WORKSHOP TITLE:

Ready for practice: facilitating dental students’ transitions between different clinical settings, communities and cultures.

Date: 13th September, 2018 (Thursday)
Time: 13:30-17:00
Place: Phong Nha Room
Proposed by: Vishna Devi Nadarajah and Allan Pau

METHOD OF DELIVERY:

  • Micro-lectures
  • Hand-on Activity including problem solving
  • Group Activity including discussions and presentations

SYNOPSIS:

Globalization of education and mobility of health professions across borders is inevitable. Dental schools have the responsibility to ensure that dental graduates have the skills and competencies to practice in various clinical settings, communities and cultures.  There are several ways to do this including providing opportunities for students to get elective posting in different communities or experience some parts of their dental education in other countries. These are called clinical transition programmes.  Different countries/ communities however mean a difference in culture, social demographics, expectations and healthcare systems. Hence, there will be challenges when designing and implementing students’ transition to different healthcare settings, communities and culture. These challenges can start during the planning, continue when students enter into these new environments and re-occur upon returning to their home countries/ own setting.  An example of a challenge, is applying the lessons learned from an overseas experience into health systems in their home country may receive resistance and dishearten the returning student.  Given the challenges, it is necessary for dental schools to facilitate students’ smooth transitions from one clinical setting/community/ culture to another through well designed clinical transition programmes.

AIM OF THE WORKSHOP

This workshop will enable faculty participants to design, implement and evaluate clinical transition programmes, an educational initiative which is relevant to the South East Asian region. Participants will also have the opportunity to consider different tools to assess the competencies developed from the transition experience, including the use of technology to facilitate feedback and other forms of student support.

Workshop participants will be invited to engage in active discussion and also share their own experiences in developing and implementing similar programmes. The best practices learnt during the workshop (via a checklist approach) and the research topics identified will be useful for participants to apply when developing and implementing clinical transition programmes in their own dental schools.
