The Challenge of Designing Interactive Scenarios to Train Nurses on Rostering Problems in a Virtual Clinical Unit
The healthcare institutions in leading countries have undergone numerous changes to control their charges. These transformations generate an incredible impact on the work organization specially for caregiving staff. As a consequence, trainers in Nursing Schools need innovative tools to improve their courses. At the same time, there has been an increasing interest for immersive training environments which could represent with great fidelity a professional context. In this article, we present the method we set up to design educational interactive scenarios that take place in a socio-technical dynamic and complex system such as a clinical department. These scenarios aim to train nurses to plan their activity, deliver and organize cares for some fifteen inpatients. Using this method, we build a dozen of interactive non-linear scenarios. These scenario allow the trainee to freely act and make decision which could cause delay or equally bad and even far worse inadequate caregiving.
