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.

Involving Patients, Families and New Perspectives into CPD

Presenter: David Wiljer, University of Toronto, Canada
CPD Committee 
October 2019

Summary: This webinar will explore approaches to involving patients and their families into Continuing Professional Developemtn. There has been a long history of involving patients in CPD and still many organisations face challenges around incorporating patients into their daily CPD routines and activities: these challenges can range from recruitment, training of faculty, various concerns from stakeholders and payment.
Even the simple issues of how to refer to patients who are faculty in CPD can pose challenges for learners, teachers, patients and organisations. This webinar will provide practical suggestions and space to explore these issues.

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

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.

CPD as the Cornerstone for Value Creation in the Healthcare System

Presenter: Céline Monette, President of the Board of Directors, Montfort Knowledge Institute; Board Director, Société internationale francophone d’éducation médicale; Continuing Professional Development Committee and Special Interest Group, Association for Medical Education in Europe
CPD Committee 
November 2019

Summary: Knowledge has become a prime source of wealth in our societies. Healthcare (HC) is all about knowledge and depends on healthcare professional’s competencies and performance, which has an impact on system’s performance and healthcare outcomes. The CPD Office is an integral part of the healthcare value creation through reducing practice learning gaps and helping healthcare professionals to maintain and improve their competencies. In addition CPD is a critical agent of change to achieve transformative change in a HC system.To improve CPD offices’ contribution within a specific HC system, we propose a model that helps CPD leaders to focus on societal needs when developing their plan.

Transformative learning theory: towards a new way of being in the world

Presenter; Susan van Schalkwyk, Centre for Health Professions Education, Stellenbosch University, South Africa
Autumn Webinar Series 2019

Summary: Transformative Learning (TL) is described as learning that challenges established perspectives, leading to new ways of being in the world. This complex, meta-theory offers educators a theoretical lens through which to view their students' learning. In this webinar we will explore TL as a theoretical construct and consider its implications for HPE in practice.
