About the Discussion Group

We invite you to join in this opportunity to follow up on the July 9 plenary session, “Pathology Informatics Essentials for Residents (PIER) - Informatics Work Group Update.” Learn more about PIER, a research-based instructional resource guide developed jointly by the APC, API and CAP. PIER presents up-to-date informatics topics and other key training elements for PRODS and faculty to effectively implement informatics training and meet the ACGME informatics milestone requirements.

 

Participants will have a hands-on opportunity to work with the Pathology Informatics Essentials for Residents - Instructional Resource Guide - July 2014 Release 0 as lead authors explain the guide and what’s to come. Work together to analyze your programs’ readiness and capacity to implement informatics training using the Pathology Informatics Training Readiness Checklist and exchange useful planning and approach ideas. Deepen your knowledge and understanding of informatics training approaches, and identify the degree to which PIER will be helpful to furthering your program’s approach to informatics training in collaboration with the lead authors and your colleagues.

 

As a result of attending the discussion group, you will:

  • Develop an understanding of PIER and how it can be applied to effectively implement informatics training and meet the ACGME informatics milestone requirements.

  • Determine PROD readiness, capacity and willingness to consider and use PIER to implement or further develop informatics training for residents.

Tablets/Laptops

Bring your tablet or laptop for easy electronic access to PIER materials during the Discussion Group. A limited number of hard copies of the PIER Instructional Resource Guide will be available at the session.
