  • Professional Skills in Communication and Prioritization in Acute Care; TDG; [Principal Investigator] HK$296,438; 14/03/2022 – 13/03/2023;
    (1) To develop an interprofessional communication and clinical reasoning programme specific for acute care;
    (2) To determine the effectiveness of specific teaching in interprofessional communication and prioritization by comparing the performance of students in face-to-face teaching and distance learning.

  • Peerassisted learning in interprofessional scenariobased simulation; TDG; [Principal Investigator] HK$289,020; 01/01/2020 – 30/06/2021;
    (1) To explore if scenario-based simulation provides students an opportunity to acquire the perspective of the patient and those of interprofessional colleagues; 
    (2) To investigate if students would develop better understanding of pathophysiology of clinical conditions through scenario writing; and
    (3) To extend the potential of simulation by asking students to write, deliver and debrief simulation scenarios.

  • Developing and evaluating inter-professional blended team-based learning and clinical simulation education in medical and nursing curricula; TDG; [Principal Investigator] HK$283,500; 01/01/2019 – 30/06/2020;
    Aim: This project is designed to deliver the interprofessional clinical education in senior medical and nursing students through team-based learning and clinical simulation, based on crew resource management (CRM) training, to enhance the cognitive and interpersonal skills needed to manage resources within an organized system. This is a new initiative internationally to deliver the course with blended team-based learning classroom teaching and clinical simulation so as to enhance student engagement throughout the course. The evaluation is of sequential explanatory mixed design study, which is a two-phase design where the quantitative data (externally validated surveys) is collected first followed by qualitative data collection to further explain and interpret the findings from the quantitative phase.

  • Shaping Our Health: Cross-Cultural Policy-Making; TDG; [Principal Investigator] HK$69,550; 09/01/2019 – 30/06/2020;
    Aim: To develop an interdisciplinary Common Core course for HKU.
