Sections from today's episode Encourage your patients to be open and honest about addiction  How to ask about addiction without judgement and how to intervene  "By not intervening, we're condoning" Addiction is a disease of free will and treating addiction is not replacing one drug with another Today's guest Nora D. Volkow, M.D., is Director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) at the National Institutes of Health. NIDA is the world’s largest funder of research on the health aspects of drug use and addiction. Dr. Volkow’s work has been instrumental in demonstrating that drug addiction is a disease of the human brain. As a research psychiatrist and scientist, Dr. Volkow pioneered the use of brain imaging to investigate the toxic and addictive properties of abusable drugs. Her studies have documented changes in the dopamine system affecting, among others, the functions of frontal brain regions involved with motivation and self-regulation in addiction. She has also made important contributions to the neurobiology of obesity, ADHD, and aging and to the imaging field. Dr. Volkow has published more than 780 peer-reviewed articles, written more than 100 book chapters and non-peer-reviewed manuscripts, and co-edited the Neuroscience for the 21th Century Encyclopedia and edited four books on neuroimaging for mental and addictive disorders.

Today’s guests are Dr. Vinny Arora (@FutureDocs) and Chase Corvin (@ChaseCorvin) from the University of Chicago. Dr. Vineet Arora is the Herbert T. Abelson Professor of Medicine at the University of Chicago Medicine. As Associate Chief Medical Officer for the Clinical Learning Environment, she bridges education and clinical leadership to engage trainees and staff into the institutional quality, safety, and value mission. She is an elected member of the National Academy of Medicine whose work improving care and learning in teaching hospitals has been funded by NIH, AHRQ and the Macy Foundation, and has been cited over 10,000 times. Dr. Chase Corvin is a general surgery resident at the University of Chicago Medicine. In addition to his medical training, Dr. Corvin has degrees in economics and business administration. He is currently completing two years of dedicated research and collaborating separately with the University of Chicago Booth School of Business and the Federal Aviation Administration’s Air Traffic Organization to study quality improvement and efficiency within high reliability organizations. He also studies methods for improving interprofessional teaming within healthcare. “Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, our institution has aimed to improve interdisciplinary teaming in the care of our patients by increasing face-to-face communication between nursing and physicians/advanced practice providers. By engineering a standard communication console in patient rooms to display a novel MD/APP-in-Room button, physicians messaged nursing staff when they were at the bedside. After successful implementation on a pilot unit with improvements in length of stay and patient experience, we scaled up the implementation hospital-wide to address interprofessional communication challenges that occurred as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. We present our findings that this innovation has had on our efficiency and collaboration in patient care as well as the challenges to interprofessional communication in a pandemic. Our work in hospital-wide implementation is ongoing, but we are seeing promising results similar to what we previously saw on our pilot-unit.” Sections from this episode include: Developing the “MD/APP In Room” button to improve patient experience and strengthen team communication How medical students can be better utilized and integrated into healthcare teams The importance of health systems science and using it to identify and remedy inefficiencies within healthcare teams With support from Elsevier, and produced in collaboration with the American Medical Association, the HSS series seeks to broaden students’ understanding of the nature of medicine, medical education, and what separates them from other human endeavors.

Welcome back to our Health Systems Science series! This episode is about Population and Social Determinants of Health. Tonya Fancher, MD, MPH, is associate dean of workforce innovation and community engagement at UC Davis. She has created UME and GME pathways that address workforce shortages, including as PI on an AMA Accelerating Change in Medical Education grant with Kaiser Permanente to create a 3-year MD pathway and as co-PI on an AMA Accelerating Change in Resident Education grant with OHSU to create a regional collaborative to address physician shortages in rural, tribal, urban and communities between Sacramento and Portland. After completing a primary care general internal medicine residency at NYU and Bellevue Hospital, Dr. Fancher spent four years in the US Air Force. She graduated from Cornell University where she majored in Classics and in Biology. She is on Twitter @TonyaFancher. Mustafa Shakir is a second year medical student at UC Davis. He is currently preparing to take STEP 1, and is very excited to start year 3 to explore his varying interest in multiple specialties. In the past year, he has been extensively involved with the student run clinics at UCD, especially during the COVID pandemic. He is also currently working on his first soon-to-be publication relating to Alzheimer’s disease. He previously graduated from UC Santa Barbara, and obtained a BS in Biopsychology. Following the COVID-19 outbreak, concerns for student safety, shortages in personal PPE, and not-yet-defined safety protocols resulted in the closure of all twelve UC Davis Student-Run Clinics (SRCs). The SRCs are the sole providers of healthcare for thousands of multilingual, medically underserved, uninsured or marginalized members of the Sacramento community. Through the SRC’s, healthcare students engage in interprofessional collaboration to advocate for equitable patient care and learn to combat the barriers imposed by social determinants of health. Therefore, the aim of this project was to safely reestablish in-person operations at the SRCs for patients, who already have tenuous access to care, to receive essential services. Sections from this episode include: The importance of the social determinants and their impact on healthcare outcomes The importance of diversity in the healthcare workforce Keeping care accessible for vulnerable and underserved populations With support from Elsevier, and produced in collaboration with the American Medical Association, the HSS series seeks to broaden students’ understanding of the nature of medicine, medical education, and what separates them from other human endeavors.

Her research interests are in the field of medical education, as well as in women's health with a focus on cultural competence. She serves as a reviewer for many peer-reviewed journals and she is currently on the Editorial Board for the International Journal of Gynecology and Obstetrics. Questions and topics covered in this episode include: Why HSS is important and has become more important with COVID-19 Why students need to be taught HSS during medical school What is systems-based thinking How HSS affects practicing physicians With support from Elsevier, and produced in collaboration with the American Medical Association, the HSS series seeks to broaden students’ understanding of the nature of medicine, medical education, and what separates them from other human endeavors. Medicine is not a “pure science,” a kind of “applied biology.” Rather, it is fundamentally an art that uses science. As a discipline, Health Systems Science considers those ideas and concepts which are integral to medicine as a profession but don’t fall under the domain of the clinical or basic sciences. The National Board of Medical Examiners includes HSS topics in its USMLE Content Outline and even offers a dedicated Health Systems Science subject examination. Each episode of this series will include on-the-go learning with practice exam questions explained by expert guests.  This series is sponsored by Panacea Financial: Banking Built for Doctors, by Doctors. ITB and Panacea share a common goal which is to make med school better. Panacea Financial is designed to handle the unique situation of medical students. We hope you will check them out to see how they can make your life easier.
