NYIT Hosts Online Learning Forum
Nov 08, 2013

"We can sit here and say it's not going to happen, but the reality is that it is happening," Director of Technology-Based Learning Systems Stan Silverman said in a forum, covered by Newsday, that focused on the growth of online learning at colleges and school districts.

Silverman was one of four panelists at the forum, sponsored by the Long Island Regional Advisory Council on Higher Education, or LIRACHE. He and others agreed that the use of web-based courses and online instruction changes the role of faculty but also could result in learning improvements and more access to education.

 
Bravo Advises Freshmen to Explore Choices
Nov 08, 2013

"While college freshmen might change their career goals often, it is wise to recognize that each class taken, club joined, project completed, event attended, and person met could ultimately offer clues to what you might really love to do for a career," says Assistant Dean of Career Services Amy Bravo in a blog by NerdScholar, the educational branch of NerdWallet, about career advice for freshmen.

Bravo suggests freshmen explore interests and take advantage of the freedom to take a variety of classes that can help strengthen basic skills. Marketing, writing, public speaking, and design courses are good choices, says Bravo.

 
Blazey: Tablets Can Help Physicians Improve Patient Care
Nov 06, 2013

"You can access electronic medical records while not having a desktop or laptop computer between you and the patient," says College of Osteopathic Medicine Assistant Professor William Blazey, DO, in an online article for Medical Office Today about how physicians are using tablets in their practices. Blazey adds that tablet also allow him to access images that can help patients understand a diagnosis or treatment.

"I can review medications and their interactions in real time to avoid potential interactions," he adds. "An ePrescription service directly allows for prescriptions to be sent to a pharmacy and confirmed." 

 
Blazey: Cancer Prevention Tips for Men
Nov 01, 2013

"If testicular cancer runs in your family, it's vital to be screened frequently, especially if your relative was diagnosed young," says College of Osteopathic Medicine Assistant Professor William Blazey, D.O., in Men's Fitness. "If they were diagnosed later in life, environmental causes -- like exposure to radiation -- may be a factor."

Blazey advises men to decrease stress "wherever you can" and avoid smoking as preventative measures for prostate cancer, and he urges men to talk to their doctors about exams and tests. "The best person to detect testicular cancer is you, via a self-exam," adds Blazey. "Once a month, in the shower, check yourself to see if you feel any lumps, bumps or pain. If you do, go right to a doctor."

 
Dean Patricia Chute Notes Expertise Required for Pediatric Audiologists

Audiologists who handle adult cases may not have the special skills necessary to see pediatric patients, says School of Health Professions Dean Patricia Chute, Ed.D. in the cover story of the November issue of The Hearing Journal.  

“Some of the things you do with adults can translate to children, but much of it cannot,” says Chute, an expert in the audiology field. “Fitting a hearing aid on a 25-year-old is very different than fitting an aid on a one-year-old. One of them can tell you what he hears while with the other one, you have to observe and get feedback from parents.”

In “Pediatric Audiologist Shortage Leaves Providers Searching for a Solution,” Chute adds that teleaudiology may help some pediatric patients who don’t have access to a specialist. Yet, she adds, adequate time counseling parents is paramount if telerehabilitation is to be successful.

 
Accelerated Family Medicine: Graduating Competent Physicians
Oct 29, 2013

"At our medical school, we are in our second year of an accredited accelerated medical education continuum by presenting a '3+3' primary care curriculum that smoothly dovetails an intensive three-year long medical school program followed by a three-year family medicine residency in hospitals committed to such innovative endeavors," writes College of Osteopathic Medicine Dean Wolfgang Gilliar, D.O., in the comments section (comment #13) of a New York Times article on accelerated medical school programs.

"The student will be able to enter a family medicine residency with an ADDITIONAL skill set acquired in those three medical school years. The first cohort of students, soon to be medical residents, report a course of professional study that has great personal appeal due to the clear approach, well laid-out objectives and competencies to be achieved, and a sense of pride in being at the forefront of innovation in medical education."

 
Hall Discusses PT Home Care
Oct 26, 2013
advance magazine

School of Health Professions Assistant Professor Cheryl Hall, PT, DHSc, tells ADVANCE for Physical Therapy & Rehab Medicine that home health care may affect physical therapists' personal energy. "Sometimes, personal energy might be challenged because of the caseload, commute or feeling of 'being on the run,' says Hall, an early intervention evaluator and home-based service provider. "There are times when energy can be affected by the energy of others in the home health care setting. And of course, the physical requirements of the job can also play into a therapist's energy level."

Hall says therapists should keep hydrated, eat healthy foods, exercise, and keep current with paperwork to help reduce job stress. She also thinks therapists may feel frustrated by home health care situations if patients' families fail to see progress in a child's treatment or are detached from the therapy process. 

In those cases, effective communication and persistence are key. "A good tactic is to positively point out how much their input matters," says Hall. "We're there for a short time during the day a few times a week, but caregivers are with the patient the rest of the time. I like to reinforce the need for consistency, and explain why that's important."

"The common thread among all of the students in the program is their motivation to not just take care of a singe person- they want to help a community," says College of Osteopathic Medicine Assistant Professor William Blazey in Long Island Business News (subscription required), referring to students in the school's accelerated medical program geared toward those who want to practice family medicine.

"They see the bigger point of medicine." Blazey, fourth-year student Ankbur Bhambri and alumna Bernadette Riley say they are drawn to family medicine, despite its lower salary, because want to spend more time with their patients, practice broadly, and coordinate their care.
