    Theory in your health professional research

    Dr Lara Varpio 

    Description:  Incorporating theory into your medical education scholarship is now expected research practice. Unfortunately, for many clinician-educators, this challenge is daunting because there are few, if any, resources on  how  to incorporate the theory. This workshop is designed to specifically address that challenge. 

    At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to: 

    • Distinguish between post-positivist and constructivist paradigms 
    • Contrast inductive and deductive reasoning 
    Differentiate between 4 different ways of using theory  in health professions education research.

    Dr Lara Varpio is Professor of Medicine, and Associate Director of Research for the Center for Health Professions Education at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHS). Dr. Varpio spent the first 6 years of her career at the University of Ottawa, Canada before moving to Washington DC, USA to join USUHS.

    Interprofessional education: What is it and why it matters

    Associate Professor Margo Brewer 

    This session is aimed at health professional educators wanting an introduction to interprofessional education (IPE). This interactive session will explore the drivers for this approach within health professional education, what IPE is (and isn’t), and the general principles of effective IPE. Participants are encouraged to build on this foundational knowledge by joining the second webinar in the series 'Approaches to interprofessional education: Lessons for success' on October 21, which explores IPE within four different contexts: the classroom, online, simulation and clinical placements.

    Margo Brewer has over 10 years’ experience leading interprofessional education (IPE) at Curtin University, and completed her PhD in leadership on this topic. Margo has won multiple teaching excellence awards for her work in IPE including an Australian Government Office for Learning and Teaching award and the International Best Practice award at a World Business Capability Congress. She has over 20 IPE publications including a HERDSA guide to embedding IPE in the curriculum, and has provided expert advice on IPE to over 40 universities and health services across the globe.
