ABSTRACT:

The domain for self-directed learning and/or self-improvement as a physician is complex, involving 10 competencies focused on learning and improvement around abilities that allow a pediatrician to become a more masterful doctor. The notions of internal motivation, desire to improve and do better, and self-determination are all at work in this domain. Internal motivation is hard to directly observe but can be inferred by longitudinal observation of behaviors. Malcolm Knowles1 first established the definition of self-directed learning as a process in “which individuals take...

ABSTRACT:

In this issue of Pediatrics Schumacher et al1 provide an analysis of the resource domains needed to implement the Pediatrics Milestones into residency training. While noting the promise of Pediatrics Milestones “for developing a valid . . . way to track residents’ development and provide a roadmap for their learning,” the authors question the ability of training programs to marshal necessary resources. Faculty raise similar concerns with variants of the following questions: Why change (from the current training and assessment system)? What is the evidence (that milestone...

ABSTRACT:

This supplement to the Pediatrics Milestone Project marks a milestone for the project itself. It allows us to archive the milestones' first iteration in our communities' peer review literature and facilitate our ability to acquire more meaningful information about how these milestones have impacted the community at large. By tracing citations to the individual articles representing each domain, its competencies, and their milestones over time, we will learn what the community is paying attention to and what they are not, as well as how others are improving upon and advancing this work. We...

ABSTRACT:

Entrustable professional activities (EPAs) are gaining traction across the globe as a practical way to teach and assess competencies in the clinical setting. Full-scale implementation, though, has only taken place in obstetrics-gynecology in the Netherlands and in psychiatry in Australia and New Zealand. As with any conceptual framework, implementation in different contexts will require adaptations. For example, implementation in the United States will need to incorporate the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education's competencies and the recently completed milestones for each...

The Journal for Nurse Practitioners
ABSTRACT:

Background
There is a nationwide shortage of neonatal nurse practitioners (NNPs). Strategies to increase NNPs must be informed by an understanding of their career motivations and decision processes.

Methods
Mail survey of all NNPs who applied to take the initial certification exam between January 2010 and June 2011 (N = 491).

Results
Response rate was 84.6%. Most NNPs (60%, n = 214) decided to pursue education as an advanced practice nurse while in practice as an RN and 22% (N = 80) prior to...
