Abstract: One of the challenges faced in nursing education is generating students’ interest for working with frail elderly. Based on low attendance numbers at training initiatives, nursing teachers seem to have little interest in geriatric care.
With the digital tool Geraware, we want teachers to discover the challenges of this nursing field and hereby increase awareness of their attitude with regard to geriatric care.
The tool guides the participant through the life of an older women, portrayed by herself and her (in)formal caregivers. By means of questions throughout the story, he is invited to reflect on the provided care, alternative solutions and to take position. Comments can be shared via built-in social media.
The user experience and the usability of the tool was positively evaluated by 28 nursing teachers. A re-evaluation is planned for early 2016.
Our aim is to present next year a final product that meets the objectives.
