PROJECT: MEDHAX (2018-19)
Components of pre-clinical learning in Evidence-Based Medicine (EBM) and Health Sociology (HS) are essential elements of practicing person-based medicine. Medical students often struggle with understanding the relevance and applicability of these concepts to future practice.
We thereby undertook a project funded by Monash Rural Health which led us to create and develop an educational integrative resource called MEDHAX to provide clinically relevant connections for pre-clinical healthcare students.
MEDHAX is an interactive open-access online platform that integrates and applies important aspects of EBM and HS within the pre-clinical learning environment. MEDHAX is a unique ‘by students for students’ created resource to assist future students in applying and integrating challenging concepts of EBM and HS; within a person-based approach.
