June 2004 LSTA Funded Grant Project
This project entailed the provision of tablet PCs to nursing staff on patient units. Unit-specific resource pages listed frequently prescribed medications, common procedures, and other nurse educator-provided information for use with bedside patient education. Krames patient education documents were converted to PDF form, and made available from unit pages for printing as handouts. I also created a modular tutorial to help staff learn about using and troubleshooting the tablet PC, as well as searching for specific content and reaching out to the medical library for further support.

Partnering Tutorial Revised

  1. 1. Welcome to Your Unit-Based Patient Education Resource!   This tutorial is designed to enable you to quickly become familiar with what you need to know when you need to know it – and when you need more information, it’s a resource you can easily consult.   The modules are designed to take around 30 minutes, and are followed by a brief post-test.  On the left side of this page, you'll notice an index to the various modules of the tutorial which will help you get around at your own pace, easily and quickly.  Tutorial Introduction Getting Up to Speed Part 1 Getting Up to Speed Part 2 Additional Resources Partnering for Patient Education: Tutorials You can follow the entire sequence of tutorials by clicking on the symbols at the bottom of each page.  Go back to the previous page by clicking on the back arrow. If you’d prefer, you can leave any time by simply choosing to the Home icon at the bottom left of every screen - or by closing this browser window. Later, find your place by using the menu on the left of every page.
  2. 2. Here’s a quick look at using your unit web page for providing patient education.   Objectives :   By the time you complete Part 1 of this two-part module, you'll be able to start up and turn off your unit's tablet PC, find important keys on the keyboard, and adjust the screen and volume for your patient’s comfort. Part 2 will enable you to locate your own unit's resource page, to select and display an interactive tutorial for your patients, and to print any documents provided.    Evaluation:   Your ability to perform these skills will be measured by means of a brief post-test.  Your responses will be submitted to your supervisor.   The Getting up to Speed tutorial modules are designed so that you can easily proceed from one step to the next by clicking on next >  at the bottom right of each screen. If you need to, you can also review the subjects out of sequence by selecting any of the sections. Return to any of the modules by using the menu on the left side of your screen. Instructions are given in italics like these . Are you ready?

  3. 3. Partnering for Patient Education: Getting Up To Speed Part 1 Your Unit's AV Cart Everything you need to use the tablet PC in providing patient education should be right on the cart: Not much to it, is there?  No matter whether you're comfortable with computers or not, it couldn't be simpler!  Plug it in, turn it on, find what you need, print out the documents that can help your patient remember what's important.  Take time right now to look at your AV cart and what’s on it. Safety Be sure to use the surge protector, and only plug the main power cord in to approved outlets.  Keep all liquids and sharp objects away from the screen, keyboard, printer, and any cords and surge protectors.   Infection Control You already know this: follow all the usual infection control procedures.  Wash your hands.  If your patient has an infectious disease, or if there are body substance contacts of any kind with any of the equipment, wipe down the keyboard and all other contact surfaces with one of the disinfectant towelettes provided.  Documentation It’s important to complete your patient’s Caremap as a record of their patient education. For any questions about this process, be sure to check with your manager or nurse educator. Additionally, because Partnering for Patient Education is a grant-funded initiative, you will be asked to maintain a record of what you use. Your careful record-keeping and feedback is a very important part of this process. <ul><li>Tutorial Modules </li></ul><ul><li>Getting Up to Speed Part 1 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Objectives </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Unit AV Cart, Safety, Infection Control </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Powering up, Turning off </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Keyboard </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Printer </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Viewing & Volume Adjustments </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Evaluation & Post-Test </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Getting Up to Speed Part 2 </li></ul><ul><li>Additional Resources </li></ul><ul><li>Surge Protector </li></ul><ul><li>Laminated card for cart </li></ul><ul><li>Paper for Printer </li></ul><ul><li>Log for Documentation </li></ul><ul><li>Printer </li></ul><ul><li>Disenfectant Towelettes </li></ul><ul><li>Tablet PC </li></ul>

All rights reserved Turning the Tablet On To turn on your unit's tablet PC, look for the power/on buttons.  In this illustration, 1 is a is a sliding switch you'll need to slide until the light is lit, and 2 is a power or standby light. Take a minute to locate this . Did you find it? … and off Always use this shut-down procedure before you unplug the Tablet PC in preparation for moving it from place to place. How to do this: On your screen, select then Turn off Computer , then Shut down . Standby puts your Tablet PC to sleep. This is useful when you need to step away for a minute, and know you’ll be back. Just wake it up by tapping on the keyboard. How to do this: Slide the power switch to the OFF position. Try it! Follow the directions to put the tablet in standby, then wake it back up. Did it work? Tip The Tablet’s screen may go black if you don’t use it for a few minutes. If this happens, just tap on the keyboard, and it will open in the view where it was prior to going dark. While this may seem annoying, it helps the Tablet’s battery to last longer. <ul><li>Tutorial Modules </li></ul><ul><li>Getting Up to Speed Part 1 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Objectives </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Unit AV Cart, Safety, Infection Control </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Powering up, Turning off </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Keyboard </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Printer </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Viewing & Volume Adjustments </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Evaluation & Post-Test </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Getting Up to Speed Part 2 </li></ul><ul><li>Additional Resources </li></ul>
  5. 5. Partnering for Patient Education: Getting Up To Speed Part 1 Tablet PC Keyboard Components 1 Num lock light: locks the number/letter keys to type only numbers. 2 Caps lock light: locks the number/letter keys to type only upper case letters. 3 Pointing stick : by moving this, you can move the cursor on your tablet’s screen. 4 Left and right pointing stick buttons: these work like left and right mouse buttons. Take a few minutes and check out the keyboard. It should be mostly familiar to you, with the possible exception of the pointing stick and pointing stick buttons. Find the pointing stick and take a minute to play with it, watching what happens on the screen as you do . Notice that it works just like a mouse? Next, click on the left and right pointing stick buttons, and see what happens. Later, when you take a look at the patient education tutorials, you’ll see where the pointing stick is used to select on-screen menu items. <ul><li>Tutorial Modules </li></ul><ul><li>Getting Up to Speed Part 1 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Objectives </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Unit AV Cart, Safety, Infection Control </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Powering up, Turning off </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Keyboard </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Printer </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Viewing & Volume Adjustments </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Evaluation & Post-Test </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Getting Up to Speed Part 2 </li></ul><ul><li>Additional Resources </li></ul>
  6. 6. Partnering for Patient Education: Getting Up To Speed Part 1 Using the Printer The printer included on your unit’s AV cart is known as a ‘mobile printer, and is nearly as high-tech as the tablet itself. But don’t let that scare you – the ‘high-tech’ just means it’s small and easy to use, and that it’s designed to work in an ever-changing environment, instead of on a desktop. Paper Your printer holds up to 45 sheets of regular printer or copier paper. That means that for some longer patient education documents, you’ll need to add paper – but it’s simple to do. Just insert the pages where the arrow is pointing in this illustration. Printing Documents With most documents, you can use your Windows printer icon to print. However, the patient education documents available through Partnering for Patient Education are all in the PDF format, which works a little bit differently. You’ll be learning how to do this in Getting Up To Speed Part 2. <ul><li>Tutorial Modules </li></ul><ul><li>Getting Up to Speed Part 1 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Objectives </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Unit AV Cart, Safety, Infection Control </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Powering up, Turning off </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Keyboard </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Printer </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Viewing & Volume Adjustments </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Evaluation & Post-Test </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Getting Up to Speed Part 2 </li></ul><ul><li>Additional Resources </li></ul>

  9. 9. : Getting Up To Speed Part 2 Objectives :   By the time you complete Part 2 of this two-part module, you’ll be able to locate your own unit's resource page, to select and display an interactive tutorial for your patients, and to print any documents provided.  You’ll be able to find links for patient education information for your own unit’s most frequently-prescribed medication, and where to look if what you need is not there. You’ll also know how to search in the Patient Education Catalog, and how to find resources “Beyond Our Walls,” in OSF Saint Francis approved sites for medication, disease, and wellness patient information. Evaluation:   Your ability to perform these skills will be measured by means of a brief post-test.  Your responses will be submitted to your nurse educator. The Getting up to Speed module is designed so that you can easily proceed from one step to the next by clicking on next >  at the bottom right of each screen. If you need to, you can also review the subjects out of sequence by selecting any of the sections. Return to any of the modules by using the contents listing on the left of your screen. Instructions are given in italics like these . Are you ready? Click on Next > to begin the first part of the Getting Up To Speed Part 2 tutorial module. <ul><li>Tutorial Modules </li></ul><ul><li>Getting Up to Speed Part 1 </li></ul><ul><li>Getting Up to Speed Part 2 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Unit-Specific Resources </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Medication Sheets </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>PDF Documents </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Flash Tutorials </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Searching the Patient Education Catalog </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Beyond Our Walls </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Evaluation & Post-Test </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Additional Resources </li></ul>
  10. 10. : Getting Up To Speed Part 2 Here’s part of the first page of the Partnering for Patient Education site. It’s organized by unit, making it easy to find your own unit’s page. We’ve chosen to use a Housewide Resource, the Adult Diabetes Center, to help you learn about the kinds of resources you’ll find and how to use them. The collections are made up of in-house and commercially-produced resources, and have been approved for use with OSF Saint Francis patients. Important! For some resources, you may be prompted to enter an ID and password. If you don’t know it – check the laminated card on your AV cart, or ask your nurse educator. Click on the Home link at the bottom left of this page to open the Partnering for Patient Education main page in another browser window. Unit-Specific Resources Tip: Getting back & forth from one browser window to another is easy – you’ll see the titles of the windows at the bottom of your screen, on a Windows frame. Just click the one you need! <ul><li>Tutorial Modules </li></ul><ul><li>Getting Up to Speed Part 1 </li></ul><ul><li>Getting Up to Speed Part 2 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Unit-Specific Resources </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Medication Sheets </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>PDF Documents </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Flash Tutorials </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Searching the Patient Education Catalog </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Beyond Our Walls </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Evaluation & Post-Test </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Additional Resources </li></ul>
  11. 11. : Getting Up To Speed Part 2 After you’ve taken a minute to look over the main page, click on the link for the Diabetes Center . Can you find it? It’s on the left side, under Housewide Resources . We’ll use that to look at the wide variety of patient education tutorials, forms, and handouts available. Notice that like the main page, the Diabetes Center page is divided into three parts. All the unit pages are organized in a similar way, so looking at this page will not only help you to become familiar with the Diabetes resource page, but will make the organization of your own unit’s page easier to use. On the left side there’s a column of resources beginning with Approved Online Resources. All the links listed here are available on every unit page <ul><li>Some of the names listed here may seem familiar to you – they’re databases like MDConsult that have been in use at OSF Saint Francis for years to provide quality information for patient care. They also contain quality patient education information you can use to provide up-to-date help to your patients. </li></ul><ul><li>Next is a link to a resource specifically for drug information, MicroMedex. </li></ul><ul><li>Housewide Resources is just what it sounds like; selecting this link will open up resource pages that are used by many units throughout OSF Saint Francis. </li></ul><ul><li>At the end of the right column, links are available to this tutorial series, and to the Library & Resource Center. </li></ul><ul><li>Tutorial Modules </li></ul><ul><li>Getting Up to Speed Part 1 </li></ul><ul><li>Getting Up to Speed Part 2 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Unit-Specific Resources </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Medication Sheets </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>PDF Documents </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Flash Tutorials </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Searching the Patient Education Catalog </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Beyond Our Walls </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Evaluation & Post-Test </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Additional Resources </li></ul>
  12. 12. : Getting Up To Speed Part 2 As you can see by browsing through the Diabetes Resource page, there’s so much information that it’s hard to take it all in! For purposes of this tutorial, we’re looking at smaller areas – although since you’ve opened that page in another browser, you can easily see where it came from on the page. Here’s part of the Diabetes Center manual for use by anyone with access. These are documents that have been saved as PDF files. If you’re not familiar with that term, PDF stands for Portable Document Format. It’s just a way for you to be able to easily print out high-quality copies of information formatted exactly like the original manual. Printing PDF documents is just a little different. Instead of using the usual print icon, you use one from the separate PDF window that opens up just inside the regular one. Go ahead and open a PDF document. Take a look at some of the different icons. <ul><li>Tutorial Modules </li></ul><ul><li>Getting Up to Speed Part 1 </li></ul><ul><li>Getting Up to Speed Part 2 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Unit-Specific Resources </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Medication Sheets </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>PDF Documents </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Flash Tutorials </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Searching the Patient Education Catalog </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Beyond Our Walls </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Evaluation & Post-Test </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Additional Resources </li></ul>
  13. 13. : Getting Up To Speed Part 2 Go ahead and open up one of the Diabetes Manual PDF documents . If you’re not familiar with the PDF format for documents, take the time to look at the special toolbar and features available in this format. For this tutorial, we’re just going to look at a few features – printing, changing the text size, and moving from page to page. For more information, and a PDF tutorial, you might want to follow the link provided at the end of this tutorial. Notice that after you open a PDF document, you now have two different toolbars? There’s the regular Windows one, but now there are special ones just for handling PDF’s. As you’ll see, they can help you move around within the document, print it, and make it easier to read for your patients. <ul><li>Tutorial Modules </li></ul><ul><li>Getting Up to Speed Part 1 </li></ul><ul><li>Getting Up to Speed Part 2 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Unit-Specific Resources </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Medication Sheets </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>PDF Documents </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Flash Tutorials </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Searching the Patient Education Catalog </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Beyond Our Walls </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Evaluation & Post-Test </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Additional Resources </li></ul>
  14. 14. : Getting Up To Speed Part 2 Moving Around in a PDF Document The first important tool is not at the top, but at the bottom of the PDF document. The arrows help you to get from page to page. Clicking on the single blue arrows will move you one page forward or backward in the document. Those other arrows (indicated by the red circles) will take you to either the very beginning or the very last page of the document. Take a minute to move through the document and back. Enlarging or Shrinking the Text Look for this set of tools at the top of the PDF screen. For patients with vision problems, this is an ideal way to enhance their ability to access patient education materials. Notice the small – and + signs. Clicking on these will shrink or enlarge the text every time you click! Go ahead and try this , and notice that when you do, the percentage changes to let you know what you’re looking at. Printing a PDF Document PDF documents use a different print icon than the usual Windows print icon, and you’ll find it on the top toolbar, to the left. When you click on this, you’ll get a pop-up print command box that should look familiar to you. Go ahead and select the printer icon . Notice that you can choose to print only one page if you want, but the default is to print the entire document.

  15. 15. : Getting Up To Speed Part 2 Flash Tutorials are a wonderful way to help your patient learn about a condition or treatment. Please click on this link to open a tutorial, then select instructions to take a tour of some of the features. You’ll notice that there’s both sound and action! After going through the instructions, take the time to view the tutorial by clicking on the start module button. When you’re done, close the browser window and return here. Use your pointing stick to select the buttons, then click the left pointing stick (just as you’d click your left mouse button) to activate your choice. Pointing stick Left and right pointing sticks Note: the first time you log in, you may be prompted to enter an ID and password. If you are, ask your nurse educator. <ul><li>Tutorial Modules </li></ul><ul><li>Getting Up to Speed Part 1 </li></ul><ul><li>Getting Up to Speed Part 2 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Unit-Specific Resources </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Medication Sheets </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>PDF Documents </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Flash Tutorials </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Searching the Patient Education Catalog </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Beyond Our Walls </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Evaluation & Post-Test </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Additional Resources </li></ul>
  16. 16. : Getting Up To Speed Part 2 <ul><li>Using the Flash Tutorials in Patient Education </li></ul><ul><li>We think you’ll see that these tutorials are clear and easy to use.

We’ve chosen MicroMedex for its valuable, current, and comprehensive information. Units included in the Partnering for Patient Education initiative have selected frequently-prescribed medications for patients in their areas of care. Patient education information about these ‘top meds’ is linked from your unit’s page. An example of this is the listing here for 3700, to the right. Now’s a good time to take a look: Click on Home (at the bottom left of this page) to open the main page in another browser window. Find your own unit’s page, then look for a list of the most common medications. You’ll probably be asked for an ID and password. If you don’t know it, look on the AV cart for the Tablet PC, or ask your unit’s nurse educator. MicroMedex has information for thousands of medications – frequently in Spanish, and at several levels of literacy to meet the needs of your patients. Check the MicroMedex tutorial (available through the link provided under Additional Resources) or call your Medical Library for help at (309) 655-3405. Commonly Prescribed Medications for 3700
  18. 18. : Getting Up To Speed Part 2 Searching the Patient Education Catalog Clicking on Search the Patient Education Catalog will take you directly to the OSF Saint Francis Medical Library Catalog. In fact, it takes you straight to a special part of the catolog, so that when you search there for resources, you’re only searching the Patient Education Database. We’ve worked to make this as fast and efficient as possible. Try it now – go ahead and click on the link on the right side of this page. The catalog should open up in a separate browser window. Tip: The patient education catalog contains links to every resource listed on the Partnering for Patient Education unit pages. <ul><li>Tutorial Modules </li></ul><ul><li>Getting Up to Speed Part 1 </li></ul><ul><li>Getting Up to Speed Part 2 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Unit-Specific Resources </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>PDF Documents </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Flash Tutorials </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Medication Sheets </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Searching the Patient Education Catalog </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Beyond Our Walls </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Evaluation & Post-Test </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Additional Resources </li></ul>
