Developing and using a web-based video to promote student and tutor awareness of the risks and consequences of healthcare-associated infection

Abstract:

Healthcare-associated infection is a major concern to health professionals, the public and to policy makers in the United Kingdom. The aim of this project is to develop a web-based video (WBV) which will demonstrate the consequences of acquiring healthcare-associated infection (HAI) for patients and their families. Patients will be interviewed in depth and the WBV will be further developed and edited in conjunction with patient group representatives. The WBV will be shown to representative medical, nursing and midwifery tutors to explore how it may best be incorporated into the curriculum, capturing their reactions via focus group. Once the tutors have agreed a strategy for using the WBV, it will be used with students. They will be asked to evaluate it in terms of its influence on their clinical practice and the way they communicate with patients at risk of/have developed HAI. All students shown the WBV (circa 300) will complete a questionnaire. A representative subsample (circa 20) will be interviewed to generate qualitative information. The results will be shared with the patient groups. We will update the CETL website to direct students and tutors to additional learning resources.
