The Harvard Macy Institute Podcast Season 2 Episode 4: Developing Leaders for Healthcare and Education

June 1, 2021

The Harvard Macy Institute Podcast aims to connect our Harvard Macy Institute community and to develop our interest in health professions education topics and literature. Our podcast is hosted by our Program for Educators in the Health Professions course faculty Victoria Brazil, and will feature interviews with health professions education authors and their research papers.

Season 2, Episode 4 features Harvard Macy Institute Leading Innovations in Health Care and Education course directors Liz Armstrong, Derek van Bever and Josh Nagler, together with 2020 scholars Tanya Holt and Tanya Horsley, reflection on the why, what and how of developing leaders for 21st century education and healthcare.           

We are experiencing rapid and fundamental change in the ways healthcare and health professions education are delivered, and in the social, political, and financial environment in which they exist. In this podcast, Victoria Brazil speaks with Josh Nagler about the need for leadership during times of change, and the ways we can develop leaders from across the career spectrum. We draw on the wisdom of HMI Leading Innovations in Healthcare and Education co-directors Derek van Bever and Liz Armstrong in reflecting on the critical need for innovation and change in healthcare, the translational of leadership theory to practice, and the use of case studies in leadership development. They emphasize the importance of creating a psychologically safe environment where learners can take risks as critical leadership development steps, and describe how the theory of disruptive innovation continues to shape their approach to guiding others to lead change.

The podcast also features the voices of two scholars from the 2020 Leading Innovations in Health Care and Education program – Tanya Horsley and Tanya Holt – who describe this developmental process from a scholars viewpoint, and their experience of becoming part of a community of practice within the Harvard Macy Institute.

Watch out for new episodes this year which will be announced on our blog and our Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook social media channels.

The COVID-19 pandemic has presented challenges to learning and teaching in post graduate education. In this paper, Sarah Teele and colleagues describe their response within the pediatric cardiology program at Boston Children’s Hospital (BCH) - Online education in a hurry: Delivering pediatric graduate medical education during COVID-19. They report their work on “redesigning the clinical learning system - including a description of the learners and environment, the pedagogical principles that guided the approach, and technological tools used in implementation.”

 

Sarah Teele is a pediatric cardiologist the intensive care unit at BCH, as well as a clinical educator and researcher. She is currently completing the Master's program in Health Profession Education at the Massachusetts General Hospital Institute for Health Professions. Traci Wolbrink is a pediatric critical care physician and leading educator, who joined the conversation from her perspective as senior author on the paper and co-director of OPENpediatrics – the platform used by the team.

 

The insightful conversation with Traci and Sarah canvassed issues like setting strategies for online learning, platform selection, cultivating online engagement, curating resources, and evaluating programs. We concluded by offering some thoughts on future directors for scholarship in this area.

January 13, 2021

The Harvard Macy Institute Podcast aims to connect our Harvard Macy Institute community and to develop our interest in health professions education topics and literature. Our podcast is hosted by our Program for Educators in the Health Professions course faculty Victoria Brazil, and will feature interviews with health professions education authors and their research papers.

Podcast S2E1 features Kieran Walsh, Clinical Director at the British Medical Journal (BMJ), discussing cost and value in health professions education.

Health professions education is expensive, but we hope ‘worth it’ for our patients and communities. In this episode Victoria Brazil interviews Kieran Walsh. He is the clinical lead of the medical education and clinical decision support products at BMJ, including BMJ Best Practice.

He has a keen interest in cost and value in health professions education, and we discuss terminology, concepts and practical applications in the field. What are the real costs and how do we calculate them? Where do we look for determination of value or effectiveness? How does this apply to examples like online learning or simulation? Why should we do cost effectiveness research and why haven’t we done much of it up to this point.

 

For more on this work, Kieran is part of the Society for Cost and Value in Health Professions Education (SCVHPE).

Introducing the Harvard Macy Institute Podcast: Virtual Communities of Practice in Health Professions Education

The Harvard Macy Institute Podcast aims to connect our Harvard Macy Institute community and to develop our interest in health professions education topics and literature. Our podcast is hosted by our Program for Educators in the Health Professions course faculty Victoria Brazil, and will feature interviews with health professions education authors and their research papers.

What is a virtual community of practice (vCoP)? How do we find ‘our people’ online for professional development and educational scholarship?

In this episode Victoria Brazil speaks with Leading Innovations in Health Care & Education alumnae Teresa Chan and Michelle Lin. We start with Yarris et al. Finding Your People in the Digital Age: Virtual Communities of Practice to Promote Education Scholarship, and explore the definition of a CoP and the ‘anatomy’ of a vCoP. Are these communities organic or intentional? We discuss leadership and success factors in cultivating a CoP through a number of outstanding examples – Academic Life in Emergency Medicine and CanadiEM - as well as some perils and pitfalls.

We consider the specific role of podcasts in supporting vCoPs and our guests point us toward another great read – Riddell et al. Independent and Interwoven: A Qualitative Exploration of Residents’ Experiences with Educational Podcasts.

And there are shoutouts to #HMIChat on Twitter, Dr. Kristina Dzara (@KristinaDzara) and the marvellous #KeyLimePodcast!

What is leadership in healthcare? Who should our leaders be? And how do they develop the skills they need for these roles?

In this episode Victoria Brazil speaks with MIHCE Deputy Director Cathy Green and leadership development academic and gastroenterologist Grant Phelps. We start with Green et al., “Developing leadership skills in young ophthalmologists” and explore what we mean by ‘leadership,’ the role this plays in 21st century healthcare, and how we develop leadership across the continuum of health professions education.

We consider the specific role of leadership in complex systems and in teams, and the critical focus of leadership as an enabler of health service improvement.

And there are shout-outs to Marg Hay, the use of Twitter as a leadership tool, and a sneaky reference to Roy and HG for Australian listeners…..

Podcast #3 explores Four big issues for assessment in health professions education in discussion with Louis Pangaro, and guest comments from  Sharon Mickan and Martin Pusic. This discussion was originally prepared for the 2020 Systems Approach to Assessment in Health Professions Education course in Boston, where both Lou and Martin were expected to participate as faculty. However, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the course was postponed and rescheduled for October 18th through October 22nd, 2020. The course will also run from March 7 – 12, 2021. 

Assessment in health professions education is complex, as expectations of health professionals evolve, as well as our understanding of how to demonstrate readiness for practice.

In this episode Victoria Brazil speaks with course director Louis Pangaro about the Academic Medicine article What’s Next? Developing Systems of Assessment for Educational Settings by John Norcini.

We discuss the four big issues John Norcini nominates for attention – summative assessment (and how much is enough), formative assessment, assessment beyond the individual (including measures of process and measures of teams) and assessment in the context of complex adaptive systems in healthcare.

Informative and thought provoking discussion for teachers, learners and leaders in health professions education.
