Clinically Speaking

Summer 2018

Highlighting the important work of the faculty in the University of Colorado School of Medicine to improve care delivery, clinical quality and patient safety.

It’s not easy sitting back and watching a child sick with bronchiolitis and not intervening. Nor is it easy working with families and refugees who have experienced significant trauma and knowing the system itself can impede healing. But hard work is exactly what our clinicians do, every - single - day. In this issue we share the stories of pediatrician Amy Tyler and psychiatrist Daniel Savin and how their hard work has added up to better outcomes for patients. And, the Project Core team is sharing its initial results. Our primary care lead and specialists from Rheumatology and Endocrinology have dug deep into the experience of patient referrals. In the process, they’ve improved patient experience and helped facilitate better relationships between providers. We hope you enjoy reading about your colleagues, and we look forward to hearing how your department is improving clinical care.

Less is M​ore​

When a child is sick, we want to do everything to help them. But when the typical treatments for bronchiolitis are proven ineffective, how do we change our behaviors?
