Diversity in medical education: creating bias-free educational materials and learning environments

Wednesday, June 22, 2022
Presented by: Yasmin Carter, PhD

Join for a look at why our learning materials need a fresh perspective and how to initiate this in your classroom or program. Whether it’s an anatomy or basic sciences class, one of the best ways for non-experts to include diversity content in their curriculum is to think about context, the words we speak, and the images we use.

Social media as a teaching and learning tool in medical education

Thursday, November 18, 2021
Presented by: Andre M. Mansoor, MD, Associate Professor of Medicine, Division of Hospital Medicine, School of Medicine, Oregon Health Sciences University, Portland

How can you use social media as a tool to guide learning?

Dr. André Mansoor has developed a strong social media following, with more than 14,000 Twitter followers and similar numbers on other social platforms. He started using social media to promote his book, Frameworks for Internal Medicine (Wolters Kluwer, 2018), and quickly realized that social media offers more than a way to engage with students and residents; it also provides an effective way to teach.

Join us as Dr. Mansoor discusses how he regularly shares cases and other content, the impact, and how you could take a similar journey.

  • About This Webinar and Speakers

    The Covid-19 pandemic wreaked havoc on an already compromised infrastructure and stressed the acute care workforce. Nurses have reported exhaustion, mental health concerns, and a perceived lack of support by employers, and many nurses — both direct care providers and managers — are leaving the acute care setting.

    Join a panel of nurses from acute and critical care, nurse administrators, and researchers as we discuss the realities and challenges of what’s needed to restore a workplace that supports, respects, and fosters the contributions of acute care nurses. The goal of this webinar is to spur dialogue among clinical nurses and managers with CNOs, COOs, and CEOs.

    After attending this webinar, participants will be able to:

    • Identify the ongoing challenges faced by nurses in the acute care setting as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic
    • Identify key questions that need to be asked and addressed to create a post-pandemic workplace that supports, respects, and fosters the contributions of acute care nurses
