BOX 9Engaging Doctors

Barriers to Understanding

  • Planning dollars spent on infrastructure and systems preparedness
  • Silos of societies advocating their curriculum
  • No time to prepare for rare event
  • States and communities determine practice standards—more silos—but physicians receive education globally

Potential Solution

Educate physicians in language and venues in which they commonly receive information (avoid silos):

  • Clear
  • Concise
  • Consensus based
  • Clinical (most importantly)
