Abstract

Abstract: Background: Emergency department employees are exposed to a significant number of sick patients and a wide range of dangerous situations in a congested emergency and trauma department with a high patient turnover. Their understanding of occupational dangers particular to their professions, as well as administrative processes for mitigating such risks, is important to their safety. As a result, the goal of this research is to look into an e-Training material for healthcare workers about emergency room dangers. This research was founded on Recognizing Hazard theory and E-learning theory. Methods: The Fuzzy Delphi Method (FDM) was used in the study, which was performed among 16 experts to select a list of material on the e-training content of risks. The basic content elements were established by a survey of literature and interviews with specialists. The items were chosen based on their replies to an FDM survey questionnaire according to a seven-Likert linguist scale. The ‘threshold’ value (d) was used to determine the expert’ consensus for the questionnaire, whereas defuzzification (Amax) values recorded the experts’ recommendations. Results: Only 14 contents were accepted based on expert consensus. This resulted in the conclusion that the content finding demonstrated a high degree of acceptability among experts, and the finding suggested the necessity of undertaking curriculum design. Conclusion: Further research can concentrate on additional online training implementation curriculum packages that might be designed for unique learner needs, such as post-natural disaster training, rookie health care worker training, and others.
