Abstract

The hazard and near-miss reporting system was designed to promote patient safety mindfulness as part of a patient safety curriculum for advanced practice nursing students. We are extending the functionality of the system beyond reporting to just-in-time learning by providing context-specific links to internal and external information resources related to the type of hazard or near-miss reported. As part of this process, 55 advanced practice nursing students compared two different interfaces on ease of use and reported their perceptions of usefulness and intention to use the information resources links integrated into the hazard and near-miss reporting system. The students demonstrated a significant preference for the category-based interface as compared with the question-based interface (P < .001). Mean scores for perceptions of usefulness and intention to use the context-specific links in the hazard and near-miss reporting system for reference purposes reflected moderate to strong agreement.
