WHY IS STORYAIDEU IMPORTANT?
Current healthcare training relies upon a comprehensive understanding of the bio-medical model of medicine. However, it has been recognised that a curriculum that incorporates a more rounded model is crucial. To ensure new model of healthcare education, storytelling is a crucial tool for educators to show the hidden and silent stories of patients, healthcare professionals, loved ones, and vulnerable people.
WHAT DID STORYAIDEU ACHIEVE?
StoryAidEU aimed to ‘humanise healthcare education through storytelling’. This was achieved by producing a number of training resources that can be used by educators and students to teach and learn.
HOW DID STORYAIDEU MEET ITS GOALS?
The project conducted (through a number of data gathering techniques) a full review of interprofessional education tools, an assessment of humanism, and conducted essential research into how storytelling approaches can be used to improve healthcare education training. These three areas were combined to create a dedicated educational curriculum for healthcare educators to promote humanism in healthcare. All educational resources can be found through our StoryAidEU Academy:
