Male Urinary Catheterisation Simulation - An Introduction
The use of Simulation is supported in both the strategic and academic approach of HEEM. There is evidence to show that it can supplement and support clincial skills learning. (Hansen et al 2011, Todsen et al 2013)
This module aims to look specifically at techniques for Male Urinary Catheterisation. The entire process including including preparation and equipment checks is included in some of the videos. There are further links to modules that give a detailed study of urinary catheterisation.
Observation that suggested this module.
A colleague who works in Clinical Skills Education observed that there was some variation internationally, nationally and regionally in the approach to catheterisation. This module aims to present a number of sources to the viewer. They may then reflect on this variation as they observe.
Study which suggested this Module.
Auckland Medical School study of Catheterisation videos for ipad mobile learning. Study of medical students showing some evidence of confidence and skill development when able to access catheter videos compared to a control group who did not.
