Beyond the Guidelines is a multimedia feature based on selected clinical conferences at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC).
Each educational feature focuses on the care of a patient who "falls between the cracks" in available evidence and for whom the optimal clinical management is unclear. Such situations include those in which a guideline finds evidence insufficient to make a recommendation, a patient does not fit criteria mapped out in recommendations, or different organizations provide conflicting recommendations. Clinical experts provide opinions and comment on how they would approach the patient's care.
Participants verbally share brief stories with an audience who votes on their favorite story.
Story Slams are events that celebrate storytelling by providing an opportunity for participants to verbally share brief stories with an audience. Building on the popular Annals' feature "On Being a Doctor," Annals hosted an "On Being a Doctor" Story Slam on November 18, 2015. This Annals' "On Being a Doctor" Story Slam was made possible with generous support from the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation.
The Consult Guys bring a new perspective to the art and science of medicine with lively discussion and analysis of real world cases and situations.
