ArticleWorking in syndicate groupstowards the development of clinical care protocols: a study into the professional learning of undergraduate nursing students

AbstractGroup work is an important element in nurse education and practice, and is an issue of consistent relevance given the increasing emphasis on collaborative and multidisciplinary working, and the fact that most nurses' work involves them in a variety of groups.This study is ongoing research, and considers the experiences of five groups, each comprising four final year nursing undergraduate students working in syndicate groups. The students are working towards the creation and development of clinical care protocols.The study method is grounded theory. Data have been collected over 3 academic years, with thegroup facilitator as researcher. The data management involves tape recording meetings and transcribing these, with continual reduction and analysis of the data. Findings from early analysis suggest that important phenomena, for example ‘resistance’, ‘tangible action goals’, and the concept of ‘closure’, play a key part in the way in which the groups under study have functioned.

NetworkComputer assisted learning: the potential for teaching and assessing in nursing

AbstractThis article discusses computer assisted learning (CAL) and the importance of applying it in nurse education. The articles recognizes the general technological developments as exemplified by the Teaching and Learning Technology Programme (TLTP) from which ideas about application and benefits came. The ideas from TLTP are hereby used in CAL and applied to nursing and health-care undergraduate programmes in one university. In the light of this experience the main intention of this article is to consider the benefits and costs of introducing computer programmes as part of the teaching provision for nurses and other health-care professionals both at beginner and advanced level. The article further argues that CAL can also be used for patient teaching thus providing transferable skills and benefits for teachers as well as learners, be they students or patients. To support such multiple uses of CAL selected examples will be offered and appropriate conclusions will be drawn.
