The Need for Diversity in Health Science Curriculum - from Textbook Figures to Student Leadership: National Geographic Learning's Virtual Learning Series
Join us for a panel discussion on the importance teaching patient diversity across introductory health science courses with a live Q&A and classroom/lab strategies for starting conversations with students. Most Anatomy & Physiology/Health Science textbooks of the past primarily used young, healthy, male patients in figures, drawings, and contextual examples, but it is crucial that our students are prepared to work with and support diverse patients varying in age, race, and gender. The leading introductory health science textbook, DHO Health Science is known for staying up-to-date with key issues in health care and offering career ready practices for preparing for the world of work, including knowledge of cultural diversity as a key skill. A key focus for the brand-new editions of Introductory Health Care titles for DHO, Health Science, as well as Medical Terminology for Health Professions and Body Structures and Functions – Anatomy & Physiology, was updating artwork throughout the curriculum to include diverse bodies for a more realistic introduction to as well as including potential pathology and the role of aging as students learn about body systems and patient care procedures.
