OBJECTIVES: The main objective of the study is to determine the efficiency in the execution of the START (Simple Triage and Rapid Treatment) triage, comparing Virtual Reality (VR) to Clinical Simulation (CS) in a Mass Casualty Incident (MCI). The secondary objective is to determine the stress produced in the health professionals in the two situations described. MATERIALS: A comparative study on the efficiency and the stress during triage in a MSI was conducted. The basal and post levels of salivary α-amylase (sAA) activity were measured in all the participants before and after the simulation...

BACKGROUND: The demand for more creative and innovative nurses and together with the rapid expansion of nurse education in Mainland China have called for new approaches to student learning. Challenge Based Learning, an active student-directed approach was incorporated into an elective course in an undergraduate nursing programme. Initially, the students were given some big ideas about the real world. They worked together in small groups to identify the most challenging problems from these ideas, develop some innovative solutions, formulate an action plan for a selected solution, carry out the actions and evaluate the outcome...

BACKGROUND: Debriefing involves the active participation of learners to identify and close gaps in knowledge and skills. Varied debriefing methods are used in simulation, but no empirical studies have examined the effectiveness of peer-led debriefing in simulation using standardized patients. The purpose of this study was to compare the effects of two debriefing methods (instructor-led vs. peer-led) on nursing skills, knowledge, self-confidence, and quality of debriefing among undergraduate nursing students in South Korea...

OBJECTIVES: Overweight and obesity during pregnancy is a risk to the health of mother and child. Midwives can modify this key risk factor by providing weight management interventions to women before and during pregnancy. This study investigated social cognitive determinants of pre-clinical student midwives' intention to provide weight management intervention in preconception and antenatal clinical contexts. Social cognitive determinants from the theory of planned behaviour (attitudes, subjective norms, perceived behavioural control) and self-determination theory (autonomous motivation) were used to predict pre-clinical students' intentions once they enter practice...

BACKGROUND: A need for improved education and training for hospital staff caring for patients in the last year of life was identified at an urban UK hospital. Sequential Simulation (SqS Simulation™) is a type of simulation that recreates a patient's journey, considering the longitudinal element of care and how this might impact on the patient's experiences, wishes and needs. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to investigate a new end of life care training intervention for multi-professional hospital staff, and its effect on their confidence in managing patients at the end of their life...

The advancements in and affordability of technologies offer increasing opportunities to modernise healthcare education into packages developed to meet the expectations and requirements of the digital generation. Purposefully designed and tested Virtual Reality Learning Environments (VRLE) can offer healthcare students the means to access and revisit learning materials in ways that enhance education and meet a range of needs; including those with specific learning differences and those who have traditionally been disenfranchised...

BACKGROUND: Medical simulation has become an essential educational tool in the curricula of healthcare professionals. A literature review revealed a knowledge gap in healthcare simulation education with respect to the technological expertise required to operate highly sophisticated simulation equipment. With this motivation, a case study was designed to determine if implementing on-site technological expertise allows for the facile navigation of high fidelity manikins. Next, a research study was conducted to evaluate engineering students understanding of simulation, and their interest to attend a program in medical simulation...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this evaluation was to assess the efficacy of a training in improving competence to address sexual assault among Emergency Department (ED) staff, as well as to compare in-person and online training modalities. METHODS: A total of 1564 staff from 76 EDs in acute care hospitals across Ontario participated in either on-site (n = 828 staff) or online (n = 736 staff) training sessions, of whom 1366 (87%) completed both a pre- and post-training questionnaire...

Throughout nursing, spirituality is a recognized domain of patient care, but nurses feel ill prepared by their nursing education to provide care that is spiritual in nature to patients and their families. Incorporating spiritual care into nursing curricula is challenging in light of the amount of topics for healthcare learning. Open Journey Theory is based on the merging of two grounded theories, one teaching and one learning theory, and is the suggested framework for integrating spirituality and spiritual care across all levels of nursing education...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this review of the literature is to synthesis the knowledge attained about determinants of student-faculty relationships and its impact on student outcomes. While adding to the body knowledge, the researchers discuss the importance, barriers, and facilitators to student-faculty academic relationships in nursing education. DESIGN: We conducted a narrative literature review using a modified version of the framework of the Population, Intervention, Comparison, and Outcome method to develop the research question for this review...

BACKGROUND: Low academic success rates lead to fewer than the required number of nurses entering the national health systems, impacting on the supply of nurses and with negative consequences for global health care since low nurse-to-patient ratios are associated with an increase of patients' adverse outcomes. OBJECTIVES: This study was mainly aimed at documenting any of the academic outcomes' potential predictors among Nursing Degree Program (NDP) students' characteristics...

BACKGROUND: Numerous articles have sought to identify the impact of educational interventions for improving evidence-based practice (EBP) amongst nurses, most of these focus on skills and knowledge acquired. No systematic review has explored whether this educational input translates into improved patient outcomes. OBJECTIVES: To review the evidence on (1) The change in patient outcomes following educational interventions to support practising nurses in implementing EBP...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: The ability to be a reflective practitioner is recognized by nursing regulatory bodies as a component of professional competence and becoming a reflective practitioner is an essential part of learning to become a nurse. In this multi-site study, we explored undergraduate nursing students' beliefs, capacities and intentions to participate in reflective, debriefing discussions facilitated by clinical instructors. At the same time, we tested the effectiveness of a period of rest and an intervention designed to refresh and inspire them...

BACKGROUND: The ability of midwives to provide empathic care that is culturally appropriate is critical for women to feel accepted by the midwives who support them. Australia is a culturally diverse society, yet there is evidence of poorer maternity outcomes for some women and infants, related to their cultural background. OBJECTIVES: This study's objective was to evaluate the effectiveness of an education program for student midwives. The program was intended to increase the cultural empathy of future midwives, to help ensure greater cultural safety and optimal maternity outcomes across all sections of Australian society...

BACKGROUND: In the face of rapid digitalisation and ever-higher educational requirements for healthcare professionals, it is important that health science teachers possess the relevant core competences. The education of health science teachers varies internationally and there is no consensus about the minimum qualifications and experience they require. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this systematic review was to describe the health science teachers' competences and the factors related to it...
