Prepare to ADAPT for the Learner Empowers learners to ask for feedback with an easy-to-use feedback framework. Learners first identify their coaches—attendings, peers, or other individuals in their learning environments—share the feedback framework with them, and then capture the most salient feedback points for next steps. The online portion takes less than five minutes to complete; at the end of the module, learners are directed to the ADAPT Feedback Tool to capture of the most useful suggestions. Three repetitions of the feedback process in the clinical learning environment is recommended. Tyra Fainstad, MD

Inpatient Admission vs Outpatient Observation UW Medicine is increasingly in the position to defend its documentation and has had to repay millions of dollars of inpatient claims, because of medical necessity-related concerns. All UW Medicine physicians who admit patients into the hospital will find this module helpful in bolstering our collective effort to improve documentation and reduce the volume of repayment requests.

Opioid Management for Acute Pain Opioid safety is a growing concern in medicine. Opioid analgesics rank among the drugs most frequently associated with adverse drug events. Some causes for adverse events associated with opioid use are lack of knowledge about differences among opioids, improper prescribing and administration of multiple opioids and modes of administration and inadequate monitoring of patients on opioids.
This module is aimed at helping promote opioid safety through a series of scenarios that take the learner through the opioid management process, exposing the learners to best practices for opioid prescribing for adult acute pain patients in the hospital setting.

Patient Safety & Transitions of Care This module addresses critical issues of patient safety and transitions of care, by asking learners to make decisions about realistic in-patient cases. It also includes a brief simulation of how to submit a PSN (Patient Safety Net) report, in an effort to help break down the barriers around report submission by residents and fellows.

In addition, the I-PASS Handoff System (Illness severity, Patient summary, Action list, Situation awareness and contingency planning, Synthesis by receiver) is described in detail, and its use is strongly recommended.

Problem List – PSIP (Patient Safety and Innovation Project) The Problem List Manager is a feature in ORCA. Designed by residents, for the residents. A problem list is meant to be a comprehensive overview of all the medical issues a patient has experienced. Though it may overlap with diagnoses associated with this current inpatient stay, the problem list includes medical issues that may extend beyond any one hospitalization. The module covers details on what you should to enter in the problem list, and where to find it in the patient’s Chart Summary Page. Go to module

Physician Well-Being The traditional battle-hardening culture of medical education is ineffective and harmful to learners and faculty alike. Nearly 60% of UW GME residents surveyed in March 2018 were burned out. The much needed culture shift in our institutions can begin with physicians practicing the skills of identifying and sharing your concerns, being supportive of your colleagues, and taking small concrete steps towards personal resilience. This module offers you realistic scenarios, relevant self-assessment, and links to additional tools and resources. Rosemary Adamson, MB BS
