NWHFC Webinar Series Launched
 
The Northwest Heart Failure Collaborative: Project Echo (NWHFC) launched a biweekly, interactive web-based heart failure consultation and education program for community healthcare providers on Wednesday, May 4, 2016. The one-hour online conference began with a 15-minute presentation, “Heart Failure: Identifying the Syndrome and Burden of Disease”, by Todd Dardas, MD, MS, an advanced heart failure cardiologist from UW Medicine. Dr. Dardas reviewed the defining factors that contribute to prevalence of heart failure, modifiable risk factors most responsible for reducing prevalence of heart failure and the Framingham and the Cardiovascular Health Study criteria for heart failure. For the next 45 minutes a community participant presented a patient case and received consultation from an interprofessional specialist panel from UW Medicine including Dr. Dardas; Alice Chang, MSW; and Tracy Fowler, ARNP.

TeamBITS20152016 TeamBITS Sessions
 
Now in its seventh year, the innovative Team-Based Interprofessional Training Simulations (TeamBITS) program allows health professions students who typically train in specialty-specific environments to practice their skills together as they would in a real-world setting. Over four days, from May 23–26, the WWAMI Institute for Simulation in Healthcare (WISH) facilities at the UW Medical Center and Harborview Medical Center will host healthcare professional students for a week of immersive team-training simulation in the areas of Adult, Pediatric and OB/GYN Acute Care.  During the course of a team-training session, students have opportunities to discuss care options with simulated patients and their families (played by actors) and other health professionals participating in the simulation, voice concerns and make decisions in “real time”. Then, students and faculty debrief at the conclusion of each session.
 
Adult Acute Care Sessions will run Monday, May 23–Wednesday, May 25 at Harborview Medical Center. OB Sessions will run Tuesday, May 24 at the UW Medical Center. Pediatric Sessions will run Wednesday, May 25–Thursday, May 26 at the UW Medical Center.
