Theprogram continues to improve itslearning curriculum and providesa sound educational environmentfor residents and faculty physicians.“Achieving maximum length ofACGME accreditation,” says TsvetiMarkova, MD, Residency ProgramDirector, “is a testament to the qualityof the program and the commitment ofthe Department, residents, faculty andstaff. It is stimulating and challengingto work with such dedicated groupof people constantly striving forimprovement.”Robust Evaluation SystemUnder the direction of Tsveti Markova,MD, and Patrick Bridge, PhD, theResidency Program completelyreorganized its evaluation system in2004. In accordance with documentingthe residents’ progress with the ACGMEgeneral competencies, new evaluationforms were developed. The residentsreceive feedback from their faculty,peers, nurses in the clinic, and otherpreceptors. Faculty advisors haveevolved into mentors whose role is notsimply to communicate “pass” or “fail”on rotations, but to monitor residents’progress, document deficiencies in alearning contract, and discuss a planfor improvement.The new evaluation system wasdesigned to encourage and motivateany resident, regardless of skill level,and is conducted over time to discerngrowth. Overall performance isevaluated with baseline and end-ofyearthree-station Objective StructuredClinical Evaluations, in which residentsare videotaped interacting withstandardized “patients”. Residentsdiscuss results with their facultymentor and a behavioral science facultyto improve their patient-centeredapproach.We have also implemented mini-CEXevaluations, which involve evaluatinga single component of performance,like history-taking or physicalexamination skills, while workingin the clinic. These exercises assess“interpersonal skills” and “medicalknowledge” competencies. “Residentsare here to learn, and immediateconstructive feedback is crucial for theirdevelopment,” says Dr. Markova.Integrated Family Medicine RotationThe new Integrated Family MedicineRotation, facilitated by JuliannBinienda, MA, adds to the depth ofthe curriculum. Residents learn ina longitudinal format about care forelderly patients, end-of-life issues,providing care to the homeboundpatients, attending sports events asteam physicians, accessing pointof-careevidence based resources,implementing practice managementprojects, billing and coding, and givingtalks to church members or high schoolstudents on common medical topics.Residents integrate these activities intotheir continuity practice to becomewell-rounded family physicians.Several residents commented on their experiences inthe residency in 2004:“Wayne State University’s Family Medicine programis one of the best programs in Michigan. It is afriendly yet competitive and challenging program.”“Being in the WSU Family Medicine residencyprogram has been a fulfilling experience. It trainsresidents to be well rounded in all aspects of being agood physician and a friend to the patient.”“My residency experiences have allowed me to seejust how destructive certain diseases, especially selfinflicteddiseases such as smoking and obesity, canbe. I also see how essential follow up and patienteducation are for these patients.”“I’m proud to be in this residency program. It hasadded a lot to my medical information and skills.We have an excellent program director, staff, andlearning experience. I feel so confident to go out inpractice after being here for three years.”8 Department of Family Medicine 2004 Annual Report

BioMedCentral Family Practice. 2004; 5 (1): 14 (7 pages).• This pilot study examined if change in a previously identified clinical practiceguidelines (CPG) compliance factor (accessibility) would produce a significantincrease in family medicine resident knowledge and attitude toward the guidelines.The primary study intervention involved placing a summary of the Sixth Report ofthe Joint National Committee on Prevention, Detection, Evaluation, and Treatmentof High Blood Pressure (JNC VI) and the National Cholesterol Education ProgramExpert Panel on Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood Cholesterol inAdults (NCEP III) CPGs in adult patient charts in the residency ambulatory clinic sitefor a period of three months.• Pre- and post-intervention analysis failed to demonstrate a significant differencein CPG knowledge or attitude changes.• The barriers to CPG compliance were identified as: 1) lack of CPG instruction; 2)lack of critical appraisal ability; 3) insufficient time; 4) lack of CPG accessibility; and5) lack of faculty modeling. The recent findings in resident knowledge-behavior gapsmay lead the investigation of physician CPG non-compliance away from generalizedbarrier research toward the development of information that maximizes the sense ofurgency and certainty of each individual practitioner.16 Department of Family Medicine 2004 Annual Report

Interpersonal ViolenceRESEARCHFamily physicians need to recognizevictims and perpetrators of violenceJohn Porcerelli, PhD, associateprofessor and director of the Division ofBehavioral Science, has identified themajor psychological characteristics ofphysically abusive men to help doctorsrecognize and counsel them and thevictims of their violent behavior.In their multi-site study published in2003 in the Journal of the AmericanBoard of Family Practice, Dr. Porcerelli,with Patricia West, RN, PhD of St. JohnHospital and Medical Center, foundthat 10 percent of patients (bothmales and females) who used primarycare clinics reported some type ofphysical victimization in the past year.In addition, victimized women hadreported more physical complaintsand depressive symptoms than nonvictimizedwomen and men.In a follow-up study, psychologicallyabusedwomen reported morerespiratory, cardiovascular, GI anddepressive symptoms than nonabusedwomen. “Given the strongrelationship between physical andpsychological abuse and health,it’s imperative that researchers andclinicians work together to identifythe most salient characteristics ofboth victims and perpetrators to aidthe identification of these individualsand to develop effective psychosocialtreatment strategies,” Dr. Porcerellisaid.Dr. Porcerelli and his colleague,Rosemary Cogan, PhD (Texas TechUniversity) have published threerecent articles describing somesalient psychological characteristicsof partner-violent men. These studieshave identified the pathologicalpersonality characteristics and copingstrategies of men who are physicallyabusive toward their partners.John Porcerellidenial biased reporting. Instead werelied upon experienced psychologistsand clinical social workers throughoutMichigan to describe male clients intheir practices who have been violenttoward their partners. The cliniciansused a reliable and valid instrumentto describe their patients, thusstandardizing the assessment process.The result is a clinically relevantprofile of partner-violent men that canbe used by health care professionals toaid them in their assessment.(Special thanks to Amy DiCresce forassisting on this story)“Given that abusive men tend todeny their problems and their abusivebehavior, our research team decided notto use self-report instruments to assessthese individuals to eliminate their

FACULTY SERVICEEditorial and Peer Review ActivitiesWe continue to have a substantial commitment to editorial and peer reviewactivities. The editorial office of the Journal of the American Board of FamilyPractice ( is housed within the DFM, with Victoria Neale, PhD,serving as the Deputy Editor, and Kendra Schwartz, MD, serving as AssociateEditor. In 2004, the JABFP adopted ‘Rapid Review’, an on-line program formanuscript submission, peer review and tracking. This transition to a paperlessweb-based manuscript management system has resulted in greater efficiencyfor the editorial team.Many DFM faculty members volunteer their time and expertise to read andcritique submissions to journals and grant funding agencies.

FACULTY DEVELOPMENTRichard Gallagher, Tsevti MarkovaKendra Schwartz, Roulf Seifeldin andJohn Graff work at a faculty developmentworkshop.Pierre Morris, Juliann Binienda, NejlaIsrael and James Scupski participate infaculty development.Faculty DevelopmentFocus: Increasing Scholarly Productivityof Clinician-Educator FacultyThe Department of Family Medicineset a goal to advance scholarshipamong our clinician-educator facultyand has conducted research-specificfaculty development efforts focusingon developing the clinician facultyinto academic faculty. Starting in1998, the DFM has annually devotedfour half-day sessions to a presentationand a journal club on an evidencebasedclinical practice topic relevantto family medicine. The program isfacilitated by Kendra Schwartz, MD,MSPH, Victoria Neale, PhD, MPH,and Linda Roth, PhD. Presentationsare provided primarily by cliniciansand have covered topics such asdiagnosis (sort throat and depression),treatment (hypertension and type IIDM), prevention (breast and cervicalcancer screening), and prognosis (lowback pain). Journal clubs immediatelyfollow the presentations and reviewarticles on the same topics, using astructure provided by the Users’ Guideto the Medical Literature series fromJAMA.A second DFM faculty developmenteffort initiated in 2002 and facilitatedby Linda Roth, PhD and RickSeverson, PhD included a series of bimonthlyscholarly workshops. Theseworkshops covered topics such aspatient-oriented evidence that matters(POEMs), case reports, literaturereviews, writing research questions,and basic study designs.In order to assess the effectivenessof these programs, the DFM hasannually surveyed the clinician facultyregarding their attitudes towardresearch and scholarship. In 1999,29.4% of the clinician faculty reportedthey were confident in their research/scholarly skills and 35.3% reportedthat they were committed to research/scholarship. In 2004, these values roseto 60.0% who were confident in theirresearch/scholarly skills and 86.7%who were committed to research/scholarship.Scholarly Activity ProductivityThis emphasis on research andscholarly activity throughout thedepartment has not only changedattitudes, but has also resulted inincreased publications among clinicalfaculty. In 2003, an original researcharticle was published with threeclinician faculty as first-time authors.In 2004, clinician faculty authoredseven publications.Over the past three years, six clinicianfaculty have contributed to the Journalof Family Practice’s feature of systematicpatient-oriented review of researcharticles, called POEMS (patientorientedevidence that matters),facilitated by Dr. Schwartz who servedas the mentor for these activities.In the last two years, DFM clinicianfaculty have presented eight times atprofessional meetings. Additionally,by the end of this academic year, allclinical faculty will have developedan evidence-based clinical practiceseminar and delivered it to theircolleagues within the DFM at thefaculty research seminar and at FMGrand Rounds.The DFM has demonstrated a strongcommitment developing clinicianeducatorsas scholars. The culturehas changed and the faculty clearlyrecognize and support scholarlyactivity as a priority.24 Department of Family Medicine 2004 Annual Report

CONTINUING MEDICAL EDUCATION16th Annual Great Lakes Family Medicine ReviewThe 16th Annual Great Lakes Family Medicine Review was held in May, 2004,and attracted 112 attending physicians and residents from Michigan andneighboring states. Guest speakers were recruited from those highly rated atprevious review courses and were primarily from the Southeast Michigan Centerfor Continuing Medical Education (SEMCME) consortium. Speaker evaluationsfor the course were at an all time high this year with superb reviews from theaudience.The five-day course covered a wide variety of topics over a span of 5 days andwas approved for 41.75 hours of prescribed credit by the AAFP. A course textand board questions review book were also offered to the participants. Boardstylequestions were incorporated into each lecture session to make the coursemore valuable to those participants preparing to take their boards.Planning for the course began during the previous year’s meeting, with excitingideas and suggestions to make the course even better for the following year.Chaired by Maryjean Schenk, MD, the Family Medicine CME committee meetson a monthly basis to review course content and participant feedback.Nik HemadyCongratulations to the following CME Committee members for their excellentwork: Dwight Encinas, MD; Camille Fleming, MD; Nik Hemady, MD, (Chair);Farzin Namei, MD; Audrey Newell, MD; and Barry Scofield, MD.Featured DFM faculty speakers:Bruce Deschere, MD• “Treatment of Type II Diabetes”Harsha P.

UMEDivision of Medical EducationThe School of Medicine (SOM) oftenrelies on the Department of FamilyMedicine’s Division of MedicalEducation, led by Dr. RichardGallagher, for professional medicaleducation support in the developmentand implementation of the SOM’seducational efforts. More recently theSOM has taken steps to strengthen itscapacity to provide such support.In past issues of this publication,we’ve reported on the leadership ofDr. Thomas Roe in the developmentof the Clinical Medicine courserequired for freshman and sophomoremedical students. In collaborationwith co-directors Dr. Michael Stellini,Internal Medicine, and Dr. Kathy Ling-McGeorge, Pediatrics, we continue tokeep the course innovative. This courseis notable for its small group case-basedformat.Recently, there have been requests foradditional support from the medicaleducation division. In recognition of Dr.Patrick Bridge’s expertise in the areasof program and student evaluation,the Office of Academic and StudentPrograms has asked him to expand hisleadership in that office. In addition, Dr.Bridge has works with Dr. Matt Jackson,Immunology and Microbiology, and Dr.Kenneth Ginsburg, Assistant Dean forClinical Education, in the developmentand application of a program formedical students to use personaldigital assistants (PDAs) to documentstudent-patient contact. This meetsthe new requirement for institutionalre-accreditation.In October, the Office of FacultyAffairs appointed Dr. Linda Roth asthe School of Medicine’s Director ofFaculty Development. Dr. Roth workswith Dr. Stephen Lerner, AssociateDean, and Karen Crist, Director ofthe SOM’s Medical Education SupportGroup, to implement such schoolwidedevelopmental experiences as amanuscript-writing course and a semiannualSOM new faculty orientation.Finally, Drs. Gallagher and Bridge havebeen assisting with a SOM review ofYear III clerkships in preparation for theupcoming accreditation visit in 2007.The review has involved a detailedwritten report by, and meeting with,each clerkship director. Students andeach respective department chair alsoparticipate in the evaluation process.This self-study process has producedaction plans to correct identifieddeficiencies and to strengthen theclerkship experiences.The DFM is takes pride in the recognitionof our medical education division bythe School of Medicine.Tom Roe, Sharon Popp, Lisa Blackwell, Richard Gallagherand Linda Roth (not pictured: Patrick Bridge)26 Department of Family Medicine 2004 Annual Report

Division of Behavioral ScienceGMEBehavioral Science faculty are expandingtheir research program in the areas ofdepression, domestic violence, andpatient-provider interaction.Health Impact of Depressive Disordersin Urban Primary CareRecently, Division members havebegun to explore the relationshipbetween various depressive disorderswithin urban practices. With StevenHuprich, PhD, a nationally-recognizedexpert in depressive personality basedat Eastern Michigan University,we are assessing the prevalence ofdepression-related physical healthimpairment brought about by thevarious types of depression experiencedby African American women. Our aimis to improve physician recognition ofdepressive disorders in urban clinicalpractice settings.Social Factors in HealthJohn Porcerelli and Juliann BiniendaRebecca Cline, Felicity HarperLou Penner, Teri Albrecht, Juliann Biniendaand John PorcerelliRecognition and Management ofViolent VictimizationDomestic and partner-violence isan ongoing research focus of ourdivision. We have conducted multipleeducational interventions regardingassessment and management ofdomestic violence and elder abuse inprimary care settings. Residents whomwe have mentored have won awards forreports on research studies exploringthe relationship between emotionalabuse and health.In 2004, the Division welcomed twonew faculty with joint appointmentsin the Communication and BehavioralOncology Sub-Program at the BarbaraAnn Karmanos Cancer Institute.Rebecca Cline, PhD, and FelicityHarper, PhD, joined this new programwith Teri Albrecht, PhD (programleader) and Louis Penner, PhD. Theircombined areas of expertise includehealth communication, patientproviderinteraction, social supportand health, biopsychosocial aspects ofcancer treatment and survivorship, andsocial marketing approaches to healthbehavior change. They are currentlyfunded by the National Cancer Institutefor R01 research grants studying themediating role of physicians in patientaccrual to clinical trials and parentalinfluence on pediatric cancer painand stress, and an R21 project ondeveloping measurement strategiesof biopsychosocial processes andtreatment decision making.

RESEARCHJinping Xu, Joe Monsur, Monina Bartoces,Victoria Neale, Rhonda Dailey,Kendra Schwartz, Marlene LipmanPractice-based ResearchThe Division of Practice-based Research(PBR) is responsible for conductingresearch important to the primarycare of patients and also sponsors theDetroit-area practice-based researchnetwork, called MetroNet. MetroNetinfrastructure funding is covered inpart by a grant from the DHHS HealthResource Services Administration. Wejust completed a renewal applicationto maintain and expand our team formore exciting PBR projects.PBR faculty members areKendra Schwartz, MD,Victoria Neale, PhD, andJinping Xu, MD. Divisionstaff include MarleneLipman, Joe Monsur,BS, Rhonda Dailey, MD,and our newest member,Monina Bartoces, PhD.Dr. Bartoces is a recentgraduate of Universityof South Carolina, withexpertise in epidemiologyand biostatistics.Over the past year, the Division hasbeen very busy. Our accomplishmentsinclude:• Our research group published asecond report from our “sore throat”study. Dr. Xu first-authored thispaper that compared patients’ andphysicians’ assessments of sore throatsigns and symptoms.• Inspired by discussions at thenational PBRN meetings, Drs. Nealeand Schwartz published a review ofhow the Health Insurance Portabilityand Accountability Act (HIPAA)Privacy Rule affects PBR.• We completed a MetroNet study ofinfluenza vaccine acceptance duringlast year’s vaccination season (thankgoodness we weren’t trying to conductit this year), which was presented atthe fall meeting of the North AmericanPrimary Care Group.• We presented three studies at theannual Michigan Family PracticeResearch Day (FPRD) in East Lansing.o Dr. Dailey presented our BlueCross Blue Shield of MichiganFoundation-funded study of thetreatment of hypercholesterolemiain an urban family practice center.o Mr. Monsur took the firstplace award in his category forour study comparing HbA1cresults determined by standardmethodology, which requires avenipuncture sample, to a newfingerstick method.o Dr. Xu also presented adescriptive study of the naturalhistory of menopause symptoms.The Division submitted six grantproposals for PBR funding in 2004.We are waiting for responses on two.Unfortunately the remaining four werenot funded. It is sometimes difficult toconvince large funding agencies, suchas the National Institutes of Health,that PBR is not only worthwhile,but necessary. However, we’ll keeptrying.The Practice-based Research Divisionis committed to working with localphysicians and residency programsto build MetroNet and expand thefield of PBR in a diverse metropolitanarea. It is only through practice-basedresearch and the cooperation of manyprimary care physicians that we canbegin to answer clinical questions thatarise from our Detroit care. If you areinterested in joining MetroNet, or ifyou have any questions or suggestions,Dr. Schwartz can be reached at 313-577-0880.32 Department of Family Medicine 2004 Annual Report

Increasing Influenza VaccinationsRESEARCHStudy after study has shown thatamong the older population, AfricanAmericans are less likely than whitesto receive an influenza immunizationevery year — even though it is coveredby Medicare and can help them surviveinfection with the dangerous influenzaA virus. A yearlong study led WSUresearchers to a simple but effectiveway to eliminate the disparity betweenraces: Ask every patient if he or shewould like the vaccine.“We found that there was no differenceby race in the acceptance of the vaccinewhen we offered it in a systematic way,”said Kendra Schwartz, M.D., M.S.P.H.,associate professor of family medicine.A $150,000 grant from the Centers forDisease Control funded the study. Dr.Schwartz and co-investigator VictoriaNeale, Ph.D., M.P.H., directed nursesand medical assistants from sevenDetroit-area clinics to approach everyvisiting patient who was at least 65years old, and ask two questions: “Haveyou had a flu shot this season?,” and ifthe patient hadn’t, “Would you like toget your flu shot today?”Conducted during the 2003 flu season,the nurses spoke to 452 patients. Dr.Schwartz said, “Forty-seven, or about10 percent, had already received thevaccine. Of the remaining 405, 53percent were white, 39 percent wereAfrican American, and seven percentwere of another race or ethnicity. Wheneach eligible patient was offered theflu shot in a uniform and systematicmanner, there was not a significantdifference in the acceptance of thevaccine.” Overall, 61 percent of AfricanAmericans accepted the shot, comparedto 68 percent of white Americans.“We also found no significant differencesin vaccine acceptance by sex, or byeducation level. The only thing thatpredicted whether a person wouldaccept the vaccine — and it was astrong predictor — was whether theyhad a flu shot in the past,” Dr. Schwartzsaid. “Of those patients who refused thevaccine, most said they were afraid theshot would make them sick.”The researchers purposely designed theintervention to be as quick as possible,so that even the busiest of clinics couldfully participate. The seven clinics inthe study are part of MetroNet, whichis a practice-based research networkcomprised primarily of family medicineoffices in the Detroit metropolitan area.Dr. Schwartz is the director of MetroNet.The seven clinics were: North OaklandMedical Center Family Practice Center;Arbor Lane Family Physicians; Drs.Cooper and Dash, P.C.; Tobar’s FamilyMedicine, P.C.; Henry Ford MedicalCenter-Hamtramck; Madison MedicalArts Center; and University FamilyPhysicians-Royal Oak.“We believe this study indicates that ifprimary care providers make an effortto offer it to every person, AfricanAmerican and white patients are justas likely to accept the vaccine,” Dr.Schwartz said. The study results werepresented at the 2004 annual meetingof the North American Primary CareResearch Group (NAPCRG).(Special thanks to Amy DiCresce forassisting on this story)MetroNet’s first federallyfunded study wassponsored by the Centerfor Disease Control andPrevention.Joe Monsur, Kendra Schwartz, Rhonda Dailey, CDCofficer Pascale Wortley, Jinping Xu and Victoria Nealemet to discuss study recruitment

RESEARCHKendra Schwartz and John GraffCancer EpidemiologyDFM faculty are active in cancerepidemiology research, using theopportunities available throughthe Metropolitan Detroit CancerSurveillance System (MDCSS). TheMDCSS collects cancer informationin Wayne, Oakland and Macombcounties, both for the MichiganDepartment of Community Healthand the National Cancer Institute’sSurveillance, Epidemiology and EndResults (SEER) Program. KendraSchwartz, MD (Co-PI) and JohnGraff, PhD (Co-I) are leaders of thislarge MDCSS SEER research contract.A number of DFM researchers haveplayed a significant role in thecollaborations with the SEER program,utilizing MDCSS data for research:John Graff, PhD• “Assessing smoking and drinkingin the development of tongue cancerand evaluation of quality of lifefollowing different treatment options:A feasibility study”Kendra Schwartz, MD, MPH• “Determinants and Outcomes ofSurgical Treatment for Early StageBreast Cancer: Is DCIS Different thanInvasive Disease?”• “A Collaborative Case-ControlStudy of Renal Cell Carcinoma”• “Accuracy of Geocoding”Maryjean Schenk, MD, MPH, MS• “Utility of SEER Data in theDescriptive Epidemiology of HIVassociatedCancers”• “Labor Market Outcomes of CancerSurvivors”• “Feasibility of Ultra-rapid CaseAscertainment of Patients Diagnosedwith Pancreatic Cancer”• “Pancreatic Cancer GeneticEpidemiology “Consortium”Victoria Neale, PhD, MPH• “Adaptation and Quality of LifeAmong Cervical Cancer Survivors”• “Does Use of Alternative MedicineDelay Treatment of Head and NeckCancer?”Rick Severson, PhD is a very activefaculty member in the KarmanosEpidemiology unit and the PopulationStudies and Prevention Program.

Student Grant AwardsStudents win research awards forfamily medicine studiesThe Department of Family Medicinehas made a commitment to researchthrough a number of initiatives,but over the past few years, it hasmade a concerted effort to mentormedical students who are consideringan academic medical career. Thatcommitment is paying off in researchfunding for its students and facultymembers.Mehul Patel and John Staško have beenrecognized with 2004 student researchawards from the Blue Cross Blue Shieldof Michigan Foundation. Throughthese projects, they contribute to thesciences of epidemiology and familymedicine and gain early experiencein research methods and academicmedicine.Patel, under the guidance of KendraSchwartz, MD, MSPH, is studying“Racial/Ethnic Differences in CervicalCancer Survival.” He was part of a studythat determined that although theincidence of cervical cancer is higher inHispanic women as compared to non-Hispanic or African-American women,Hispanics had higher survival rates.Patel performed this work using datafrom the population-based Surveillance,Epidemiology and End Results (SEER)Program to better characterize racialand ethnic differences in outcomes forcervical cancer.Staško, under the guidance of VictoriaNeale, PhD, MPH, developed his own“Health Care Access Among Overthe-RoadTruckers.” Staško intends tointerview 30 truck drivers at variousMichigan truck stops to learn moreabout their health status and perceivedhealth care access needs. Because theyare on the road so much, truckersoften “tough it out” until they returnhome and might benefit from qualityclinics located at truck stops. Staško isinterested in collecting data to supporta possible appeal to the state to getsubsidized care for this underservedpopulation.“The leadership in WSU’s Departmentof Family Medicine is interested inintroducing the next generation offamily physicians to the vital roleof primary care research,” Dr. Nealesaid. “For the sake of our patients,we are interested in practiced-basedresearch and collaborative researchthat produces new knowledge aboutthe origins of disease and illness, howhealth is gained and lost, and how theprovision of care can be improved.”(Special thanks to Amy DiCresce forassisting on this story)Mehul Patel and Kendra SchwartzVictoria Neale and John StaskoMedical studentsinterested in research areencouraged to enroll inour one-month elective,“Research Methods inFamily Medicine”
