Occupational Therapy and Speech Pathology

A school case study

This interprofessional learning through simulation resource package consists of four components: an audiovisual resource, a tutorial day schedule, a PowerPoint presentation and supporting documents. In order to optimise the learning opportunities from this package it is recommended that participants are firstly introduced to the concepts of interprofessional learning and human factors in health care.

The package has been created in a format to enable flexibility in its application depending of the educational setting, though we recommend following the tutorial day schedule.

Recommended format

Divide the students into small groups and provide them with information in progressive sessions. Each session consists of studying documentation and watching one or more audiovisual segments, followed by small group discussion which is fed back to the group as a whole.
