|Title:||A Mixed Methodology Retrospective Analysis of the Learning Experience of Final Year Medical Students Attached to a 1-week Intensive Palliative Care Course Based at an Australian University||Authors:||Tai, Vicki ;Cameron-Taylor, Erica ;Clark, Katherine||Affliation:||University of Newcastle||Issue Date:||Sep-2014||Source:||Volume 31, Issue 6, pp. 636-640||Journal title:||American Journal of Hospice & Palliative Medicine||Abstract:||AIMS: To assess the experiences in an established 1-week palliative care placement for final year medical students attending the University of Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia. DESIGN: A retrospective, mixed methodology, consecutive cohort. Student data collected included satisfaction feedback scores, open-ended questions and palliative medicine multiple-choice results before and after their 1-week placement. RESULTS: Although there were high satisfaction ratings and objective improvements (P < .001) seen in multiple-choice quiz scores, a subset did not improve. Practical issues such as prescribing, opioid use, and conversions were particularly valued by students. More teaching time and practical experience were requested. DISCUSSION: Given the importance of palliative care teaching within a medical degree, the results suggest continued development and review of palliative medical education are essential||URI:||https://elibrary.cclhd.health.nsw.gov.au/cclhdjspui/handle/1/812||DOI:||10.1177/1049909113496451||Pubmed:||http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23884901||ISSN:||1938-2715||Publicaton type:||Journal Article||Keywords:||Aged
