Design of a Fellowship Learning-by-Teaching Experience for Reflecting on Safety and Change
- 20 Downloads
Leading change is a common topic covered in patient safety curricula. This paper describes the design of learning sessions that expand on this topic to more general concepts of safety and change across disciplines studying safety. The learning sessions were designed to be co-produced by fellows and faculty and to be thought of as an emerging phenomenon to accommodate an interprofessional class with a variety of expertise and knowledge. Cross-curricular connections were emphasized to facilitate discussion into potential interconnectedness and to identify inconsistencies. The resultant design provided the flexibility for customizing to each unique class. Future learning sessions will introduce concepts in resiliency and cognitive systems engineering while connecting to the sessions described here.
