You must register to join the session
Brief  overview:
COVID has changed WHAT we learn about in healthcare, and it has changed HOW we learn. Some of that has been long overdue improvement, but many challenges remain. Perhaps more fundamentally - we've been given a chance to re-think HOW we do our learning in the future, to reshape the CONNECTION between work and learning in healthcare, and to re-consider OUR ROLE – as advocates for science and evidence based medicine.
By the end of this session, participants will be able to:
· Reflect on the opportunities and challenges of learning and teaching during the COVID-19 pandemic
· Carefully appraise new methods for health professions education, enabled by pandemic related constraints
· Discuss ways to better connect learning and work in health professions education
· Describe approaches to high quality community education for better healthcare
