In this simulation of a doctor's office, students play the roles of physician, nurse, patients, and time-keeper, with the objective to improve the patient waiting time. They collect and graph data as part of their analysis. This serves as a hands-on example of using engineering principles and engineering design approaches (such as models and simulations) to research, analyze, test and improve processes.

Clinical Procedures for Safer Patient Care
Unrestricted Use

Rating
0.0 stars

This open educational resource (OER) was developed to ensure best practice and quality care based on the latest evidence, and to address inconsistencies in how clinical health care skills are taught and practised in the clinical setting. The checklist approach, used in this textbook, aims to provide standardized processes for clinical skills and to help nursing schools and clinical practice partners keep procedural practice current. Each skill/procedure is covered in a chapter that has learning objectives, a brief overview of the relevant theory, checklists of steps for procedures with the rationale behind each step of the process, and a summary of key takeaways. Key terms are set in bold throughout the book and laid out again in a Glossary in the appendix. All 88 checklists are also summarized, and hyperlinked to the original checklist, in the appendix.

This peer reviewed e-book is a must-read for nurses and other health professionals who strive to teach with creativity and excellence in clinical settings. Each chapter presents current evidence informed educational practice knowledge. Each topic is also presented with text boxes describing ‘Creative Strategies’ that clinical teachers from across Canada have successfully implemented. For those who are interested in background knowledge, the authors provided a comprehensive literature base. And, for those interested mainly in 'what to do,' the text box summaries offer step-by-step directions for creative, challenging activities that both new and experienced instructors can begin using immediately.

Disease Prevention Strategies
Rating
0.0 stars

This virtual textbook on Public Health teaches strategies for disease prevention. The website explains disease prevention using three categories - primary, secondary, and tertiary. In the description of each one, the website includes several examples like vaccination, regular tooth brushing, screening, environmental modifications, and check-ups. The website also provides a chart with three medical conditions and the stages of disease prevention. As an interactive activity, teachers can print out this chart for students, leaving the stages of disease prevention boxes blank. Students can brainstorm what methods of disease prevention would fall under each category of each medical condition. At the end, the teacher can review some correct examples, using the key provided on the website. The goals of this activity are for students to identify methods of disease prevention; identify if the method is primary, secondary, or tertiary; gain an understanding of what primary, secondary, and tertiary mean; and be able to list some strategies of disease prevention for example medical conditions.

Diversity in Healthcare
Rating
0.0 stars

This website provides an icebreaker, presentation/video, and classroom research/discussion activity to teach students about diverse beliefs that impact medical care delivery. The resource provides a lesson plan for teachers which includes learning objectives, lesson format, vocabulary, and materials needed. Through the optional icebreaker, students can reflect on their identities and learn about diversity in the classroom. Through the Cultural Competence presentation and video, students can learn about diversity and culture in general. And through the research/discussion activity, students can understand a certain culture/country and their beliefs on medical care. They can share their findings with a small group and answer some provided discussion questions. Not only does this activity teach students that diversity can impact beliefs and behaviors about medicine, but it also teaches respect for other cultures AND it teaches what specific countries/cultures believe about medicine.

This resource is a video posted by Finoit Technologies that provides an overview of the 10 largest challenges our healthcare system faces today and will continue to face in the future. For an activity, I would have your students watch the short video and then have each of them pick one of the ten problems from the video and propose a solution. This will allow your students to think critically and this activity will give them an idea of the problems leaders in healthcare face every day.

Overcoming Communication Barriers in Healthcare
Rating
0.0 stars

This website by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality clearly explains the common communication barriers in a medical setting, along with techniques to overcome them. Language, hearing, and visual barriers can be overcome by visuals, video aids, written instructions, and medical interpreters. The website provides directions on how to facilitate conversation between the patient, medical professional, and translator. As an interactive activity, students should role-play how they would introduce each communication technique to a patient when there is a communication barrier. By reading and role-playing, students should feel confident communicating with patients through the use of communication aids.

Students learn how biomedical engineers work with engineers and other professionals to develop dependable medical devices. Specifically, they learn about suction pumps, which are important devices to keep in good repair, especially when they are used in remote locations. Student teams brainstorm, sketch, design and create prototypes of suction pump protection devices to keep fluid from backing up and ruining the pump motors. Using a real suction pump, they conduct repeated trials to test their devices for reliability, making improvements as necessary.
