Fracture

IPE on Fracture introduces to students the importance of interprofessional team approach to deliver holistic care for patients suffering from fracture. Through authentic clinical case analysis, teams are guided about the importance of understanding the interface of various factors in managing patients suffering from fracture.

Using the combined pedagogical strengths of team-based and case-based learning, students are trained to be collaborative-practice ready. This is participated in by students from MBBS, Nursing, Pharmacology & Pharmacy, Physiotherapy (Open University of Hong Kong), Physiotherapy (Tung Wah College) and Social Work who are formed into interprofessional teams of 5-7 members. A team of content experts facilitates the implementation of learning activities.
