Ethical Dilemmas & Errors

Awarding Agency: McGovern Center for Humanities and Ethics, Program in Interprofessional Ethics (PIE), UTHealth

PI: Yang Gong

Duration: 1/1/13 – 5/31/13

Project Description:  The purpose of this proposed project is to investigate the ethical dilemma between physicians who lead practice and nurses who usually report incidents in practice through a user-centered survey. This survey will describe the dilemma and propose technical solutions to facilitate medical incident reporting through a trustful e-reporting and e-learning environment. The survey results will serve as a foundation for an intelligent reporting system that can mitigate the system difficulty and inefficiency regarding ease of use, ease of understanding and their relations with the level of details in reporting.
