MbyRes wedi’i gyllido yw hwn, sy’n cynnwys cyflog hael a ffioedd dysgu, gydag amgylchiadau sydd â digon o adnoddau ar gyfer ysgoloriaeth lwyddiannus. This is a funded MbyRes, including a generous stipend and tuition fees, with well-resourced circumstances for a successful scholarship.

 

Here is an exciting opportunity to study the impact of a new and novel technology currently being developed in Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board (CTMUHB).

The selected candidate will apply their research skills and ambition to the help evaluate and develop a bespoke IT ‘e-whiteboard’ application that draws together patient information from hospital systems. This opportunity will allow the student to develop transferable knowledge and skills in this most exciting and active field of transformative-technology research in the field of patient care.

This Knowledge Economy Skills Scholarship (KESS) project will be held in the Faculty Life Sciences and Education at the University of South Wales. KESS is a programme funded by the European Social Fund (ESF) awarded by the Welsh European Funding Office (WEFO) in the Welsh Government.

The MbyRes will be undertaken in partnership with CTMUHB. This study has the potential for changing the way clinical data is presented, used and stored that promotes improved communication, patient management, increasing value and healthcare outcomes.  The e-whiteboards are already being used widely across CTMUHB and there is the potential to influence the scalability of this approach across the NHS.

 

Programme of research:

Whiteboards are a common feature experienced by anyone working on and around hospital wards. Traditionally they contain hand written information for patients on the ward often at or near the ward clerk desk. Following the collaboration of CYMUHB staff into a “Multi-disciplinary Quality Improvement Team” there were a number of issues identified with this practice, including; legibility (handwritten, pens designed to be erased); accuracy (transcribed from paper and electronic data systems); relevance (they required being written/erased as patents enter or leave) and; access (they can only be viewed by standing in physically by standing in front). The team worked together to produce an ambitious, effective and efficient solution for these issues and the work on developing an e-whiteboard began.

 

 

Staff using a ward based e-whiteboard

CTMUHB has now successfully completed the first phase of this innovative project to develop a bespoke IT application (an e-whiteboard) that draws together patient information from hospital systems, presenting this on a LCD screen in place of the traditional whiteboards.

The prospective student will facilitate research on the benefits this system has had to its users and as such, the patients they treat. It is expected that the student will increase our understanding of how the system operates to improve patient outcomes.

It is anticipated that the proposed research will take a qualitative approach focusing in the experiences of UHB staff that use the e-whiteboards in their day-to-day practice. To date, the e-whiteboards project has concentrated in developing the physical system with limited investigation of both staff and patient experience and this will be a rich area for further research and to help the UHB understand how the system can be best utilised.
