HLTH 025 Patient Care Equipment Technology Syllabus 2013

John Tobey Clark tobey.clark@uvm.edu
Summary
This course is an introduction into patient care technology - the environment, a background review of the human body and technical principles, and a specific focus on medical devices commonly found at the bedside in intensive care units. .Learning Objectives 1. Provide a basic understanding of medical and technical concepts, patient care equipment and technology principles, application and proper operation, common problems and solutions, patient safety issues, maintenance, and management of the technology. Provide a methodology for improving the safety and cost-effectiveness of common medical devices through a program of healthcare technology management. Help students better communicate with other hospital staff involved with medical devices, administration, and equipment vendors. Develop the student's interest, and prepare them for further study and more advanced application of the principles.

2. 3. 4.

Methods
The course will utilize web-based content including text, photos, diagrams, flow charts, other figures, video, audio, links to other websites, interactive tools, and other web attributes to deliver content to students. The topics to be included for each medical technology covered in this course are:

     

Device principles, Proper clinical application, Patient safety, Common device/technique problems and resolution Care, maintenance, and quality assurance, and Technology management

Grading
Student Evaluation and Grading

Ten Quizzes - each 4 points (40 points total) There will be a quiz after completion of most modules. A pre-test at the beginning of the course will help prepare the student for quizzes. The time limit for each quiz is 30 minutes. The quizzes will be available for two days. Two exams - each 20 points (40 points total) A midterm exam will be given covering the first half of the course. A final exam will cover the second half of the course. The time limit for each exam is 150 minutes. The exams will be available only on the assigned date for the exam unless prearranged with the instructor. Eight discussion questions and responses - each 2.5 points (20 points total) Discussion questions relevant to the current topic will be presented. Responses to the posts by other students are encouraged along with a response from the original presenter. The highest grade for the assignment will only be achieved if the student makes an original post/answer to the discussion question, comments on another students post, and also responds to other students comments on his/her original post.

All graded quizzes and tests are "open book" - you are allowed to research questions using the Course Content modules. However, there is a time limit on quizzes and tests. They must be completed in the allotted time. Many Content Modules will have a reading assignment and a Discussion question on Day 1 and a Quiz or other assignment on Day 2.

Optional - Extra Credit Report

One written report - up to 5 points

An optional extra credit report on a topic of your choosing related to a medical device, technology, technology-related procedure or system can be completed with a maximum added five (5) points to your grade. The extra credit report is due on the last official class day. The report should be 10 pages of double spaced text. The report should be completed in MS Word or Adobe PDF. The sections of the report should include:

    

Title page with title, course title, student's name and date Table of contents (Main body of the paper) Conclusion Bibliography

Criteria for grading will be: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Organization Presentation Creativity and originality Quality and accuracy Technical versus clinical content (should have components of each) Format, grammar, spelling, etc
