1. Inter-professional Education
Good inter-professional teamwork brings better patient outcome, but teaching and assessing it remains an enigma. At SKH, we strive to provide continuing professional development in the inter-professional format. Inter-professional education (IPE) has been shown to improve patient outcomes and should be priorities in the clinical environment.
2. Sengkang Clinics in Education Enquiry (SCEE)
Fundamentals of Clinical Education (FCE)
Sengkang General Hospital Education Office collaborated with Medicine, Nursing and Allied Health Divisions, and developed a series of workshops on clinical education. Teaching and patient care are inextricably intertwined. At SKH, clinical educators do their best for student learning, be it in the medical, nursing or allied health discipline. The continuity of care increases students' exposure to patient care. In line with this is the adoption of inter-professional education and care to transcend the tribalism of health professionals. Healthcare professionals are not working in silos, and training them in the inter-professional setting helps them to better understand the expertise and responsibilities of other professions, improve collaboration among departments and improve patient care outcomes.
