For the staff

2. Presentation Guidelines
- Meeting time is 60 minutes. This time will be divided, roughly, between the # of presenters.
- The student will be given approximately 5 minutes to present their patient. Discussion to follow.
- The patient must be part of the students' rotation service.
- It is preferred that the student has interacted with the patient, but this is not mandatory.
- "Mini-Soap" (Outpatient Style)
- The student should work-up the patient using the SOAP process and then condense down the presentation to the recommended 5-minute time allotment.
- The student should present the basic patient information along with a complete problem list and then focus on a particular aspect of the care. Only subjective and objective information relevant to the selected problem should be presented.
- The entire medication regimen should be listed.
- Assessment of the selected therapies and/or recommendations for changes should be briefly stated.
- The goal is total group participation in reviewing the patients care. All questions, comments and concerns are encouraged.
- The student is expected to have both a global view of the care plan and a more detailed knowledge of the drug therapy (i.e. MOA, SE, rationale for use, monitoring perameters).
- To assist the student in their learning process the standard UW presentation review forms will be distributed and may be completed by attendees as desired.
- Facilitates meeting, encourages discussion, selects order of presenters
