Project Overview
In an effort to remedy the deficiency in access to quality pediatric continuing education, new approaches using interactive videodisc technology need to be implemented. Goal: reduce the mortality and morbidity experienced by children in life-threatening medical emergency situations through improved training of EMS personnel, with particular emphasis on those serving in rural areas. Objectives: (1) design and produce an interactive multimedia courseware program on pediatric medical emergencies for prehospital EMS personnel; (2) make program available for us in EMS units throughout Idaho, using the mobile interactive training unit approach; (3) make program available for use by other EMS programs in the country to educate prehospital EMS personnel.
