Goals & Objectives:
Our overall objective is to promote gender and health education within
an InterProfessional (IP) Context, and the Specific Aims include the
- To increase health science student's awareness of the roles,
behaviours and relationships between and among women, men, boys and
girls in relation to issues of poverty and health from an interprofessional
- To develop and evaluate a curricular model incorporating an existing
module from the Gender and Health Collaborative Curriculum project
in order to create a generalizable model that would enable existing
educational resources to be adapted to sustainable resources for teaching
gender and health within an IP context.
- To provide a venue for training faculty to understand how to facilitate
gender and health issues in an interprofessional context.
A three part model is being developed to discuss issues of gender and
poverty within an interprofessional context.
Three groups of 5 students each, will
- First, meet in a facilitated small group
- Second, individually work though an electronic scenario based
on issues of gender & poverty
- Third, re-group to discuss findings
The scenario we have developed is reflective of the demographic mix
for Hamilton's population, and includes issues of poverty throughout
a family's life. Students can select their learning objectives
from several presented; for example, health care issues, legislative
issues, policy issues. We are currently working toward a Tutor Guide.
Dates will be advertised for late winter, early spring 2008.
