Who Am I as a Healthcare Provider?: Identity and Transformative Learning in Virtual Environments
Rachel Umoren (University of Washington, USA) and Natalia Rybas (Indiana University East, USA)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-5225-9679-0.ch009
The U.S. healthcare delivery system relies on the formation of ad hoc teams of experienced, highly trained providers of various specialties. The providers work in interprofessional teams that converge to address situations around acute patient care. Various models of virtual training provide structured opportunities for interprofessional education, whereby learners engage with roles and responsibilities essential for their professions and active collaboration with other team members. This learning is transformative as it influences the development of professional identity and teamwork skills needed for successful collaborative practice in interprofessional teams. This chapter explores the role of training healthcare professional students using virtual simulations and the emerging potential of virtual and augmented reality for health professional education.
