The PV Cards are getting a new name and their own website! Beginning today you can find the complete point-of-care reference library on its own standalone, mobile-enabled website: ALiEM Cards at www.aliemcards.com. The PV Cards have been in various formats whether they be apps and websites. Hopefully building a single repository, accessible on any device, will make the PV Cards easier to access and use when you need them at the bedside, after a shift, or in impromptu teaching sessions.
The Case of the Catastrophic Classroom outlined a scenario where a junior faculty member is tasked with revamping didactics at her institution. We joined Jill as she walked through various phases of discovery, building empathy for her stakeholders. This case was subsequently discussed at the CORD Academic Assembly 2016 (#CORDaa16) where 4 teams competed to design novel solutions for this complicated problem.
This month the ALIEM Design team, led by Drs. Teresa Chan (@TChanMD), Catherine Patocka (@patockaem), Jeremy Voros (@vorosmd) co-hosted a design challenge with CORD’s Dr. Rob Cooney (@EMeducation) where a keen bunch of creative medical educators participated to identify the problems and pitch possible solutions that might work for Jill. Their discussion and solutions were based on the insights and suggestions from the ALiEM community. We are proud to present to you the Curated Community Commentary and our Design Hackathon team solutions. Thank-you to all our participants for contributing to the very rich discussions last week.
