Searchable database of resources

Welcome to the tEACH searchable database! Here you will find lots of different kinds of tools to help you with designing education and assessment on communication skills for health professional learners. While many tools are designed for students of medicine (though there are some for other disciplines such as dentistry, nursing, etc) they can be adapted for other health professions. Please note that many of these tools are comprehensive, thus many of our “Facilitator Guides” include instructions for teachers, instructions for students, Simulated Patient cases, handouts, lecture notes, etc.

You may search the database either by scrolling down the list below, or narrowing your search by choosing from the drop down menus on the right (for example “what to teach” or “assessment tools”, a specific topic, discipline or language). You can also narrow your search by entering a key word (such as a specific subject, author name, etc) in the key word search box. As an example, if you are looking for tools for teaching students how to give information effectively you could click on giving information and/or explanation and planning and a list of relevant tools will be selected for you.

When you click on a tool title you will be linked to a general description of the tool and can download the resource which includes additional information regarding the tool, including who it was designed for and any tips regarding its use. If you have difficulty finding the types of tools you are looking for, feel free to contact us at using our contact form.

All of the tools have been peer -reviewed by members of the tEACH committee. Thank you for your interest in our resources.
