ABSTRACT: Is there a need for a specific educational scholarship for using e-learning in medical education?

We propose the need for a specific educational scholarship when using e-learning in medical education. Effective e-learning has additional factors that require specific critical attention, including the design and delivery of e-learning. An important aspect is the recognition that e-learning is a complex intervention, with several interconnecting components that have

ABSTRACT: Effects of Mobile Learning in Medical Education: A Counterfactual Evaluation

The aim of this research is to contribute to the general system education providing new insights and resources. This study performs a quasi-experimental study at University of Salamanca with 30 students to compare results between using an anatomic app for learning and the formal traditional method conducted by a teacher.

MANUSCRIPT: How do junior medical officers use online information resources? A survey.

BACKGROUND: Online information resources function dually as important learning tools and sources of the latest evidence-based recommendations for junior medical officers (JMOs). However, little is currently known about how JMOs utilise this information when providing care for their patients. This study aimed to examine the usage and experience of online information

ABSTRACT: Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Training for Radiology Residents: Lecture Versus Interactive Learning Module

RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES: A prospective randomized study was conducted to assess whether an electronic learning module was as effective as a didactic lecture to teach musculoskeletal ultrasound to radiology residents. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirty-three residents were randomized into a module group versus a didactic group. All residents took a written "pretest" to assess

MANUSCRIPT: eLearning to facilitate the education and implementation of the Chelsea Critical Care Physical Assessment: a novel measure of function in critical illness

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy of eLearning in the widespread standardised teaching, distribution and implementation of the Chelsea Critical Care Physical Assessment (CPAx) tool-a validated tool to assess physical function in critically ill patients. DESIGN: Prospective educational study. An eLearning module was developed through a conceptual framework, using the four-stage technique for skills

ABSTRACT: Connectivism: A knowledge learning theory for the digital age?

BACKGROUND: The emergence of the internet, particularly Web 2.0 has provided access to the views and opinions of a wide range of individuals opening up opportunities for new forms of communication and knowledge formation. Previous ways of navigating and filtering available information are likely to prove ineffective in these new contexts.

ABSTRACT: E-Learning in Urology: Implementation of the Learning and Teaching Platform CASUS

BACKGROUND: E-learning is playing an increasing role in medical education, supporting a problem-based and practical oriented education without putting patients at risk and compensating for the decrease in instructor-centered teaching. Not much research has been done concerning learning effects and reaction on behalf of the students. METHODS: We created computer-based cases for four

ABSTRACT: A Survey of Simulation Utilization in Anesthesiology Residency Programs in the United States

Given the evolution of competency-based education and evidence supporting the benefits of incorporating simulation into anesthesiology residency training, simulation will likely play an important role in the training and assessment of anesthesiology residents. Currently, there are little data available regarding the current status of simulation-based curricula across US residency programs.
