For over 100 years, patients have been engaged in the education of health professionals. Furthermore, research has shown the need for enhanced engagements given the many benefits derived from early learnings and the many positive impacts that such a philosophy has on learners, educators, patients, and overall health systems.

CAAHP hosted this Lunch and Learn in partnership with EQual Canada. This session has explored the status of patient engagement in health professional education (HPE), from an education accreditation point of view and provide a collaborative platform for education stakeholders to discuss the next evolutionary step of this philosophy.

As we are gradually moving out of a pandemic, the shortage of health professionals is significant and the challenges before us are equally so! At CAAHP, we believe it is paramount to bring forward a very important message to the academic community and hope it helps finding solutions to address the Healthcare Human Resources challenges in Canada.

Christine Nielsen, Chief Executive Officer at CSMLS, discussed how much medical laboratory scientists were thrust into the spotlight – holding the information everyone needs – Do I have COVID-19? How does an association accelerate a certification program, when in person testing is near impossible? How do you maintain standards, when systems are falling apart – students are pulled from clinical practicums and the labour supply is drying up?

Brian Witschen presented NAIT’ strategies, in the Respiratory Therapy program, to maintain on-time graduation for each cohort while still achieving all required competencies without an over-reliance on simulation sign-offs. Modifications to clinical rotations, use of virtual patient scenarios, and an increased emphasis on simulating transferrable skills will all be discussed.
