Silver, Julie K; Cuccurullo, Sara; Weiss, Lyn; Visco, Christopher; Sowa, Gwendolyn; Oh-Park, Mooyeon; Karimi, Danielle Perret; Frontera, Walter R; Fleming, Talya K; Bosques, Glendaliz; Ambrose, Anne Felicia; Knowlton, Tiffany
ABSTRACT/UNASSIGNED:The Association of Academic Physiatrists (AAP) convened a Women's Task Force in 2016, under the leadership of then AAP President Gerard Francisco, MD, to evaluate data and metrics pertaining to the representation and inclusion of women physiatrists in the society. An initial published report focused on a retrospective analysis of data in categories such as leadership, conference presentations, and recognition awards. The findings, which highlighted areas in which the AAP had been successful in supporting gender equity as well as areas in which women physiatrists were underrepresented, provided a base from which to strategically focus on closing gaps in representation. The task force developed an action plan that was approved by the Board of Trustees and included strategies aimed at closing gaps and collecting data to determine corresponding effectiveness. Because most of the categories fell under the supervision of various AAP committees, an appointee from each committee ("diversity steward") liaised with the Women's Task Force. The diversity stewards reviewed the plan with their respective committees and collected data within their committee's purview. This task force follow-up report documents recent progress, consistent with the AAP Board of Trustees commitment to transparency and gender equity.

The Vital Role of Professionalism in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation

Silver, Julie K; Cuccurullo, Sara; Weiss, Lyn D; Visco, Christopher; Oh-Park, Mooyeon; Karimi, Danielle Perret; Frontera, Walter R; Fleming, Talya K; Bosques, Glendaliz; Bhatnagar, Saurabha; Ambrose, Anne Felicia; Nguyen, Vu Q
Professionalism in medicine is universally embraced, and it is the foundation for core competencies in medical education, clinical practice, and research. Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation physicians must master a complex body of knowledge and use this to responsibly care for patients. Rehabilitation professionals work in various settings; however, each one must establish and maintain ethical standards consistent with the specialty and national standards. For example, the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education lists professionalism as 1 of its 6 core competencies which trainees must master. There is a growing interest in professionalism and some of the ethical issues that it encompasses. This report provides a general overview of professionalism. Future reports are needed, and there is an opportunity to consider many facets of professionalism in greater detail.

Association of Academic Physiatrists Women's Task Force Report

Silver, Julie K; Cuccurullo, Sara; Ambrose, Anne Felicia; Bhatnagar, Saurabha; Bosques, Glendaliz; Fleming, Talya K; Frontera, Walter R; Karimi, Danielle Perret; Oh-Park, Mooyeon; Sowa, Gwendolyn; Visco, Christopher; Weiss, Lyn; Knowlton, Tiffany
The Association of Academic Physiatrists (AAP) convened a women's task force in 2016, and the members agreed on a list of metrics that would permit retrospective data review pertaining to the representation and inclusion of women physicians in the society. Examples of categories examined included leadership positions (i.e., board membership, board presidents, committee membership, committee chairs, and resident fellow physician chairs), conference presentations (i.e., annual meeting session proposals, annual meeting faculty, annual meeting plenary speakers) and recognition awards (i.e., recognition award nominations and recipients). The findings highlight areas in which the AAP has been successful in supporting gender equity and other areas in which women physiatrists have been underrepresented. The task force worked with the Board of Trustees to construct an action plan; asking the respective committees to address areas of underrepresentation. A volunteer from each committee was deemed a 'diversity steward' and going forward will work directly with the task force as a liaison to document an action plan and collect data. The board plans to transparently report progress to members and other stakeholders, and the task force aims to publish a follow-up report within the next five years.
