The use of drama in health education

Nurs Stand. 1993 Jan;7(15-16):30-2.


The focus of Project 2000 courses has been on the development of a health rather than sickness concept throughout the curriculum. Such a fundamental change in emphasis requires, it is argued, a different concept of the preparation of students in appropriate attitudes, skills and knowledge. The author describes an innovative approach to education that uses drama to improve communication skills in a group of nursing students.
