Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This study was conducted to determine the effectiveness of an educational module on medical malpractice litigation and the use of evidence-based practice guidelines. Data regarding knowledge acquisition, ease of use, and the perceived value of the educational module were collected. A pretest-posttest design was used. There was a statistically significant difference in the proportion of participants who responded correctly to the post-test items after viewing the educational program (p < .05). Data from this study indicated that this self-study module was a valuable tool for education on the specified content. This study also provides evidence of the effectiveness of integrating theory, clinical inquiry, and evidence-based practice into a self-paced educational program about medical malpractice litigation. Evaluation of a self-paced educational program contributes to the body of knowledge on the use of educational strategies to promote patient safety and reduce liability.
