On behalf of The Ohio State University and the University of Louisville School of Nursing, VNAA seeks volunteers to participate in a study that will develop a virtual simulation training system to train home healthcare professionals to recognize, assess and respond to hazardous conditions in patients' homes. The title of the study is "Home Healthcare Hazard Training Through Virtual Simulation."

Participation includes completing a questionnaire about their home healthcare experience and being involved in at least one focus group. Seven individuals will evaluate the virtual simulation being developed. Twenty-one individuals will complete the simulation, responding to a short questionnaire and a discussion about the simulation. Each phase will last about 2 hours.

Participants must be at least eighteen years old and have worked in home healthcare for at least a year as a home healthcare nurse, aide, physical therapist, occupational therapist, manager, educator or health and safety expert.

Participants will receive $50 for each phase of participation. 

If you are interested please send an email to: HomecareSafetyStudy@osumc.edu or phone 614-688-9555 or 502-852-3182.  

We hope you will consider being a part of this opportunity to promote safety in home healthcare, and we thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
