Join Dr. Stella Ng as she dives
into the topic of preparing
healthcare professionals to
navigate the complex social
landscape in healthcare. In this
talk, she will discuss the challenges
that come with teaching social
determinants of health and cultural competence and
why these approaches have received critique. Dr. Ng
will then introduce an alternative approach called
critical pedagogy, which shifts the focus beyond the
self and towards questioning assumptions and societal
power dynamics. By incorporating critical pedagogy
principles, healthcare learners can develop the critical
reflective capabilities necessary to thrive in their
social roles as healthcare professionals. Discover how
personal experiences and relationships can play a
pivotal role in shaping these capabilities, and learn how
critical pedagogy and critical reflection can transform
healthcare for the better!
