Developing skills in health treatment

Tuesday, May 20, 2014

Meg Munn MP recently visited Sheffield Hallam University’s Faculty of Health and Wellbeing to see some of the latest developments in teaching. The faculty combines the subject areas of health, sports and biosciences.

In the health area there is a focus of giving students as near real life experiences as possible using rooms set up as theatres and hospital wards. Mannequins and computer simulations enable students to practice their developing skills before meeting patients on their placements.

On this visit Meg was shown how the students were learning more about the importance of compassion, providing reassurance and listening to patients. Using iPad technology the face of a real patient talking about their experiences is projected onto a mannequin making the scenario more real.

Other technologies used include a body that is transparent, so student radiologists can practice aiming rays on to specific areas with greater accuracy for patients suffering from cancer. Computer simulations are also used along with virtual reality glasses.

Meg said:

"The facilities are very impressive as is the continuous development of new technique to better prepare students for the demanding roles they will take on. I particularly welcome the work being done around the patient experience. Recent enquiries into some hospitals have identified the importance of greater care and compassion as integral to good health care."
