How can emergency room associates continue to educate themselves in a fast manner and without bureaucratic hurdles? The A.L.I.N.A Project, which gives associates new tools with special assistance services and learning environments, delivers the solution. We spoke with Prof. Sabine Blaschke at the University Hospital Göttingen about these tools and how they work.
Prof. Blaschke, could you briefly outline the objective of this project and tell us about its current status?
Sabine Blaschke: The goal of the project is the implementation of assistance services for associates, who work in the preclinical emergency field and in hospitals, meaning paramedics and emergency responders. We want to support the work of these associates by introducing intelligent services, for instance, as it pertains to operating devices, medication administration, and first medical response measures. Along with our technology partners, we have written teaching and learning contents and installed them on tablets. These services can be accessed online so that the associates are supported in their work when they need information, for example, in the event of a device failure or in their search for information to perform emergency response measures on patients. We currently provide these services in two hospital prototypes for the staff at the University Hospital Göttingen and the University Hospital Halle as well as the affiliated emergency medical services. We will start the trial phase there and track it until the end of August to determine the acceptance and practicability of these types of assistance services in the field. ...
