"Can you see/touch me?" Preliminary Development of Nursing Students' awareness training of Deaf Japanese Patients' needs
Efforts to make the healthcare environment responsive to patients’ needs, preferences and values help increase the quality of nursing care, which improves patient satisfaction and long-term health outcomes. The proposed study will develop an online-based training module using patient simulation scenarios based on the actual experiences of Deaf patients. The ultimate objective is to improve nursing students’ perceptions and attitudes as well as knowledge to ensure Patient-Centered Care (PCC) for patients who are Deaf.
