Abstract

ABSTRACT: One of the big gaps in all routine daily health care and social sector processes is poor com-munication. The goal of this study is to examine how to teach and enhance the use of the TETRA phone in communication. Educating a huge amount of students requires new teaching methods: Simulation-based learning provides one solution. This study answers the research questions: How does the TETRAsim® computer-based simulation program promote facilitation, training, and learning processes? How meaningful is simulation-based learning from the student’s perspective? The program was first analyzed by researchers, and a teaching experiment to test its use was organized in February 2013. Participants were 17 second-year nursing students. Data was collected using pre-, and post-questionnaires, interviews, video recordings, ob-servations, and field notes. Data is under the analysis process; it will be analyzed using the qualitative content analyses method, and the results will be presented in the conference proceedings and during the conference presentation.
