Kelley, Kristi; Liles, Anne Marie
TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, v62 n3 p250-258 May 2018
Providing patient education for a group is an essential practice for all healthcare providers that has been recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), specifically in relation to patients with chronic diseases. This practice requires skills such as adapting communication to meet the needs of a broad audience, understanding the perspective and knowledge gaps of a broad audience, and ensuring engagement of all audience members. These are experiences that pharmacy students do not traditionally encounter until the fourth professional year. This article will present the design of an active-learning, role-playing activity intended to develop group patient education skills in pharmacy students.
