#KeyLIME Podcast 391 Method Consult Series with Lara Varpio – Episode 10 [Theory and Frameworks – A New Approach]

We’re embarking on another set of reruns for a few weeks while the hosts use this time to evaluate the impact and future of KeyLIME. We hope to have some news soon, but in the meantime, we know you’ll love this series of Method Consults by Dr. Lara Varpio.

As a PHD trained scientist working in the field, it is of Lara’s opinion that her job is to help others gain the skills and expertise needed to engage in Health Professions Education scholarship and research.

In this consult, originally released in February 2022, Lara tackles a topic she is often asked about: the distinction between theory, theoretical frameworks and conceptual frameworks. Although she has explored the topic in the past, she is taking a different approach this time – using concrete examples, found in an article entitled Intersections of power: videoconferenced debriefing of a rural interprofessional simulation team by an urban interprofessional debriefing team. (Dalinghaus K, G Regehr and L Nimmon. Perspect Med Educ. 2021; 10286–292.)
