Nielsen, Don; Sigurdsson, Sigurdur O.; Austin, John
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v42 n3 p551-561 Fall 2009
This study evaluated video scoring and feedback about scoring as a safety intervention among 6 nursing staff. The dependent variable was safety behavior on one-person transfers. Following baseline, 5 nursing staff participated in an information phase. A video scoring phase was then introduced for all 6. A feedback phase was added for 2 participants. All participants experienced treatment withdrawal. Information resulted in improvements for all 5 participants who received it. Further improvements were observed during video scoring for the 5 participants who improved following information. No improvements were observed for the participant who received only video scoring. Safety feedback further improved safety for the 2 participants who received it. However participants' behavior returned to video scoring levels during withdrawal. (Contains 2 figures and 2 tables.)
