Winter 2017: Person-centered Care

Introduction | Permanent link
If you’ve had a chance to look at this month’s Journal of Dental Education (JDE), I hope you noticed that the ADEA CCI 2.0 has released a new white paper. The topic: person-centered care. We believe that person-centered care will be the next guidepost for the health professions, and we’re eager to get ADEA members talking about how we can prepare our students and ourselves to provide care that is both holistic and tailored to the needs, values and preferences of the individuals and families we serve.

Fall 2017: Introducing ADEA CCI 2.0 at the ADEA CCI Liaisons Summer Meeting

Introduction | Permanent link
In September 2016, ADEA convened a community of stakeholders to relaunch the ADEA Commission on Change and Innovation in Dental Education (ADEA CCI) as ADEA CCI 2.0—a multi-institutional faculty development program. The commission introduces a Steering Committee composed of six dental educators who have been influential in promoting change. Several of these individuals joined me in Baltimore this past June for the 2017 ADEA CCI Liaisons Summer Meeting. This issue of the ADEA CCI Liaison Ledger contains excerpts of conversations with these Steering Committee members about the meeting and the work the CCI Liaisons will be doing. 

Summer 2017: Lifelong Learning

Introduction | Permanent link
Since 2011, CODA standards have obligated dental schools to graduate students who demonstrate “professional values and capacities associated with self-directed, lifelong learning.” While all of our schools strive to achieve this goal, cultivating students who will make a habit of self-directed learning is still a work in progress. Fortunately, we have colleagues who have devoted themselves to the pursuit of encouraging lifelong learning and are willing to share what they have learned.

n this edition of the ADEA CCI Liaison Ledger, we consider the ways in which meditation and other stress management practices improve focus and academic performance—two assets with enormous value for dental students.
