Healthcare-PlexusCall-Health Professions Education-Training Practice Ready Clinicians
Healthcare is becoming more complex. Many health professions students are learning in linear environments influenced by measurement and finance that value individual knowledge and exceptionalism. Dr. Ankel and many colleagues believe the day of the autonomous physician is over. Upon graduation, these newly minted professionals are expected to thrive in non-linear environments that value improvement science, patient and family centered care, resource stewardship, and teaming behaviors. How do we design the health professions learning systems of tomorrow? How do we facilitate systems thinking to shape these environments?
Our guests will talk about their own work in learning system design that facilitates the IHI Triple Aim, and teaming behavior. Dr. Ankel will describe 10 program milestones to help learning systems maximize resilience, the ability to manage complexity, and the ability to manage context. Ms. Noltimier will describe her journey in creating a health system program to train nurse practitioners and physician assistants.
Felix Ankel, MD is the Vice President for health professional education at HealthPartners in Bloomington, MN.
