One of the benefits of being a part of the FPIN network is receiving support as you prepare your proposals and presentations for national conferences. What better venue is there than a national conference to share how you are actively using FPIN at your program?

As part of this service to our members, we wanted to go ahead and let you know about a few of these opportunities that are quickly approaching!

PDW (Program Directors Workshop) and RPS (Residency Program Solutions) proposal deadline: Friday, August 14th.
STFM (Society of Teachers of Family Medicine) Annual Conference proposal deadline: Monday, September 14th.

Again, if you are planning on presenting a session relating to FPIN, please let us know! FPIN offers free presentation support for members including assistance with slides, posters, and materials. We are also available for consultation calls to discuss your proposals.

Get residents involved in the scholarship of integration by writing a letter to the editor of Evidence-Based Practice. EBP is nationally and internationally disseminated to other FPIN programs and libraries. Writing a letter to the editor provides residents with the unique opportunity to synthesize knowledge, incorporate real life experience and back it with the best available evidence.

HelpDesk Answers (HDAs) are brief, structured, evidence-based answers to clinical questions written by physicians for physicians. HDAs are 450 to 600 words, drawing from the best available recent evidence including: meta-analyses, evidence-based guidelines, or original research.
HDAs are peer reviewed and published in Evidence-Based Practice.

The Clinical Inquiry (CI) project is designed for faculty with protected time for writing. Faculty interested in writing a CI must first successfully write and publish two HelpDesk Answers before beginning a CI. This rigorous writing project takes about 40-50 hours over 9-12 months to complete. CI’s are published in The Journal of Family Practice, American Family Physician, and Evidence-Based Practice.

PURLs (Priority Updates from the Research Literature) distill the latest literature to those few articles that are relevant, practice-changing, and able to be implemented immediately.
The PURLS system was developed in a collaborative partnership of the FPIN and The Journal of Family Practice.
