A review of student answers to diagnostic questions concerned with Newton's Laws showed a tendency for some students to change their answer to a question when the following question caused them to think more about the situation. We investigate this behavior and interpret it in the framework of the resource model; in particular, a weak Newton's Third Law structure being dominated by an inconsistent Newton's Second Law (or "Net Force") structure, in the absence of a strong, consistent Newtonian structure. This observation highlights the hidden problem in instruction where the implicit use of Newton's Third Law is dominated by the explicit conceptual and mathematical application of Newton's Second Law, both within individual courses and across a degree program. To facilitate students' development of a consistent Newtonian knowledge structure, it is important that instructors highlight the interrelated nature of Newton's Laws in problem solving. © 2015 American Association of Physics Teachers.

Health information technology (IT) may improve patient safety and quality, but the application of new technology in health care may also increase patient safety hazards. The complexity of organizations, work practices and physical environments within the healthcare sector impacts the development and application of health IT. Clinical simulation can be used to evaluate technology in differing clinical contexts, throughout the software development life cycle in nursing informatics. Clinical simulation may be conducted in a range of settings varying from simulation laboratories to simulation in real settings. Clinical simulation supports involvement of context in pre-implementation design and evaluation of health IT involving real end-users as they use technology in realistic environments performing realistic tasks. The inclusion of clinical context is a powerful element of clinical simulation and enables visualization of technology in connection with clinical context without endangering patients. © 2016 IMIA and IOS Press.
