Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of using a self-learning module (SLM) to teach nurses about caring for hospitalized children with tracheostomies. Data analysis using an independent samples t test showed that statistically significant learning occurred after completion of the SLM (p = 0.014, n = 85). These findings can influence the way staff education is provided, giving the nurse educator an alternative, cost-effective, and timesaving method of presenting information.
