I think presentations should be challenging and interactive. There are many ways this could be done, e.g with open ended questions, practical problems, asking for a vote eg a 24 year old potential cornea donor died in Intensive therapy, he was in near drowning 5 days previously but resuscitated. Cause of death Cardiac arrest no sepsis. Would you take the corneas if yes why if no why. What other mitigating factors may be present.
Would the decision lie with the RP of the tissue establishment or the clinician?
I think presenting such cases will put donor selection in the practical context.
In now my long experience in training just doing a PPT which is more than 20 min without engaging the audience is not very productive.
One can also think of smaller group workshops presenting cases and scenarios in a plenary
A pure presentation without interaction with the participants will probably not lead to the desired result. In any case, the participants should be actively involved – Case studies are definitely helpful.
– It is important that it is interactive, modern and tested on staff before release. Preferably there should be an introductory film-clip (maybe animated) presenting the education. Animation makes it easy to produce in different languages with voice over. Then there should be case studies. The interactive part provides a means to Control a base knowledge with possibility for diploma/certification. I am sure there are a lot of certification programs out there on internet to study to find a nice form of presentation.
– It should be different for different SOHos because if there is irrelevant material/information that not concerns each different audience, they will not find it relevant.
– For blood donation, plasma donation, there is a large staff-population with varying background in different countries. The information must fit both those with nursing background and medical knowledge as well as lab technicians and those with other backgrounds.
