A Multidisciplinary Approach to a Learning System For Health-Care Professionals.
Baldwin, Patricia J.; Tucker, Joseph A.
Since much of the education of physicians and nurses centers on the diagnosis and treatment of acute medical and surgical conditions, the relatively asymptomatic hypertensive patient may not be diagnosed and treated before serious consequences such as stroke, kidney and/or heart failure occur. Presently being planned is a multimedia educational system to teach professional nurses the knowledge and skills necessary to manage the hypertensive individual. Due to the varied education and experience backgrounds among nurses, the program will provide alternate routes through the learning system. Phase I will entail planning and development; Phase II, field testing, evaluation, and modification; and Phase III, professional production and packaging. (STS)
