Whitehead, C. and Harding, T. (2006) Excellence in education: involving the patient, clinician and commerce Gastrointestinal Nursing, 4, (4), pp. 10-15.

Record type: Article


This article discusses the experiences of lecturers evaluating and developing teaching methods within a gastrointestinal (GI) and live post-qualifying diploma/degree module. The benefits of a conference morning that formed part of the educational strategy within this module are appraised with regard to the current literature. The conference that morning included patient, clinician and commerce representation, all aiming to promote and share knowledge regarding GI and liver disease. Two years of evaluation data is provided and its relevance to the conference morning and module is discussed. The authors are lecturers at the University of Southampton in pre- and post-qualifying nursing programmes and module leaders for the GI and liver module, accessible to registered nurses studying at diploma or degree level. Their current and recent GI and liver nursing experience informs the module content. The module is a 5-day programme, with a summative assessment of students’ ability to meet the module learning outcomes. This includes completion of practice competencies and academic writing demonstrating reflection and critical analysis.
