  • Academic Productivity in Psychiatry: Benchmarks for the H-Index
    • Authors: Frank P. MacMaster; Rose Swansburg; Katherine Rittenbach
      Pages: 452 - 454
      Abstract: Objective Bibliometrics play an increasingly critical role in the assessment of faculty for promotion and merit increases. Bibliometrics is the statistical analysis of publications, aimed at evaluating their impact. The objective of this study is to describe h-index and citation benchmarks in academic psychiatry. Methods Faculty lists were acquired from online resources for all academic departments of psychiatry listed as having residency training programs in Canada (as of June 2016). Potential authors were then searched on Web of Science (Thomson Reuters) for their corresponding h-index and total number of citations. Results The sample included 1683 faculty members in academic psychiatry departments. Restricted to those with a rank of assistant, associate, or full professor resulted in 1601 faculty members (assistant = 911, associate = 387, full = 303). h-index and total citations differed significantly by academic rank. Both were highest in the full professor rank, followed by associate, then assistant. The range in each, however, was large. Conclusions This study provides the initial benchmarks for the h-index and total citations in academic psychiatry. Regardless of any controversies or criticisms of bibliometrics, they are increasingly influencing promotion, merit increases, and grant support. As such, benchmarking by specialties is needed in order to provide needed context.

  • Evaluating an Advisor Program for Psychiatry Residents
    • Authors: Obianuju O. Berry; Mary Sciutto; Deborah Cabaniss; Melissa Arbuckle
      Pages: 486 - 490
      Abstract: Purpose A formal residency advisory program was instituted in 2010 to assist psychiatry residents in achieving academic and personal goals and to help identify additional mentors. In this project the authors sought to evaluate and improve resident and faculty satisfaction with the residency advisory program. Methods At the end of the 2013-2014 academic period, residents completed an anonymous survey to determine baseline satisfaction with the residency advisory program. A series of interventions were then implemented including the addition of a resident liaison to the program, formal recognition of faculty advisors, and email reminders regarding regular residency advisory meetings. Eight months later a follow-up survey was distributed to assess the impact of the interventions on resident and faculty satisfaction with the residency advisory program and mentoring within the residency program. Results There were notable improvements in overall satisfaction with a 58% increase (p<0.05) in residents meeting with their advisors. After the intervention, residents were more likely to seek their resident advisor for help in facilitating relationships with potential career mentors (28% vs 72%, OR=6.64, 95% CI =1.83-24.08). Although 87% of all residents reported having mentors outside of the formal residency advisory program, approximately half of those who are in their first year post medical school (PGY1s) reported having no mentors outside of the residency advisory program (notably all women). Conclusions Resident advisory programs benefit from continuous evaluation and quality improvement with enhanced structure, including a senior resident position, leading to improved satisfaction. Residency advisory programs may be particularly useful in helping to facilitate relationships with other mentors, which may be particularly important for women early in their training.

  • Self-Reported Training Adequacy, Experience, and Comfort Level in
           Performing Schizophrenia-Related Clinical Skills among Psychiatry
           Residents and Fellows
    • Authors: Laurence Greene; Kathleen Moreo; Henry Nasrallah; Rajiv Tandon; Tamar Sapir
      Pages: 497 - 502
      Abstract: Objective In the context of an educational program on schizophrenia for psychiatry trainees, this survey study analyzed associations between self-reported training adequacy, experience in providing patient care, and comfort level in performing schizophrenia-related clinical skills. The influence of the education on comfort level was also assessed for each skill. Methods Survey respondents were psychiatry residents and fellows who participated in a schizophrenia education program at an in-person workshop or through online videos recorded at the workshop. In a pre-program survey, participants reported their experience in providing schizophrenia patient care and rated their training adequacy and comfort level for performing seven clinical skills involved in diagnosing and treating schizophrenia. The post-program survey included items for reassessing comfort level in performing the skills. Results Across the seven clinical skills, the proportion of respondents (n = 79) who agreed or strongly agreed that their training was adequate ranged from 29 to 88 %. The proportion of high ratings for comfort level in skill performance ranged from 45 to 83 %. Comfort level was significantly associated with training adequacy for all seven clinical skills and with experience in providing patient care for four skills. For all skills, comfort level ratings were significantly higher after versus before the educational workshop. Commonly indicated needs for further training included education on new therapies, exposure to a broader range of patients, and opportunities for longitudinal patient management. Conclusions Psychiatry trainees’ self-reported, disease-specific training adequacy, experiences, and comfort level have unique applications for developing and evaluating graduate medical curriculum.

  • The Attitude of Psychiatric and Non-psychiatric Health-care Workers Toward
           Suicide in Malaysian Hospitals and Its Implications for Training
    • Authors: Ching Sin Siau; Lei-Hum Wee; Sapini Yacob; Seen Heng Yeoh; Tassha Hilda binti Adnan; Jamaiyah Haniff; Komathi Perialathan; Aziman Mahdi; Abu Bakar Rahman; Choon Leng Eu; Suzaily binti Wahab
      Pages: 503 - 509
      Abstract: Objectives This research is aimed to examine the attitude of health-care workers toward suicidal patients in Malaysian hospitals, comparing responses from psychiatric and non-psychiatric workers, and to identify specific needs in suicide prevention and management training. Method This is a multi-site cross-sectional study. The authors conducted a survey based on a translated self-administered questionnaire to participants from seven core hospital departments. Results While most health-care workers regardless of department and specialty took their duty to prevent suicide seriously, a large majority of them expressed negative attitudes such as finding suicidal behavior irritating, and more than half believed suicidal attempts were a way of making others sorry. However, psychiatric workers were less likely to have judgmental attitudes that included believing suicide attempters as being selfish or trying to get sympathy from others. Conclusions As there were more similarities than differences in health-care workers’ attitudes toward suicide, recommendations on basic and continuous suicide prevention and management training among hospital workers were made. The interventions focused on improving knowledge, affective, and skill-based areas that were aimed to correct the wrongful understanding of and to minimize the negative attitudes toward suicidal individuals indicated by the study results.

  • Suicide Risk Assessment by Residents: Deficiencies of Documentation
    • Authors: Yasas Tanguturi; Maria Bodic; Abraham Taub; Peter Homel; Theresa Jacob
      Pages: 513 - 519
      Abstract: Objective The authors sought to assess the documentation of suicide risk assessments performed by psychiatry residents in a psychiatric emergency service (PES) and to identify differences in documentation between previously used paper charts and a new electronic medical record (EMR) system based on the Columbia Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS)—risk assessment version. Methods This study is a retrospective chart review of psychiatric evaluations performed by psychiatry residents during a 1-year period in the PES of a large, urban, academic medical center. The sample was selected by a systematic random sampling technique from a total of 3931 evaluations performed on adult patients during the study period. The suicide risk assessments were evaluated using data regarding demographics, process indicators identified from the C-SSRS, and diagnoses. Results A total of 300 charts were reviewed. Only 91% of the evaluations contained documentation of suicidal ideations (either admitted or denied); 5 other variables were documented in more than 50% of the evaluations: treatment status (95.3%), presence/absence of previous suicide attempts (84.6%), recent event-denies (56%), history of recent negative events (55%), and suicidal behavior-denies (53%). Additionally, 2 risk factors and 3 protective factors were documented in over 25% of the evaluations. Conclusion Documentation was deficient in multiple areas, with even the presence/absence of suicidal ideations not being documented in all evaluations. Use of an EMR with built-in “clickable” options selectively improved documentation especially regarding risk and protective factors adapted from the C-SSRS. Emphasis on documentation of assessments is paramount while training residents in suicide risk assessment.

  • Encouraging Mindfulness in Medical House Staff via Smartphone App: A Pilot
           Study
    • Authors: Louise Wen; Timothy E. Sweeney; Lindsay Welton; Mickey Trockel; Laurence Katznelson
      Abstract: Background Stress and burnout are increasingly recognized as urgent issues among resident physicians, especially given the concerning implications of burnout on physician well-being and patient care outcomes. Objective The authors assessed how a mindfulness and meditation practice among residents, supported via a self-guided, smartphone-based mindfulness app, affects wellness as measured by prevalidated surveys. Methods Residents in the departments of general surgery, anesthesia, and obstetrics and gynecology were recruited for participation in this survey-based, four-week, single-arm study. All participants used the app (Headspace) on a self-guided basis, and took surveys at enrollment, at 2 weeks, and at 4 weeks. The Positive and Negative Affect Schedule (PANAS) assessed mood, and the Freiburg Mindfulness Inventory (FMI) measured mindfulness. Results Forty-three residents enrolled in this study from April 2015 to August 2016; 30 residents (90% female) completed two or more surveys, and so were included for further analysis. In a comparison of baseline scores to week four scores, there was a significant increase in FMI at week four (36.88 ± 7.00; Cohen's d = 0.77, p = 0.005), a trend toward increase in the positive affect score (PAS) (31.73 ± 6.07; Cohen's d = 0.38, p = 0.08), and no change in negative affect score (NAS) (21.62 ± 7.85; Cohen's d = -0.15, p = NS). In mixed-effect multivariate modeling, both the PAS and the FMI scores showed significant positive change with increasing use of the smartphone app (PAS, 0.31 (95% CI 0.03–0.57); FMI, 0.38 (95% CI 0.11–0.66)), while the NAS did not show significant change. Conclusions Study limitations include self-guided app usage, a homogenous study subject population, insufficient study subjects to perform stratified analysis of the impact of specialty on the findings, lack of control group, and possible influence from the Hawthorne effect. This study suggests the feasibility and efficacy of a short mindfulness intervention delivered by a smartphone app to improve mindfulness and associated resident physician wellness parameters.

  • Personality Traits Are Associated with Academic Achievement in Medical
           School: A Nationally Representative Study
    • Authors: Kunmi Sobowale; Sandra A. Ham; Farr A. Curlin; John D. Yoon
      Abstract: Objective This nationally representative study sought to identify personality traits that are associated with academic achievement in medical school. Methods Third-year medical students, who completed an initial questionnaire in January 2011, were mailed a second questionnaire several months later during their fourth year. Controlling for sociodemographic characteristics and burnout, the authors used multivariate logistic regressions to determine whether Big Five personality traits were associated with receiving honors/highest grade in clinical clerkships, failing a course or rotation, and being selected for the Alpha Omega Alpha or Gold Humanism Honor Society. Results The adjusted response rates for the two surveys were 61 (n = 564/919) and 84% (n = 474/564). The personality trait conscientiousness predicted obtaining honors/highest grade in all clinical clerkships. In contrast, students high in neuroticism were less likely to do well in most specialties. Students with higher conscientiousness were more likely to be inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society, while students high in openness or agreeableness traits were more likely to be inducted into the Gold Humanism Honor Society. Burnout was not associated with any clinical performance measures. Conclusions This study suggests the importance of personality traits, particularly conscientiousness, in predicting success during the clinical years of medical school. Medical educators should consider a nuanced examination of personality traits and other non-cognitive factors, particularly for psychiatry.

  • Factors Associated with Grade Appeals: A Survey of Psychiatry Clerkship
           Directors
    • Authors: Lia A. Thomas; Nathaniel Milburn; Abigail Kay; Erica Hatch
      Abstract: Purpose In an effort to provide medical students with opportunities for accurate grading, some psychiatry clerkship directors allow for grade appeals. The authors examined the appeals process from the clerkship directors’ perspective. Methods A 23-item survey, consisting of multiple choice and narrative questions, was sent to allopathic and osteopathic accredited schools in North America. Questions included information about the medical school, the clerkship director, and the grade appeal processes. StatPlus sorted and analyzed the data, and grade challenge rates were compared between schools. The narrative responses were independently sorted by the authors. Results Sixty-one responses were received (35% of programs). A grade challenge rate was calculated for each response, using the number of appeals/students per year, allowing for further comparison of grade challenges. Clerkships with an honors/pass/fail grading schema had a higher grade challenge rate (p = 0.002) when compared to all other reported grading schemas. Clerkships where the grade appeal could result in a lower grade had a smaller grade challenge rate (p = 0.026) as compared to programs where a grade appeal could not result in a lower grade. The authors observed three common pathways for the processing of grade appeals and four common themes among clerkship directors as contributors to grade appeals. Conclusion A grade appeal is often the final step in the grading process for medical students. By identifying factors that contribute to grade appeals, areas for targeted interventions in the evaluation process are potentially identified. Future study of grade appeals, including from the medical students’ perspective, is warranted.

  • A Focused Addiction Curriculum and Its Impact on Student Knowledge,
           
    • Authors: Robert J. Feeley; David T. Moore; Kirsten Wilkins; Brian Fuehrlein
      Abstract: Background Assessment of attitudes towards addiction in medical students has largely gone unexplored. This study examines the impact of a supplemental substance use disorder curriculum in the psychiatry clerkship on medical student attitudes towards addiction. Methods The curriculum was only administered to students at one clerkship site. Subsequently, medical students were surveyed across all sites regarding their attitudes towards addiction. Results The survey response rate was 37.5% (N = 75/200), with 25 (33%) completing the supplemental addiction curriculum. In bivariate analysis, medical students receiving the curriculum were more likely to express confidence in managing patients with alcohol and opiate use disorders (T = 2.01, p = 0.05) and were more knowledgeable about Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) as a treatment option available to patients (T = 2.27, p = 0.03). Conclusions A supplemental addiction curriculum can improve medical student confidence in managing substance-using patients as well as improve knowledge of AA.
