Title: Using iPads to Improve Educational Satisfaction and Clinical Care
Objective: The purpose of this study is to improve the quality of medical education and clinical care by harnessing technologies to facilitate information gathering and clinical decision making. The project will use the iPad as a tool for improving resident, medical student, and attending physician education by facilitating easier access to clinical tools, patient care data, and patient education information.
Methods: The study involves four teams from the department of medicine at an academic medical center including attending physicians, residents, interns, and medical students. The teams will be randomized into two arms: the iPad arm and the control arm. The control arm will receive training on educational resources that are accessible on computers. Teams in the iPad arm will receive an iPad to use for eight weeks, the same training as the control arm, and training on iPad operations. All teams will be asked to complete weekly surveys on their use of educational resources or the iPad, depending on which arm they are in, as well as a final survey addressing the outcomes of interest: the ease of use and accessibility of the iPad or educational resources, and perceived improvements in individual learning, team learning, work flow, and patient care.
Results and Conclusions: My results and conclusions are not complete yet.
