Motivating medical equipment e-learning
Nurses are obligated, partly by law and partly by the medical institutions, to make examination to maintain their accreditation to confirm they are qualified and competent to use medical devices. The aim of this project is to develop a generic game-based addition to the medical equipment e-learning to increases the motivation of the nurse for this type of learning.
‘My experience’ is an e-learning module that focuses on sharing personal experiences from daily practice. The learner chooses a medical device and share an experience about a situation that could have had serious consequences, but was somehow intervened by him and/or a colleague. The chosen device should play a role in the situation. Sharing the experience can be done using six multiple-choice questions and six open questions. During answering the questions visualization of the given answers is shown. After sharing the personal experience the learner is provided with two experiences of colleagues about the same device. An overview of these experiences is given, and after reading them the learner has to indicate to which extent this situation is happened or could happen to him too. Up next, the learner can send an automated message to the writer to inform him about the fact his experience is read.
