Abstract:Brief excerpt from interview: In this course it is almost like the extreme opposite [from a non-place-based], and I think students have a little trouble with that because they're coming out of these associate degree programs with that kind of mentality and processing . . . so now we're telling them 'okay so here pick a culture, pick a health topic, explore it, talk to people. It's not technical. There's no right or wrong answers. Tell us what you think. What do you think is applicable to them? Why do you think it's applicable to them? How do you think you can make it better?' So we're wanting them to think outside the box. One of the challenges that I see in the writing is that a lot of times their solution is how they can address this through education, education, education. Teach the patient . . . but that doesn't work. You can't just teach them and expect that they're going to do it. So kind of thinking out of the box like how are you going to teach this patient in a way that is going to mean anything to them that maybe hopefully they'll go and do what you are asking them to do? So it's really kind of thinking out of the box instead of in our standardized Western way of handling everything. Being creative and a lot more opinion and personal perspective comes into play than the courses that they just left. So that's a little hard for them I think. It's a little bit more personal and . . . less technical and more enjoyable to read because it actually reflects their thinking process a little bit more and how they're interacting with not only themselves but with other people that they're interacting with . . . pulling resources for the assignment.
