In March 2016 tutor’s trainer Dr Ella Iskrenko-Poulton (St. George University of London) and Jonathan Round, physician of advanced pediatric department and author of the cases with medical errors (St. George University of London) conducted online training for PBL tutors focusing on training against medical errors.
It was conducted via video-conference platform OmniJoin.
The teachers from ZSMU (Ukraine, Zaporizhzhia), BSMU (Ukraine, Chernivtsi), KSMU (Kazakhstan, Karaganda) and AMU (Kazakhstan, Astana) participated in this online conference.
The main goal of the training was to explain the nature and fundamental characteristics of medical errors teaching and their role in medicine and to develop skills necessary for the problem-based learning technology.
The future tutors also had an opportunity to look through the first case of the project, its structure and work through medical errors in it.
All participants were satisfied with the training and expressed their strong wish to apply the achieved knowledge in practice.
