Web-based learning: Is it an effective method for educating pediatric residents about transition to adult subspecialty congenital heart disease care? (pp. 585-593) $45.00
Authors:  Arwa Saidi, John Reiss, Petar Breitinger
Abstract:
The incidence of congenital heart disease (CHD) is 1% with over 90% of patients surviving until adulthood. Improved survival requires transition from pediatric-focused to adult-centered cardiac care but this is not routinely performed. A fundamental barrier to transition is a lack of physician education and training. There is little data on how to train residents to properly transition their pediatric patients and prepare them for independent adult health care. Interactive web based programs have been successfully introduced into pediatric residency training curricula. Using an interactive web based module to provide education regarding transition of care is an accessible and logical way to introduce transition related policies, principles and practices into the pediatric residency training program.

Methods: An interactive web based module was prepared and sent by e-mail to all pediatric residents (n=49) at our institution. The residents were asked to complete a pretest, review the module and complete a post test.

Results: A total of 30 residents completed the pre-test, viewed the module and completed the post test (response rate of 61%). The average pretest grade was 73% (SD=11.2) and the average post test grade was 82% (SD=9.7) (p =0.0012). There was improvement in knowledge base in 22 (73.3%) of the residents who completed the pre and post test.

Conclusion: A web based module can be used to educate pediatric residents about the importance of transition and how to incorporate these methods into their practice. This module can easily be adapted to other pediatric sub-specialties.
