Mental Workload with Professor Aidan Byrne
We all have a limited capacity for real-time processing of new information. How does this affect our learning and our everyday professional roles. How do we account for this limitation in medical education? How does it affect our roles as learners, educators and assessors? Can we measure this mental workload? Is it the same as Cognitive Load. Phil discusses all this and more with Professor Aidan Byrne. Aidan is a consultant Anaesthetist and Deputy Executive Medical Director at the Swansea Bay University Health Board. He is also an Honorary Professor at the Swansea University Medical School. He has published many studies measuring and examining mental workload in medical education.
