To promote cultural competence and enhance teaching of resident physicians within the community, Northwest Washington Family Medicine Residency will host a Continuing Medical Education Event at CHI Franciscan Health’s Harrison Medical Center in Silverdale on August 19, 2017.
Two presentations will be delivered by content-area-experts Drs. Anna Lembke and Harvey Makadon:
Anna Lembke, MD, is Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University Medical Center. She is the Program Director for the Stanford University Addiction Medicine Fellowship and Chief of the Stanford Addiction Medicine Dual Diagnosis Clinic. She is the author of a book on the prescription drug epidemic: Drug Dealer, MD: How Doctors Were Duped, Patients Got Hooked, and Why It’s So Hard to Stop. Dr. Lembke gives voice to the millions of Americans struggling with prescription drugs while singling out the real culprits behind the rise in opioid addiction: cultural narratives that promote pills as quick fixes, pharmaceutical corporations in cahoots with organized medicine, and a new medical bureaucracy focused on the bottom line that favors pills, procedures and patient satisfaction over wellness.
Harvey J. Makadon, MD is the Director of Education and Training at The Fenway Institute, a division of Fenway Health, Boston, and a Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School. He teaches how to improve access to quality care for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in health care settings around the country. He directs the National LGBT Health Education Center to improve cultural competence in LGBT health in community health centers, and the National Center for Innovation in AIDS Care. He also served on the Advisory Committee to the Institute of Medicine of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences in the preparation of The Health of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender People: Building a Foundation for Better Understanding; March 2011.
Three faculty development sessions will be presented by experts in the field of Graduate Medical Education: Drs. Michael Arnold, Douglas Maurer, and Nancy Stevens will address issues related to professionalism, provision of effective feedback for learners, and interaction with residents when behavior no longer is within the 'acceptable' realm.
Michael Arnold, DO, is a Faculty Development Fellow at Madigan Army Medical Center. He is Adjunct Faculty in the Family Medicine Residency Program at Madigan Army Medical Center and a candidate for an MBA at Pacific Lutheran University’s School of Business.
