Using motion capture technology, we tested a lifting intervention to determine its learnability. High risk movements increase the risk for musculoskeletal injury, and this intervention shows a direct reduction in these biomechanical risk factors. After a month, individuals remembered the techniques and risk for musculoskeletal injury was reduced.
Studies have found novice nurses are inadequately prepared to respond to deteriorating patients, due to limited clinical experience. The purpose of this multi-site randomized pre/post-test experimental design study was to compare student nurse competency, learning retention and perceived support after exposure to a deliberate practice debriefing model versus standardized debriefing.
