Patient focused case based learning: Mixed method analysis in clinical science learning

Paramedicine, a relatively new profession in comparison to nursing and medicine in Australia, has progressed positively in the last 20-30 years. This paper reports on a research project designed to investigate the student experiences and perceptions of a patient focused case based learning model designed to increase student activity and engagement with the learning materials in two undergraduate courses within a three year bachelor degree in paramedicine. A patient focused case based learning model with greater emphasis on teacher socialisation with students, helped draw links between the students’ prior foundational science knowledge to patient presentation clinical scenarios. This study builds on the findings of previous research investigating patient focused case based learning by adding student interactivity into learning and teaching research design and identifies an agenda for further research into paramedic curriculum.
