Background Patient safety is a global concern. Learning to provide safe, high quality care is core to nursing education.
Problem Students are exposed to diverse clinical practices, and experiences may vary between placements and across countries. Student experience is seldom used as an educational resource.
Approach An international, EU-funded project SLIPPs aimed to develop an innovative online educational package to assist patient safety learning. Based on student reported data and educational theory, multiple elements were iteratively developed by a multi-country, multidisciplinary group.
Outcomes The educational package is freely available on the SLIPPs website. Materials include; Student reporting and reflection tool, virtual seminars, student reports dataset, pedagogical game, high-fidelity simulation scenarios, scenario development and use guidelines, debriefing session model, videos of simulations already performed.
Conclusions E-learning enables removal of physical barriers allowing educators, professionals and students from all over the world to collaborate, interact and learn from each other.
