Performance based medical care
The medical profession involves various aspects of performance, from face-to-face interactions with patients to procedure-based work. This raises questions about the role of theatrical preparation and education in the medical field in terms of communication and performance. Effective communication in healthcare is critical, as research suggests that ineffective communication in healthcare is one of the leading causes of medical errors and patient harm. The use of theatrical education may increase the communication skills of aspiring doctors, preparing them for the complex and demanding role of a medical professional. Another aspect of the medical profession is performance, with research showing that theatrical education can increase performative skills of medical professionals. Increasing performative skills sin medical professionals in terms of improvisation and presentation skills have been proven to provide better patient care. Studies indicate that traditional medical education does not provide all the necessary skills to become a competent doctor, and performance-based training can fill this gap. Therefore, new methods of teaching, such as theatrical education, can help the medical profession advance and decrease the gap between doctors and patients. The use of theatrical education may also increase the accessibility of becoming a doctor for those who do not learn by typical methods. Further research into the effectiveness of theatrical education in medical school is called for to enhance the training of aspiring doctors and prepare them for the complex and demanding role of a medical professional. By exploring new ideas and introducing innovative methods of teaching, the medical profession can continue to advance and improve the delivery of healthcare.
