Abstract: 

The ETHNICS mnemonic (Explanation, Treatment, Healers, Negotiate, Intervention, Collaboration, and Spirituality) provides a framework for cross-cultural interviewing that physicians and other healthcare professionals can use in providing culturally appropriate geriatric care. A didactic session is included based on the article. In addition, there is a small group facilitators guide that includes two cases, allowing learners to explore their own health beliefs and utilize the ETHNICS mnemonic in role-play. Also available at: http://med.fsu.edu/geriatrics/ethnogeriatric/defau...

Educational objectives: 

The clinical tool provides a cross-cultural interviewing framework for older adult patients. The didactic session and small group facilitators guide enhance understanding of providing culturally appropriate geriatric care and use of the ETHNICS mnemonic. CLINICAL TOOL Learners should be able to: 1. Elicit and facilitate cross-cultural issues during healthcare encounters with older adult patients. DIDACTIC SESSION BASED ON ARTICLE Learners should be able to: 1. State and describe four rationale for providing culturally appropriate geriatric care. 2. Define the concept of cultural competence and describe three techniques that can reduce racial and ethnic health disparities. 3. State the seven domains of the ETHNICS framework and describe challenges implementing its use. SMALL GROUP FACILITATORS GUIDE Learners will be able to: 1. Identify their own cultural values, assumptions and beliefs and recognize how they may impact on future patient care. 2. Conduct a patient interview that elicits health beliefs and incorporates these beliefs into the treatment plan. 3. Describe at least 3 of the 7 domains of the explanatory model ETHNICS framework.

Additional information/Special implementation requirements or guidelines: 

The clinical tool and small group facilitator's guide have been used by 158 freshman medical students. However, they are applicable to graduate medical education, fellows, and interdisciplinary healthcare professionals. The need to define and assess optimal strategies for influencing attitudes and facilitating skills development in providing culturally appropriate care is a critical challenge to academic medicine.

The clips depict the patient's interactions with physicians, nurses, PTs, OTs, social workers and family members. Also included are screening tests, radiograph images, still pictures and reports providing an array of resources for instructors to use in incorporating geriatrics into their teaching. To facilitate access to these audio/visual resources, the files are indexed by basic science courses, clinical rotations, and an additional 50+ other topics. This individual Virtual Patient case for Mr. and Mrs. Clifford can be downloaded above (click Mr. Clifford CD Image). Once you have downloaded the CD image, follow the instructions below. The Virtual Patient Cases can also be purchased individually or as a series. 

Educational objectives: 

Geriatric patients are a wonderful resource for illustrating key basic science and clinical concepts. By incorporating these learning objects into your instructional materials, we hope to achieve our ultimate goal: to provide needed exposure to issues commonly encountered with aging patients not only acutely, but life long. We hope that these easily accessible learning objects will enable you to use your creativity as a teacher to make our "virtual patients"; come alive, thereby improving the care for geriatric patients. To integrate the AGS's Basic Competencies for Care of Older Patients (Attitudes, Knowledge, Skills) as a longitudinal thread throughout the medical student curriculum or in discrete teaching interactions by adding these case-based image resources to existing instruction. Particular emphasis focuses on: 1) Aging - Longevity 2) Hearing - Vision 3) Infection - Bacterial and Viral 4) Injury - Motor Vehicle 5) Oral Health 6) Prostatitis 7) Sexuality 8) Skin Cancer

The concept of this module is to give healthcare professionals and students a framework for developing an interprofessional approach to managing chronic conditions. It also includes pre-test, post-test and exercises. A certificate of completion is awarded, after completing the module in its entirety.

Educational objectives: 

Upon completion of this module, the participant will be able to:

  • Review epidemiology of chronic disease and the Chronic Care Model.
  • Provide a background on effective interprofessional teams and collaborative practice.
  • Describe the importance of effective interprofessional teams in chronic care.
  • Apply the interprofessional approach to management of chronic conditions using Congestive Heart Failure as a case study.

Technical Requirements and Notes: This learning module uses Adobe Flash media and may require you to add a browser "plug-in" in order to display properly. Most computers already have this free plug-in installed. But, if yours does not, it is very easy to download and install. Try the module first because the software is "smart" enough to detect the Flash player. If the module doesn't begin, you will be automatically prompted to download the plug-in. The module contains links to external websites which will open in a new browser window. Your browser's back button will not return to the module, so these new windows should be closed.

In order to track your progress, you must create an account and fill out a brief demographic profile. Once the profile has been created, you can log directly into the course.
