Abstract

A quasiexperimental study was conducted to demonstrate which teaching modality, peer education or computer-based education, improves the utilization of the library electronic databases and thereby evidence-based knowledge at the point of care. No significant differences were found between the teaching modalities. However, the study identified the need to explore professional development teaching modalities outside the traditional classroom to support an evidence-based practice healthcare environment.
