Finding The Most Promising Innovations to Teach Value

Earlier this year, we launched the Teaching Value and Choosing Wisely Competition in conjunction with Costs of Care and the ABIM Foundation. Why a competition? Not surprisingly, traditional “literature review” yielded little by way of promising strategies for educators who wished to learn how to teach about value. However, we had all learned of isolated stories of success, occasionally through attending professional meetings, sometimes via networking with colleagues, or more often through just plain word of mouth. To help bring these stories of success to the fore, we relied on a crowdsourcing model by launching a competition to engage a larger community of individuals to tell us their story. Of course, there were moments we wondered if we would get any submissions. Fortunately, we did not have anything to worry about! In June, we received 74 submissions, from 14 specialties with innovations and bright ideas that targeted both medical students, residents, faculty and interprofessional learners.
