Prof Sue McAllister: Pathways to high quality health professional educational research and translation



Westmead Hospital: WECC level 1 Case Study Room

High quality education is a key contributor to high quality practice and therefore it is important that it is underpinned by quality evidence. However, health professional education (HPE) research is a relatively new field of research, asks questions that may require research methods that may not be familiar to health professionals and, like most fields of research, has a large translational gap. This presentation will be a beginner’s guide to engaging in a high quality research to practice continuum in health professional education.

Professor Sue McAllister is Deputy Dean Strategy at the Faculty of Health Sciences at The University of Sydney, having previously been the Associate Dean for Work Integrated Learning. Sue has over 35 years experience as a speech pathologist, clinical educator, project manager, and academic. She seeks to understand the nature of health professional competency - what is it and how can educators facilitate its development through university and workplace based learning and assessment to ensure that the public is well served by our graduate health professionals?
