Title: Rethinking Web Training: Using a Learning Management System for Search Skills Training
Objective: The goal of this training project has been to develop a course to train nursing personnel in the techniques of literature searching to support evidence-based nursing practice. The web-based tutorial developed by a collaborative team of librarians and nursing educators will be accessible to nursing employees from their desktops via a nationwide learning management system.
Methods: Working collaboratively with two nurses from the office of nursing services, two librarians developed the course content, including the script, video screen captures, and PowerPoint slides. The online course, “Searching for the Best Evidence: A Collaborative Project,” was created with the use of Camtasia Studio software to capture live search demos with voice-overs. A professional production crew produced storyboards, integrated animation, and added graphics to complete the interactive module. The learning module will be posted on the learning management system, where it will be available as a one-hour, computer-based training module for all nurses. Each nurse can take the online training at the point of need and receive one hour continuing education credit upon completion.
Results: The content has been finalized, and the learning module is in production. We anticipate using multiple methods to make known the module’s availability. Further, we plan to evaluate its accessibility and value
Conclusions: The learning module, “Searching for the Best Evidence: A Collaborative Project,” will provide enhanced learning for evidence-based nursing practice at the point of need. This web-based tutorial will provide national training for Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) nurses across the 153 facilities and numerous other care delivery settings and introduce them to the knowledge-based information resources available to support their work. This project provided an opportunity for rethinking and reforging relationships between medical librarians and nursing personnel.
