The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Health Research and Educational Trust (HRET) recently released a presentation (available in full-length and shortened formats) that was developed with assistance from the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine (AACOM). Four osteopathic medical college faculty members and one physician assistant faculty member had convened at AACOM’s offices to develop, “Putting Prevention into Practice,” a presentation that focuses on teaching students (and others) to use electronic tools to incorporate prevention into clinical practice. Participants included Robert M. Gum, DO, MPH, Regional Assistant Dean, West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine Statewide Campus; John C. Pellosie, Jr., DO, MPH, Chair of Preventive Medicine, Nova Southeastern University College of Osteopathic Medicine; V. James Guillory, DO, MPH, Professor of Public Health, A.T. Still University – School of Osteopathic Medicine in Arizona; Howard S. Teitelbaum, DO, PhD, MPH, Professor of Preventive Medicine, Lincoln Memorial University-DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine; and James F. Cawley, MPH, PA-C, Professor and Vice Chair, Department of Prevention and Community Health, School of Public Health, and Health Services Director, PA/MPH Program, School of Medicine and Health Sciences, George Washington University.
The presentation is available on the AHRQ and AACOM websites for use by those teaching at colleges of osteopathic medicine, or as a self-directed teaching tool. The funding for this project was obtained through a partnership with the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality and the Health Research & Educational Trust, in conjunction with the American Hospital Association.
The full presentation has 60 slides and should take approximately two hours to present, and the second presentation is a shortened version of the first, with 30 slides that should take approximately one hour to present.
