On 29 November 2023 the Mercy teaching staff held their first summer elective workshop including three different learning stations.
Basic Suturing – Each student was given a suturing kit and a stuffed animal to learn and demonstrate different basic sutures.
Common Problems in normal birth – The students were in small groups where they had complex discussions about different complications that could arise during a normal birth, throughout this discussion they used models to demonstrate how they would navigate these problems if they were to happen.
Communication Skills – An open discussion was held with the students about how important communication skills are and how they could improve their basic communications skills.
Overall, this workshop was a big hit! We asked students for their feedback on the workshop in which 92% of students said they learnt something new and 91.8% of students said that the workshop helped develop their existing skills.
