Abstract

The educator is a key person during the implementation of a new healthcare computer system or a new software program. Computers require teamwork across departmental lines and flexibility in instructional approach. The authors share their experiences as educators at the San Francisco VA during the initiation of several new computer software packages. They examine the issues involved in this type of training and share the lessons learned.
