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 law textbooks. Through immersive technology and instructional design these LearnScapes create an environment in which the student takes on the role of a new healthcare administrator within the Bright Road Health Care System. The student will analyze information, 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:
The general storyline includes four different scenarios in which the learner, a Health Care Administrator new to Bright Road Health Care System, will be required to review legal cases and use the concepts of health care law to determine the Health Care System’s legal risks and liabilities. To support this general storyline, these Learnscapes will create an immersive world with photo-realistic 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 legal cases.  Bright Road’s General Counsel will act as the student’s mentor, helping them navigate difficult legal concepts.

Learnscape 1: Hospital Nightmare
In this Learnscape, the student is presented with the case of a patient who needlessly develops a staph infection, following an unrelated surgery. Though the patient survives, the infection leaves her with permanent lung damage, and the hospital is later sued with negligence. The student will need to gather information about the incident from the parties involved, and work with the Health Care System’s General Counsel to determine the Hospital’s liability.

Learnscape 2: Medication Errors
When eight week-old infant dies after being overdosed by an antibiotic that had been incorrectly prepared in the hospital's pharmacy, the student in the role of the new health care administrator, must interview staff members and work with the General Counsel to analyze the four elements of negligence in order to determine the hospital’s liability.

Learnscape 3: The Wrong Body Part
In this Learnscape, the student will examine a negligence case, stemming from an incident in the hospital operating room, in which a patient has the wrong limb removed. The student will analyze this case from the standpoint of the legal concept Res Ipsa Loquitur, and work with General Counsel to determine the hospital’s liability.

Learnscape 4: Failure to Obtain Consent
In this Learnscape, the student will be presented with a negligence case in which the patient receives conflicting advice regarding the treatment for a blocked artery;  the patient’s wishes regarding insertion of a catheter and stent are disregarded on his consent form.
