Learning from others – service user involvement in student nurse education in India

The involvement of service users and carers i.e. patients and unpaid carers is now an integral part of the delivery of all health and social care programmes in the UK. Indeed their involvement is a requirement of validating these programmes; service users and carers are involved in their design , implementation and evaluation . However with increasing economic and work force issues apparent in the NHS in the UK,it is  both interesting and appropriate for me as Chair of the service users and carer group in the Faculty of Health, Social Care and Medicine at Edge Hill University to explore how this involvement has been facilitated internationally. Accordingly I have explored this in both India and China. This presentation has important transferable information that will be useful for other health and social care education providers.

Wednesday 15th July (13.00 – 14.00)

Challenges in delivering a fully integrated non-modular curriculum online

Peter Leadbetter

Edge Hill University has developed and validated a unique Foundation Year for Medicine. The programme targets widening participation students from the North West of England, who, due to circumstances beyond their control are unlikely to have the same opportunities as others to study medicine. The aim of the programme is prepare & support students academically, personally and professionally for the rigours of medicine. Passing all assessments hence guarantees students direct entry to the 5- year medical programme.

The session will present an overview of the course and outlines the challenges in delivering the programme during the covid-19 crisis. This includes discussions about changes to student support processes; discussions about varied modes of on-line delivery; and discussions about maintaining and supporting input from external clinicians. Success is measured in the high percentage of students who continue to engage in the course, course feedback and external engagement.

Wednesday 22 July (13:00 – 14:00)

Developing employability online: lessons learnt from the FOE

Helena Knapton

In May colleagues in the FoE hosted two online events to support the employability of our students.  The first was a one day event for our final year students on Primary Teacher Education programmes, the ‘Employability Festival’.  The second was a series of events during May focusing on Employability and Transition for second year students studying on programmes that do not lead directly into teaching.  In each case they were replacing ‘present-in-person’ events.  This session would be an opportunity to investigate the lessons learned from these events and consider the opportunities that are available as we plan for 2020/21.

Wednesday 29th July (13:00 – 14:00)

Commuter Students: what can we learn from them in a time of working from home?

Helena Knapton

Lockdown has forced all of us to reconsider our learning and teaching from new perspectives as we have adapted to our students having to work from home as well as ourselves.  However, it has always been the case that a significant proportion of our students have not lived on campus, or even in Ormskirk, and/or have had to continue academic studies whilst on placement.  As we begin to plan for 2020/21 what lessons can we learn from them that allow us to see the positives in this situation as well as discern practical steps that we can take that will make next year a success, both in the short and long term.
