- Learn the basic recommendations from the USPTF regarding common screening tests/practices in the outpatient setting
- Gain an understanding of the principles of screening and critically evaluate the usefulness of a particular screening test.
- Review the literature on a particular common outpatient health topic.
- Provide an opportunity for a resident participation in educational conference
- Interns are responsible for presenting topics during the Ambulatory week didactic sessions focusing on health maintenance screening or common outpatient topic
- Each intern will present approximately 1-2 topics throughout the year and choose or be assigned by the ambulatory Chief resident from a list of available topics.
- These topics will typically be presented on Thursday AM didactics
- Each presentation will be created on power point, and should last 15-20 minutes.
- Faculty will evaluate the presentation and document feedback in new innovations.
In your presentation you are expected to:
- Apply each of WHO screening principles to your topic
- WHO Guidelines were published in 1968 but are still applicable today:
- The condition should be an important health problem.
- There should be a treatment for the condition.
- Facilities for diagnosis and treatment should be available.
- There should be a latent stage of the disease.
- There should be a test or examination for the condition.
- The test should be acceptable to the population.
- The natural history of the disease should be adequately understood.
- There should be an agreed policy on who to treat.
- The total cost of finding a case should be economically balanced in relation to medical expenditure as a whole.
- Case-finding should be a continuous process, not just a “once and for all” project.
- Give a Background – why is this important?
- Describe intervention(s), evidence, guidelines
- Note controversies/gray areas
- Present data on how we are doing – city, state, US – and systems approaches to improvement
- In your conclusion give us your opinion- would you practice this screening test on your patients and why?
