iPhone and iPad in medicine teaching and clinical practice: Medicine 2.0 #med2

Saturday, September 17, 2011

I'm here at Medicine 2.0 and I'm attending a session titled, "iPhone and iPad in medicine and health sciences: experiences in teaching and clinical practice." Here I am at Stanford where medical students are using iPads in the classroom. The presenter was Rhoda Weiss-Lambrou, Professor of occupational therapy at the School of Rehabilitation, Faculty of medicine, Université de Montréal.

Mobile tools like the iPhone and iPad are being used by medical students and health care professionals. In particular, hospitals and adopting these mobile devices to improve communication, collaboration, or networking. Mobile learning is driving greater interaction and participation. In the rehabilitation setting, clinicians are using mobile features as therapeutic tools with patients.

During the presentation, the speaker spoke about useful online resources like Facebook, Dropbox, YouTube, SlideShare, Wikipedia, and others. Students in the health professions are using these Web 2.0 tools to enhance their educational experience and to share their information with other students.
