This topic builds on Symbiotic Clinical Education in the Health Professions 1 (HLED9101). It focuses on the axes between clinicians and patients, and health services and educational institutions. It enables experienced health professionals to transfer their clinical skills to the role of clinical educator. Students will study clinical reasoning and assess different approaches to helping health professional students learn the skill of making sound clinical decisions. The benefits and challenges of using patients as teachers, and in providing authentic and experiential learning experiences for students will be studied. Students will learn how to apply their clinical skills in judgement and communication to assessment of students and giving constructive feedback.
Students will consider ways of applying their clinical diagnostic skills to difficult learner-teacher relationships. Students will discuss their role as educators in assisting their students to resolve problems and where this overlaps and differs from the clinicians' role in patient management.
Students will develop skills in assessing learning needs, establishing positive, inclusive learning environments and planning learning symbiotically with health services and educational institutions.
