Look Like?
 Train the Trainer
Who: 1-2 faculty champions

activities at your program. We will provide them with all of
the resources they need to answer a clinical question of
interest by publishing a structured

Look Like?
 Generate Enthusiasm Through Quick Publication
Who: Residents and remaining faculty members
 What: Give everyone in your program an opportunity to
earn an achievable electronic publication by updating a
point-of-care topic overview.
 Why: While faculty champions are learning more
advanced critical appraisal skills, eMedRef introduces the
rest of the program to the publication process and
provides early wins through publishing.
Why does the FPIN approach work?
• Implementation plans and publication projects are
built for residents and programs to be successful
