AAHC/I has had a great run of online programs recently. However, we know that time zone differences can make it difficult for members to attend particular webinars. In the spirit of showcasing the outstanding programming and presentations, AAHC/I would like to highlight some of our most recent sessions and encourage you to visit our online programs page to view past programs which have been recorded. Program topics include: the social determinants of health, international collaboration, medical education, technology and medicine, research, clinical, management, and government relations.
This year, we have had a variety of programs both domestic and international in scope. The two most recent international programs addressed International Collaboration - Health Services Research and International Collaboration: Spotlight on Patient Care. The International Collaboration - Health Services Research program showcased Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School Singapore and its new Health Services Research Institute, developed in collaboration with SingHealth. This collaboration focuses on how healthcare is practiced and delivered, while taking into account those factors HSRI intends to look at, such as cost, quality, and accessibility. Drs. David Matchar and Julian Thumboo were the presenters.
The International Collaboration: Spotlight on Patient Care program highlighted how the University of Queensland- Ochsner Clinical School is advancing the need for high quality patient care and clinical services. Profs. Professor Darrell HG Crawford (University of Queensland) and Leonardo Seoane (Ochsner Clinical School, New Orleans, Louisiana) outlined their process for teaching patient care and collaboration between faculties within the health system, and previewed the successful partnership model at the University of Queensland- Ochsner Clinical School.
Both programs were highly informative and very enlightening. AAHC/I strongly encourages you to visit the online programs page and watch any program of interest which you may have missed. Additionally, we have two upcoming programs that promise to be engaging and of great interest to our membership. Please join Pavel Ovseiko, DPhil, Senior Research Fellow, Health Policy and Management, University of Oxford on October 20 at 1pm EDT for his presentation on Gender Inequality and Leadership in Academic Health Centers and the International Learning Collaborative on November 9 at 5pm EDT for a Discussion on the Nursing Perspective: Spotlight on the International Leadership Collaborative. We look forward to “seeing” you online.
