Three examples of nurse-patient interaction research

Posted by Annelies Verkerk on Mar 21, 2017

Behavioral observation has become a fundamental component of medical practice and a primary source of clinical research data. The use of video technology in nurse-patient interaction research offers important advantages to scientists in unraveling complex behavior patterns and finding relationships between behaviors, nutrition, effectiveness of interventions, and more.

Effectiveness of video feedback in education

Posted by Annelies Verkerk on Mar 1, 2017

Did you know that…

1. Did you know that…Many students experience stress when they have to participate in video feedback sessions, and some are even reluctant to participate? 

  • Two Norwegian researchers, Nilsen and Baerheim, found that some students experienced emotional distress before the start of the course. Their study shows the importance of reassurance and support in the process, and demonstrates the importance of carefully considering the design and execution of such educational programs.

Does the sex of a simulated patient affect CPR?

Posted by Annelies Verkerk on Apr 20, 2015

It shouldn’t, but it does.

Although men and women are equally at risk for sudden cardiac arrest, studies have found that women are less likely to be resuscitated – by both bystanders and medically-trained personnel. Chelsea Kramer and her colleagues discovered that in the experiment they set up, when faced with either a male or female patient simulator, both men and women rescuers appeared reluctant to remove a female patient simulator’s clothing, with men being significantly more hesitant to do so. However, the hand placement for CPR on the female was more ideal compared to on the male simulated patient.
