Graphic Medicine as a resource for health professional education

The field of “graphic medicine”—that is, the intersection of comics and health care—encompasses the study of comics and graphic novels about health care and illness, the creation of comics as vehicles for learning and reflection among health care professionals, and the use of comics as an alternative means of communication about serious health and bioscience topics to patient populations and the lay public. This area of study has become firmly established in the past decade, with peer-reviewed publications in high-profile journals such as the BMJ, a dedicated book series out of Penn State Press, official recognition via a regular feature in Annals of Internal Medicine, comics incorporated into electives in some medical schools as a resource for professional identity formation, and an annual international conference.

This presentation will give a brief overview of the field, introduce some key publications, consider the growing evidence for the efficacy of visual narrative in health care education, and model one hands-on exercise for incorporating graphic medicine in an educational context.

Educating Health Professionals in the 21st Century: What Will We Need Humans For?

Everywhere we look, dramatic shifts in technology are changing the way we conduct our lives. Banking and buying are on line. We enter a concert, a movie or board a flight with a barcoded piece of paper printed at home. Inside our clinics and operating rooms, robotics and systems that employ artificial intelligence are augmenting, and in some cases will one day replace, the work of human health professionals. The word often used to describe this changing landscape is “disruption”.

 Despite this, health professions education is proving very slow in preparing for the changes ahead. Though ripe for their own disruption, education models seem oddly resistant to change. Yet our students will be practicing in 2050 and need an education that will prepare them for this rapidly changing context. Equally important, healthcare professionals in practice today need help to prepare for what will be a very different workplace. Professional scopes of practice are going to change significantly and some professions may be reconfigured or made obsolete. It is time to take a hard look at what aspects of health care should remain firmly in the heads, hands and hearts of human health professionals.

Person-Centred Care: Broadening the Curriculum Beyond Bioscience

The roles that physicians are called upon to perform in our current competency frameworks depend on concepts, theories, and ways of knowing that come from the social sciences and humanities. These forms of knowledge are particularly critical to the provision of compassionate, equitable patient care. However, they have only recently been introduced into Canadian medical education, so is it any wonder that medical educators continue to express uncertainty about what and how to teach in these areas?

Competency based Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and “Learning at Work”

Competency based CPD is set to launch within the Competence by Design initiative of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons. This vision for a national CPD system implicates concepts of CPD with notions of learning at work. In this presentation, Dr. Rowland will synthesize historical accounts of (1) CPD and (2) workplace learning, exploring possible questions that emerge when these two frames are brought together under the common aim of improving patient care.
