The topics of clinical profile of the courses in e-learning for Students of Medicine and Medical Doc

 

 

The topics of clinical profile of the courses in e-learning for Students of Medicine and Medical Doctors aim to investigate issues of particular relevance. This encompass the epidemiological sense, but very often neglected or misunderstood issues. The perspective is that of a medicine with strong predictive, preventative and personalized characterization.

We recognize some basic features of our method of approach to the study:

1) In general, EBM presentations, with explicit basis of scientific evidence of the proposed procedures or therapies. After a preliminary assessment of the level of knowledge of the specific group of students in training, teaching and management of the subsequent points will be exposed by interactive modalities

2) Awareness of nosological relevance and application of knowledge regarding gender differences, in terms of clinical, pathophysiological and therapeutic choices.

3) Definition of  the context of clinical problems, using as models patients on-charge to different operating units, and also multimedia asynchronous presentations of clinical cases.

4) Systematic exemplification of patient-doctor video-interview during the clinic visit; the indication for treatment modalities based on the recognition of the priorities will be highlighted. The priorities are presented in terms of urgency, severity of possible outcome, but also pressure profile of psycho-social, and related procedures for managing and using the most common solution will be taken into account: problem-solving, guidelines, flow-chart or direct cascade -elimination options.

5) Exemplification of the analysis of context, both in terms of the patient involved but also in terms of the availability and features of the specific health organization:

a) What strategies and clinical diagnostic routes are possible for a given patient in a given context;

b) assessment of adequacy and appropriateness for  achieving an optimal results;

c) sustainable options, or need of cange, and analysis of their cost-benefit analysis.

6) The settings shall take into account the arguments of what is now called "clinical risk", i.e. process analysis aimed at the effectiveness of method of assessment and management for the benefit of patients and efficiency of health care organization.

7) An unified approach taking into account the need to link knowledge from epidemiology and prevention with a pragmatic clinical approach: evaluation and interventions on lifestyle and clinical nutrition are  integral part thereof.

8) Training on the approach with "clusters", ie, with grouping and synthesis of individual professionals or small teams of different but complementary skills and competences. This is to make easier and more timely diagnosis, monitoring and event management.

9) Definite reference to bioethical issues, strategies to prevent or manage potential medico-legal disputes, aspects of psychological approach to the problems in a perspective of tolerance and civilization.

10) Translational perspectives of international profile, even as a possibility of confrontation with colleagues, students and faculty, of other institutions or nationality, are not a secondary objective of this course.

11) Ongoing self-assessment and analysis question-answers of the treated subjects with feedback to the components of each module.

12) Educational materials available within the course or on the web and applicative tasks will be required to be accomplished.
