Abstract : The patient chart can serve as an excellent teaching tool for family practice residents. Designing notes which 'prompt' residents to gather patient information vital to optimal care can teach residents the concepts of longitudinal care, particularly chronic disease management and preventive care. Specialized notes developed for specific diseases can teach residents how to manage that particular disease and teach residents how to address issues such as co-morbid diseases and reduction of risk factors for end-organ disease. Notes designed for specific patient populations can help residents address issues important to that population as a whole and reinforce concepts of managed care. Specialized patient information sheets can assist in providing feedback to residents regarding their care. These sheets summarize medical conditions, patient habits, and provide a means of tracking preventive screenings and interventions.
