The Health Science Education and Research Commons in the Edmonton Clinic Health Academy


The Health Science Education and Research Commons . . . will prepare the next generation of health workforce to provide team-based care. The Health Sciences Education and Research Commons (HSERC) works with all health professional programs at the University of Alberta to prepare professionals to deliver quality and safe care using team-based health science education, establish best practices in health science education and disseminate them widely, and make a meaningful contribution to the health of Alberta communities through optimized health team development. HSERC’s demonstration space was established in May 2008. By 2016: • students from 43 health programs at the UA (7,485 in 2009-10) will be team and technology competent • learning and research partnerships (currently 13 of 19 faculties, three post secondary institutions and AHS) will include all UA faculties and pan-Alberta advanced education sectors

2

• researchers engaged will quadruple to almost 200 • 15 clinicians will annually graduate proficient in health science education learning best practices from the newly created MEd Health Sciences Education program

AV/IT:

IP based PTZ cameras in kitchen/living area; ceiling mounted loudspeakers and mics; 40� LCD monitor and computer workstation in living area.

The condo provides student research opportunities to examine the use of applied universal design principals to design for an aging population. Students apply their knowledge of occupational performance, functional design and human factors (physical, cognitive and sensor) to design with a focus on wellness. The integration of intelligent technology, such as wireless sensors for remote monitoring can improve the quality of life of chronically ill patients and reduce hospital stays. This technology will be used to monitor health related events and transmit this to an online virtual environment. Condo will support the development of technology for remote monitoring and health care in rural Canada. In addition to home care/palliative care simulation, condo can be used as a focus group room for the study of parent child interactions, aging in place observation, microbiology safe food handling.

Immersive Lab

Space/Equipment

Potential Educational and Research Activities

Size: 125nsm

This space has the potential to feature immersive technology allowing for three dimensional digitization of seamless immersion into a virtual world.

Special Features: • 2 HD stereo high resolution projectors • back projected screen • position trackers • graphic computer with graphic processor

The space is designed to actively engage learners in immersive collaborative simulations. Immersive technology, uses multi-user virtual environments in which participants interact with digital objects and tools that support collaborative work. Haptic devices provide force feedback so participants learn the amount of force to apply when using the tools on the digital objects (e.g.: a scalpel during surgery). The participants share and navigate through computer generated 3D graphical space. Current use includes surgical procedural training. Immersive projection technology is increasingly used for distributed collaboration (collaborating across distances) with highly immersive and surrounding displays. Current specialized applications include, molecular visualization and architectural walk-throughs, however the increasing need for co-visualization of complex data and large-scale models will result in an increasing use of this type of technology
