Add to Calendar



120 minutes

Meeting the challenge and embracing the change
Sharing best practice in COVID times
Session synopsis: 

It is often said that “through adversity comes strength” and these COVID times have created significant adversity in healthcare education necessitating strength to overcome the challenges. The nature and pace of this change is unprecedented in recent times. This has forced educators and clinicians to explore new avenues and examine what we have been doing in the past and to determine what we may continue with in the future.

The aims of this Special Interest Group are to explore and share how schools have overcome the adverse challenges with what has been tried, what worked, what did not and what will be continued. In particular, what innovative practices will be carried forward post-COVID as a sign of our strength as we emerge from the global pandemic.
