ASPIRING TO COLLABORATIVE PRACTICE IN THE AUSTRALIAN HEALTHCARE SYSTEM, AND THE ARGUMENT FOR A NATIONAL COMPETENCY FRAMEWORK.

Presenters: Sarah Meiklejohn and Margo Brewer

With assistance from the HPAC Forum IPE working group: Fiona Kent, Lynda Cardiff, Bronwyn Clark, Brian Jolly, Julie Gustavs, Theanne Walters, Sue Kirsa, and Glenys Wilkinson.

The Australian healthcare system aspires to deliver safe and collaborative healthcare centred around the individual needs and preferences of patients and their families. Development of a workforce able to deliver comprehensive and collaborative care is the combined responsibility of multiple stakeholders including education institutions, accreditation authorities, consumers and practice settings. Interprofessional competency frameworks are in use internationally to make explicit the knowledge, skills and behaviours required of collaborative practice. Additionally, competency frameworks help to inform health professions education, assessment and workplace learning expectations. A range of frameworks are in use in Australia, but recent research by the Health Professions Accreditation Collaborative (HPAC) Forum highlighted the value of establishing a national interprofessional competency framework for all health professionals to work toward (Kent et al.)

This conversation-based session will be kick-started by Sarah Meiklejohn from the AIPPEN Steering Committee. Sarah will reflect on the recent research by the HPAC Forum, which aimed to facilitate the development of collaborative practitioners through increased collaboration between accreditation authorities, health services and education providers. The merit of a national competency framework will be presented. Participants will be invited to share ideas on how to progress a national interprofesssional collaborative practice competency framework, and the role AIPPEN and ANZAHPE members could play in this work.

Dr Sarah Meiklejohn is a health professions education leader with a focus IPE and accreditation research. She commenced as Education Coordinator at the Monash Centre for Scholarship in Health Education (MCSHE), Monash University in November 2021 and is an active member of ANZAHPE and AIPPEN.

ANZAHPE ONLINE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM:
'MAXIMISING FEEDBACK THROUGH AN EDUCATIONAL ALLIANCE'

Presenter: Associate Professor Rola Ajjawi

Feedback is the powerhouse of learning in health professions education (HPE). Yet done badly, it can demotivate and deactivate learning or worse leave long term emotional scars. Unfortunately, unhelpful myths about feedback have developed over time. In this talk, I pose an alternative approach to ‘balanced’ sandwiches, and objective, decontextualised rules for feedback; instead to maximise feedback we need to build strong educational alliances. The educational alliance, drawn from the therapeutic alliance, poses feedback as a process, done with others within the context of a good working relationship. It is based on three pillars – the learner perceiving a strong bond with their educator and having shared goals and activities. I will share the evidence base for the educational alliance, its limitations, and the conditions that foster its development within HPE.

Rola Ajjawi is Associate Professor of Education Research, at the Centre for Research in Assessment and Digital Learning (CRADLE), Deakin University. She has been researching health professions education since starting her PhD in 2003 building an international research portfolio in feedback, clinical supervision and assessment-for-inclusion. She has been Deputy Editor of Medical Education since 2013, leads a taskforce on inclusion and diversity, and chairs the AMEE Doctoral Research Award Group. In 2021, Rola was awarded a Karolinska Institute Prize for Research in Medical Education.

What individuals and institutions might do to improve feedback

Although feedback is viewed as instrumental to learning, it is often reported to be ineffective or problematic. Academic and healthcare institutions have typically responded to ‘the feedback problem’ by training more educators to be better at delivering feedback information to recipients. Rather than doing more of the same, with little effect, we argue that we might do better to reframe what is meant by feedback, and in doing so, encourage learners to have a more active role in the process. 

In this interactive session, the notion of learner feedback literacy is discussed, and illustrative examples of what this might look like in healthcare contexts are drawn upon from the research. Educators are challenged to think about what they can do to support learner agency within feedback conversations, as well as what institutions might do to encourage more productive feedback processes. The role of emotions in feedback is examined, and participants are asked to consider how an educational alliance might be cultivated to draw out the potential of feedback for learning.

This session included provocations fuelled by evidence, and enabled participants to work on a case study within small groups, providing an opportunity for discussion and application of some of the key principles. 

Presenters:  Prof Elizabeth Molloy & A/Prof Rola Ajjawi
Co-editors of the 2019 book “The impact of Feedback in Higher Education”

Pooling pearls of portfolio wisdom: promotion, preparation and practice

PeArLS session style: The presenter and participants are equals who gather to discuss a common problem. The initial “presentation” be minimal (5 mins, 3 slides) and is framed around a challenging question or an issue that the presenter is grappling with.

Portfolios have gained traction as a tool to facilitate reflective practice in higher education, post-graduate training, and professional development. In health professions education, portfolios (and reflection) can be met with resistance from students and practising clinicians alike.

Through this session, we draw collective pearls of wisdom from those with experience in supporting learners to engage in portfolio-based learning and assessment. Specifically, we want to understand how participants address ‘the three Ps’ of portfolios (i.e., promotion, preparation, and practice) to develop a culture in which portfolios are embraced as a pathway to productive learning.

Presenters: Johanna Jordaan (Flinders University), Svetlana King (Flinders University)and Jenny McDonald (Western Sydney University).

LEARNING IN (AND FOR) A DIGITAL WORLD

Professor Margaret Bearman
Deakin University

As 2020 has revealed, almost all aspects of modern living are mediated by the digital in one form or another. However, we tend to think very instrumentally about technology: as a tool to help us teach or to help us care for patients. This keynote takes a broader view and explores what it means for health professional students to learn in a digital world.

building a feedback culture - PROFESSOR Chris Watling

Professor Chris Watling
MD, MMEd, PhD, FRCP(C) Western University, Canada

Increasingly, we are recognizing the influence of culture on how educational strategies play out.  Feedback is a prime example.  Learners continue to tell us that the quality and quantity of feedback they receive is underwhelming.  Most of our efforts to enhance feedback in medical education have targeted individuals, teaching them to be better givers or users of feedback.  This approach, however, has often failed to yield meaningful improvements.  Looking at culture lets us see things we might not have otherwise seen, and offers new options for really improving the quality of the education we provide.  In this keynote, Prof Watling offers examples of “feedback cultures”, examines the foundations that sustain them, and will consider the opportunities for nurturing feedback cultures within health professions education.

CONFRONTING CONTEXTS - PROFESSOR RACHEL ELLAWAY

Professor Rachel Ellaway
University of Calgary, Canada

Dr. Ellaway guided a reflective inquiry session exploring key concerns in thinking about context in health professional education. Context is always with us; we are never not in context. Context is also a polysemic concept that both unites and divides us. If contexts are all unique then how can we talk systematically about context in health professional education? Pattern and pattern language theory can help with this. 

This interactive session on ‘Confronting Contexts’ stimulated thinking about the impact that contexts have on health professional education.
