Collaborative Online Interprofessional Education (COIL)- using technology to teach the

Chronic illness (CI) encompasses a myriad of controllable but not curable illnesses, affecting more than one third (or nine million) Canadians costing up to 60% of healthcare dollars. Most healthcare education is based within acute care hospitals, focusing on acute episodic disease management. However, chronic illness management requires education about self management issues, social/ emotional factors, navigation of the healthcare system and collaborative/ interprofessional care. There exist several barriers to providing this type of education within the current system. So how do we teach complex illness in a way that remains stimulating, acknowledged and supported without overwhelming junior learners? Can this complex and socially rich entity be taught online? This session will explore some of these concepts and provide an example of a program used to teach CCI called COIL (Collaborative online Interprofessional Learning)

Why We Need to Problematize the Academic Work We Undertake in Health Professions Education

According to Crotty, problematization involves a process of de-familiarizing terms, concepts and ideologies, which have come to be accepted as 'common sense'. A problematization process is important as it can generate new insights to advance our understanding of different phenomena, and also help comprehend entrenched 'challenges' with a fresh set of eyes. To date, however, been little effort to problematize a number of the activities we undertake within the field of health professions education. This presentation explores the need for more engagement in problematization. It uses two cases - the development of competency frameworks and the growing use of appreciative inquiry within the health organisations - to explain why a process of problematization is a key foundation to advancing this academic field.
