September 13, 2018 by Vanessa Claude

At CHEST 2018 we will have featured sessions presented by our sister societies. These sessions will provide valuable insight for improving your career as an educator, a clinician, or a researcher. Check out the sessions below.

APCCMPD

Sunday, Oct 7 – 1:00-2:00pm, Convention Center 207B
Symposium for the Clinician Educator: Part I Best Practices in Faculty Development

Faculty: Alexander S. Niven, MD, FCCP; Jennifer W. McCallister, MD, FCCP; David A. Schulman, MD, MPH, FCCP; Matthew C. Miles, MD, FCCP
Description: Faculty are routinely asked to provide verbal and written feedback to their trainees and program as an essential part of their learning experience and progression to independent practice. Faculty diversity is a strength, but can present a challenge to providing consistent, targeted, and learner centered feedback based on common program expectations. This session will provide participants with a practical discussion of innovative solutions and available resources from training programs across the nation to help program directors and their faculty develop a shared mental model for competency-based performance, and deliver consistent and effective feedback to facilitate trainee growth throughout training.

Sunday, Oct 7 – 2:15-3:15pm, Convention Center 207B
Symposium for the Clinician Educator: Part II Faculty Development World Café

Faculty: Alexander S. Niven, MD, FCCP; Jennifer W. McCallister, MD, FCCP; David A. Schulman, MD, MPH, FCCP; Matthew C. Miles, MD, FCCP; William F. Kelly, MD, FCCP; Gabriel T. Bosslet, MD, FCCP; Jack D. Buckley, MD, MPH, FCCP; Sarah Tapyrik, MD, FCCP; Joshua Smith, MD, FCCP; Amy E. Morris, MD, FCCP
Description: “Faculty are routinely asked to provide verbal and written feedback to their trainees and program as an essential part of their learning experience and progression to independent practice. Faculty diversity is a strength, but can present a challenge to providing consistent, targeted, and learner centered feedback based on common program expectations. This session will provide an opportunity to share best practices in a “World Café” format, facilitated by the faculty members and featuring both pre-identified presenters and members of the audience who wish to share their program experiences.

Sunday, Oct 7 – 3:30-4:30pm, Convention Center 207B
Symposium for the Clinician Educator; Part III Practical Lessons for Trainee Feedback – Beyond “Great Job” and “Keep Reading”

Faculty: Alexander S. Niven, MD, FCCP; Jennifer W. McCallister, MD, FCCP; David A. Schulman, MD, MPH, FCCP; Matthew C. Miles, MD, FCCP; William F. Kelly, MD, FCCP; Septimiu D.

McCambridge, MD; Meredith K. Greer, MD; Aaron J. Lampkin, MD; Jonathan S. Kurman, MD, MBA; Meredith E. Pugh, MD; Diana Kelm, MD
Description: Faculty are routinely asked to provide verbal and written feedback to their trainees and program as an essential part of their learning experience and progression to independent practice. Training in this important and challenging skill – especially in settings where identifying opportunity for growth is needed – is less common and consistent. This session will provide participants with an opportunity to discuss common settings where feedback occurs and possible approaches to challenging situations.

Canadian Thoracic Society

Monday, Oct 8 – 11:00am-12:00pm, Convention Center 207B
CTS Scientific Program 2018

Faculty: John A. Gjevre, MD, MSc, FCCP; Erik Vakil, MD; Glenda N. Bendiak, MD; Tara E. Lohmann, MD
Description: Medical thoracoscopy is the procedure of choice for undiagnosed exudative pleural effusion and is an important tool for the diagnosis and management of malignant pleural disease. This talk will review the indications, risks and benefits of medical thoracoscopy and describe it application in the field of interventional respirology. The session will also discuss recent advances in the understanding of respiratory disease in the pediatric sickle cell population, and describe a model for combined hematology-pulmonology care.

Monday, Oct 8 – 1:30pm-2:30pm, Convention Center 207B
CTS Scientific Program 2018

Faculty: Clodagh M. Ryan, MBBCh; C F. Ryan, MD, MBBCh, FCCP
Description: In-laboratory polysomnography is the gold standard for the evaluation of sleep disorders. Alternative less resource intensive testing has been sought by physicians and patients alike due to the limited availability of in-laboratory testing in many jurisdictions. The significant technological advance in ambulatory monitoring devices for sleep apnea has provided a mechanism for the rapid testing of patients. As with any diagnostic test a complete understanding of the efficacy and efficiency is critical for the appropriate implementation into clinical care pathways.

Monday, Oct 8 – 3:15pm-4:15pm, Convention Center 207B
