Pediatrics Digital Clinical Experiences, 1st Edition
Shadow Health’s Digital Clinical Experiences™ for Pediatrics provide students with a safe, convenient, and dynamic environment to practice their documentation, communication, and clinical reasoning skills. An innovative conversation engine enables students to become more efficient in their patient/caregiver interactions while maintaining high-quality therapeutic communication and care planning. These meaningful interactions with pediatric patients, ranging in age from 3 months to 15 years, and their caregivers help students gain valuable experience in practical application, patient/caregiver communication, and personal empathy, empowering them to improve patient outcomes and prepare to enter clinical practice.
- Digital Standardized Patients™ vary in age, race, socioeconomic status, gender identity, and sexual orientation, and have health histories and diseases/disorders that support students’ mastery of nursing principles in a wide spectrum of medical situations. Pediatric patients are accompanied by their guardians or caregivers, allowing students to gather meaningful data for their care.
- Natural language conversation engine allows students to engage in open-ended conversations with simulated patients and caregivers to gather subjective data and practice patient-centered communication.
- Student Performance Index provides instructors and students with immediate, detailed feedback on six key components of clinical reasoning — subjective data collection, objective data collection, therapeutic communication, documentation, information processing, and self-reflection — to identify areas of strength and opportunities for remediation.
- Interview and Assessment activities allow students to demonstrate their clinical reasoning abilities by performing a health assessment on virtual patients to collect objective data and report their findings in the electronic health record.
- Care Plan exercises enable students to use assessment data to work through the steps of the ADPIE process and select appropriate care actions from a standard set of components.
- SBAR activities in many assignments give students the opportunity to practice interprofessional communication with their Preceptor, a physician, or other health care professionals appropriate to the simulation.
- Prioritization activities ask students to select the care plan item that will result in the most improvement in their patient’s overall health.
- Interprofessional Communication opportunities throughout the simulations, such as the SBAR and reporting of suspected abuse, enable students to practice communicating with other members of the healthcare team.
