We will continue to offer 5 different categories of presentation to achieve our goals:
Journal Club: This is a review of one or more articles relevant to pediatric urgent care practice. Articles will be evaluated for methods and generalizability to pediatric urgent care. A brief section on possible practice change should also be included for each article. Journals included in this screening can include: JAMA, NEJM, PEDS, JAMA PEDS, and ACADEMIC PED, Journal of PEM.
Case Conference: This is a review of 1-3 patient cases seen in pediatric urgent care. Each case should include a brief didactic discussion including any relevant evidence-based management recommendations. The presenter should also consider addressing the following variables: 1) patient safety 2) system safety 3) system efficiency 4) potential for quality improvement intervention
Evidence-based Guideline Review: This is a review of a specific evidence-based guideline implemented in an urgent care or ER setting. The presenter should consider discussion of the following: relevance and application potential, understanding meaningful practice variation, key performance indicators, measurable outcomes, and change management strategies.
Pediatric Urgent Care Grand Rounds: This is a presentation by content experts (pediatric urgent care providers and/or pediatric sub-specialists) on topics relevant to pediatric urgent care. Topics can range from patient care, healthcare research, medical education, public health to innovation.
Quality Improvement: This is a review of a quality improvement intervention implemented in a pediatric urgent care or ER setting. Speaker should review:
1) What were the global and specific aims of project?
2) What changes were made?
3) What metrics were measured?
4) What Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) cycles were performed?
5) What conclusions were drawn and what (if any) future interventions are being considered?
