Medical Education in Difficult Circumstances: Working together to share stories and identify strategies and solutions

Presenter:  Judy McKimm, Swansea University Medical School, Swansea, UK
In association with AMEE CPD Committee
April 2019

Summary:  Many educators are working in cultures or organisations that involve difficult circumstances. These might be at the intrapersonal level (not fitting in, not feeling confident, knowledgeable or skilled enough); the interpersonal level (personality clashes, dysfunctional teams); the organisational level (poorly managed or led oragnsiations, no room for development or promotion, a toxic culture); the wider health or education system, or the society itself, including environmental or political issues.

Approaches to learning in sustainable healthcare and quality improvement

Presenters: Dr SanYuMay Tun, Imperial College London UK & Dr Frances Mortimer, Centre for Sustainable Healthcare, UKAMEE
Autumn Webinar Series 2019

Summary: The interconnectedness of all life, the earth’s systems and human health is easy to forget in the prevailing paradigm of medicine. Yet accelerating global environmental changes are increasingly seen to threaten our way of existence. A more sustainable future is demanded by the next generation, which includes the healthcare professionals whom we teach.  Education for sustainable healthcare is emerging as a new and necessary response. In the UK, the health service is committed to binding Government targets for carbon reductions and the General Medical Council now requires medical schools to prepare their graduates through teaching skills for sustainable healthcare.  

This webinar draws on experience from UK medical schools to look at how educators can embed this new learning into their own curricula and at the same time enhance everyday practice of healthcare delivery.  By combining learning and doing, educational approaches to the teaching of sustainable healthcare such as including it in quality improvement projects can benefit healthcare systems and patients, as well as the environment on which health depends.

Designing and using innovative video to support learners - if I video will they watch?

Presenter: Michael Botelho, Faculty of Dentistry, University of Hong Kong
An AMEE TEL Committee Webinar 2019

Summary: Educators have been somewhat slow in rising to the needs and challenges of how to support students by designing meaningful video learning experiences. There are various perceived barriers and challenges to their use and an uncertainty of how best to start and questions of what is effective? This presentation will take an evidence based and personalized perspective on the use of videos in supporting students for the knowledge and skills required of healthcare professionals. It will cover low-entry points for those considering to use video for learning, as well as design principles to create videos for needful learning. In particular, it will cover an innovative pedagogy based on the observation of videoed expert-student dialogue. This video genre captures one-on-one teaching consultions addressing a particular student centred learning need. These are shared on the learning management system for on-demand and just-in-time learning. The student feedback has been positive. These videos have developed to support other learning scenarios such as competence tests and the flipped class.

Simulation to understand and shape culture

Presenter: Eve Purdy, Queen's University, Canada
Autumn Webinar Series 2019

SummaryBackground: The use of simulation in medical education and quality improvement is on the rise. There has been significant focus on the modality for teaching and practicing communication and team behaviours. However, new evidence suggests that simulation may be an effective way to think about understanding the culture of certain groups and shaping culture too.. Our research group has conducted a number of studies recently in groups ranging from medical students to high performing teams that suggest simulation may act as a moment of cultural compression - a moment when the values, beliefs and practices of a group are particularly strong and transmitted to those on the outside. Our work suggests that simulation design, delivery, and debriefing decisions may reflect that culture but also play an important role in shaping it too. Together, we will explore the cultural realities implications of simulation.

Emotional intelligence and the medical curriculum

Presenter: Chris Skinner, Linda Berlach & Tim Leahy
Autumn Webinar Series 2019

Summary: Undergraduate medical curricula as well as professional codes of conduct for doctors increasingly require affective and emotionally attuned attributes and skills (Australian Medical Council, 2012; Medical Board of Australia, 2014).

Emotional intelligence teaching and learning is offered early in the medical curriculum as part of the multi-dimensional course aimed at the development of knowledge and skills in self-development and well-being. Over the last five years a mindfullness based stress management program entitled ESSENCE+ has been developed based on the a model by Hassed (2008).

Emotional intelligence formed part of this program and was progressively embedded into the first and second year curriculum, through regular small group sessions, experiential learning, lectures and reflective assessment tasks.

Medical Humanities: A way to transform society

Presenter: Jonathan McFarland, Sechenov University Moscow
Autumn Webinar Series 2019/2020

Summary: The humanities are now very topical in medical education; for instance,  in the last AMEE Conference there was a whole theme dedicated to them. More and more understand that the humanities are needed to restore balance to an increasingly scientific and technologically orientated curricula. The practice of medicine is however to do with people, and the humanities are necessary to help health professionals deal with people's preoccupations, worries and concerns.
Taking this as a starting point the main concern of this webinar will be how the (re)introduction of the humanities into medical education and practice can help not only on an individual and personal level (i.e. the Doctor -patient relationship) but also on a wider societal and global level. How the humanities are needed to help change and transform society at this critical and complicated moment.
