  • Harold Schlosberg Colloquium Download Harold Schlosberg Colloquium to my desktop calendar

    May 4, 2016 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM Speaker: Henry M. Wellman, University of Michigan. Title: Learning a Theory of Mind. Abstract: I will argue that “theory of mind” is a developmental achievement. It is minimally scaffolded by several infant proclivities but beyond that must be learned. How so? By children constructing new and later understandings off a platform of their earlier ones. This is a basic, constructivist proposal, all the way back to Piaget, but it is a contentious theoretical one—denied by nativists and empiricists alike. Moreover, empirically, direct evidence for this proposal is in surprisingly short supply, if the focus is sustained, everyday development of major conceptual systems. Research on theory of mind, coupled with contemporary demonstrations from hierarchical Bayesian computational learning, provide the needed evidence and theory. I will overview our data on learning a theory of mind in childhood to show that these data clearly manifest three empirical signatures of such a process of constructivist conceptual development: (1) learning proceeds in orderly conceptual progressions. (2) Sequences and timetables are experience-dependent. And (3) prior conceptual knowledge influences the presence and amount of learning. More intriguingly, perhaps, I will cover studies that provide cross-cultural data, data from typically developing children but also those with developmental delay, experimental micro-genetic research, and more. brown.edu/Departments/CLPS/events Metcalf Research Building, Room 101, Friedman Auditorium Colloquia, Open to the Public, Dept: CLPS, First Years, Sophomores, Juniors, Seniors, For Masters candidates only, For PhD candidates only, Audience, Brain Science Program, Biology and Medicine, Lectures, Conferences, and Meetings, Faculty, Staff, Departments

  • Current Medical and Surgical Management of Thyroid Disease Download Current Medical and Surgical Management of Thyroid Disease to my desktop calendar

    May 14, 2016 8:30 AM - 12:00 PM Program Description Thyroid disease contributes to a significant amount of primary care office visits annually. Thyroid nodules, hyperthyroidism, symptomatic goiters, and thyroid cancers are conditions seen daily in a busy primary care practice. In addition, many thyroid problems are picked up incidentally on physical exam, unrelated imaging, or routine blood work. Work up, diagnosis, and treatment of these conditions, once identified, can be complex. Improving the thyroid knowledge base of practitioners will facilitate the successful identification and management of these conditions. This CME Thyroid Course will focus on six major topics: 1) workup of a thyroid nodule, 2) thyroid imaging and needle biopsy, 3) pathologic interpretation of biopsy results, 4) management of hyperthyroidism, 5) indications and use of radioiodine therapy, and 6) surgical indications and procedures for benign and malignant diseases of the thyroid. Subspecialists from the Department of Surgery at Brown University and its allied departments of Endocrinology, Pathology, and Radiology will address these topics in a format comprised of short presentations, panel discussions, and question and answer sessions. Target Audience Physicians specializing in adult primary care, internal medicine, surgery, or women’s health. Physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and nurses are also welcome. Learning Objectives At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to: • Describe the appropriate workup of a thyroid nodule (history, exam, imaging, and biopsy) • Identify the basics of thyroid imaging • Recognize the basics of thyroid biopsy (indications, technique, and interpretation) • Identify the surgical indications and procedures for benign and malignant thyroid disease • Describe postoperative thyroid cancer therapy and surveillance CME Accreditation This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University and University Surgical Associates.

  • “Failure to Fail” and the Social Contract: A Medical Education Dilemma Download “Failure to Fail” and the Social Contract: A Medical Education Dilemma to my desktop calendar

    May 17, 2016 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM 5:00–5:30 pm Registration and Refreshments 5:30–7:00 pm Workshop Emily P. Green, MA Director, Student & Faculty Development | Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University Program Description: The “failure to fail” literature documents the barriers faced by medical educators to accurate assessment and grading of learners who are not meeting behavioral or academic standards. These barriers include fear of legal repercussion, the emotional toll of confrontation, damaged relationships with learners, feelings of personal responsibility for failures, reluctance to incur increased workload, lack of appropriate means of documentation, lack of appropriate options for remediation, and student debt-load. Yet health-profession educators are also acutely aware of their role as gate-keepers of their professions, and their “social contract” with the public to train and graduate excellent health care providers. This session will review the literature regarding barriers to the evaluation of medical students and residents, and explicate the dilemmas faced by educators whose responsibilities include both learners and patients. Together we will create a framework by which medical educators can begin to address these dilemmas. Participants will be asked to think critically about their responsibilities to learners, to the profession, and to society. This session will demonstrate the application of learning principles and will focus on the Core area of Evaluation and Feedback. Learning Objectives: 1. Identify common barriers to the accurate evaluation and grading of under-performing learners 2. Analyze the dilemmas inherent in the accurate evaluation and grading of under-performing learners 3. Clarify and explicate personal responsibilities to learners, the medical profession, and to society Accreditation The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

This is true both from an internal need to improve and manage outcomes as well as an increasing external requirement for accurate stakeholder data from both payers and public health advocates. This session will begin by providing an overview of the lifecycle of clinical data from collection through to substantive impact. We will then drill down into the sub-components of the cycle with a particular focus on examples related to colorectal cancer and hypertension and how to optimize the associated clinical workflows and data reporting methodologies. Identified leading practices will be shared with the audience. Target Audience Data Managers, Nurse Case Managers, Quality Improvement Staff and other Team Members. Educational Objectives At the conclusion of this session, attendees should be able to: 1. Explain the value of data integrity and standardized workflows 2. Cite examples of best practices around clinical workflow and data integration 3. Identify opportunities for incorporating best practices into day-to-day operations 4.
