A new report by the Council of Deans of Health highlights innovations in practice learning education undertaken by universities during the pandemic.
The report ‘Pandemic Powered Improvements – best practice in innovative healthcare education placements created during the pandemic‘ contains case studies from Council member institutions across the UK. It aims to showcase some of the most creative and impactful placements created during the pandemic to ensure the right lessons are learnt going forward.
Dr Katerina Kolyva, Chief Executive Officer, said:
‘Universities are continuously innovating to provide the highest quality healthcare education. The Covid-19 pandemic led to rapid innovations to ensure healthcare programmes continued to be delivered and that healthcare students had the diverse practice learning experiences needed to graduate and join the professional registers.
I would like to congratulate our members for their hard work, dedication and creativity in delivering these innovations. The Council wants to ensure this best practice is shared and that lessons from the pandemic are built upon. We will continue to work with stakeholders across the UK to expand and support innovations in healthcare education’.
