Abstract:
Using technology to provide and enhance client education is in its infancy. Community health nursing student teams in collaboration with a community organization conducted a needs assessment in the fall of 2006. In the winter of 2007 the students planned, implemented, and evaluated a technology enhanced intervention aimed at addressing identified needs. This presentation will describe the four creative student projects that enhanced client education through the use of a number of innovative technological solutions. These include the students developing a palliative care video with staff from a community seniors residence, developing a website for a program to raise staff awareness and facilitate client accessibility to services, using a podcast to present age appropriate web based health promotion materials, and developing a website for parent educators to have access to quality resources. This project based community health practicum encouraged the students to respond to the clients? needs and interests. The nursing students were very innovative in suggesting and then implementing appropriate technology based solutions to enhancing client education in these four unique projects.
