The future of clinical education
Our guest for this episode is an expert on clinical education and is helping to answer a question that is close to Dr. Nurse Dan’s heart: “How do we train the doctors and nurses of the future?”
Lawrence Sherman is the CEO of Meducate Global, a consultancy whose goal is to improve the education of healthcare professionals around the world. He and Dan talk about how the landscape for clinical education is changing, and how those changes have been accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic as learning has moved from a face-to-face setting to a digital one.
Lawrence shares his thoughts on how the role of clinical educator needs to evolve from a one-directional transferer of knowledge to a facilitator of learning. He also shares advice for nurse leaders who want to build on the innovation happening in academia and embed that into their own culture of continuous learning. We also talk about the benefits and challenges of interdisciplinary learning in a hospital setting.
