A visit to Nursing Science and their Clinical Centre2016-06-15
Part of Information Systems visited Nursing Science and their Clinical Centre.
On Wednesday the 8th of June, Malin Wik, John Sören Pettersson, Bridget Kane and Henrik Andersson visited Nursing Science and their Clinical Centre. Anders Sidenblad, Nursing teacher and doctoral student at IMH at Linköpings university, hosted a demonstration of their training mannequin.
The Clinical Centre trains students in clinical decision making using a realistic mannequin. The mannequin allows the students to perform certain clinical actions on it. It has simulated cardiac and respiratory functions, for example, and responses are made from a adjacent control room that is separated by a one-way mirror.
Observation is also possible from an adjacent classroom where several screens are mounted on the wall.
The Cinical Centre is very similar to the Information System's Usability laboratory, even though the applications are different. In the Usability Lab we use, among other methods, the "Wizard of Oz", where the Wizard is a test leader and controls the interaction of the test participant, with the user interface of a prototype computer system.
