    Author : Katarina Göransson; Örebro universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Accuracy; Canadian Triage and Acuity Scale; concordance; decision making; emergency department; patient scenarios; registered nurses; survey; think aloud; triage; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS Caring sciences; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN Vårdvetenskap; Vårdvetenskap; Nursing Science;

    Abstract : Successful triage is the basis for sound emergency department (ED) care, whereas unsuccessful triage could result in adverse outcomes. ED triage is a rather unexplored area in the Swedish health care system. This thesis contributes to our understanding of this complex nursing task. READ MORE

  2. 2. Teamwork training using patient simulation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Clinical Science, Intervention and Technology

    Author : Lisbet Meurling; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Teamwork is an important factor in safe healthcare. Simulation based team training (SBTT) is a method to gain the non-technical skills important for proficient teamwork. This thesis evaluated SBTT using different modalities and evaluation levels, looking at whole teams of either medical students or full professionals. READ MORE

  3. 3. Virtual Patient Simulation: implementation and use in assessment

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Learning, Informatics, Management and Ethics

    Author : Mihaela Botezatu; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; medical education;

    Abstract : Virtual Patient Simulation systems (VPS) are educational tools now considered to have entered the mainstream of medical education. VPS support not only undergraduate learning - where they are used mostly for learning and training clinical reasoning -, but for continuing medical education and patient orientation as well.
