Intervention/exposure
Study type
Interventional
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
The intervention session consists of a three part delirium education program (total of 2 hours). Each participant will undertake one session.
(1) face-to-face delirium care educational lecture by an ICU clinical nurse (30 minutes in duration);
(2) online delirium care learning videos, including 5 videos for delirium care which designed specifically for this study (30 minutes in duration);
(3) Simulation education: role-play scenario-based education initiative and objective structured clinical examination (OSCE) conducted by an ICU clinical nurse (60 minutes in duration).

The control group will received the same (1) face-to-face delirium care educational lecture; and (2) online delirium care learning videos.

Outcomes
Primary outcome [1] 321976 0

Measures will be assessed at three timepoints: T0 (Baseline), T1 (Immediately after the intervention), T2 (Six weeks after the intervention).
Secondary outcome [1] 376899 0
A specific self-efficacy scale which modified from General Self-Efficacy Scale (GSE) for assessing delirium care self-efficacy will be used and it has been examined by five experts to confirm the content validity and face validity will be adopted.

Summary
Brief summary
OSCEs are simulated ‘real life’ clinical scenarios presented to clinicians who are required to demonstrate to an assessor the clinical tasks which form an OSCE scenario. This study aim to evaluate the effects of implementing a Scenario-based education intervention, including objective structured clinical examinations (OSCEs) on delirium care among healthcare professionals. This is a knowledge translation research, builds on eight years of delirium care research in University of Wollongong, Australia. The research will be undertaken at ICUs in a medical center in northern Taiwan with a randomised controlled trial to determine the effects of implementing a scenario-based education intervention. The hypothesis is: Scenario-based education intervention including OSCE can increase the competence and self-efficacy among healthcare professionals in delirium care.
