The France Foundation, American Society for Clinical Pathologists, and American College of Chest Physicians Awarded Honorable Mention for Best in Class Outcome Practice at the Alliance Industry Summit (AIS) in Philadelphia

OLD LYME, CT — JUNE 2, 2015 — A poster presentation was awarded to the "GAIN (EnGAging an Interdisciplinary Team for NSCLC Diagnosis, Personalized Assessment & Treatment) Europe Collaborators", which included the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP), American College of Chest Physicians (CHEST), and The France Foundation (TFF).

The project involved a series of 12 one-day curricula throughout Europe on lung cancer education. The curricula incorporated learner-centric elements, including an interactive, audience participation "tumor board" session followed by four breakouts with hands-on experience and ended with a team approach to working on case scenarios of lung cancer diagnosis and management via a problem-based learning “Practical Approach” method. The honorable-mention award for this poster was on behalf of the Alliance Industry Summit’s Educational Planning Committee/Best in Class Outcome Practices Sub-Committee, during the Best in Class Outcome Practice opening session at the recent AIS held in Philadelphia on May 11th. The session showcased high-quality outcomes that effectively reported the measured impact of educational initiatives that have been successful in addressing identified gaps through education that resulted in quality of patient care improvements and/or behavior change and/or health care provider knowledge, competence, confidence, and performance. The GAIN collaborators were awarded a certificate of achievement for their expertise in program execution and outcomes methodology for this project.
