Definitive Dialing...Nursing Dial Access.
Niles, Anne G.
Nursing Dial Access, a taped library available by telephone to professional nurses in Wisconsin, was developed by the Department of Nursing Health Sciences Unit, University Extension, at the University of Wisconsin, under a grant from the Wisconsin Regional Medical Program. The program, available on an around-the-clock basis, provides short tapes on a variety of nursing and medical subjects and may be used from any telephone, free of charge to Wisconsin callers. The library presents core information in the categories: nursing care emergency situations; new procedures and equipment; recent developments in nursing; and legal aspects in nursing. Nursing Dial Access averages 1,000 calls a month. A survey of the users indicated that: the program has been found to be an appropriate way to provide certain types of information; nurses have accepted this information retrieval system; and the program has been successful in meeting its purpose--to assist nurses outside the metropolitan areas of the state. (Appendixes include a bibliography of tapes, guidelines for developing dial access libraries, and lists of tapes available to states other than Wisconsin. (PT)
