Title : A study method using “The Patient Profile Form” to introduce persona patients for nursing education
Introduction: Paper patients have been used for learning in the nursing process. However, nursing students have no experience in nursing practice. Therefore, it is difficult to learn information about a patient while imagining characters and images. Many of these are learned based on cases given by teachers. As a solution method, introduction of simulated patients, OSCE (Objective Structured Clinical Examination), and utilization of simulators are being conducted. Nursing process learning tools in e-learning have also been developed, but these are learning based on given examples. Therefore, with reference to the Persona/Scenario method used by web design, we conducted a learning method using “The Patient Profile Form” for patient understanding. A nursing student conducted a learning method to consider the aid plan of the case considered by the nursing student himself.
Method: The research collaborators were five nursing college fourth graders. Create a persona patient using the patient case preparation tool. And give it a name. “The Patient Profile Form" is composed of patient introduction (age, sex, occupation, life, family / key person, human relations, income, hobby, personality, etc.), diseases and symptoms, what the patient needs, these patient profile sheets Contents are summarized. Then introduce the patient using “The Patient Profile Form”.
Result: The learning method using “The Patient Profile Form” said that five nursing students would think that they could have interests and interests in patients.
Audience Take Away:
- Patient Cases Creation learning by nursing students is different from conventional nursing learning method. By thinking by the student himself, it is a new learning design that is interested in patients and helps to imagine patient images.
- By using the patient case creation tool, it is possible to create a patient image smoothly and to easily correct it.
- It can also be used for examination at the time of creation of a patient on paper by the teacher.
