The Center for Education and Research on Therapeutics (CERTs) Scientific Forum

Project: Research project

Project Details


A working group composed of CERTs representatives (Bruce Lambert, Bill Galanter, and Gordy Schiff), the Scientific Forum, and representatives from academic medicine (AAIM, CDIM, and APDIM) has been convened to develop content for five modules that will form the basis of the curriculum on conservative prescribing. The modules include: 1) A Rationale and Introduction to Conservative Prescribing, 2) Drug Selection: Learning to Make the Right Choices, 3) Conservative Prescribing as a Means to Reduce Adverse Drug Effects, 4) Developing a Shared Agenda With Patients, and 5) Conservative Prescribing as it Fits Into the Future of Medicine. The group will also meet with the Executive Director of MedU which has worked closely with our academic medicine partners to produce, host, and manage complementary curricula (e.g., on High Value Care). Our goal is to roll this out to third year internal medicine students by the end of August 2016, with the option to extend the offering to residents and other specialties (e.g., pediatrics). Bruce L. Lambert, PhD.: As a member of the working group, Dr. Lambert will lead development of modules 3 and 4, and will actively participate in development of modules 1, 2 and 5. Dr. Lambert will also participate in discussions with and development of materials with MedU.
