The Future of Health Professions Education: Challenges and Recommendations for a New Framework
Eberst, Richard M.
Health Educator, v39 n2 p79-83 Fall 2007
This article analyzes major challenges facing health care today as a basis to suggest a new framework for the professional preparation of health care professions. The long term goal is to produce practitioners who can successfully address these challenges and engage in a complete reconstitution of the current health care system to produce a more effective, efficient and patient-centered organization. The recommended framework is, in large part, based upon the underlying tenets of health education. The framework includes six core curricular focus areas, a universal service-learning experience and common patient care conferences. (Contains 3 figures and 12 resources.)
