A Comparison of Learning Method (CAM-ICU) Between E-learning and Conventional Face-to-face Lecture and Demonstration

2016-12-01 16:08:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Delirium is an acute and fluctuating disturbance of consciousness characterized by reduced attention, impaired cognition and perception, usually resulting from general physical conditions. Delirium contributes to longer hospital length of stay, increased mortality, increased healthcare costs, and long-term cognitive and functional impairment. However, it is often underdiagnosed and undertreated. E-learning (electronic learning) proves to be a time-efficient, flexible and convenient training method, making it suitable for a large organization like Siriraj hospital where there is a large employee turnover rate. So the investigators want to compare the passing rate between the e-learning group and the traditional learning group.

Description

Primary objective: Compare the passing rate between the e-learning group and the traditional learning group

Secondary objectives: Assess the trainees' satisfaction and problems associated with e-learning implementation, Investigate the causes of inaccurate CAM-ICU assessment for improvement in future training sessions

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Cognitive disorders including delirium, dementia, and other cognitive disorders. These may be the result of substance use, trauma, or other causes.

Change in learning in one situation due to prior learning in another situation. The transfer can be positive (with second learning improved by first) or negative (where the reverse holds).

An acute organic mental disorder induced by cessation or reduction in chronic alcohol consumption. Clinical characteristics include CONFUSION; DELUSIONS; vivid HALLUCINATIONS; TREMOR; agitation; insomnia; and signs of autonomic hyperactivity (e.g., elevated blood pressure and heart rate, dilated pupils, and diaphoresis). This condition may occasionally be fatal. It was formerly called delirium tremens. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1175)

A principle that learning is facilitated when the learner receives immediate evaluation of learning performance. The concept also hypothesizes that learning is facilitated when the learner is promptly informed whether a response is correct, and, if incorrect, of the direction of error.

Learning that is manifested in the ability to respond differentially to various stimuli.
