Biography

I am Associate Dean for Simulation and Technology, Samuel T. Hughes Professor of Nursing, and and the Director of Pediatric, Acute Care Pediatric and Neonatal Nurse Practitioner Programs at UT Arlington, College of Nursing and Health Innovation (UTACONHI). I teach courses in my two areas of expertise, pediatric and neonatal care. I have developed game-based simulators in three contexts:  undergraduate pediatric nursing education, post-graduate registered nurses, and graduate neonatal nurse practitioners (NNP) education. Each uses 3-Dimensionl, game-based technology to create immersive worlds that represents the physical, auditory, cultural, behavioral and emotional characteristics in increasingly realistic ways that support asynchronous, non-linear, deliberate practice opportunities and present a variety of disease states in patients with different levels of acuity.

The undergraduate project and post-graduate registered nurses game-based simulators are designed to assess nurses’ ability to recognize and act on early changes in patient status.  There are varying levels of difficulty depending on the participant.  Each simulation presents four hospitalized patients. The student-simulator coaches students through the process of assessment, recognition of change in patient status, performance of autonomous nursing actions, reassessment, review of physician orders, perform ordered interventions, reassessment, and escalation when appropriate for each of their patients. The post-graduate simulator allows the RN to perform these functions independently.  Each simulation begins with shift-change report using the Situation, Background, Assessment, and Recommendation format. During the shift, one of the patients deteriorates (preselected by a facilitator or randomly selected by the game) requiring detection and action by the nurse.

The NNP game-based simulator resides in an internet-based ‘living-world’ classroom, with a living textbook and a virtual NICU developed in collaboration  with nationally recognized neonatal experts. The curriculum will be implemented locally in 2012 followed by licensing opportunities to schools of nursing with NNP programs. I am  considered an international expert on medical simulation and my  work has been presented in Florence, Italy at the Second International Pediatric Simulation Symposium and Workshops. I have been an invited speaker at the Third International Pediatric Simulation Symposium in Madrid Spain, and I have received National and International awards which includes: Bayada Technology Award twice for innovation in teaching, Innovation in Teaching from The University of Texas at Arlington, the Innovation in Education Award from The University of Texas System, 1st place at Second Annual International Pediatric Simulation Symposium and Workshop, and 3rd place for Emerging and Innovative Methods and Technology Research at the 10th Annual International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare for my work: Virtual Infant Patients, Families, and Staff Collaboration: Simulating Situational Medical Scenarios with a Virtual Living World. This year I won 1st place at the 11th Annual International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare for, Game Play Teach Student Nurses How to Save Lives? I a  well respected and funded researcher and the results of her research have been published in medical and technology peer review journals.

      Education

      A charge nurse barking instructions. A baby turning blue. Parents in distress. These elements can rattle a student nurse, and they’re all covered in game-based training simulations Judy LeFlore created with the Arts and Technology department at the University of Texas at Dallas. Virtual patients give nurses the chance to see, for example, a retraction in a chest and hear a cough symptomatic of pneumonia. Students must treat patients in real time, with consequences if a mistake is made (e.g., the ice-blue infant).

      “In my day, you went to the bedside very early, and everything I learned, I learned on patients,” says LeFlore, a nurse practitioner at Children’s Medical Center of Dallas and associate professor at the University of Texas at Arlington. “I want to give new nurses as many opportunities to practice in a safe, nonthreatening environment—safe for the patient and the nurse—before we put them at the bedside.”

      LeFlore is again collaborating with UTD, this time to build an online program for neonatal nurse practitioners that offers printable lectures along with interactive games. She says educators need to be forward-thinking in the way they train nurses, whom she sees as “the most important component in patient outcomes.”

    • Jan 2011 Legacy of Women
    • Jan 2011 Bayada Innovation in Education Award

      The recipient of the Bayada Award for Technological Innovation in Nursing Education, Dr Judy LeFlore, developed a learning activity leveraging the interactive capabilities of the 3-D virtual world to create an environment that allows students to apply knowledge and demonstrate mastery of nursing concepts in a realistic setting. Outcomes of this controlled randomized study showed significant difference between students participating traditional lecture and those who used iNursing RN. Students, who utilized iNursing RN, demonstrated a higher level of mastery. Results of this research demonstrates that knowledge acquisition and application transfers from a virtual environment to direct patient care and that this method has significant potential for transforming nursing education

      VIRTUAL INFANT PATIENTS, FAMILIES, AND STAFF COLLABORATION: SIMULATING SITUATIONAL MEDICAL SCENARIOS WITH A VIRTUAL LIVING WORLD

      Medical training simulations mirroring the immersive environment of commercial video games offer benefits superior to physical mannequins. We have developed a recursive platform for the development and visualization of socio-cultural models in medical situations. The model integrates visualization, sound design, and behavioral/cultural modeling with recursive assessment tools to create a living world that is sensory and culturally realistic.

      CAN GAME PLAY TEACH STUDENT NURSES HOW TO SAVE LIVES: AN UNDERGRADUATE TRAINING PROPOSAL FOR STUDENT NURSES IN PEDIATRIC RESPIRATORY DISEASES WITH A LIVING WORLD GAMING CONSTRUCT

      The academic environment tends to “abstract” clinical concepts by teaching them in the classroom, i.e., out of context. Immersive video game technology may be a powerful medium for delivering nursing content and offers a variety of benefits superior to physical mannequins or standardized patients. The purpose of the study was to compare pediatric respiratory content delivered through a virtual world to the standard “in the seat lecture”.

      Interprofessional education: Students’ perspectives

      Describe students’ perspectives of IPE at the beginning and end of an IPE program.
      Interpret data to provide strategies for those considering IPE programs.
      • Purpose: The purpose of this study was to describe students’, including Pediatric and Acute Care Pediatric Nurse Practitioner and Master of Social Work, perceptions of general and specific aspects of IPE prior to and at the end of an IPE program lasting two semesters.
