We developed a laboratory incident report classification system that can guide reduction of actual and potential adverse events. The system was applied retrospectively to 129 incident reports occurring during a 16-month period. Incidents were classified by type of adverse event (actual or potential), specific and potential patient impact, nature of(More)
This study explores the feasibility of using computer tutorials to train laboratory personnel in Nepal. Training incorporated three software programs that teach microscope-based laboratory tests (peripheral blood smears, urinalysis, Gram stains). Forty-seven participants attended training sessions and completed a questionnaire. The participants' overall(More)
Previous research has shown that when confronted with failure, individuals with a fixed view of intelligence (entity theorists) perform worse on subsequent tasks than those with a malleable view of intelligence (incremental theorists).

This paper investigates one type of electronic word-of-mouth (eWOM), the online consumer review. The study considers two components of review structure: the type and the number of reviews. Using the cognitive fit theory, we show that the type of reviews can be a key moderating variable to explain the inconsistent relationship between consumer expertise and(More)
In order to update the design of the next generation of the Digital Anatomist, we have surveyed teaching assistants who have used the Digital Anatomist for learning and teaching anatomy as medical students, and have also examined available anatomy web sites with sufficient content to support learning. The majority of web sites function in an atlas mode and(More)
