I. What is FPIN and What is the Mission? Family Physicians Inquiries Network
What is FPIN? FPIN is a membership organization offering medical scholarship education to students, residents, faculty, and fellows in family medicine. Publication projects are used as a means for teaching Evidence-Based Medicine (EBM) concepts.
FPIN Mission: FPIN supports a collaborative learning community for primary care clinicians, learners, and faculty to promote and disseminate evidence-based scholarship. We improve patient care by translating research into practice. Academic Departments with University & Community-based Residencies are working together to help each: – Develop a culture of research and scholarly publication – Promote mentoring programs among faculty and trainees – Create a supportive environment for translational research – Ultimately, raise the level of scholarship throughout the discipline

IV. Scholarly Activity
Current RRC Requirements for Faculty Scholarship Must establish and maintain an environment of inquiry and scholarship with an active research component Must regularly participate in clinical discussions, rounds, journal clubs, and conferences. Some should also demonstrate scholarship Peer-reviewed funding, publications, presentations, participation in national committees or organizations Should encourage and support residents in scholarly activities
What’s new in Proposed Requirements for Faculty Core family medicine faculty members must participate in faculty development programs designed to enhance the effectiveness of their teaching, administration, leadership, scholarship, clinical and behavioral components of faculty performance
Current RRC Requirements for Resident Scholarship Curriculum must advance residents’ knowledge of the basic principles of research Residents must have a supervised experience in scholarly activity (big description follows….) Forum must be provided for analyzing scientific evidence Must have guided experience in application of emerging clinical knowledge to own panels
What’s new in Proposed Requirements Much more direct language: Curriculum in basics of principles of research Projects “Residents should complete two scholarly projects at least one of which should be a quality improvement project.”
Other big change affecting scholarship Section IV.A on Didactics and Conferences Gutted! “The program must provide a regularly scheduled forum for residents to explore and analyze evidence pertinent to the practice of family medicine such as journal club.”
Are There Numbers Coming? Review Committee Update Slide Presentation from PDW Residency Faculty 2 projects per faculty member on average over 5 years (regional or national dissemination) Residents 2 projects per resident by end of residency (local or more wide- spread dissemination)
Your PIF (NAS?) and FPIN Residency Scholarly Activity (PR IV.B) Does the program ensure that residents are provided supervised experiences in research or other scholarly activities? YES Are residents introduced to the basic principles of study design, performance, analysis and reporting, and the relevance of research to patient care? YES List the scholarly activities of the residents during the last three years. LIST FPIN Publications List scholarly investigative projects currently in process by residents and other types of scholarly activities in which resident are engaged. LIST FPIN Publications
Your PIF and FPIN Faculty Research and Scholarly Activities & Faculty Development (PR II. B.9) Faculty Development Opportunities: Peer-review an FPIN publication, teach residents using the PURLs Journal Club, become an FPIN workshop presenter List the academic achievements of the program director and family medicine faculty during the last three years. Complete an FPIN publication, help lead FPIN presentations at National Conferences
Your PIF and FPIN Conferences (PR IV.A.3.c) List required conferences, seminars, workshops and/or other planned group activities. Host an FPIN onsite workshop In addition to structure didactic conferences what other methods of learning does your program use to foster continuous professional development of residents? Self-directed learning modules FPIN Institute courses and comprehension quizzes Small group discussions Participate in an FPIN webinar Journal club Utilize the PURLs Journal Club Workshops Host an FPIN onsite workshop
Your PIF and FPIN Practice-Based Learning and Improvement (PR IV.A.5.c)) Describe one example of a learning activity in which residents engage to develop the skills needed to use information technology to locate, appraise, and assimilate evidence from scientific studies and apply it to their patients’ health problems. The description should include: a) Locating information b) Using information c) Technology d) Appraising information e) Assimilating evidence information f) Applying information to patient care All aspects of being an FPIN member and completing the step by step writing process along with using the FPIN Institute satisfy this requirement!

Common Scholarship Program Barriers Faculty barriers: Protected time Shortage of faculty, resources Leaders don’t have enough experience to mentor Resident barriers: Lack of structured expectations, experiences Enthusiasm towards evidence-based medicine Shared barriers: Fear of statistics Difficulty with evidence synthesis Procrastination
Scholarship Success Plan Effectively assess the skills amongst your faculty and residents Identify faculty development project Schedule a hands-on group workshop Mandate faculty complete a project first Assign a leader/champion to create timetable checklists for accountability REQUIRE a scholarly project for your residents Protect time with structured expectations, completion dates
Steps to FPIN 1. Join FPIN 2. Set Goals and Create Strategy 3. Utilize FPIN Institute 4. Train Faculty 5. Resident & Student Introduction to FPIN 6. Consider a Webinar or Onsite Workshop* 7. Publish & Follow Through Additional Fee Involved
Webinars One writing group, max of 4 faculty participants Ideal for faculty new to FPIN seeking a quick start Sessions generally span over the period of 8 weeks and require homework, increasing the comprehension of key skills Participants will receive 1:1 feedback prior to manuscript submission Optimum “train the trainer” solution for faculty with a desire to co-mentor residents with their scholarly activity projects Note: there is an additional cost for the webinars.
Why does the FPIN approach work? Publication projects are built for residents and programs to be successful Writing projects are ACHIEVABLE for busy residency programs Time frames are achievable to ensure residents are published while in residency
VI. FPIN is Proud to Announce Our Strategic Partnership with MedEdNet
MedEdNet, a AHRQ-registered practice- based research network, is a collaboration of primary care residency programs dedicated to studying innovations in medical education. Mission: To improve the health of populations served by primary care practices by conducting research on educational effectiveness in residency training.
The P4 Project MedEdNet is the result of the P 4 project P4 is the 1 st comprehensive examination of the structure, length, and content of FMRs since they were defined in the 1960s P4 project was a 6 year national demonstration of innovations in Patient-Centered Medical Homes (PCMH) in FMR training
MedEdNet Graduate Survey Benefits Follow residents from their 1 st year of training into actual clinical practice Determine and understand the relationships between residency training and post graduate scope of practice Interactive Web page allows you to compare your program’s results to those in the entire network
Development of FPIN Institute Courses in Partnership with MedEdNet Coming in 2014 Including the following new courses: –Fitting manuscript development into your busy academic year –Essentials of collaborative academic writing –Developing strong educational research grants –Managing educational research projects after you are funded
Due to our shared commitment to translate research into practice in an effort to improve the quality of healthcare, FPIN & MedEdNet expect to be offering joint presentations and collaborations in the coming future!
