Evaluating the impact of information skills training on health professionals: looking beyond satisfaction - Michael Raynor & Jenny Craven

  1. 1. Evaluating the impact of information skills training on health professionals: looking beyond satisfaction
  2. 2. About NICE NICE and NICE Evidence Evidence – guidance – shared learning
  3. 3. IST Project Objectives
  4. 4. The Project Methods
  5. 5. Analysis of data Can you structure the following question in a PICO format?   Excellent (3 pts): Can explain the structure of PICO AND  can correctly identify the terms that reflect it.   Strong (2 pts): Can partly explain 2 or 3 elements of the  structure of PICO AND identify terms that reflect this.   Limited (1 pt): Can only explain 1element of the PICO  structure AND can identify the term that reflects this. May  need some prompting to answer this question.   Not evident (0 pts): Cannot answer the question. No  understanding of PICO
  6. 6. Results – has learning taken place? • Sample represents 85% of all those attending the two courses Has learning taken place? Average pre- training score (SD) Average post- training score (SD) Difference 3.6 (+/-2.0) 6.3 (+/-1.0) +2.7 (+/-2.5), p=0.016 (95%CI)
  7. 7. Results – how is learning used? New skills and knowledge “I do feel more confident in carrying out quick searches and I’m not so scared to have a go now.” Finding information “…now we can go to X, Y, or Z rather than going to the manufacturer and potentially asking what is seen as a stupid question, from their perspective.” Supporting people “I actually understand it now, while previously I didn’t really have a clue. So it’s really helpful in that sense, just to have a better idea of what the Information Specialists are doing.”
  8. 8. Conclusions
  9. 9. Limitations
