38 episodes

A podcast focusing on shifting the way we think and talk about diversity, equity, and inclusion in the medical field. The title, The DEI Shift, uses a common acronym DEI (standing for diversity, equity, and inclusion) as a play on the idea of a “day shift”, the time in the hospital when the daytime teams come in, bring fresh perspectives to the issues that arose overnight, and progress patient care forward. This podcast is aimed at: 1) bringing new perspectives and a more inclusive approach to the discussions of diversity issues in healthcare, 2) shifting us away from avoidance, fatigue, and negative connotations that have become attached to these topics, and 3) transitioning these discussions from mere classroom didactics into relevant, day-to-day, organic conversation and application.

    Pediatric-to-Adult Transitions of Care

    Pediatric-to-Adult Transitions of Care

    Transitions between pediatric and adult healthcare models can be one of the most trying and health-destabilizing things a young person and their caregivers experience. Healthcare professionals on both the sending and receiving ends of this transition need training in how to facilitate successful transitions. Resources like medical society recommendations and GotTransition.org can help, but there are many challenges to successful transition of which healthcare teams must be aware in order to assist their patients through the process.

    Learning Objectives:
    Define Healthcare Transitions. Describe two barriers that patients and families face in transitioning to an adult-centered model of care.Describe two barriers that healthcare professionals face in comprehensive transition. Identify specific challenges that patients with complex medical needs face during the transition process. Credits:

    Learning Objectives:
    Define the term resilience in the context of trauma-informed care.List 3 key individual resilience factors, and identify the symptoms of trauma that may result from impairment in those resilience factors.Define secondary traumatic stress, and distinguish it from burnout.Consider how health disparities are caused and exacerbated by trauma, and therefore necessitate a trauma-informed approach to address disparities.Credits:

    The Minority Tax & Gratitude Tax Feat. #PTBGIM 2022 and ACP Arizona Chapter

    The Minority Tax & Gratitude Tax Feat. #PTBGIM 2022 and ACP Arizona Chapter

    Dr. Ricardo Correa, an endocrinology physician in ACP Arizona chapter, Chair-Elect Designee of the ACP Council of Early Career Physicians, and Associate Editor of SGIM Forum, and Dr. Priya Radhakrishnan, Chief Academic Officer/Vice President of Health Equity at HonorHealth, governor of ACP Arizona , and Governor-Elect Designee of the ACP Board of Governors, reflect on the topic of a previous episode of The DEI Shift: the minority tax (Season 2, Episode 1) and its relevance for generalist physicians and trainees. 
    Key messages: 
    The gratitude tax is a feeling of obligation that underrepresented minorities in medicine (URMM) faculty have to an academic institution and to future generations of URMMs for being given the opportunity to be a physician. Academic leaders can provide appropriate incentives for academic faculty to participate in internal (e.g., committee) service to mitigate the minority tax and gratitude tax.Scholarly work can take a variety of forms and can be recognized to give voice to URMMs. Affinity groups can offer an opportunity to promote advocacy, advancement, and education towards diversifying the internal medicine pipeline.Learn more at thedeishift.com.

    Follow us on Twitter and share why you are #ProudToBeGIM. Tag @theDEIShift @ArizonaACP! Tell us why you’re #ProudToBeGIM and share your perspectives or tips on how to mitigate the minority tax and gratitude tax.
