Abstract
HUMRRO INTERNATIONAL, INCORPORATED PROPOSES TO DEVELOP AND EVALUATE THREE PROTOTYPE VIDEODISC-BASED MODULES FOR USE IN MAINTAINING THE SKILLS OF EMERGENCY MEDICAL TECHNICIANS (EMTS).

DURING PHASE I THE PROTOTYPE VIDEODISC MODULES WILL BE TESTED FOR USER ACCEPTANCE; DURING PHASE II THE MODULES WILL BE EVALUATED FOR EFFECTIVENESS IN ELIMINIATING SKILL DECAY IN EMTS AND PARAMEDICS.
