Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Research Nursing


[music] My name is Angela Harrinanan and I teach in
the Bachelors of Science and Nursing program and I’ve been teaching since 2013. Our research
question was actually divided into three components: we wanted to know will pain simulation improve
students’ knowledge in pain assessment, and also will it improve students’ understanding
in pain management? We also wanted to know the students’ perspective in actually experiencing
pain simulation. My name is Jimmy Chen. I’m currently teaching with the BScN program within the School of Community and Health Studies. I’m full-time faculty since 2012. We were
utilizing a mixed methodology in our research project. We were able to recruit 159 BScN
Year 2 students in our research studies. We have conducted pre- and post-simulation surveys
and also we’re able to recruit 10 students to do the focus groups. We have a couple of
interesting research findings from this project. One thing is that students realized that it is critically important they need to make sure [they do] the complete assessment
of pain and also they need to look at it from a patient and family perspective. Students
also expressed that they want more simulation experience. We are attempting to incorporate
different practice settings. The other thing students are also looking for is they need
to study more in detail about the pain medications so they can choose different medications in
terms of pain management. The research has impacted my practice in recognizing that students really value simulation in pain management. Centennial actually provided us funding with
our research study and they provided webinars and lunch and learns. We have shared our research
in disseminating the information to the conferences offered here at Centennial College, including
Centennial Learns, Centennial Rises, Lunch and Learns. Jimmy went to SIM-one and he presented
our research findings and I’m going to the Netherlands to present the findings. [music]
