Promoting Patient-Centered Care During Residency Training: an Inpatient Tale of Two Programs

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Background: Teaching residents to provide patient-centered care (PCC) is a challenge within traditional residency programs. We describe strategies developed to adapt a PCC curriculum from an existing program to a new one, highlighting components that were duplicated as well as those that were adapted to local needs. Activity: The authors compared their PCC curricula against known barriers to PCC teaching, identified strategies as shared or tailored in each domain, and described outcomes. Results: Sixteen shared curricular strategies were identified. One hundred percent of pediatric residents (n = 20) “agreed or strongly agreed” that the newly adopted PCC strategies promote an understanding of patient-centered care. Discussion: Success related to shared and tailored strategies may inform how PCC training models in other specialties may be developed.
