Gaps in medical education and training of providers exist. Future training will need to increase emphasis on the importance of the focus on the patient and equip providers to deliver quality care in a manner that facilitates collaboration and understanding of patients . These are issues facing those the field of medicine and those examining workforce trends today. These issues will be even more important in the future as the numbers of patients accessing primary care expands. Given the importance of the need to establish trust in the patient/provider interaction, this session will explore present issues in medical education by identifying a gap in the application of current knowledge of the need to obtain informed consent prior to patient interaction which has the potential for consequences relating to the quality of the interaction, trust and adherence to care. The session will also explore the impact of health reform in creating a need for more providers to provide preventive care. A novel model of care will be explored designed to address the gap in the number of trained providers able to provide screening colonoscopy. The session will also examine the impact of screening guidelines and health reform on women's health.
Session Objectives: The participant will be able to describe the potential impact of health reform and the application of screening guidelines on primary care practice and preventive care . The participant will be able to define issues in current medical training and differentiate the success of current models from the potential success of future models of training in in shaping the nature of interaction between patients and care providers.
