In this episode: Coming to you from ICRE 2017, the second part of KeyLIME live finds the co-host discussing an observational study where the authors assert that the #meded literature lacks studies that provide validity evidence for workplace-based assessments (WBAs). As any frequent listener knows, the hosts have often discussed the importance of the contemporary shift away from high-stakes, end-of-training exams, to programmatic assessment, an approaching involving a system that emphasizes WBAs sampled in authentic environments, often with direct observation, and collated in meaningful ways for decision-making. Will this paper change their point of view? Listen to find out!

Episode 147 – Rudeness breaks teams
In this episode: This week’s paper aims to explore the impact of rudeness on the performance of medical teams. Jon shares: as a clinician, he thinks a lot about the function of a system to optimize the quality of patient care and prevent error, and, as an educator, he often thinks of how to effectively teach and structure patient encounters for learners to facilitate their acquisition of knowledge and experience – he’s aware that with improved experience, learners can provide better care. However, he admits he has never given serious attention to the psychology of team performance on patient outcomes – this paper changes all that!

In this episode: When was the last time you, dear KeyLIME listener, was observed performing a clinical task by someone who had some kind of power over your career? Was it a colleague as part of a simulation? An administrative leader? Was it at a conference? Was it a mandatory peer review? Was it comfortable for you? Did you change what you would normally do in that situation?

Episode 131 – Systems Student or Social Worker? The mystery of the longitudinal integrated pre-clerkship
In this episode: This week's selection was a suggestion from Miguel Galán de Juana, one of our loyal listeners! For nearly 100 years, there have been calls from experts and other stakeholders to change medical education to incorporate “health systems science” (HSS). This push for HSS in health professions education is heating up, as multiple countries seek physicians who have new sets of skills and behaviours to improve the performance of health care systems and improve patient outcomes. Jason presents a qualitative study that sets out to identify “value-added roles for medical students within the health care delivery system” in Pennsylvania, USA.
