Karen Breitkreuz – Nursing Workplace Resilience

Perceived Risk

This research project examines how medical error influences care providers, and how to improve resilience to errors in care. Simulations were used to mimic error experience, hoping to produce longer lasting changes in attitude and error mitigation strategies. It is hoped that educational approaches and simulated error exposure will provide a significant change in attitudes and ultimately decrease rates of medical error. She is currently working on educational research surrounding Cultural Intelligence and use of Virtual Reality in Nursing Education.
