Abstract:Electronic medical record (EMR) systems are being implemented widely in hospital and office based settings. This technology is becoming a standard documentation modality for inpatient and outpatient clinical settings. While practicing clinicians have learned to use these systems with the benefit of institutional or practice based training, the educational benefit of providing EMR training to students prior to their exposure to the clinical environment has not been widely explored. This preliminary research evaluated multiple EMR systems for educational use in a nursing school curriculum. EMR training including classroom lectures, computer based training sessions and practice with interdisciplinary medical simulation are incorporated in this educational program, providing students access to an EMR system before using one with actual patients. The ADDIE model of systemic instructional design was utilized for this study. Additionally, deliberate practice, an evidence-based construct grounded in information processing and behavioral theories of skill acquisition and maintenance guided the design of this study. Preliminary results reveal a high level of learner interest and satisfaction with the training methodology. Further exploration of EMR systems and the impact this component has on nursing education and practice are planned.
