Lesson taught 9/20
This week I introduced a lesson in communication. Communication in healthcare is essential and I wanted to emphasize to the students how important it is to understand what is expected of them when they are on the job. I also gave them real life examples of what could happen to patients if proper procedures were not followed. The point of the lecture was to let the students know if they were not clear about instructions while on a job, in the class or home to always ask questions. I started off by showing them illusions. The purpose was to show students that things are not always as they appear. I compared that to communication. Oftentimes what we communicate is not received the way it was intended. or it is misunderstood. I went online and pulled up a site with illusions and the entire class participated. They tried to guess about certain pictures if they were real, tried to locate pictures in pictures etc. They student were so excited. There was full participation and I was able to demonstrate the importance of communication in a fun way.
