Course Overview

As clinical preceptors, the majority of our teaching is done during our routine work in caring for patients and clients. Yet, how do we intentionally engage the patient as a teaching partner in a way that is respectful to patients and instructive for learners?

This is a 2-hour workshop intended for clinical teachers and preceptors from any and all disciplines and specialties. It is part of the interprofessional Clinical Teaching Workshop Series being offered through the IHP Office of Continuing and Professional Development, hosted by the MGH Norman Knight Nursing Center.

Other topics in the series to look out for:
 - Wellness and Mindfulness
 - Evidence-based Practice in Clinical Teaching
 - Observing and Assessing Competency
 - The Feedback Challenge
 - Intersectionality
 - How to Use Questions to Teach



 The learner will be able to:
 - Separate myth from reality as it pertains to patients in clinical teaching
 - Identify patients or clients in our own practice who could be teaching partners for specific, identified learning experiences
 - Use evidence-based literature to practice engaging "patients" as partners and preparing "learners" for the experience


Live workshop will include case analysis and case-based problem-solving in small groups, sharing of information and strategies with colleagues, and feedback from other participants.
