As part of the new undergraduate professional health care curriculum a new inter-professional first-year module was created to allow students on different professional pathways to learn together. We were asked to create role plays to focus on particular areas of improving the communication skills of health care students with their patients.
Performers: Cathy Jeffrey, Viv Peyton, Yvonne Levy, Jeanie Deane, Donald Elliott, Angie McIntosh, Judith Bevan.
We were also involved in researching the impact of using drama in healthcare education.
We are currently working with staff to deliver workshops in Semester 2 and also to use at a conference.
