Going Beyond Four Walls - Effectively Communicating in the Medical Field PBL Project

With plentiful studies indicating the high rate of medical errors, the resulting law suits, medical staff confusion, and patient unsatisfactory report survey due to inefficient communications among healthcare workers, the importance of having solid social, emotional and communication skills has come sharply into focus in the medical field. Students will develop a deeper understanding of these skills introduced in class that will enhance their personal and professional growth and apply these before going out to internship in the medical field. Lesson #1: Students will learn to recognize that it can be acceptable and positive for people to have diverse opinions about the same thing. Lesson #2: Student will increase awareness of the role listening plays in living and working with others. Lesson #3: Students will be capable of living and working with people from diverse backgrounds in a spirit of respect and tolerance. Lesson #4: Students will practice the skills of conversation, listening, and speaking that are necessary for effective communication between friends, family members, and colleagues in the workplace. This project is brought to you by Madeleine Dasalla with support from the CTE Online curriculum leadership team and detailed coordination provided by Team Lead Josh Bradley.
