Transcript of "Transferrable information management skills through the use of simulations to enhance real-life applications in hospitals"

  1. 1. Transferable information management skills through the use of simulations to enhance real-life applications in hospitals. Huan Vo-Tran Bernadette Welch Sue Reynolds
  2. 2. Outline <ul><li>Background </li></ul><ul><li>The Project </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Participants </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Recruitment of students </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Simulations </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Projects completed for DaNang hospital </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Evaluation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Lessons Learnt </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Future Directions </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. Background <ul><li>RMIT University Melbourne has a close working relationship with DaNang General Hospital located in the central highlands of Vietnam. </li></ul><ul><li>This project builds upon an existing 2009 university project in which ICT opportunities were identified for DaNang General Hospital and in particular the Pediatrics Department. </li></ul><ul><li>Funding was sought and was granted to the tune of $40,778 under the University’s Learning and Teaching Investment Fund (LTIF) scheme. </li></ul><ul><li>Management of the project was through the School of Business IT & Logistics in Melbourne and the Information Systems team at RMIT Vietnam. </li></ul>
  4. 5. The Project <ul><li>Project aims: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>To pilot a hybrid model in order to enhance collaborations between RMIT’s Dual Hubs. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The model encompassed two major components which included: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>A simulation to contextualise the industry for the staff and students </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>A Work Integrated Learning (WIL) component in which students were able to participate in real-life applications. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Also a strong focus on cross-cultural relationships </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Duration: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A one year timeframe, broken down into two onsite visits (one each semester) and preparations. </li></ul></ul>
  5. 6. Participants <ul><li>Involved the cooperation and involvement with the following organisations: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>RMIT University – Melbourne </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>RMIT University – Vietnam </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>DaNang General Hospital Vietnam </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Royal Children’s Hospital – Melbourne </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Franco-Vietnam Hospital – Vietnam </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The core team consisted of: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Huan Vo-Tran (IKM Lecturer, School of Business IT& Logistics) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Bernadette Welch (IKM Lecturer, School of Business IT& Logistics) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sue Reynolds (IKM Lecturer, School of Business IT& Logistics) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Siddhi Pittayachawan (IS Lecturer, School of Business IT& Logistics) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Vic Kamay (IS Lecturer, School of Business IT& Logistics) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Christopher Munro (Program Manager, BBBIS – Vietnam) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Hoang Tran (DaNang General Hospital – Vietnam) </li></ul></ul>

  7. 13. Recruitment of Students <ul><li>Recruitment of students involved the following stages: (identical at both hubs) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Initial expressions of interest </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Interviewing potential candidates </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Notification </li></ul></ul><ul><li>In total the following were selected: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>5 Undergraduate IS students from RMIT Vietnam (Both teams) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>2 Undergraduate IS students from RMIT Melbourne (1 st team) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>2 Undergraduate IKM students from RMIT Melbourne (2 nd team) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>3 Postgraduate IM students from RMIT Melbourne (2 nd team) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>In participating in the project, students were credited with 12 credit points </li></ul>
  8. 14. Pre-skills testing <ul><li>The 2009 LTIF project identified possible projects that could completed with this undertaking. </li></ul><ul><li>Students were asked to supply a self assessment of their skills in order to allocate appropriate projects, it included areas such as: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Personal skills </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Theoretical skills </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Work-based skills </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Cross-cultural skills </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Team-based skills </li></ul></ul>
  9. 17. Simulations <ul><li>Simulations were conducted in both counties and involved all students. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Royal Children's Hospital (Melbourne) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Franco-Vietnam Hospital (Ho Chi Minh City) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Allowed for contextualisation of the environment for both the staff and students. </li></ul><ul><li>In addition to the simulations, a case study was formulated which included many aspects similar to that of DaNang hospital. </li></ul><ul><li>Our main aim was to make sure that the students were as well prepared as possible. </li></ul>
  10. 18. Projects completed for DaNang General Hospital <ul><li>Network diagram for the IT systems in the Hospital </li></ul><ul><li>A database implementation report for the mortality and morbidity statistics </li></ul><ul><li>The hospital intranet project </li></ul><ul><li>Work flow analysis report </li></ul><ul><li>Scoping of follow up projects </li></ul><ul><li>Hospital facilities audit database </li></ul><ul><li>Hospital Fact Sheet developed to assist with the communication of information about the Hospital to project groups </li></ul><ul><li>Development of Morbidity and Mortality Statistical Database for Pediatrics Department </li></ul><ul><li>Development of the following IT Policy documents </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Information Security Policy </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Information Management Policy </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Issue specific Security Policy </li></ul></ul>
  11. 19. Evaluation <ul><li>There were a combination of evaluation methods used in this project, these included: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Surveys of the participants </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Focus group interviews </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Feedback from the staff at DaNang General Hospital </li></ul></ul>
  12. 20. Lessons Learnt <ul><li>Logistical </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Travel dates </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Semesters/Trimesters </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Language barriers </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Technical terms </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Translations </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Cultural issues </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Hierarchical structure </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Information management skills are fully transferable into other the wider information environment. </li></ul>
  13. 21. Future Directions <ul><li>We are currently in talks with the Royal Children’s Hospital and DaNang General Hospital to extend this project. </li></ul><ul><li>Produce a alternative WIL simulation model for the University </li></ul><ul><li>Data collected will be further analysed in terms of </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Social Network Analysis </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Reflective analysis </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Focus group analysis </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ethnographic studies (both students and staff) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Gap analysis </li></ul></ul>
