Introduction to the Learning Activity: Patient Safety


Introduction to the learning activity

Intended Learning Objective (ILO):

  • Student(s) will read about, reflect on and discuss a concept of Patient Safety from a Global Perspective
  • Student(s) will collaboratively communicate virtually
  • Student(s) will give and receive constructive feedback related to the topic via a virtual exchange with international peers.

Group composition

Make sure that you are in contact with each other and prepare before meeting online; this promotes meaningful communication. You will be provided with a schedule for your meeting sessions: Time schedule for meetings. See further under Main Activity.


  • Main time for online MOODLE meetings in Adobe Connect is  September 22th and September 25th.
  • Deadline for publishing of the 3 issues/aspects of patient safety from your group that you want to address/discuss during the visual collaboration is September 18th: 0900 o'clock (USA time) and 1500 o'clock (Swedish time). This allow your international peers time to review the list. Realistically, you may only get to 1 or 2 topics in the time frame allotted for discussion, but be prepared to have a focus. See assessment criteria below
