Prevention of deskilling

Healthcare professionals and industry representatives talking about the way in which deskilling can be prevented.

In the previous article, you learned about deskilling and over-reliance. We asked healthcare professionals and industry representatives whether they think these two phenomena might occur and how they could be prevented. This first video shows the responses to the issue of deskilling.

Some experts seem to indicate that deskilling may indeed occur in the future, or is already happening at this moment. They provide some suggestions on how to prevent this. However, other experts also seem to indicate that these phenomena are not necessarily a bad thing, or that it might even lead to “upskilling” of the healthcare professions.

Which experts do you agree with? Do you think deskilling should be prevented? If so, would you use a method mentioned by one of the experts, or can you think of another way to prevent it? Share your thoughts in the discussion section.
