Abstract:

THE ULTIMATE GOAL OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO PRODUCE A MARKETABLE, INTERACTIVE VIDEODISK (IVD) MODULE PROTOTYPE THAT EFFECTIVELY AND EFFICIENTLY PREPARES PATIENTS FOR SELF-CARE MANAGEMENT OF ISCHEMIC HEART DISEASE AND ACCOMMODATES ADULTS WITH LOW LITERACY AND WITHOUT COMPUTER SKILLS. THE MODULE, A SELF-INSTRUCTIONAL MULTIMEDIA PACKAGE, ADDRESSES THE PERVASIVE NEED TO PREPARE PATIENTS FOR SELF-CARE MANAGEMENT WITHOUT BURDENING LIMITED HEALTH CARE RESOURCES. SPECIFICALLY, PHASE I AIMS ARE TO: DETERMINE THE OPTIMUM COST-EFFECTIVE IVD HARDWARE CONFIGURATION TO ACCOMMODATE ADULTS WITH AVERAGE TO BELOW-AVERAGE LITERACY AND WITHOUT COMPUTER SKILLS; (2) IDENTIFY THE MOST COST-EFFECTIVE METHOD OF WRITING THE IVD COMPUTER SOFTWARE FOR A COMMERCIALLY DISTRIBUTED PRODUCT; (3) DEVELOP AN APPROPRIATETASK ANALYSIS, INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGN PLAN, AND IVD STORYBOARD; AND (4) HAVE THESE MATERIALS CRITIQUED BY A PANEL OF EXPERTS. THE PHASE II PROJECT WILL: (1) PRODUCE AN IVD MODULE AND A COMPARABLE LINEAR VIDEO MODULE BASED ON THE INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS DEVELOPED IN PHASE I, (2) PILOT TEST THE MODULES TO IDENTIFY AREAS FOR ENHANCEMENT, (3) MAKE APPROPRIATE REVISIONS, (4) COMPARE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE MODULES IN ACONTROLLED EXPERIMENT, AND (5) DEVELOP A MARKETING PLAN.
