    Faculty on legalizing medical marijuana

    Stephen Gambescia, PhD, a clinical professor in the Health Administration department, authored a column for Inside Sources about the “most compassionate” way for states to legalize medical marijuana is to establish laws that growing, distribution, advertising and sale be handled by healthcare nonprofits, such as university research hospitals, hospital systems or substance abuse and behavior health rehabilitation nonprofits. It was picked up by a number of outlets on Jan. 6, including Newsday, Savannah Morning News (Savannah, Georgia) and The Pueblo Chieftain (Pueblo, Colorado).

    Faculty to Give Invited Talk

    "An Formal Methods Framework to Support Medical Device Usability with respect to the End User’s Tasks, Motor Capabilities and Signifier Interpretation"

    Ellen J. Bass, PhD, the chair of the Department of Health Systems and Sciences Research, professor in the Department of Information Science and affiliate professor in the School of Biomedical Engineering, Science and Health Systems at Drexel will give a lecture on January 28, 2020 at Tel-Aviv University.

    Abstract: Medical devices continue to be complicated to employ, maintain, and troubleshoot when operational or maintenance-related events occur. Model-based design methods could help to inform usability early in the development process. One possible approach is the use of formal methods to support design. Extant frameworks at the intersection of human factors and formal methods have mainly focused on displays, widgets, and control logic as the set of human-system components that shape normative end-user task behavior. Formal verification has proven useful for evaluating some aspects of accuracy, understandability, time efficiency, error tolerance and completeness. However, few researchers have considered the full system including documentation; end-user interpretation of audible, visual and haptic displays; configurable hardware; and a broad range of interactions among human-interactive system elements.

    This talk will present an approach, measures and tools that incorporate psychological theory to support the application of model checking analyses for uncovering usability problems. Applications in medical device design will be presented.

    What is a CRNA?

    So, what is a Nurse Anesthetist?

    Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists, CRNAs, are highly trained professionals that have obtained an undergraduate bachelor's in nursing, and have worked in the ICU prior to applying for graduate anesthesia school. Upon completion of a MSN or doctorate degree in anesthesia, they have on average seven to eight years of education, over 2000+ hours of providing anesthesia prior to taking boards (not including greater than two years of ICU experience).

    CRNAs provide anesthetics to patients in every practice setting, and for every type of surgery or procedure. They are the sole anesthesia providers in nearly all rural hospitals, and the main provider of anesthesia to the men and women serving in the U.S. Armed Forces.

The students have an inspiring sense of purpose, and they are leading positive change in healthcare locally, nationally and globally," said CNHP Dean Laura N. Gitlin, PhD.

  • Newest EMT Training class enrolled

    News from the Emergency Medical Services Department.

    On January 2, 2020, the Emergency Medical Services Department proudly enrolled the 17th and 18th EMT class.

    This month also marks the five-year anniversary of the recreation of the EMS Training program at Drexel University. We enrolled the first EMT class in 2015 after the closure of the former EMS program in 2008. Those 15 students who enrolled in 2015 have all attained tremendous success. Many of those graduates went on to medical school or completed physician assistant programs in the area while others continue to be employed in local EMS or fire departments. They are providing excellent care and proudly representing Drexel University.

    We are excited by the demographic makeup of the newest classes. Of the two we enrolled last week, 12 learners are taking the traditional EMT program option and 17, the hybrid. Eight are full-time Drexel and two are University of Pennsylvania students. and we continue to draw students from local universities. These students are scheduled to complete their course in May 2020. Our enrollment numbers are on an upward trend.

    Finally, we would like to congratulate the December 2019 EMT program graduates. All eleven students completed National Registry Psychomotor testing with ease and are now preparing for cognitive valuations at the national level.

    EMT program re-accreditation is scheduled for June 2020. This is certainly a proud time for the Drexel University's Emergency Medical Services Department.

    Staff member gets involved in research

    The people who participate in the research process aren't just academics, healthcare professionals and patients through clinical trials. CNHP staff members can also make meaningful contributions to deciding what gets funded.

    Rose Ann DiMaria-Ghalili, PhD, a professor, assistant dean for Interprofessional and Collaborative Research and researcher, saw that a professional staff member, Roberta Perry, assistant director of marketing and communications, could be a valuable resource because of her experience as a thyroid cancer survivor and patient advocate. She recommended that Perry look into applying to become a Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) merit reviewer.

    PCORI helps people make informed healthcare decisions and improves healthcare delivery and outcomes by producing and promoting high-integrity, evidence-based information that comes from research guided by patients, caregivers and the broader healthcare community. PCORI conducts rigorous merit reviews of all applications for funding and asks members of the merit reviewer community to help in the selection process. To select high-quality scientific research, while ensuring patient-centeredness, PCORI's review process is distinguished by the full participation of scientists, patients and other healthcare stakeholders.

    Perry has been accepted as a reviewer and is looking forward to the training and when she may be asked to review funding applications. 

    Both DiMaria-Ghalili and Dean Gitlin are excited to see professional staff members participating in research in this and other ways.
