Effects of exam-room computing on clinician-patient communication: A longitudinal qualitative study.
Computers are becoming ubiquitous in patient exam rooms. This research investigated their influence on patient-clinician communication. Of particular interest is a discussion of how the spatial organization of the exam room can support patient-clinician communication. Best were arrangements in which patient and clinician were positioned basically shoulder to shoulder so each could simultaneously view the computer screen.
Does patient-centered design guarantee patient safety?: Using human factors engineering to find a balance between provider and patient needs
Journal of Patient Safety
According to the authors, “human factors engineering is the study of human beings and their interaction with products, environment, and equipment”, and that over the years it has evolved from systems- centered to user-centered to socially-centered care.
The effects of ambient music on simulated anaesthesia monitoring
We examined the effect of no music, classical music or rock music on simulated patient monitoring. Twenty-four non-anaesthetist participants with high or low levels of musical training were trained to monitor visual and auditory displays of patients' vital signs. In nine anaesthesia test scenarios, participants were asked every 50-70 s whether one of five vital signs was abnormal and the...
Effect of morning bright light treatment for rest-activity disruption in institutionalized patients with severe alzheimer's disease
Studies suggest that exposure to light of adequate intensity and duration at the proper time of day can be associated with a positive improvement in the quality and duration of sleep. Since institutional environments tend to have very low light levels, residents may not be exposed to enough bright light to entrain the circadian clock to the 24-hour day. In particular, bright light treatment has been shown to improve sleep–wake cycle disturbances in some Alzheimer’s disease (AD) subjects.
