Picture of GME from the First Round of CLER Visits and Opportunities Ahead

Monday, July 25, 2016

The ACGME's mission is to improve health care and population health by assessing and advancing the quality of resident physicians' education through accreditation. The Clinical Learning Environment Review (CLER) Program was established in line with this mission to provide formative feedback in six areas of focus: patient safety; health care quality (including health care disparities); care transitions, supervision; fatigue management, mitigation and duty hours, and professionalism. The collective observations from the first set of CLER site visits portray a community of teaching hospitals, medical centers, and ambulatory care sites that has great capacity to shape the quality of the emerging physician workforce and drive improvement in patient care.
 
This webinar is the first in a series of presentations designed around the six CLER Focus areas. The presenters examine the data from the recent CLER National Report of Findings 2016 and engage the community in a dialogue about we have learned.

Learning Objectives:
  • Define six focus areas associated with effective clinical learning environments
  • Identify areas of high-leverage improvement associated with being a teaching environment
  • Consider what health care and physician leaders can do to impact change

As part of the American Hospital Associations (AHA) ongoing mission to improve the health of patients and communities, AHA introduced the Physician Leadership Forum to engage and partner with physicians to collaboratively advance excellence in patient care. AHA's Physician Leadership Forum also seeks to gather input from physicians to inform AHA policy and advocacy efforts while advancing physician leadership within the health care delivery system.
