  • Shared Canadian Curriculum in Family Medicine (SHARC-FM): Creating a
           national consensus on relevant and practical training for medical students
           
    • Authors: Keegan, D. A; Scott, I, Sylvester, M, Tan, A, Horrey, K, Weston, W. W.
      Abstract: Problem addressedIn 2006, leaders of undergraduate family medicine education programs faced a series of increasing curriculum mandates in the context of limited time and financial resources. Additionally, it became apparent that a hidden curriculum against family medicine as a career choice was active in medical schools.Objective of programThe Shared Canadian Curriculum in Family Medicine was developed by the Canadian Undergraduate Family Medicine Education Directors and supported by the College of Family Physicians of Canada as a national collaborative project to support medical student training in family medicine clerkship. Its key objective is to enable education leaders to meet their educational mandates, while at the same time countering the hidden curriculum and providing a route to scholarship.Program descriptionThe Shared Canadian Curriculum in Family Medicine is an open-access, shared, national curriculum (www.sharcfm.ca). It contains 23 core clinical topics (determined through a modified Delphi process) with demonstrable objectives for each. It also includes low- and medium-fidelity virtual patient cases, point-of-care learning resources (clinical cards), and assessment tools, all aligned with the core topics. French translation of the resources is ongoing.ConclusionThe core topics, objectives, and educational resources have been adopted by medical schools across Canada, according to their needs. The lessons learned from mounting this multi-institutional collaborative project will help others develop their own collaborative curricula.

  • Family medicine residents training in, knowledge about, and perceptions of
           digital rectal examination
    • Authors: Bussieres, A; Bouchard, A, Simonyan, D, Drolet, S.
      Abstract: ObjectiveTo evaluate family medicine residents’ training in, knowledge about, and perceptions of digital rectal examination (DRE).DesignDescriptive study, using an online survey that was available in French and English.SettingQuebec.ParticipantsA total of 217 residents enrolled in a family medicine program.Main outcome measuresResidents’ demographic characteristics; the DRE teaching they received throughout their medical training; their reasons for omitting DRE; their recognition of DRE indications (strong vs weak) and application of DRE for 10 anorectal complaints; and their perceptions of the overall quality of the DRE training they received.ResultsOf the 879 residents contacted, 217 (25%) responded to the survey. Throughout their training, one-third of respondents did not receive any supervision for or feedback on DRE technique. Seventy-one percent of respondents expressed their inability to identify the nature of abnormal examination findings at least once during their training. The most frequently reported reasons to omit DRE were patient refusal, inadequate setting, and lack of time.ConclusionMost of the residents in this study had omitted DRE at least once in their clinical work despite recognizing its importance. There was discordance between recognition of a complaint requiring DRE and execution of this technique in a clinical setting. Family medicine education programs and continuing medical education committees should consider including DRE training.

  • Evaluation of perceived and actual competency in a family medicine
           objective structured clinical examination
    • Authors: Graves, L; Lalla, L, Young, M.
      Abstract: ObjectiveTo examine the relationship between objective assessment of performance and self-rated competence immediately before and after participation in a required summative family medicine clerkship objective structured clinical examination (OSCE).DesignLearners rated their competence (on a 7-point Likert scale) before and after an OSCE along 3 dimensions: general, specific, and professional competencies relevant to family medicine.SettingMcGill University in Montreal, Que.ParticipantsAll 168 third-year clinical clerks completing their mandatory family medicine rotation in 2010 to 2011 were invited to participate.Main outcome measuresSelf-ratings of competence and objective performance scores were compared, and were examined to determine if OSCEs could be a "corrective" tool for self-rating perceived competence (ie, if the experience of undergoing an assessment might assist learners in recalibrating their understanding of their own performance).ResultsA total of 140 (83%) of the third-year clinical clerks participated. Participating in an OSCE decreased learners’ ratings of perceived competence (pre-OSCE score = 4.9, post-OSCE score = 4.7; F1,3192 = 4.2; P  .08 for all), nor did ratings of station-relevant competence (before and after) (r < 0.19 and P> .09 for all). Ratings of competence before and after the OSCE were correlated for individual students (r> 0.40 and P < .001 for all).ConclusionAfter the OSCE, students’ self-ratings of perceived competence had decreased, and these ratings had little relationship to actual performance, regardless of the specificity of the rated competency. Discordance between perceived and actual competence is neither novel nor unique to family medicine. However, this discordance is an important consideration for the development of competency-based curricula.

  • Diagnosis and management of psoriasis
    • Authors: Kim, W. B; Jerome, D, Yeung, J.
      Pages: 278 - 285
      Abstract: ObjectiveTo provide primary care clinicians with an up-to-date and practical overview of the diagnosis and management of psoriasis.Quality of evidencePubMed, MEDLINE, EMBASE, and Cochrane databases were searched for relevant meta-analyses, randomized controlled trials, systematic reviews, and observational studies about the diagnosis and management of psoriasis.Main messagePsoriasis is a chronic, multisystem inflammatory disease with predominantly skin and joint involvement. Beyond the physical dimensions of disease, psoriasis has an extensive emotional and psychosocial effect on patients, affecting social functioning and interpersonal relationships. As a disease of systemic inflammation, psoriasis is associated with multiple comorbidities, including cardiovascular disease and malignancy. The diagnosis is primarily clinical and a skin biopsy is seldom required. Depending on the severity of disease, appropriate treatment can be initiated. For mild to moderate disease, first-line treatment involves topical therapies including corticosteroids, vitamin D3 analogues, and combination products. These topical treatments are efficacious and can be safely initiated and prescribed by primary care physicians. Patients with more severe and refractory symptoms might require further evaluation by a dermatologist for systemic therapy.ConclusionMany patients with psoriasis seek initial evaluation and treatment from their primary care providers. Recognition of psoriasis, as well as its associated medical and psychiatric comorbidities, would facilitate timely diagnosis and appropriate management with effective and safe topical therapies and other medical and psychological interventions, as needed. More severe and refractory cases might warrant referral to a dermatologist for further evaluation and possible systemic therapy.

  • Corticosteroids for renal scar prevention in children with acute
           pyelonephritis
    • Authors: Sakulchit, T; Goldman, R. D.
      Pages: 286 - 287
      Abstract: Question Acute pyelonephritis in children is of great concern and I usually refer these patients to a pediatrician or send them to the emergency department owing to the risk of renal scarring. Are steroids an acceptable treatment to reduce risk of scarring'Answer Several agents have been studied in an effort to prevent renal scar formation following acute pyelonephritis in children. Use of corticosteroids, in conjunction with standard therapy for acute pyelonephritis, shows promising findings. However, evidence is very limited and steroids should not be offered on a regular basis as part of treatment.

      Abstract: ObjectiveTo determine if performance on practice simulated office orals (SOOs) conducted during residency training could predict residents’ performance on the SOO component of the College of Family Physicians of Canada’s (CFPC’s) final Certification examination.DesignProspective cohort study.SettingUniversity of Ottawa in Ontario.ParticipantsFamily medicine residents enrolled in the University of Ottawa’s Family Medicine Residency program between July 1, 2012, and June 30, 2014, who were eligible to write the CFPC Certification examination in the spring of 2014 and who had participated in all 4 practice SOO examination sessions; 23 residents met these criteria.Main outcome measuresScores on practice SOO sessions during fall 2012, spring 2013, fall 2013, and spring 2014; and the SOO component score on the spring 2014 administration of the CFPC Certification examination.ResultsWeighted least squares regression analysis using the 4 practice SOO session scores significantly predicted the final Certification examination SOO score (P < .05), with an adjusted R2 value of 0.29. Additional analysis revealed that the mean scores for the cohort generated at each time point were statistically different from each other (P < .001) and that the relationship over time could be represented by either a linear relationship or a quadratic relationship. A generalizability study generated a relative generalizability coefficient of 0.63.ConclusionOur results confirm the usefulness of practice SOOs as a progress test and demonstrate the feasibility of using them to predict final scores on the SOO component of the CFPC’s Certification examination.
