Grand Rounds

November 6, 2019

7:30 am -8:30 am

LIB 110

The presentation will map logical and at times paradoxical relationships between cornerstone activities at the School of Medicine with successful, outcomes-producing models of care. Success is loftily defined as optimal personal, integrated human health and well being improvement. Successes and failures, societal misperceptions, and new lines of potential support for population health improvement will be explored. Physician effectiveness, well being, and self-stories and illustrations will keep the discussion real and tangible.

1. Describe how 2 centerpiece programs at the School of Medicine translate to outcomes-producing models of care
2. List one notable failure in our attempt to align stakeholder (patients and providers) behaviors in healthcare
3. List one promising shift in thinking in terms of treatment persistence outside the halls of medicine
4. Describe how individual accountability relates to heavy investment in psychosocial support
5. Describe why a caring newly trained physician has his/her best chance of growing impact, empathy, and satisfaction when working in a “high-functioning” team

Dr. Ken Hopper is a healthcare strategist, experienced in structuring, staffing and incentivizing approaches that result in “health behavior change” along the social, health, and well-being spectrums. For 30 years, he has worked as a national leader in two major health plans, developing effective models of integrated medical and behavioral systematic case review and team-based care. One notable innovation was the “High Intensity Integrated Team,” field-based case management program. In Fort Worth, a partnership was formed supporting the on-the-streets care and case management in the “Pathways to Housing” program. Collaboration and pooled funding meant greater impact–the opposite of the customary Provider-Payer relationship. High fidelity clinical pathways, Team, and Community support were in the formula each time. Preventable medical expenditures and health status improvement, as well as individual accountability are not in conflict when structured wisely. The curricular and personal support structures at our medical school parallel those of innovative outcomes-producing healthcare design.

Health Care Disparities: Mitigating Unconscious Bias in Health Care-Dr. Uche Blackstock, MD

November 21, 2019
9:00 AM – 10:30 AM
IREB 350
This series will support a comprehensive approach to establishing the causes of disparities from a population –based perspective that includes diversity as important market of where and how inequities in health status occur and how and why they persist. The ultimate goal is to equip future providers with the ability to examine and treat not only the illness but to foster liaisons in the community to address and remove persistent causes of disparate levels of morbidity and mortality. By intentionally focusing on instilling a vision for the health and well-being of the public, the health care system will become a leader for health rather than simply an entity that along with a solid focus on treating the entire person, in collaboration with others.

Objectives – Mitigating Unconscious Bias in Healthcare
• Define and differentiate unconscious bias from conscious bias
• Explore the ways in which unconscious bias influences communication and
decision-making in the health care setting
• Identify practical strategies to utilize in order to mitigate the detrimental effects
of unconscious bias

Over the last ten years, Dr. Blackstock has had first-hand experience with the healthcare system and the deleterious impact of health disparities on our marginalized populations and communities. Her mother’s legacy inspires Dr. Blackstock to use her voice to advance health equity and to address the detrimental effects of structural racism and other systems of oppression on the health status of our communities.

Dr. Blackstock is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Emergency at NYU School of Medicine, where she is also the Faculty Director for Recruitment, Retention and Inclusion in the Office of Diversity Affairs.
