SL3 - IPE in Allied Health Science & Engaging Students through Service-Learning

From the 2022 Clinical Laboratory Educators Conference (recorded 3/14/2022)
Presented by Kristen Pesavento, MA, MLS(ASCP)CM & Jie Gao, PhD, MLS(ASCP)CM

This speed learning session includes 2 presentations:

Interprofessional Education in Allied Health Science

  • Laboratory medicine has often been referred to as the hidden profession. One way to increase the visibility is to expose others in the health sciences to our scope of practice. This session will detail interprofessional education sessions hosted in a school of applied health sciences that brought together MLS, dietetics, and exercise science students.
Engaging Students through Service-Learning Activities in a Laboratory Course
  • Service learning is an effective pedagogy and not specific to any one curriculum. It benefits all participants, students, faculty, academic institutions, and the communities. This presentation provides an application of service-learning activities in a laboratory course for MLS education.
At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:
  • Identify professions and college majors who would benefit from interprofessional collaboration with laboratory education programs.
  • Design case based learning activities to relate laboratory testing to other health disciplines.
  • Facilitate interprofessional discussion on diagnosis, treatment plan, and long term management of patient health status.
  • Identify the essential elements in a service-learning course
  • Design and develop a service-learning course in CLS programs
  • Implement and evaluate a service-learning course
