Students will learn about the healthcare system in Hong Kong and the roles of medical and allied professionals in health care. Students will interview patients from The Alliance of Patients’ Mutual Help Organisation (APMHO) and understand chronic health problems, patient experience of hospital and community care and professionalism. Students from different disciplines are required to work collaboratively in group to complete a reflective digital assignment. They would be divided into groups and arranged to interview health care service user, including individual(s) with chronic health problem or family carers, to share their experiences related to interactions with health professionals in various situations. The group will then have to capture either their positive and/or negative experiences, and present it through the means of digital storytelling (a short video clip that combines multimedia, including images, sound, text or video).
