From the Director

Happy May! Raise your hand if you feel like the April Fool’s email was 100 years ago instead of one month ago! Lots happening so check emails to keep up!

It’s Nurses Week! Go ahead and send a kudos to a nurse using this link to nominate a nurse who has inspired you. Please nominate as many nurses as you wish but use a new form for each nurse. The nominations will be communicated to the nursing management. We will also celebrate them on twitter and on a web based bulletin board. 

Want to learn more about OUD?  See the attached information about an educational series featuring Duke Med Peds grad Dr. Dana Clifton!

Kudos
Kudos this week to Hannah Florian from Cameron Strong for a great clinical diagnosis of catatonia on a patient  she evaluated, and also to Lynette Staplefoot-Boynton from Gregg Robbins-Welty for above and beyond care of a patient. Other kudos to Nate Goodwin for an awesome Cohen Conference and Dr. Jenny  Van Kirk for her Grand Rounds presentation of her resident research (sponsored by a Stead Grant). Kudos to Aaron Hein from Tingrui Zhao for helping out on night float, to Kristen Corey for caring for two very sick outpatients, Chelsea Gaviola for superb patient care at the DOC and Pooja Patel for being a great DOC lead (all from Komal Safdar), and to Yoli Guzman from Hayley Cunningham for awesome outpatient care while working as a Duke GM SAR!

Congratulations to Mary-Jo Obeid on her engagement and to Matt and Emily Abbott on the birth of Olivia Ryan Abbott, Duke IM Class of 2048.

Clinic Corner: DOC 

Contributed by Lynn Bowlby

Thanks again to everyone who provided input to and/or participated in the DOC DREAMS 3 kick-off retreat!  And a special thanks to Gina Rogers from Duke Learning & Organizational Development for facilitating, and to Robin Byrd for coordinating -- as well as supporting the work to follow.

We are currently looking for volunteers who would be interested in being a part of the workgroups that will be forming to implement these ideas around Streamlining Paperwork, Organizing Diabetes Care, Understanding Community Resources, Improving Advanced Care Planning, and Standardizing SAR/Intern Transitions.

Next steps will then include convening these workgroups, and getting started on making what we do, even better! See full notes in event email.

  • Presentations are led by two specialists, ex: cardiology and hematology discuss shared cases related to cardio-oncology

  • Introduction – 2-3 minutes, Case description – 15 minutes, Literature review or discussion – 10 minutes, Follow up questions – 5 minutes

For more information on joining the monthly Cardio-Oncology conference rounds, please contact June Weston june.weston@duke.edu.

Duke Narrative Medicine Group Meeting 
The Duke Narrative Medicine group has been on pause for a while due to COVID, however they will be hosting their next meeting in one month! For those of you who are not familiar, we typically host sessions once every few months where residents can meet to share and discuss any pieces of narrative medicine that we have written. These meetings are a great opportunity to bond with your fellow residents and reflect on meaningful or difficult experiences. As a bonus, Dr. G will be attending and sharing his perspective and wisdom with us as well.

Bringing something that you have written is not requirement to participate in the meeting, however if there is a piece that you would like to share we would definitely encourage you to present it if you feel comfortable! You are welcome to share something from any medium (poem, short story, etc.), and it can be on any topic that you choose. We often will provide themes to serve as a prompt for anyone who would like to participate but is looking for a little bit of inspiration/motivation, and for this meeting we have two: "New beginnings" and "Just for fun" - again, these themes are completely optional, and feel free to share anything you have written regardless of topic.

To ensure that everyone who would like to present has time to do so (and to keep us within Duke's guidelines for in-person gatherings), we can only have a maximum of 10 participants for this session. If you are interested in participating, please send me an email to let me know! While we typically have food provided for us at these sessions we are unable to do so for the time being due to restrictions from Duke, however if this changes between now and the meeting we will let you know.

If you have any questions, feel free to email Timothy Hopper, Austin Wesevich, or Sean Taasan.

What: Narrative Medicine meeting - come share anything you have written!
When: Wednesday, May 5 at 6 p.m.
Where: TBD (will be in-person at DUH)

Mandarin-Speaking Residents needed for Health Fair
APAMSA, the Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association, at the Duke School of Medicine is looking for medical residents who speak Mandarin Chinese to volunteer with our Virtual Chinese Health Fair that is occurring Thursday May 27th from 3-5 pm virtually over Zoom. The Health Fair targets the local Chinese population in Durham and is being advertised via various community leaders.

The fair will start with multiple video lectures on relevant health issues in the Asian community (i.e. depression, COVID, diabetes) and will be followed by short one-on-one consults with doctors. Your responsibility would be to engage in these short 5 to 10 minute discussions with an individual or family to answer any questions about the lecture content or in general. You would be supervised under Dr. Amy Lee (Med-Peds). For more information please reach out to Nicky Chung nicky.chung@duke.edu.
