Title: Rethinking How to Create a Health Disparity Tutorial
Objectives: Health disparities refer to differences between people that result in how diseases are diagnosed or treated, or how a disease affects a group; it also refers to access and/or availability of health care. Health disparities are a major factor in driving up health care costs in the United States. In spring 2009, I was awarded a professional development leave from my institution to create an online tutorial on how to conduct research into a health disparity issue. The major objectives of this project are to investigate different modes of presenting material in a tutorial format using various software, creating the tutorial, and then presenting it to various entities on campus to develop awareness and usage of the tutorial.
Methods: A literature search was done to identify best practices in creating online tutorial modules. Content for the health disparity case study used in the tutorial was created using Camtasia and Lectora software. Promotion of the tutorial began with identified entities in the academic health center.
Results and Conclusions: My results and conclusions are not complete yet.
