Teaching Pre-licensure Nursing Students to Communicate in SBAR in the Clinical Setting

Posted by on Apr 2, 2014 in Teaching Strategies |

Online Video Vignette http://onlinetraining.umassmed.edu/sbarcommunication/ This vignette was designed for both faculty and students to learn how to communicate using SBAR.  The vignette demonstrates to nursing faculty how to manage more than one student in clinical and how to direct each student to gather and then disseminate information in a clear, concise manner utilizing the SBAR format. The vignette demonstrates to nursing students how they can gather information in clinical and put patient information together to develop a clear and concise communication strategy to speak with other health care team members.   Strategy Activity: After the students and or faculty have viewed the vignette while in clinical the student needs to practice this skill.  At some point in the clinical day, the student will actually call the clinical faculty on the telephone.  The faculty will role play a health care provider either a nurse practitioner or physician.  The student will communicate in SBAR essential information to their faculty member/healthcare provider.   The faculty/physician will give the student an order or intervention for the student to transcribe.  At the conclusion of this role-play the faculty member and student will debrief and review the verbal encounter and transcription order.  This activity will help the student to learn how to communicate in SBAR and take a verbal physicians order. Patient Centered Care Students will identify patient concerns and abnormal findings and communicate in SBAR their assessment.  (Knowledge, Attitudes) Safety Students will discover how gather essential information and be confident when communicating their findings to the physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, and physicians assistants. (Knowledge, Attitudes) Teamwork/Communication Students will gather subjective and objective patient data, and will communicate using SBAR a concern or abnormal finding to the physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, and physicians assistants.  (Knowledge, Skills, Attitudes)...

Sex Trafficking and the Nursing Role: An Online Educational Module for Nurses

Posted by on Mar 6, 2014 in Teaching Strategies |

Sex trafficking is an issue that nurses in the United States need to be aware of in order to provide the best care to their clients.   It was estimated in 2005 by the U.S. Department of Justice that there were between 100,000 and 150,000 people living and working as sex slaves in the United States, and these numbers are only rising.  It is imperative that nurses know how to recognize signs of trafficking and know how to intervene in order to protect the health and safety of the clients that they work with. In order for nurses to confidently and successfully intervene when they find themselves in situations where trafficking is suspected, they must be educated.  I propose that utilizing the Sex Trafficking and the Nursing Role: An Online Educational Module for Nurses could be very beneficial in this endeavor.  Accessible at www.nursingstrafficking.web.unc.edu, the module was developed to be learner-focused to meet each individual’s stylistic learning needs, including: a lecture on the topic with resources provided to reflect evidence based practice guidelines, assessment of potential victims, and interventions related to sex trafficking in various formats; two case studies, both of which are adaptable for use as simulations, and pre- and post-tests reflecting module content. The intended use for the Sex Trafficking and the Nursing Role: An Online Educational Module for Nurses is for incorporation into the registered nurse curriculum, particularly as an addition to the public health nursing course.  Faculty would follow-up in a variety of ways, which they can tailor to the needs of their students.  Educators could use the module quizzes as an assessment of module understanding for a grade in their courses.  The case-studies could be distributed as an essay discussion assignment or could be used to assess understanding as part of a simulation or class discussion; participation and understanding may be evaluated as strictly as the educator sees fit, no rubric is included in the module for case-study grading purposes.    Furthermore, the module could be an efficacious teaching tool used as continuing education units for graduate students, nurses in practice, as well as other healthcare providers. The content included in the lecture portion of the module...
