Abstract
A PILOT SERIES OF THREE COMPUTER-INTERACTIVE VIDEODISK (CIVD) MODULES WILL BE DEVELOPED FOR TEACHING TOPICS IN TRANSFUSION MEDICINE (TM). THE CONTENT OF THE CIVD MODULES IS DETERMINED FROM THE NHLBI NATIONAL TM CURRICULUM AND INCORPORATES BOTH THE ETHICAL AND PSYCHOSOCIAL ISSUES INVOLVED IN THE PRACTICE OF TM. THE AUDIOVISUAL ELEMENT OF THE CIVD PACKAGES WILL BE SUPPLEMENTED BY APPROPRIATE WRITTEN MATERIAL IN BOOKLET FORM, WHICH WILL EMPHASIZE THE IMPORTANT MEDICAL INFORMATION PERTAINING TO TM AND WILL ALSOOFFER SHORT SELF-ASSESSMENT TESTS. THE ULTIMATE AIM OF THE PHASE I PILOT SERIES WILL BE TO TEST THE TEACHING EFFECTIVE-NESS OF CIVD MODULES AND TO ESTABLISH AN APPROPRIATE PRODUCTION AND MARKETING SCHEDULE FOR A COMPLETE SERIES OF 10 TO 12 CIVD MODULES, TO BE PRODUCED IN PHASE II. THE LONG-TERM OBJECTIVES OF THE COMPLETE SERIES WILL BE TO EDUCATE NURSING STUDENTS, MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY STUDENTS, MEDICAL STUDENTS, RESIDENTS, AND FELLOWS REGARDING THE FOLLOWING: APPROPRIATE ASPECTS OF BLOOD DISEASES AND BLOOD RESOURCES; THE USE OF CURRENT TECHNOLOGY AND PROCEDURES TO ELIMINATE THE HAZARDS OF BLOOD TRANSFUSION; AND THE IMPROVE-MENT OF BLOOD MANAGEMENT AND BLOOD ORDERING HABITS FOR MORE EFFECTIVE USE OF BLOOD PRODUCTS. THROUGH CIVD, ALL OF THESEOBJECTIVES WILL BE ADDRESSED WHILE MAINTAINING A PATIENT- ORIENTED APPROACH.
