Using a virtual learning environment (Second Life) to deliver simulation education Using a virtual learning environment (Second Life) to deliver simulation education Presentation Transcript

  • Dr. Jacqueline McCallum, Val Ness, Theresa Price, Andy Whiteford School of Nursing, Midwifery & Community Health July 2009 Using a virtual learning environment (Second Life) to deliver simulation education
  • The Results The team and avatars
    • Need to teach decision-making skills in nursing
    • Clinical simulation laboratory stretched to capacity
    • Glasgow Caledonian University bought an island on Second Life
    • Dedicated support team for Second Life
    Background
    • Research Questions
    • 1.To progress students beyond using Second Life for social networking and explore their experience of this learning environment.
    • 2. To explore the use of Second Life to develop Non-Technical skills in nursing such as decision-making.
    The Study
  • Caledonian University Saltire Centre created on Second Life university island
  • Inside the Saltire centre
    • The real CSL - add photo from my desktop at work
    The real clinical simulation laboratory
  • The virtual clinical simulation laboratory on Second Life
    • Action Research
    • Ethical approval gained from School ethics committee
    • Access granted from the Dean, programme leader and module leader
    • 350 students invited to participate
    • 12 Replied and were given information sheet
    • 6 consented to the study and attended training
    • 5 completed the study (1 withdrew)
    Methodology & Method
    • Qualitative Data analysis exploring decisions made
    • Written communication transcripts form the simulation
    • Qualitative one-to-one interviews after the simulation
    • Transcribed by one researcher
    • Analysed using Dieklemann finding themes
    Methodology & Method
    • Six patients
    • report given using SBAR
    • One hour working in the Second Life CSL
    • Assisted by a nurse avatar (researcher)
    • Patients controlled by 2 nurse lecturers remotely
    The Simulation
  • The patients
    • May
    • Colin
    • Willie
    • Laura
    • Anne
    • Precilla
  • The Simulation
    • Most proactive with Anne
    • Possible due to feeling competent at wound care
    • Least proactive with Colin, who has just returned from theatre
    The Results - text May Laura William Colin Precilla Anne Proactive 1 2 2 0 1 3 Reactive 4 3 3 5 4 2 Delegated 4 5 5 5 5 5
  • The Results - interview
    • Theme 1
    • Theme 2
    • More reactive than proactive with decisions – links to them stating they do not get experience on clinical placement
    • No analytical decision-making, didn’t use any charts, e.g. EWS, pre-op checklist
    • Delegated a great deal – had some experience of this on clinical placement
    • Recognised the sick patient, but no assessment conducted
    • Simulation on Second Life made them realise that they were doing decision-making
    • Ignored May most of the time – not seen as a priority patient
    The Discussion
    • get a good photo from second life for here.
