TCELT Launch of Comic and Infographic

The Covid Rollercoaster

Multiple and Multi-dimensional Transitions of 2020 Healthcare Graduates

28 September 17:00 - 18:00pm (UK time), online through Teams

What happened to medicine, nursing and dentistry graduates, due to move to practice, at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic? This longitudinal study explored the impact of the pandemic on their multiple and multi-dimensional transitions. The purpose was to identify how ongoing support can be provided to healthcare graduates for successful transitions and wellbeing in times of unanticipated pressure. In this study interview data were collected at up to 3 time points, and the findings were turned into a comic and infographic.

In this session, we will briefly share the main findings of the study and their implications for research, policy and practice. We will then discuss the rationale for, and the process behind, creating comics and an infographic to share the results.
