Thesis/Dissertation Title:

What Difference Does a Form Make: Redesign and Evaluation of a Form for Documenting In-Hospital Cardiac Arrest

The real-time documentation of medications and procedures is an essential part of managing patient care during in-hospital "code blue" cardiac arrest emergencies. Care providers have voiced dissatisfaction with the existing code blue documentation form. To address this problem, a mixed-methods needs assessment was used to describe the problems of usability and completeness. Based on the results, the documentation form was redesigned and then assessed through an evaluation study.
