    Title Coming of Age with Sickle Cell Disease and the Role of Patient As Teacher.
    Date January 2011
    Journal Journal of the National Medical Association

    Patients with chronic conditions are encouraged to optimize their health care experience by educating themselves regarding their condition and care. This study sought to explore the ways in which adolescents and young adults with sickle cell disease (SCD) educate others about their condition and the meanings they give to their experiences with health care professionals.

    Title Use of Simulated Electronic Mail (e-mail) to Assess Medical Student Knowledge, Professionalism, and Communication Skills.
    Date November 2010
    Journal Academic Medicine : Journal of the Association of American Medical Colleges

    Physicians communicate with patients using electronic mail (e-mail) with increasing frequency. Communication skills specific to e-mail do not appear to be taught explicitly in medical school. Therefore, the effect of an instructive session on effective e-mail communication was examined.

    Title Lessons Learned from Community Site Administrators Involved in Pediatric Community Rotations.
    Date February 2004
    Journal Ambulatory Pediatrics : the Official Journal of the Ambulatory Pediatric Association

    OBJECTIVE: Prominent pediatric organizations agree that young physicians need to be trained for the role of patient advocate in the community. However, information on the community site administrators' perspective on such training is limited. Therefore, the objective of this study was to explore community site administrators' perceptions of the advantages and disadvantages to pediatric resident training at their centers. Understanding these perspectives may lead to better partnerships and experiences for both the residents and the community sites. METHODS: Twenty-eight community site administrators participating in 2 residency community rotations located in Ohio and Florida were surveyed with a semistructured questionnaire. A qualitative data analysis methodology was used to explore the entire set of responses. Research team members reviewed the responses, coded them for emerging themes, and generated three themes: 1) awareness, 2) knowledge exchange, and 3) organizational issues. RESULTS: Fifty-seven percent of site administrators responded. These administrators consistently indicated that they valued the opportunity to increase residents' awareness of the services their sites provided to the community. The administrators and families served by the agencies appeared to benefit from the medical knowledge exchange, and this was a significant advantage from the community site administrators' perspective. Finally, community sites identified organizational issues of complex scheduling as an area for improvement. CONCLUSIONS: These findings demonstrate the value community sites place on active, early involvement of pediatric residents with community agencies. We have also identified key points to improve the experiences for both community sites and residents during a community pediatric rotation.
