn’t have a big AACH presence – the only physician members are me, Mary Ann Gilligan, and Wendy Peltier – but AACH is a very important player on the international stage. In particular I would encourage you to attend if you are part of one of MCW’s many isolated groups working on communication. Nationally speaking, this field has come a long way from the self-developed projects of the 1980s.
 

There will probably be about 250-350 registrants, which makes a nice change from the huge SGIM meetings.

Also please be aware that there are substantial registration discounts for trainees.
