Abstract

Problem based learning for health personnel This book describes the problem based learning (PBL) educational approach and its application in the health professionals education. Problem based learning (PBL) is a student centred approach to active learning originating from McMaster university in 1970. We can find its roots in John Dewey's approach to education. The author wrote 5 chapters (1-2-3-4-10). The first chapter describes the rationale and the history of problem based learning. The second chapter tries to answer the question: “Is PBL effective?” and illustrates the results of the main systematic reviews concerning student and teacher satisfaction, academic achievements, major competencies acquired by students comparing to traditional curricula. Since PBL is not only an educational methodology, but it is also a curriculum organizer, the third chapter describes how to plan an entire academic curriculum to train health personnel, including a lot of examples of curricula for the training of nurses and physiotherapists at international level. The fourth chapter is dedicated to problem construction, the different formats of problems and taxonomy, how to write a good problem for educational purpose. . Chapter 10 is dedicated to the introduction of PBL in continuing education of inter professional health professions. The book is the most exhaustive one about this subject in Italian language.
