The Challenge of Designing Interactive Scenarios to Train Nurses on Rostering Problems in a Virtual Clinical Unit

Abstract : The healthcare institutions in leading countries have undergone numerous changes to control their charges. This transformation generates an incredible impact on the organization of work specially for caregiving staff. At the same time, there has been an increasing interest for healthcare training in immersive training environments which could represent with great fidelity a professional context. Designing such a virtual environment allows to experiment real-life like complex situations without any risk for the inpatients. This research aims to create a digital and entirely controlled training clinical unit where future nurses could improve their task organization skills, situation awareness, decision-making and leadership. In this article, we present a method to design educational interactive scenarios to train them to plan their activity , deliver and organize the care for some fifteen inpatients. Then we build a dozen of scenario using this method. The trainee can freely act and make decision which could cause delay or equally bad and even far worse inadequate caregiving. Well-known in operation research as the nurse rostering problem, the trainee can experiments such realistic regular situations as well as non regular unexpected ones where irregularities or hazards occur and force them to revise their revise their projected schedule to the moving context.
