As I mentioned on this blog previously, Beverley Kane, MD, has been preparing a curriculum for Stanford School of Medicine students on the use of the electronic health record with patients. She recently shared this video that she’s created with us, and I am embedding it here:
Here is the video we premiered on Thursday for the MS IIs in Stanford’s Practice of Medicine course.
It was very well received, especially as I introduced it with a straight face, asking them to note how many of the guidelines the doctor and nurse violated.
They start their clinical rotations this month and get trained on the EHR for the first time.
So nice to see creativity applied to this part of the medical school curriculum; more importantly, nice to see the service aspect of medical care being part of the curriculum in the first place. To the readers – are there other medical schools that you know of that are doing well in this regard? Teaching about e-mailing patients and sharing patients’ medical / health information with them in the exam room and in the living room? Post in the comments please!
