What is this article about?

Problem-based learning originated back in the 1960s. Since then, learning through problem-solving has become widely valued as a way to empower learners to conduct their own research, integrate theory and practice and apply their knowledge to create workable solutions to a problem. It’s also the most frequently used definition of PBL within healthcare education. Why? Because all healthcare educators are tasked to create learning outcomes that prepare students for real-world work placements. Problem‐based learning meets this need and offers a workable approach that allows students to gain knowledge in a safe environment, whilst at the same time solving real-life problems.

There are so many different subjects on Ausmed! I thought it'd be hard to find the resources I need for complicated procedures or rarer conditions, but they've had everything I've looked for so far.
