Call for Problem-Based Learning Discussions (PBLDs)

We invite you to submit a Problem-Based Learning Discussion (PBLD) to be considered for presentation at SCA's 41st Annual Meeting & Workshops at the in Chicago, IL from May 18-21, 2019.

PBLDs are small-group one hour sessions. Moderators will present a case scenario followed by discussion questions for participants to provide their opinions.

A PBLD creates a learning situation for participants to apply their knowledge to answer clinical dilemmas created in the case presentation. PBLDs serve to open up new topics of discussion, suggest alternative management strategies, and encourage communication among participants.

Submit a PBLD Now!
