Call for Submissions to the 3rd Annual AAHPM Interactive Educational Exchange!

If you are a med ed geek like me, you L-O-V-E the Interactive Educational Exchange which has been a fun and exciting part of the Americal Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine (AAHPM) Annual Assembly for the past two years. It's not your ordinary concurrent session. No! Instead, you listen to a quick overview of the different presentations and then you zip around to learn more about the ones that you find most intriguing. I have always come away with at least one interesting idea to try or tweek to fit my teaching style and audience. So... if you're students are yawning, you can A) buy them coffee or B) go to the Interactive Educational Exchange on March 9th, 2012 from 3:30 to 5:00 pm. 

If you've got an exciting way to teach palliative medicine to any discipline, please do share!  Submit it for the 2012 Interactive Educational Exchange at the AAHPM Annual Assembly in Denver! Hurry! Submissions are due by 5 pm PST August 2, 2011! Heck! They make it easy by even giving you previous year's submission examples.

"The Exchange provides a structured, interactive, and hands-on forum for palliative care educators from all disciplines to present, share and exchange materials and methods from model educational initiatives, including curricula, program development, educational process, assessment tools, online materials, and research in teaching and evaluation." (via the Educational Exchange Session Faculty: Laura Morrison, MD; Elise Carey, MD; Barbara Jones, MSW, PhD; Pamela Fordham, RN, DSN, CNRP)

Hope to see you there!!!
