New RTI Press Publication to Help Health Professionals Address Medical Misinformation

April 7, 2023
A multi-ethnic group of nursing students are attending class together. They are seated at a long table in a classroom. The individuals are working in pairs on a project. The two women seated closest to the camera are being assisted by their female professor who is showing them something on a digital tablet.

In July 2022, the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) awarded five grants to academic medical centers to develop competency based, interprofessional strategies to mitigate health misinformation, and to integrate these approaches into the curricula for health professions students. This AAMC project is funded by a cooperative agreement from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) entitled “AAMC Improving Clinical and Public Health Outcomes through National Partnerships to Prevent and Control Emerging and Re-Emerging Infectious Disease Threats” (FAIN: NU50CK000586).  

A product of that collaboration is a new paper published by RTI Press, a global publisher of peer-reviewed, open-access publications. This paper comprises insights from several organizations and academic institutions on how to prepare health professionals to address medical misinformation and improve patient health.
