journal contributionposted on 06.12.2017, 00:00 by Margaret McallisterMargaret Mcallister
Contemporary nursing education in Australia needs to respond to the imperatives facing clinical practice - that nurses be work-ready, resilient, multi-skilled, good team communicators, compassionate and responsive to the diverse needs of clients and families. Transformative learning principles combined with effective, action based learning experiences can provide a focused pedagogical basis for cultivating and achieving these graduate outcomes. In this paper, a novel framework is presented that provides a structure to support educators and curriculum development. The STAR framework, which stands for Sensitivity, Taking action and reflection, is easily remembered and embodies key aspects of transformative learning.
