Workshop training allows students, split into small groups and supervised by expert tutors, to develop their intellectual and educational practical skills in preparation for caring for patients. During workshops, students take part in role-play exercises and use teaching aids (dynamic patient simulators, anatomical models, etc.) in order to acquire professional skill sets in a protective environment.
The workshops incorporated into the course curriculum include: the management of pharmacological therapy, blood transfusions, therapeutic education for safe discharge, simulations for the development of decision-making or problem-solving skills, etc.
