HEALTHCARE THEATRE DURING A PANDEMIC
Despite the textbooks, lectures and study sessions, future health professionals can face many unknowns during their first interactions with patients. Will they ask the right questions? Will they know the right answers? How will they connect with their patients? For the past 12 years, students at UD have been able to safely practice their technical and interpersonal skills in a safe environment through the Healthcare Theatre program. Read the UDaily article about how telehealth and in-person COVID-19 scenarios help train future healthcare professionals.
