Evaluation of a strategy to improve hand hygiene behaviour of medical students whilst learning in the Clinical Skills Centre

Good hand hygiene is a fundamental clinical skill, commonly learnt early in curricula.  Hand hygiene practice in the workplace has been extensively studied and compliance is often suboptimal. There are assumptions that hand hygiene practice in the simulated setting will be valued and transfer to the workplace. We therefore set up a study to evaluate the impact of a human factors approach on hand gel use.

Exploring the MAP: What effect does the MAPAS Admissions Process have on academic outcomes within the Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences at the University of Auckland?

In 2006, MAPAS (Māori and Pacific Admission Scheme) introduced a new admissions process for Māori and Pacific students applying to the Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences (FMHS) to include assessment via a Multiple Mini Interview (MMI) , Mathematics test and English test . This presentation will review the MAPAS admissions process from 2008 to 2012 and explore the predictive effect of MAPAS admission process variables on academic outcomes within the FMHS.

Presented by: Dr Elana Curtis
