Daring to be different: teaching patient-centred care

Kerry Reid-Searl
27 May 2019

have been a nurse educator for over 28 years and it was in 2011 that I had a realization that I needed to take a different approach in my teaching to show nurses how to best care for patients. I first came to this realization whilst teaching a class of first year nursing students perform dressing changes on a task trainer. The students seemed only fixated on the dressings and, as there was no person attached to the task trainer with feelings or a voice to express discomfort, no one seem to consider the patient. It was this that gave me the idea to employ a different type of role play.
