Evaluating The Impact Of Simulated Patients On Knowledge, Skills And Attitudes Of Laypeople Following A Basic First Aid Course: Protocol For A Cluster-Randomized Controlled Trial, Bert Avau, Anne-Catherine Vanhove, Marianne Vandenlindenloof, Liselotte Suls, Hans Verstraeten, Philippe Vandekerckhove, Emmy De Buck

International Journal of First Aid Education

Background: Teaching first aid to laypeople is a cost-effective way to improve public health. However, it is currently unclear what the most effective ways are to teaching first aid. It has already been shown that simulated patients have an added value in teaching emergency care to healthcare professionals. This paper describes the protocol for a cluster-randomized controlled trial that will investigate the influence of using a simulated patient during basic first aid training for laypeople on their knowledge, skills and self-efficacy.

Hypothesis: The null hypothesis of this research is that the use of simulated patients during basic first aid training ...

Insights From A Pilot Study Of Naloxone Education, Tracey A. Taylor, Lucy Ellis, Penny Newell, Emily Oliver

International Journal of First Aid Education

Background and Aims: We wanted to test whether introducing an additional Naloxone component into overdose education would affect the willingness and confidence of a potential overdose witness to intervene effectively. A further aim was to test the potential of education to reduce barriers to administering Naloxone and barriers to calling 999 (UK Emergency services).

Methods: We used quantitative methods to gather and analyze data from both control (overdose education, n=15) and experimental (overdose and Naloxone education, n=57) participants, facilitated by educators in the North West of England and London, for opioid users (n=5), former users (n=19 ...

First Aid Intervention In The Adult Population: Yorkshire Health Study And Its Implications For First Aid Education, Eleanor Holding, Clare Relton, Katharine Roberts, Emily Oliver

International Journal of First Aid Education

Background: First aid can reduce death, injury and suffering, but little is known about the characteristics of those who actually give and receive it. The aim of this study was to conduct a first aid behavior survey of a large adult population in the United Kingdom.

Methods: A survey (web and postal) of adults was conducted between 2013 and 2015 as part of the Yorkshire Health Study. Two questions were asked about their first aid behavior: whether participants had administered first aid and if yes, their relationship to the first aid recipient.

Results: Of the 13,584 adults who responded ...


Effectiveness Of Four-Decontamination Techniques On Bacterial Growth On Cpr Manikins After Use In A Cpr Course, Rachel K. Katch, David C. Berry Aug 2017

Effectiveness Of Four-Decontamination Techniques On Bacterial Growth On Cpr Manikins After Use In A Cpr Course, Rachel K. Katch, David C. Berry

International Journal of First Aid Education

Context: The American Red Cross and American Heart Association are strong advocates of preventing disease transmission during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) training by promoting careful and consistent manikin decontamination. Because CPR is taught worldwide, identifying low-cost, efficient, and effective means of decontamination is imperative. Objective: Determine the degree of contamination on CPR manikins after routine use, and evaluate the efficacy of four disinfecting methods to reduce bacterial growth. Design: Descriptive laboratory. Setting: CPR class; microbiology laboratory. Subjects Forty-eight Actar 911™ CPR manikins (Armstrong Medical Industries, Lincolnshire, IL). Main Outcome Measure(s): Dependent variable was bacterial colony growth (count); independent variable was ...

Implementing An Undergraduate, Team-Based, First Aid Education Course, Valerie O'Toole-Baker, Carol A. Amann, Stephanie N. Mcelhaney, Michael Mccarthy, Jestin N. Carlson

International Journal of First Aid Education

Abstract

First aid (FA) skills, including Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) are the foundation of first responder care. Best practice guidelines to educate FA trainees are lacking. The current structure of FA training programs is based on pedagogy, derived indirectly from hospital-based and Emergency Medical Services training models. Most FA training programs focus on educating the participant to function as the sole provider of care; however there may be instances when individuals providing FA find themselves suddenly engaged as functioning members of teams caring for an individual in need. Findings indicate that patients are safer and receive higher quality care when providers ...

Student Assessment In The Ohio Teacher Evaluation System (Otes): Is It Improving Instructional Practices In The Music Classroom?, Rachael Fleischaker

Excellence in Performing Arts Research

This study investigated the impact of student growth measures required by the Ohio Teacher Evaluation System (OTES) on instructional practices of music teachers. The participants were music teachers employed in public school settings from seven counties in northeast Ohio. The participants specialized in a variety of content areas (instrumental, vocal, and general) with students ranging in age from kindergarten through high school. Participants taught in diverse geographic, ethnic, and economic situations. Data was collected via an online survey. The music teachers answered questions about their demographics, current situations, professional involvement in the development of student learning objectives for their school ...
