If you are chosen to participate, you will need to come to the study site on the UIC campus one time for approximately 1-3 hours.<br /><br />• You will be asked to simulate patient care activities in the laboratory using simulated bodily fluids with fluorescent tracer. These activities will not involve actual patients, real bodily fluids, viruses or bacteria.<br />• While performing the simulated activities, you may be asked to use personal protective equipment (gloves, gowns, respirators, etc.) and to wear sampling devices that measure the amount of simulated bodily fluid and fluorescent material in the simulate bodily fluid in the air and on surfaces.<br />• You may be asked to repeat the simulated healthcare delivery activity multiple times during one visit if the duration of the activity is short. <br />• The simulated patient care activities will be video-recorded and “black light” will be used for short periods of time to illuminate the fluorescent material.<br /><br />This research has been approved by the UIC Office for the Protection of Research Subjects.<br />Upon completion of participation, participants will receive compensation for their time. <br /><br />You are eligible to participate if you:<br />• Are 18 years of age or older<br />• Are fluent in English<br />• Have experience with one or more specific healthcare activities as a result of your work experience, education or training. The healthcare activities include: 1) bathing of soiled patients, 2) taking vitals, 3) performing a physical exam, 4) nasopharyngeal swabbing, 5) bronchoscopy, 6) positive-pressure ventilation, 7) intubation, <br />8) endobronchial suctioning, 9) hemodialysis and other activities associated with venous access, <br />10) resuscitation activities, 11) room cleaning activities, 12) bed making, and 13) use of personal protective equipment.<br /><br /><br />For more information reply to: Rachael Jones, PhD, Principal Investigator, at 312-996-1960 or epicenter@uic.edu <br /> massmail http://www.uic.edu/uic MassmailFeed Mon, 09 May 2016 15:16:04 -0500 Mon, 09 May 2016 15:16:04 -0500
