Abstract in Undetermined

Caring for intensive care patients involves extensive use of

medical technology. When staff are educated in working

with these devices, the focus is on practical management.

The context in which they are used is however very

complex and the device cannot be seen as a separate

component. Knowledge about for example the patient’s

medical status and background must also be considered

when acting on a specific alarm. There is a gap between

Abstract in Undetermined

Caring for intensive care patients involves extensive use of

medical technology. When staff are educated in working

with these devices, the focus is on practical management.

The context in which they are used is however very

complex and the device cannot be seen as a separate

component. Knowledge about for example the patient’s

medical status and background must also be considered

when acting on a specific alarm. There is a gap between

learning how to handle the medical technology and learning

how to care for the patient that we believe could be bridged

by making advanced, educational aids available in the daily

practice. We present a prototype of an interactive computerbased

scenario simulation for learning to work with medical

technology in the patient care context. The paper describes

the user-centred design process and the prototype itself, and

concludes with a discussion about the motivation of using

this type of educational aid. (Less)
