#27 Who Is Practice Ready? Challenging the Status Quo in Higher Education and Examining the Education and Practice Gap featuring Dr. Susan Hanrahan

We are so excited to have Dr. Susan Hanrahan on the podcast with us today.  

We’re talking today about preparing the future workforce for the 21st Century.

 

As Dr. Hanrahan pointed out, we are already in the 21st Century, so we are already behind!  That’s why these kinds of conversations are so important.

 

Dr. Susan Hanrahan shares some new ideas about higher education and what’s missing and what’s needed to prepare the future workforce.

 

She challenges the status quo and shares some fresh, progressive and thought-provoking ideas.

 

There are two basic tenets that Dr. Hanrahan has believed during her years in practice and academia.  The first is reimbursement (3rd party) drives practice, which impacts workforce needs, and the second is practice should drive education

 

Healthcare market drivers and the reaction to those drivers in practice environments are significant but we also need to think about those factors in conjunction with what’s happening in health professions education to figure out what’s still missing to get clinicians practice ready

 

This represents the interdependent relationship between interprofessional education and interprofessional collaborative practice 

 

Different higher order mental skills and cognitive capacities are needed to prepare the future workforce and advance the ability to be practice ready

 

“We are operating and teaching at way too low a level for the real world” Susan Hanrahan, PhD

 

Join us for this rich and inspiring interview exploring new types of education requirements, literacies and higher order mental skills that are needed to prepare the health professions workforce to be practice ready.
