Clinical Topic: The goal of this project was to develop an interactive, multimedia presentation in the form of a CD-ROM, to complement the orientation of nurses in the ED setting. This CD-ROM is titled "Emergency Nursing Series Volume I." It contains: Part I: Introduction to Emergency Nursing, and Part II: Focused Nursing Assessment. The CD-ROM allows the orientee to proceed at their own pace, while saving ED time and resources. Implementation: The implementation included: (1) writing a grant proposal for the development of the CD-ROM; (2) obtaining administrative approval and support; (3) submission of proposal to ENAF for funding; (4) discussion with media personnel regarding the integration of purpose, content and evaluation of orientation materials in the CD-ROM; (5) creation of the CD-ROM; (6) pilot testing; (7) using the CD-ROM in orientation; and (8) final evaluation. So far, four nurses have viewed the CD-ROM as part of their orientation to the emergency department. Outcomes: Preliminary results are positive. After viewing the CD-ROM, the orientees completed an evaluation form with 5 parameters: (1) relevance to everyday practice; (2) understanding of the presented topics; (3) retention of the presented topics; (4) orientee's transition into this ED setting; and (5) learning assessment and prioritizing. Orientees were asked to rate the CD-ROM portion of their orientation, using a scale of 1-5, where "1" was not relevant/not helpful, and "5" was extremely relevant/extremely helpful. One nurse rated the CD-ROM as a "4" for relevance and for helping in assessment and prioritizing and as a "3" for helping to understand the topics, remember salient points, and transition into our setting. Three fourth of orientees rated the CD-ROM as a "5" in all five parameters. An open-ended question asked for recommendations from orientees regarding the CD-ROM. Two asked for more pictures to accompany the case studies; one asked for more text with the modules. Recommendations: The use of personal computers-based interactive multi-media approach to teaching and learning opens up exciting possibilities in the professional development of emergency nurses. If the CD-ROM format proves helpful in saving resources in the orientation process in our ED setting, it may also be helpful in other ED settings. [Clinical Poster]
