1 The Obstetrical Society of Philadelphia Newsletter SEPTEMBER 2011 Vol. 36, No. 1 am proud and honored to succeed I Susan Kaufman as the 123rd president of the Obstetrical Society of Philadelphia. Susan was an outstanding leader this past year and is to be commended for a job well-done. My involvement with the Obstetrical Society began in the fall of Dr. Jan Schneider, Chairman of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Medical College of Pennsylvania, invited me to attend monthly Council meetings as the medical-legal representative. At the time, Dr. Schneider felt that my background as a lawyer and doctor was unique. I originally came to Philadelphia to attend law school at the University of Pennsylvania, where I received a J.D. degree. Following graduation, I worked in the litigation department IN THIS PAGE 1-2 PAGE 2-3 PAGE 4 PAGE 5 PAGE 6-7 PAGE 8-10 PAGE 11 PAGE 12 President s Message Issue President s Address Past President s Address Greetings, October Speaker Obstetrical Care Policy Discussion Resident Happenings Society Announcements Job Openings Council Members of a Philadelphia law firm and was exposed to hospital law and medical malpractice litigation. In the lante seventies, particularly in Philadelphia, medical malpractice litigation began to escalate. Arbitration panels were established in an effort to mediate malpractice claims and to avoid the expense of a jury trial. Contrary to expectations, the arbitration system failed as unhappy litigants could still pursue and indeed did pursue their right to a jury trial. Over the past twenty-five years we have gone from crisis to crisis as we have attempted to deal with the issue of affordable malpractice insurance. Many physicians left the state to practice in areas where malpractice insurance was available at lesser rates. Although the number of malpractice cases filed in Pennsylvania decreased in 2010, the escalating costs associated with the practice of medicine still remain a constant. We need meaningful liability reforms to help curb these costs. As physicians, we must place pressure on our legislators to bring about these needed changes. The Society s newsletter will report changes that are occurring on the legislative front line in Harrisburg.

2 President s Message continued from page 1 Since leaving the practice of law to attend medical school and becoming an obstetrician-gynecologist, I have seen significant changes in the practice of law and medicine. Litigation fears, physician stress, and the practice of defensive medicine have escalated. More is expected of the physician than ever before. We are charged with adapting to new technology, new patient-safety guidelines and its added paperwork, conversion to mandatory EMR documentation and coding, and cost containment mandates. Gone are the days of the solo practitioner and small group practice. Hospital practice has shifted to care by hospitalists and laborists. Residency work hours have been reduced, raising concern about the ability of the residents to achieve core competencies with fewer training hours. My goal for the upcoming year is to provide our members, residents, and guests with a stimulating educational program. The Society will now be offering CME credit for meetings. I hope to increase membership and meeting attendance by members, residents and guests from other specialties. Our speakers for the monthly programs are leaders in the fields of urogynecology, maternal-fetal medicine, hematology-oncology, gynecologic oncology, endocrinology and reproductive endocrinology. The Society will remain committed to sponsoring and promoting educational opportunities for the community. A basic ob-ultrasound course will be offered for residents over the summer, Our October meeting coincides with the District III annual meeting in Philadelphia. I hope to continue the Society s involvement in the March of Dimes program, Resident Education Day, the spring Perinatal Conference and the Resident Review Course. I hope that you will make the time to attend as many of our meetings as possible. Better yet, bring a colleague or two. You will not be disappointed. Jane Porcelan PLEASE NOTE: CME is now available for ObSociety Meetings Past President s Message To our Membership and All Interested Physicians: This will be my last President s letter to you, or actually, my first exofficio letter. I am honored to have served as the 122nd President of the Obstetrical Society of Philadelphia. This Society, established in 1867, is truly a tri-state society, comprised of physicians in private practice, academic faculty, residents, and medical students. We recently discovered some of the old minutes, which were case discussions dating back to the 1800 s. We presented a case at each of our meetings and found that that our concerns are similar to those of our colleagues of long ago. We will continue to present passages from the original minutes at future meetings. I set a long list of goals for this past year and I am proud to say that we accomplished many of them. These accomplishments could not have been done without our extremely dedicated Executive Secretary, Teri Wiseley. She works countless hours to ensure that everything is organized, and that there is follow through, in order that we accomplish all the work there is to be done. Teri, thank you very much! I also want to thank my Council for all of their time and hard work. Council members give many hours to these volunteer positions and the organization would not exist and function without their commitment. One of my most important goals was to increase attendance at meetings. This year we had over 100 attendees at all the meetings except one. In order to keep this organization vibrant and meaningful, members and visitors must attend the meetings. We need the support and interest of the chair people of our hospital departments to encourage their faculty/attending physicians to participate. We strive to invite renowned speakers and to promote academic and social interaction. We can only accomplish this if YOU are there. Moving forward, we want to keep up the momentum and see the attendance continue to rise. Dr. Porcelan has invited a superb group of speakers for the year. I was determined not only to increase attending physician attendance, but also resident attendance. Where else can residents interact with residents from other programs, their own attending physicians, and enjoy a free meal? We accomplished this goal and added two new residency programs, bringing the total number of involved programs to 16. Residents are our future and we must engage them from the beginning of their training. We appreciate the support of the residency directors and the ob society of philadelphia VOLUME 36-ISSUE 1 PAGE 2

3 Past President s Message continued from page 2 program coordinators. Dr. Switzer from Jefferson and Dr. Tew from Cooper represented the residents on the Council this year. Their input was appreciated. We plan to continue the list-serve they started to maintain direct contact with the residents in the tri-state area. Just like all other professional organizations, we are fighting to retain our members. While I believe that our membership should be higher, proportional to the number of practicing Ob/Gyns in the tri-state area, we have been able to keep the total number stable, including resignations and new members. I am thrilled that we added about 7 new members this year. Please continue to join our wonderful historical organization. I also wanted to reach out and forge relationships with the other Ob/Gyn M. Woodland assists Susan Kaufman into the President s Robe. organizations in our area, and to work more closely with District III ACOG. Our organization can become a vehicle to publicize local courses, job openings, and special activities of our members. The Obstetrical Society can be the organization that other groups go to for information and assistance. We will establish our presence as a leader in Ob/Gyn and the medical arena. One of the many important services that we can offer to our members is to provide CME credit. Unfortunately, for the last 2 years we were not able to offer this academic service. I am pleased to notify the membership that as of October we will again provide CME for our meetings. We will do this through Virtua Hospital in Voorhees, New Jersey and the Medical Society of New Jersey. This will allow you to earn approximately 7 (or possibly more as we are trying for 1.5 credits per meeting) credits, if you attend all of the meetings. These credits, plus the 25 for our continuing education articles, definitely places one in a comfortable zone for the required CME credits that are needed for each year. This was the first year that we taped all the lectures from October to May. With the exception of Dr. Iglesia s lecture, which contained very sensitive material, all the lectures are posted on the website, for members to view. We will continue taping the lectures this year, so be sure to visit our website. It has been improved to make it more user friendly and comprehensive. Our newsletter has been expanded and improved over the last three years. Please submit interesting information about your work, volunteer work, etc, that you would like to share with your colleagues. We were very fortunate to have dedicated support from our pharmaceutical and equipment companies this past year. I want to thank them very much for their interest and attendance. We look forward to your presence again this coming year. The specialty of Obstetrics and Gynecology is changing and expanding very rapidly. In my own area of gynecology, I care for infants up to 90+ women. I care for females with a range of disabilities and genetic disorders. I care for transsexual women. I care for females with PCOS, PMS, Eating Disorders, Ovarian Failure, Mullerian Anomalies, Bleeding Disorders, Menopausal Issues, Sexual Concerns, ETC. This list is much more extenisve than the one I started with in residency. We need to share everything we learn and everything we do with our colleagues so that we can continue to improve the care we provide to our patients and nurture ourselves as physicians. Thus I cycle back to the beginning of the Obstetrical Society, when the meetings consisted of case presentations that allowed providers to learn from one another and promoted better patient care. I sincerely hope to see YOU at our meetings starting in October. I am honored to turn the leadership of this great organization over to Dr. Jane Porcelan. Thank you. Dr. Susan Kaufman Past Presidents Al Peters, Mark B. Woodland, Joel Noumoff, Ann Honebrink, Susan Kaufman, Owen Montgomery, Leonore Huppert, Jacqueline Gutmann the ob society of philadelphia VOLUME 36-ISSUE 1 PAGE 3

4 Membership Director Having trained and practiced locally my entire career, the Philadelphia Obstetrical Society has for me always played a major role in the OB/GYN community of Philadelphia. It has been instrumental and innovative in serving our community with continued medical education and networking opportunities for the many resident and attending physicians in the area... and still is. For these and many other reasons, it is my pleasure to join the Council of the Society as membership director. I hope to follow Dr Widzer s excellent lead in continuing the growth and viability of the society by attracting more OB/GYNs in the area to the membership. Ben Gocial, MD From the Editor Greetings!

5 Obstetrical Care Policy Discussion Maternal and Child Health Outcomes and the OB Workforce Society On June 14, 2011, a policy discussion event was hosted by the Public Health Section of the Philadelphia College of Physicians to address the obstetrical crisis in Philadelphia. The event was organized by Mona Sarfaty, MD, MPH, Associate Professor in the Department of Family & Community Medicine and the School of Population Health at Thomas Jefferson University on behalf of the Public Health Section of the Philadelphia College of Physicians. A group of over 35 stakeholders, including representatives of the Philadelphia Obstetrical Society, were invited to lectures that reviewed some of the factors effecting obstetrical care in Philadelphia from five speakers. Jacqueline Kohl, MD, MPH, a recent graduate of Thomas Jefferson University, discussed her qualitative Public Health research on the maternal health workforce shortages in southeast Pennsylvania. Her work was based upon her interviews with members of the workforce. Julie Cristol, CNM, MSN, the Director at Greater Philadelphia Health Action for 7 years, discussed the need for low risk prenatal care alternatives in Philadelphia. Jack Ludmir, MD, Professor and Chair of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Pennsylvania Hospital, and Chair of the Governing Council for Maternal and Child Health for the American Hospital Association, discussed the successful implementation of a Laborist program at Pennsylvania hospital. Larry Light, Esq., the Vice President for Political Affairs of the PA Medical Society is creating a physician grassroots advocacy network and heads the PA MED Society political action committee. Mr. Light reviewed past prospective changes in the Philadelphia malpractice environment. Damien Croft, MD, MPH, Asst. Proffessor at Drexel University College of Medicine discussed his MPH capstone research recently published in Academic Medicine: Academic Obstetrics Gynecology Departments in the City of Philadelphia: Are the Wheels Coming Off? He demonstrated the decline in access to obstetrical services in the city; only academic medical centers are still delivering babies in Philadelphia. Dr. Croft has since started his Maternal-Fetal Medicine fellowship in Boston. After the organized talks, obstetricians, midwives, community leaders, and public health experts broke into small groups to brainstorm and discuss potential short and long term solutions to the stated problems. Dr. Sarfaty plans to reconvene this group of stakeholders and hopes to develop an actionable plan. Short Term Solutions Communication & Information Sharing - Better communication between community health clinics and delivery sites - Universal evidence based protocols (available on the web) - Tracking, date/information sharing via low tech means (patient carried prenatal card) - City wide EMR database Operations and Process - Increase women getting post partum care by giving appointments at hospital delivery discharge - Improve communication within institutions with interprofessional teams Geographic Distribution of Services - Better geographic distribution of services (reach underserved areas identified by GIS mapping) - Hire more nurse midwives,increase the number of hospitals where CNMs perform deliveries - A (EMS) transportation policy that allows women to deliver near where they received prenatal care Appropriate Models of Care - Create low risk prenatal care delivery options - Birthing center linked with tertiary care centers - Estabish a model birthing center in Philadelphia (like Booth Maternity Hospital) - Maternity urgent care - Incentives to keep OB providers in the City - New models of care (i.e. laborists) - Create a women s hospital State Level Actions - Get state to set up grant program to pursue some of these ideas (go through Secretary of Policy) Long Term Solutions Appropriate Health Care Services for Women - Increase the number of women who get postpartum home visit and interconceptually focused postpartum care - Greater emphasis on women s health care needs Evaluation - Evaluate outcomes based on sharing data - Collaborative efforts to assess outcomes Address State Policy - Formation of state Maternal Child Health policy (including preconception, interconception, family planning) - Statewide blueprint on Maternal Child Health policy - Change via state agencies rather than legislation - Reimbursement for care of the undocumented Notes by Jason K.

7 Resident Happenings Institutions that participated in Residents Education Day: Christiana Cooper Crozer Drexel Einstein HUP Jefferson Lankenau Lehigh Valley Penna Hospital Phila College Osteopathic Medicine Reading Hospital Temple York Hospital ACGME New Duty Hours: More to Learn in Less Time Mark B. Woodland, MS, MD Associate Dean GME Drexel University College of Medicine July is always a difficult time for medical education as most medical students move from their second into their third year (the primary clinical training year) and senior medical students transition into their new roles as interns. The internship year evokes a myriad of emotions in those who have just graduated from their senior year of medical school and are once again starting at the bottom of the totem pole. In addition, many have relocated and need to master a huge amount of material, not only in clinical care, but in logistics, time efficiency, and professionalism. This year the intern s plight is exacerbated by having less time to accomplish these adjustments. Sura Nualpradid / FreeDigitalPhotos.net The ACGME s (Accreditation Council on Graduate Medical Education) new duty hour requirements for interns restrict intern activity to no more than 16 hours at a time. Interns are also required to have 8-10 hours off between shifts. These changes were implemented in an effort to avoid the situation in which the lowest person in the chain of command carries the bulk of the grunt work. On a medical team, this arrangement translates to the least experienced doing more of the most critical work. The new work hour limitation is a direct attempt to change this paradigm and facilitate an intern s approach not only to clinical care, but also programs approach to transitions in care, supervision and clinical hierarchy. The change was prompted by the public and political outcry regarding resident duty hours and patient safety. The idea that mandated changes in interns work hours will bring about the desired effects sounds plausible on paper, but has not yet been proven in all areas of training. Some specialties already have stricter duty hours such as anesthesiology and emergency medicine. The feedback from the specialties that have enforced stricter duty hours (anesthesiology and emergency medicine) has been mostly positive, but is limited. The difficulty is in specialties like OBGYN that depend on continuity of care with patients and a provider s ability to react to situations instinctively. There are many questions still to be answered. Will new duty hour limits mean we should increase the years spent in residency? Will new limitations change how we approach and provide clinical care? How do new limits impact our training programs and clinical coverage? And will these changes ultimately make a big difference in patient safety? We shall see. the ob society of philadelphia VOLUME 36-ISSUE 1 PAGE 7
