Virtual simulation training system to help home health workers respond to risks


As the population ages, the need for professional caregivers to provide in-home services for ill and disabled patients is increasing. As a workplace, patient homes may present more challenges than other healthcare settings because they can harbor hazards such as tobacco smoke, cluttered hallways and rooms, inaccessible bathrooms, rodents, bugs and more. Thanks to a three-year, $870,000 grant from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, a part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, University of Louisville School of Nursing Shirley B. Powers Endowed Chair in Nursing, Barbara Polivka, Ph.D., RN, and researchers from The Ohio State University will develop and test a virtual simulation training system to help home health workers recognize, assess and respond to risks. more
