Abstract Content: Developing student awareness: The systematic reporting of clinical errors Danish academic regulations emphasize a dynamic theory- practice relation in the nursing education. The nursing program is based upon the close collaboration and development of the scholastic and clinical spheres. Attempts to
improve patient safety emphasize the critical role that the systematic reporting of clinical errors can play. This is not only a national but also an international priority as millions of patients worldwide suffer injury or death due to unsafe care.
A project in co-operation with clinical practice and University College Sealand’s research and development department attempts to optimize the theory-practice connection while developing students’ competencies with respect to the reporting
of clinical errors. Quantitative data from the involved students and clinical advisors is collected in order to measure the effect of the intervention. Student knowledge, awareness and experiences are tested both before and after the theoretical presentation. In the following module clinical, reflective sessions further promote this focus. 1 year later data will again be collected in order to measure the lasting effects of the theoretical and clinical collaboration. This data will be analyzed and form the basis for further innovative teaching developments promoting the theory-clinical connection in the learning environment.
