Educating for health care's collaborative future
Dr. MacKenzie has played a pivotal role in shaping interprofessional health education at Dal over the past decade or so, serving as a champion for expanding simulation-based activities that help prepare students for the broader shift in Canadian health care to a more collaborative model.
Dr. MacKenzie helped develop the interprofessional stroke care simulation, a natural fit for a simulation aimed at sharpening students’ interprofessional skills.
Embedding the stroke simulation into six different curriculums (OT, physiotherapy, nursing, pharmacy, speech language pathology and medicine) has been a challenging process at times, says Dr. MacKenzie, but a worthwhile one.
“It’s all about learning how to be the best team to get the best outcomes for patients and their families, so they can be the best they can be as well,” says Dr. MacKenzie.
