Title INTERACTIVE EDUCATIONAL MATERIAL FOR PEDIATRIC BONE MARROW TRANSPLANTATION NURSES
Product Type material for open learning
Within the scope of our project, an innovative and up-to-date interactive educational material equipped with practical knowledge was developed for pediatric bone marrow transplantation nurses. The developed system provides opportunity for pediatric BMT nurses to determine their own educational needs with its self-assessment, evaluation and guiding tools. In addition, the proficiency level determination tests will provide immediate feedback to the users.
The overall aim of the project is utilization of nursing care in the pediatric bone marrow transplantation field in the most efficient and supportive way in order to increase the success rate in bone marrow transplantation procedures and post-transplantation care services and consequently contribute to public health.
The e-training material developed within the scope of our project aims to increase skill and knowledge levels of BMT nurses in Europe by using interactive web based tools. The e-training material works on its official web portal. Each user is able to reach the educational portal by using his/her specific password. This enables the users to access the information simultaneously from all over the Europe.
The e-training and self-evaluation and measurement tools developed within the scope of the project are planned to supplement the BMT nurses’ theoretical and practical knowledge and contribute to the standardization process in daily practice. The e-library section of the portal will encompass courses and case studies on important topics relating to pediatric BMT. In the self-evaluation and measurement section, there will be quizzes related to the e-training content presented on the portal on 36 different topics. The multi-language portal is available in Turkish, English, German, Spanish and Czech languages and it contain forum area "nurse cafe" where nurses, physicians and patients can share information and exchange views. Pediatric BMT administration protocols addressed in current literature generally cover preparation regimes only. There is lack of knowledge in supportive therapy and services especially in pediatric BMT. Therefore our project aims at pediatric BMT nurse training which we believe would lead to an improvement in patient safety in the long-term.
Target group The main target group of project is pediatric BMT nurses;however,patients,patient family/relatives and doctors can benefit from the project indirectly.
Result Project has an official web portal on www.bmtcare.com, on which the finalized part of the e-training material was uploaded with the means of developed e-training tool. Web portal and e-training tool within the portal are available in English and partners'respective languages (TR,DE,ES,CZE. The project web portal is the main tool for partners communication,project management, content development, and dissemination and exploitation of project outputs.
Area of application Pilot studies were performed with the pilot study groups at the BMT centers in project partners'respective countries. The results from the pilot studies conducted in Turkey, Spain, Germany, and Czech Republic are available through Adam portal by any inteersted parties.
