Keele case-based teaching resources

Frances Mortimer's picture


Resource Description: 

Keele University Medical School educators have developed their own cases based around four prominent types of waste within the NHS: food, pharmaceutical, clinical and fuel, which they have given permission to be shared though the SHE network to support sustainable healthcare education elsewhere.

The cases have been designed for core teaching of 3rd year medical student, in a problem-based learning (PBL) format. Each case is accompanied by targeted questions to guide students’ discussion and help them brainstorm potential solutions and the barriers and opportunities of their implementation.  Students are also provided with supporting information for each case based on the published scientific literature, NHS Sustainable Development Unit (SDU) documents and figures, videos, relevant case studies from the SDU and / or Centre for Sustainable Healthcare (CSH) and local initiatives.
