Using E-Learning to Improve Prescribing Practice in Emerging Prescribers
Baskett, Karen
Teaching English with Technology, v11 n1 p98-109 2011
This paper reports on "The National Prescribing Curriculum" (NPC), a series of online, case-based modules designed to improve prescribing performance and confidence in emerging Australian prescribers. The modules mirror the decision-making process outlined in the "WHO Guide to Good Prescribing" (de Vries "et al.", 1994) and were developed as an initiative to combat emerging data that, increasingly, medical graduates demonstrate shortfalls in basic pharmacological knowledge and prescribing skills (Hilmer "et al.", 2009). The modules are situated in real life situations and include complex, authentic tasks. As most learners access the modules in a self-paced mode, sophisticated levels of expert and peer feedback have been integrated into the modules.
