CME Certification

CME Certification Provided by the Center for Continuing Education Tulane University Health Sciences Center

Accreditation

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint providership of Tulane University Health Sciences Center and the Southern Regional Meeting. Tulane University Health Sciences Center is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Designation

Tulane University Health Sciences Center designates this live activity for a maximum of 18.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Tulane University Health Sciences Center and the Southern Regional Meeting present this activity for educational purposes only and do not endorse any product, content of presentation or exhibit. Participants are expected to utilize their own expertise and judgment while engaged in the practice of medicine. The content of the presentations is provided solely by presenters who have been selected because of their recognized expertise.

Overview

The Southern Regional Meeting provides the platform and forum for collaborative interdisciplinary research and clinical applications. Physicians and healthcare professionals will examine the most recent research findings in the medicine to determine and inform future research projects based on the analysis of the emerging research as well as to determine applications for clinical practice. The process of submission, presenting, defending and being open to collaborative interaction among peers is a very important part of training in academic medicine.

Statement of Need

Physicians and clinical researchers need to increase their competency in developing strategies in providing patient care improvements. Investigators require a supportive forum for presenting their research. Senior investigators need to increase their competence in identifying mentees and increase their performance in mentoring junior investigators through the process of designing research that is relevant to understanding disease mechanisms and improved patient care.

Goal

The purpose of the Southern Regional Meetings are to foster research among senior and young investigators and provide a forum in which this research can be successfully submitted, discussed, debated and improved with respectful interactions with both peers and mentors. The Southern Regional Meetings bring together researchers, clinicians and students to review the current research and its impact on the future of medical care.

Educational Objectives

After participating in this educational activity, the participant should be better able to:

  • Identify two biological and two behavioral factors contributing to the depression-diabetes association.

  • Articulate three ways to assess neuroendocrine activity in population-based studies.

  • Discuss new developments in pathophysiology of human disease with colleagues.

  • Identify the trends in the developing guidelines and evidence-based state of the art in the specialties which may affect practice management and patient treatment decisions.

  • Identify new areas of investigation which will inform research and improve patient care.

  • Discuss the future development possible from current research trends.

  • Assess research trends as they relate to the mentoring process and collaboration with colleagues and junior investigators.

Predicted Outcomes

Predicted Changes in Practice as a result of this activity may include:

  • Distinguish biological and behavioral factors contributing to the depression-diabetes association.

  • Determine which strategies are appropriate for incorporation into clinical practice.

  • Conduct a research assessment to determine if any of the strategies and trends could be extended and/or improved by further research and/or collaborative projects.

  • Engage in the mentoring process for young investigators.

  • Identify a possible collaborator (mentor or mentee) for research advancement.

MANUSCRIPT PREPARATION AND PEER-REVIEWED PUBLICATION

Workshop Leader: Thomas R. Welch, Associate Editor, Journal of Pediatrics, SUNY Upstate Medical University

This workshop will address multiple aspects of publication in scientific journals. Presenter will discuss preparation of materials, including the initial decision that the data are sufficient to justify publication. Issues related to manuscript writing will include length, focus, adherence to journal formats, and referencing. The editorial process from submission to publication will be described in-depth with particular attention to ways in which authors can interact with journal editors. Another section will cover ethical issues in publication including review boards, authorship, duplicate publication, intellectual property rights, and conflict of interest. There will be open discussion of sample cases and questions derived from the experiences of the participants. Participants are welcome to join the session late if their travel arrangements do not accommodate the 12:00 PM start.

MOVING YOUR CLINICAL CASE PRESENTATION INTO A PUBLISHED MANUSCRIPT

Workshop Leaders: Cherry Wongtrakool and Kathy Monroe

Target Audience: Students, residents, fellows, and faculty

Objective: Learn practical techniques to convert a clinical case presentation into a manuscript for submission to a journal

Description: In this workshop, attendees will learn about the different types of clinical case/case report manuscripts and how to convert a clinical case presentation into a manuscript ready for journal submission. One outstanding adult and outstanding pediatric clinical case submitted to SRM 2016 has been chosen as examples, and the audience will get to follow each of the necessary steps between presentation and manuscript submission. The editor of the Journal of Investigative Medicine-High Impact Case Reports will give the lecture "Straight from the Editor: How to Make Your Clinical Case Manuscript Outstanding". The audience will also learn about different opportunities to publish their clinical cases/case reports to develop scholarly activity.

All presenters in the adult and pediatric clinic case sessions will join this workshop upon conclusion of their clinical case session.

CONFLICT RESOLUTION: LESSONS FROM BUSINESS, DIPLOMACY, AND THEATRE

Adam D. Wolfe, Baylor College of Medicine and Children's Hospital of San Antonio

Sarah F. Denniston, Baylor College of Medicine and Children's Hospital of San Antonio

Disagreement and conflict are inevitable among members of clinical teams, and with patients and families during the course of care for pediatric patients. The workshop will immerse participants in lessons learned from the business world, emphasizing team dynamics, establishing priorities at times of disagreement, and a structured, hierarchical approach to conflict resolution that preserves interpersonal relationships. Participants in the workshop will engage in small group negotiations and case-based discussions of disagreement in clinical settings. This workshop is designed to help learners develop their conflict resolution skills and, additionally, to provide tools for faculty members and educators to bring back to learners at their own institutions.

10:30 AM – 12:00 PM

HOW TO DESIGN AND GIVE A WORKSHOP

Carla Falco, Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children's Hospital

Melissa Chladek, Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children's Hospital

Planning and executing an exciting and effective workshop need not be daunting. This face-paced workshop will go over the nuts and bolts of creating a workshop, including: writing strong goals and objectives, creating a lesson plan that keeps everyone engaged, and incorporating enjoyable active learning activities. Participants will write their own goals and objectives for a workshop of their choice with feedback and guidance from experienced facilitators. Active learning activities and resources for later use will ensure that participants will gain confidence and skills in workshop development.
