Current difficulties in the assessment of practice of qualified nurses undertaking courses in critical care nursing are outlined and discussed. The evaluation and development of previously identified core competencies for intensive care nurses is discussed. The use of the National Health Service Knowledge and Skills Framework as a framework for the(More)
—Skills-based learning environments are used to promote the acquisition of practical skills as well as decision making, communication, and problem solving. It is important to provide feedback to the students from these sessions and observations of their actions may inform the assessment process and help researchers to better understand the learning process.(More)
This paper reports the processes and initial outcomes of a pilot study which investigated a week long 'virtual' children's ward experience for nursing students. Providing sufficient and meaningful experiences which enable students to quickly and effectively achieve competence in diverse areas of practice is often frustrated by the realities of available(More)
In this work a Smart-Watch application, that is able to monitor the frequency and depth of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and provide interactive corrective feedback is described. We have evaluated the system with a total of 41 subjects who had undertaken a single episode of CPR training several years previously. This training was part of a First Aid(More)
Semantic annotation has been used to combine varied information sources - gathered as unobtrusively as possible - and produce enhanced tools for working with digital resources. In this paper we describe trials carried out using a location tracking system and Semantic Web annotation technologies to analyse activities in a simulated ward environment. The(More)
This paper reports on a Virtual Interactive Practice (VIP) project that has the potential to revolutionise the educational delivery and learning of clinical skills complementing "real" practice. The focus is currently on nurse learning but the principles could equally be applied to multi and inter-professional learning and clinical decision-making. This(More)
This paper outlines a series of experiments looking at the annotation and subsequent analysis of skills-based learning and teaching in the domain of Nursing. The experiments used Semantic Web technologies to create and store annotations of the student's activities. A number of techniques were used to create these annotations ranging from manual textual(More)
Over the years, healthcare has been an important domain for CSCW research. One significant theme carried through this body of work concerns how hospital workers coordinate their work both spatially and temporally. Much has been made of the coordinative roles played by the natural rhythms present in hospital life, and by webs of mundane artefacts such as(More)
