Design Domicile Showcase

  1. 1. Medical Spanish<br />Project Showcase<br />April 22, 2010<br />
  2. 2. Background<br />Our Client<br />University of Tennessee Health Science Center College of Medicine<br />Dr. Bill Brescia and a six person committee comprised of medical students<br />
  3. 3. Background<br />The Problem<br />The Hispanic population is the fastest growing group of people in the nation. <br />There are approximately 19,300 Hispanic Memphis residents. <br />In order to adequately provide healthcare to the patient population, the number of Spanish-speaking physicians must increase at a paralleled rate.<br />Currently, the University of Tennessee offers no form of medical Spanish education to students in the College of Medicine. <br />
  4. 4. Background<br />Our Task<br />To design and develop a course to address the<br />issues faced by UTHSC medical students when<br />they encounter Spanish-speaking patients in a <br />clinical setting. <br />
  5. 5. Background<br />The goals included:<br /><ul><li>cutting down on time for each patient visit,
  6. 6. establishing patient-doctor trust, and
  7. 7. minimizing harm to patients due to language barriers.</li></li></ul><li>Solution<br />To meet these goals and solve the problem <br />presented by UTHSC, the educational goal for <br />our course became:<br />To communicate conversationally with Spanish <br />speaking patients in a clinical setting.<br />
  8. 8. Solution<br />To achieve this goal, we would provide the <br />UTHSC medical students with an asynchronous, <br />Web-based curriculum to learn Spanish for a <br />clinical setting. <br />
  9. 9. Product Demonstration<br />
  10. 10. Product Reception<br />“You organized the content in a manner that has improved upon the original flow of the material.”<br />“The sequence flows very well. Learner interaction is good.”<br />One-to-one evaluators felt confident that they would be successful learning the content in this course.<br />They also found the layout and design to be easy to follow and uncluttered.<br />“The illustrations were very helpful, as well as the audio buttons for the words that were difficult to pronounce.”<br />“The course seemed great.  It was easy to follow.”<br />
  11. 11. Changes Made<br />Added missing sound files<br />Before<br />After<br />
  12. 12. Product Reception<br />Added navigation option<br />Before<br />After<br />
  13. 13. Product Reception<br />Added more audio questions<br />Before<br />After<br />
  14. 14. Lessons Learned<br />SCORM compliance isn’t always reliable<br />Collaboration software such as Google Docs allows for time savings and flexibility<br />Rapid Prototyping is a huge time saver<br />
