Doctor of Health Science Camilla Strandell-Laine researched the subject during 2013-2019 in her dissertation research project “Nursing student-nurse teacher cooperation using mobile technology during the clinical practicum”. As a part of the dissertation research, a practical guidance module was created in the Study@ learning environment, and its efficiency was tested in an experimental setting during the students’ clinical practicum in different operational environments of the health sector. Mobile guidance turned out to be an effective method.

We congratulate the new doctor for the valuable, meritorious and persistent scientific work! We also thank her for the great collaboration and constructive feedback on improving the application. We are very pleased having been part of the research project with our Study@ product. We were able to create an entirely new function for practical training guidance, and based on the received feedback, we are now developing an improved version of the application that was used in the research. The improved application will be published in the following summer, comments company CEO Petri Huttunen.
