RSC/RSS FY10 Presentation

  1. 1. Welcome! Regularly Scheduled Series (RSC/RSSs) Updates for FY10 Office of CME Jefferson Medical College 1020 Locust Street, Suite M5 Philadelphia, PA 19107 Phone: 215-955-6992 Fax: 215-923-3212
  2. 2. Overview for Renewing RSC/RSS  Lots of changes this year  Why?  What has changed  What hasn’t changed
  3. 3. Why the changes this year? ACCME Changes = RSC/RSS Changes ACCME expectation that Jefferson transition to Updated Criteria for RSC/RSS Preparation for Reaccreditation Self Study in 2011 Compliance with ACCME Updated Criteria means identifying  Professional performance gaps  Educational need that the performance gap relates to  Desirable physician attributes  Barriers to improvements  Strategies to overcome barriers We tried to provide clear guidance and examples of what is needed, and when possible, included a checklist of options to select from
  4. 4. The Good News…… Applications completed under the new process will be approved through June 2012 with only a few annual tasks such as…. Updates to Planner COI Review of new evaluation data Payment of annual fee **Unless the ACCME makes changes
  5. 5. What changed? Application Content  Emphasis on Practice Gaps  Specifying practice gaps, evidence for them, and what education is needed to address the gaps  Emphasis on Evaluation  Evaluating how the education impacts of physician competence, performance and on patient outcomes  Emphasis on Improvement  Identifying how the RSC/RSS can be changed to improve its impact on competence, performance and/or patient outcomes
  6. 6. What changed? Application and Reporting Logistics  Different information needed compared to prior years  Use of check-off boxes and pull down menus to try and make filling out your application easier  Lots of examples of how to complete your application  Increase use of computerization to streamline processes and respond to physician participants requests  Changes to online Session Registration to automatically generate Session Documentation Form (SDF)  Addition of online Session Documentation Reporting to meet the new ACCME reporting requirements
  7. 7. Content Changes : Role of Learner What does this mean? We outline the 4 basic roles of academic physicians, and identify the primary role for each RSC/RSS to focus the goal of the education more clearly  Learner Roles  Clinician – is the RSC/RSS directed at patient care issues?  Administrator – is the RSC/RSS directed at systems/management issues?  Teacher - is the RSC/RSS directed at teaching issues  Researcher – is the RSC/RSS directed at research issues? On the application: You will select other required application elements based on the primary practice role of the learners for an RSC/RSS.
  8. 8. Content Changes: ID “Professional Practice Gaps” What does this mean? A professional practice gap is the difference between actual and ideal performance.  Professional practice gaps can be found in any role the physician practices in: clinician, educator, researcher, or administrator.  Professional practice gaps are the answer to the question:  what are these participants doing now that they could/should be doing differently or better?  There is a comparison made between what the ideal practice looks like and what the potential participants actually are doing. On the application: You will select general professional practice gaps from a checklist provided, based on the role of the learner
  9. 9. Content Changes: ID Professional Practice Gaps - sample Learners’ Professional Role (C4) Type of RSC/RSS Approach Associated with this Role (C5) Types of Professional Practice Gaps Encountered by these types of Learners in Practice (C2) (check all that apply) Clinician Lectured Based (Grand Rounds) Case Based Journal Club M & M  Problems encountered in practice or identified by the presence of poor or unexpectedly poor patient outcomes  Keeping abreast of new/emerging information and how to incorporate this into practice  Applying evidence based guidelines in practice  Gaps identified via PI/QI processes (must be outlined above) Section 3A Researcher Lecture Based Case Based Journal Club Faculty Development  Problems encountered in design and/or implementation of research project problems encountered in the interpretation and/or publication of research results  Problems encountered in applying basic research to clinical practice  Keeping abreast of new/emerging information and how to incorporate this into practice  Maintenance of Certification
  10. 10. Content Changes: Clinical RSC/RSS tie directly to Institutional Patient Safety/PI/QI If the RSC/RSS is clinically oriented, completing this section will explicitly link education delivered to RSC/RSS session to institutional patient safety and/or performance improvement goals. On the application: Select one of the options outlined  Option 1. Patient Safety related issues  What topics does your Peer Review Physician recommend be included in this activity to improve clinical processes and/or patient outcome in your department?  Option 2. Performance and/or Quality Improvement Process  What quality metrics are in place in your department/division to measure improvements in patient care and/or processes that will be addressed as part of this activity?  Option 3. Other Metrics ex: (HCAHO, HEDIS, PQRI, RPR, CMS)  What other measures for patient care is your department working on that will be addressed as part of this activity? Always applies to RSC/RSS that address learner role of clinician.
  11. 11. Content Changes : Practice Gaps and Educational Needs  Identifying Underlying Educational Needs Related to Identified Practice Performance Gap  A good needs assessment provides evidence that the professional practice gap exists, and that an educational activity can help close the identified gap and facilitate a change in practice. It answers the question:  How do you know the practicing physicians and other learners in your audience need education in the topics you will present during this activity? On the application:  You will complete a chart showing where your evidence is drawn from, the conclusions that you have made based on this evidence, and what the education you are presenting is intended to accomplish.  We anticipate this section will present the most difficulty for applicants to complete. We encourage you to contact the Office of CME to discuss your questions, concerns or thoughts about this section in particular.
  12. 12. Content Changes: Evidence - Example  The application will offer a number of options for you to select from, and allows for your additions. For each type of source you identify, you will be asked to identify the specific source used, explain what the source tells you about your learner and draw a conclusion about the needed education for the source. If you cannot provide documentation, you should NOT check a source. Note that you are required to utilize at least 2 sources for your RSC/RSS. √ Source of Need for each area checked, complete the statement: a. Identify the specific source (s) you are using for this activity b. This source shows that learners at our RSC/RSS need to c. Therefore, education is needed to SAMPLE: Advice from authorities of the field or relevant medical societies Clinical Guidelines from ASA published in the past two years Comply with new guidelines for this timely administration of preoperative antibiotics Make sure everyone is aware of the new guidelines and how to apply them SAMPLE: Data from peer- reviewed journals, government sources, consensus reports Pertinent articles from (specify journals/other sources Keep up-to-date as new information becomes available in their field of practice Identify new information that is pertinent to practice and incorporate this information into practice appropriately
  13. 13. Content Changes : Desirable Physician Attributes  Education Designed in the Presence of Desirable Physician Attributes  The ACCME requires that each CME activity is developed “in the context of desirable physician attributes (e.g., IOM competencies, ACGME Competencies)”  Therefore, each Jefferson CME activity must be related to at least one of the ACGME or Institute of Medicine (IOM) competencies. On the application:  A checklist of the competencies will be provided in the application.  Check off the relevant competencies and explain how your activity supports the development/maintenance/expansion of that competency in your learners.
  14. 14. Content Changes : Evaluating Your Results Tie in to prior year evaluation results (for repeating RSC/RSS)  If you are renewing an RSC/RSS, you will review the past year’s evaluation results which will be automatically included in your application. You will also be provided with the aggregated data for ALL Jefferson RSC/RSS so you can compare your results to these average responses.  You will be asked to outline a plan for improvement if your evaluation results indicate a need for improvement. On the application: My FY09 Annual Evaluation Scores for the following items for example were: Key Indicator (scale 1-5, 5 being highest) Extent to which RSC/RSS…. Aggregated Results from ALL Jefferson RSC/RSS Results for my RSC/RSS in FY09 Plan for improvement (or indicate NA) Overall Quality 4.39 3.73 Presented content relative to level of expertise 4.33 3.89 Promoted change in competence (what you can do) 4.06 3.40
  15. 15. Annual Evaluations  OCME will provide access to online evaluation for all RSC/RSS
  16. 16. What else changed? Session Registration and Reporting Logistics  Changes to online session registration to automatically generate SDF  Addition of online session documentation reporting to meet new ACCME reporting requirements
  17. 17. Logistics Changes : Session Registration  We’ve added  Topic  For grand rounds, focused case discussions, journal clubs and similar types of RSC/RSS, you now need to include the topic presented for each session  Create an SDF from the Session Registration Database.  Convenient, automatic creation of SDF On the application: Once you have put in the date, topic, speaker, you click on the SDF button for the date and a completed SDF will be created, ready for posting!
  18. 18. Logistics Changes : Session Reporting NEW ACCME has announced new reporting requirements.  This section helps collect and compile the required information  Commercial support type, sources and amounts  Category of impact of education  Session patient safety status  *same categories as prior years  We will have to upload selected information to the ACCME On the application: From the Session Registration Database, click on the “session reporting link” found in the center of the page. Complete the required items,then send your SDF to the OCME.
