Discussion Guidelines
Initial Post

Introduce yourself to the class by sharing what previous experience you have had with the pediatric population as well as the demographics of the community in which you reside. Then, identify either a community, state, or federally funded program that you could recommend to your patients if they presented with “food insecurity.”

Objective 2: Write one objective that identifies a procedure that you would like to perform proficiently and effectively.

Objective 3: Write one objective that identifies one area of expertise that you will apply to further patient education.

When creating your objectives, remember that they must use the SMART format described below:

Specific: Your objective must identify exactly what you want to accomplish in as much specificity as you can muster.
Bad: Run more.
Good: Run one mile every other day for one month.
Measurable: As the old adage says, “You can’t manage what you can’t measure.” If possible, try to quantify the result.
Bad: See more patients.
Good: Record 10 pediatric patients in Typhon each week.
Actionable: Every objective should start with an action verb (e.g., “quit,” “run,” “finish,” “eliminate,” etc.) rather than a to-be verb (e.g., “am,” “be,” “have,” etc.)
Bad: Be more consistent in recording in Typhon.
Good: Record my patients in Typhon the evening after clinical.
Realistic: A good objective should stretch you, but you have to add a dose of common sense. I go right up to the edge of my comfort zone and then step over it.
Bad: I will turn in all of my assignments for the semester during the first week.
Good: I will turn in my assignments two days before their due date.
Time-bound: Every objective needs a date associated with it. When do you plan to deliver on that objective? It could be by year-end (December 31) or it could be more near-term (September 30). Make sure that every objective ends with a “by when” date. 
Bad: Lose 10 pounds.
Good: Lose 10 pounds by May 2nd.
