Healthcare is a field in which things are constantly changing and improving, and GBMC HealthCare is always working to test and adopt best practices in patient care. In this environment, physicians and nurses need to stay on top of their fields, making continuing medical education (CME) and the John E. Savage Medical Library (on-site at GBMC) two essential resources for our clinical team.
GBMC’s annual Golf Classic underwrites nursing and medical staff CME and the latest publications for the Medical Library.
Dr. John Adams Compassionate Caregiving Rounds, a multidisciplinary forum in which clinical caregivers discuss difficult emotional and social issues that arise in caring for patients, is just one such CME opportunity. During these sessions, clinical and non-clinical staff members have the opportunity to openly discuss important social and emotional aspects of caring for patients.
As a Neonatologist in Pediatrics, I felt I already worked in one of the most caring fields. But I’ve been attending the John Adams Rounds since their start here at GBMC, and I believe that, because of them, I have become an even more compassionate, nurturing and involved physician. These Rounds are unique in that they bring standing-room-only staff from so many disciplines in the hospital together to discuss important social and emotional aspects of caring for patients, their families and caregivers, and each other. I learn something new each time I attend, and they are worth every minute of every discussion we have.” -- Dr. Maria Pane
