Hand-Held Video for Clinical Skills Teaching

In health care education a balance needs to be struck between theoretical and practical teaching. Undergraduates typically split their time between clinical placement and university-based teaching blocks. A proportion of the time spent in preparation for clinical practice placements will be spent in the classroom or in simulation suites. The challenge to engage students in clinical skills education in this environment can be met by providing locally created video sequences showing the application of what is being taught in the clinical environment. This paper describes how Mini-DV format video cameras can be used to provide a practical way to gather this material. Also described is how the video is edited, stored and used.
