Virtual Ward

Workshop on crating a virtual ward led by Nigel Wynne, Emma Winterman, and Janine Stephenson staff from University of Central England, Faculty of Health

The project was set up as part of their Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) exploring collaboration with NHS trusts.

The resource is at: http://www.virtualward.hcc.uce.ac.uk:8080/virtualWardApp Although a username and password is required. You can use
Login ID: ALTC2006
Password: : Working in Partnership
Then select Course: Pre-Reg Nursing Acute Adult GM50C7
These should work for the next 2 weeks or so.
If you would like to use it after that or need more information or would be a potential partner then please contact Nigel Wynne < Nigel.wynne@uce.ac.uk > for further information.

After an introduction to the process and software, participants were encouraged explore the patient examples which had been created. Following questions further exploration of how this was used within the course and modules.

Discussion considered the linear nature of the workbook which accompanies the software & the potential for expansion. Questions about making it accessible for disabled students identified further work to be done. General issues about paper v electronic resources, submission, student feedback etc etc & how things fit with course design arose from the workshop, which were not specific to this software but showed common issues.

Future developments include more cases and improved interprofessional learning – possibly with the use of video conferencing.
