About this research
History. This site started as my PhD research blog.
Ph.D. research is kind of a big thing. Right? 200-300 pages of carefully crafted analysis, discovering something new, some kind of new useful knowledge benefiting our society. Therefore, it is research, but it is also a vision; a vision of how that new knowledge can help our society. It is a vision, but it is also a social project, because to make the vision happen, you need a community: a village that will use and enhance that knowledge.
This site is about that: Ph.D. research, and ambition to make that vision a social project. It is about how perioperative teams can learn and work better together and how technology can enhance that collaboration.
Therefore, the question is will you join the community; will you help this project?
The purpose of the study is to examine how quality improvement education (QIE) and interprofessional learning are perceived by U.S. perioperative clinicians and CPD providers, and how from that perspective they relate with perioperative teamwork.
Understanding how professions involved in the perioperative team perceive QIE and interprofessional, team-based learning will help us better navigate the evolving healthcare environment, improve performance of teams, and ultimately improve healthcare outcomes. Therefore, all professions participating in perioperative teams can benefit from this study.
The research is done with the Centre for Technology Enhanced Learning in the Department of Educational Research at Lancaster University.
The ethics for this study were approved by Lancaster University Research Ethics Committee.
