IT based educational system for dialysis staff : a user-centered exploratory study (English)
Abstract [en]

The dialysis ward at Karolinska University Hospital is a highly pressurized work environment filled with critical treatment situations where patient’s lives can be constantly in danger. Staff have to deal with a myriad of alarms and error codes in response to their patients varying ailments. The workforce at the dialysis ward lack controlled environment training, sufficient to address all of the potential treatment scenarios, with no risk of jeopardizing the patient’s condition.The purpose of this essay is to design and test the efficacy of using an IT based device for dialysis education at Karolinska University Hospital.The main topics this essay intends to address are:

• Identification of user scenarios and training fields.

• Prioritization of key training areas.

• Utilization of IT in effective staff training.

• Design of a conceptual prototype.

The process focuses on the user and their needs. Selected methods within training needs analysis and user centered system design have been conducted throughout the process. This includes user and task analysis to map the activity, followed by workshops and a close relationship between developer and end-users to create conceptual prototypes and user scenarios.The research concludes that there is a need for a training device able to simulate real dialysis treatments. It shows that training routines are more important than to train the actual physical handling of the dialysis machine. The preferred training device is a medium advanced simulator used via a computer screen.This report is written in Swedish.
