Gold Summit Poster Sessions

Sunday, Oct. 27 | 5:30-6:45 p.m
Monday, Oct. 28 | 4:00-6:00 p.m

The Gold Foundation is thrilled to share research and projects from our wide Gold community at two Poster Sessions held during the Gold Humanism Summit. This work is divided into three themes: (1) Increasing Engagement with Community (2) Unique Educational Initiatives (3) Wellness, Resilience, and Prevention of Burnout. Our Sunday Poster Session will be held on Sunday evening following GHHS & MTL Symposium presentations. Our Monday Poster Session will be held 4-6 p.m. during the Meet the Author Session. The Poster Sessions will feature research and projects by our Gold Humanism Honor Society members and Mapping the Landscape teams, as well as our wider Gold community, including those that have received Gold fellowships, grants, or recognition.


The Poster Sessions will be held in the Ocean’s Foyer at the Renaissance SeaWorld Orlando.

Increasing Engagement with Community

Medical students, healthcare trainees and practitioners may have little familiarity with the diverse cultures of the patients they serve. This can lead to poor communication, challenges to adherence, and decreased physician satisfaction at work. Improved education and cultural awareness can increase engagement and foster better understanding between the communities and the clinicians who serve them.

Unique Educational Initiatives

A wide variety of curricula and educational interventions have been created to advance medical humanism. This section will include methods for using creative arts like writing, drawing, and music to help patients, physicians, and nurses understand their medical experiences. Presenters will share educational initiatives that integrate ethics, advocacy, and humanism into the educational and professional development of training clinicians, as well as innovative ways to use humanism to address some of the more insidious and debilitating aspects of training (such as the “hidden curriculum”) that disrupt the training of all medical professionals.  Finally, a discussion of best practices for using technology with patients in clinical settings and on-line will tackle the seeming paradox of melding humanism and technology.

Wellness, Resilience, and Prevention of Burnout

The first half of this session will focus on the epidemic of burnout- why we are experiencing it and some tools to combat it in our/one’s own personal and professional space.  We will discuss some of the incivility that is found in the healthcare workplace focusing on nurse-to-nurse hostility and workplace violence. Evidence will be presented about physician suicide in two very different hospital systems, one in the U.S. and one in the Netherlands.  We will review the challenges to and value of collaborative practice in healthcare as well as specific ways to advance professionalism for residents and fellows.

The second half of this session will address solutions to improve healthcare provider wellness, including suggestions for local retreats/events.  There will be a view into promoting resilience in residents and ways to use human to make it easier to show appreciation to residents using IT.  This session will end with “easy evidenced-based tools” to combat burnout including a short mindfulness technique
