We are seeking an evaluator for a program development project funded through the Ontario Bridge Training Program (OBTP) initiative. The project will develop an innovative program curriculum entitled “Communication through Simulation” to facilitate healthcare communication skills for internationally educated health professionals.

Our Communication through Simulation project focuses on the development of an experiential learning program targeting professional communication skills for the health care workplace. Touchstone’s Communication Program completed research on regulated health professions communication competencies in 2016-2017 and developed the 360⁰ Communication Competency Framework in 2017-18. These will serve as the foundation for the program. The project will engage IEHPs, case managers, health care educators, regulators and employers to inform and shape the program content and outcomes and ensure a program that will be impactful at any point along the settlement – integration – retention process.
