Our Working Groups provide opportunities for educators, practitioners, researchers and policy makers within our membership to connect and advance their focused area of practice and research. Working Groups focus on topics that are important to health workforce education and focus on some of the more complex, cross cutting issues related to education and training. Each group aims to benefit a multi-stakeholder and inter-disciplinary audience and are accessible to all our members free of charge.
Our INHWE Live service uses our many conferences, project meetings and other events to ensure that we interact even more with INHWE members across the globe. We want to use as many of our physical meetings to live stream, on YouTube, something that our members would find interesting and increase knowledge sharing throughout our network. If you happen to miss the stream, then you can always watch it later on our YouTube channel.
Casting the Network our podcast with each episode we introduce a guest who has a story to tell, research to provide or just something interesting to say. We wanted to find a way to share the stories we hear at our conferences with a much wider audience, including those that have not yet had the chance to attend one of our meetings. Casting the Network is sponsored by Lecturio, a global leader in digital medical education. To find out more visit: lecturio.com
Our Discussion Forums provide a space for our members to interact with colleagues from across the globe on issues that are important to them. The general discussion section allows for in depth discussion on a range of topics while each working group also maintains a forum dedicated to them. The forum also provides a space for participants at each INHWE event to continue their discussion online after meeting in person.

Interprofessional and Team Based Learning

Alt

The World Health Organisation believes that there is sufficient evidence to indicate that effective interprofessional education enables effective collaborative practice. The aims of the Interprofessional and Team Based Learning Working Group is to encourage discussion and research in this important area. Interprofessional education can be defined as when two or more professions learn with, from and about each other to improve collaborative practice and quality of care.

Future Proofing Healthcare Education

Digital solutions have the potential to radically transform both health systems and education. Digital technologies, including eHealth advancements, aim to tackle complicated service issues by creating smarter healthcare processes and reducing the workload of healthcare professionals. However, health professionals’ digital skills, along with he digital skills of educators, often fall short of the required level to use such new technology.

Essential Skills for Health Professionals

Soft or transversal skills are commonly overlooked in health workforce education but provide some of the foundations for patient care and healthcare delivery. This Working Group will provide a space to discuss the common difficulties, challenges and opportunities in teaching such skills to healthcare professionals across the globe.

Health Workforce Policy and Research

The importance of sustainable health workforce with the right combined skills is increasingly recognised across the globe. This Working Group aims to bridge the gap between policy makers, practitioners and educators by breaking down policy changes (such as planning, forecasting, legal and gender issues) and providing a platform to discuss what this means for health professional education, training and development.
