A CPD article furthered Sue Clarke’s understanding of the usefulness of concept mapping in health care.

Abstract

Concept mapping is a visual tool that enables the organisation of information to develop knowledge. I have used this technique to teach study skills to healthcare staff preparing to study university-based CPD modules.

The CPD article allowed me to apply this previous use and understanding of concept mapping to my role of project lead.

I appreciate the value of using simulation to provide education to health and social care staff. Reflecting on the CPD article has enabled me to add context and understanding to considerations of how simulation is valuable as a teaching technique.
