BROWSE our complete collection of LearnScapes for Health Care Administration.

This collection of four LearnScapes (interactive video case studies) provides students with a realistic, immersive environment that reinforces lessons gathered from a collection of best-selling Jones & Bartlett Learning healthcare ethics textbooks. Through immersive technology and instructional design these LearnScapes create an environment in which the student takes on various roles within the Health Care System and are required to make important decisions based on scenarios that present ethical dilemmas.  The student will make decisions and see the impact of their participation in real time. The student will benefit from LearnScape features including: photorealistic virtual locations, video interactions, interactive documentation, checkpoint diagnostics, remediation, and natural assessment.

Each LearnScape will have a natural assessment mapped to the specific learning outcomes from the courseware. This assessment will be integrated naturally into the flow of the LearnScape storyline. All student responses and submissions will be stored and compiled into a single Microsoft Word file. The file may be downloaded to the student’s desktop, allowing the student to submit to the instructor for grading.

Story Line:
Through four different scenarios, the student will play different roles within the Health Care System and be presented with ethical dilemmas and various opposing viewpoints. In some cases, the “right” decision may be subjective. Therefore, the student must use ethical decision making skills to defend their decision. To support this general storyline, these LearnScapes will create an immersive world with photorealistic health care settings, and supporting characters with whom the student will interact. The student will need to gain information from these characters, along with other resources, to analyze information and make critical decisions about these ethical dilemmas.

LearnScape 1: Equipment Purchase
In this LearnScape, the student is the CFO of small rural women’s health center within Bright Road Health Care System. The physicians in the center have approached the student to purchase a mammography 3D machine, at a cost of $500,000. The student will have to use newly learned ethical decision making skills to consider finance, authority of Board of Directors, public relations/marketing, wishes of medical staff, needs of the community, and future implications when making a decision as to whether or not to bring in the new technology.

LearnScape 2: Stockpiling
In this Learnscape, as the purchase/procurement manager of a large hospital within the Bright Road Health Care System, the student will have to make a critical decision with regards to a particular cancer treatment drug that was recently taken off the market.  The student will use the information gathered to consider the good of the individual vs. good of community, PR, humanitarian aspects, future cost of medicines, future availability of the medicine, and potential of the hospital needing the medicine in near future.

LearnScape 3: Labor and Delivery Services
In this Learnscape, the student is the manager of the Social Services Department. As part of the ethics committee for a rural 18-bed hospital, the CEO and CFO ask the student to contribute to an initial discussion on the decision to continue having labor and delivery in the hospital.  The student knows that historically in this community, women seek late prenatal care. In discussions with the committee, the student learns that the Ob/Gyn has no back-up specialty coverage, that the family practitioner really does not want to do obstetric services (late nights, insurance…), and that the community loves the service . Based on this information, the student must make a recommendation whether to continue labor and delivery services at the hospital.

LearnScape 4: Confidentiality
In this Learnscape, the student is the head of Information Technology (IT) Services. When test results for  an upstanding member of the community come back as positive for Syphilis, the student is presented with some ethical decision making challenges based on laws requiring that the results to be reported to the state Public Health department, versus the ethics of patient/physician confidentiality.
