"It feels great. And nice for nurses to be rewarded at a major congress like this," says Elenita Forsberg, lecturer in the School of Social and Health Sciences and course leader on the specialist course for paediatric nurses.
"The students log in to a website and encounter various paediatric patient cases. The students have to examine, diagnose and propose treatment for various virtual patients. As the teacher, I can then follow the students' reasoning step by step," says Elenita Forsberg.
The prize-winning congress contribution is based on a study conducted last year by Elenita Forsberg under the supervision of Kristina Ziegert, senior lecturer in nursing at Halmstad University, and Uno Fors, professor at Karolinska Institutet. 64 distance students were examined in the WebSP system and everything was documented and evaluated.
"This also demonstrates that it is possible to use information technology in educational contexts right up to examination. The refinement here is that the students practise their ability to solve problems in a manner that is close to reality," says Kristina Ziegert.
