CLINICAL REASONING PROJECT

Cross-sectional survey

This stage of the project explored the range and types of simulation and ICT currently used in clinical laboratories within Australian Universities and the pedagogical approaches that underpin their use. The web based survey also investigated how the educational outcomes of simulation and ICT are assessed and the extent to which these technologies are used for formative and/or summative assessment of students' performance. Representatives from each Australian nursing school (accessed via the peak nursing bodies), The Council of Deans of Nursing and Midwifery and the National Network of Clinical Coordinators were invited to participate in the survey.
