Title: Effect of a Web-Based Research Dissemination Project on Clinician Practice Patterns
Author: Cohen, Laura ; Sprigle, Stephen
Abstract: Keeping up with the rapid pace of change in the healthcare system and the development of technology has dictated that clinicians learn about ways to improve quality of care over the course of their careers. Yet there has been little study of the association between the process of rehabilitation education and quality care. This poster describes the effect of a web-based training (WBT) program on clinician knowledge of manual wheelchair technology, and attitudes towards practice for professionals recommending seating and wheeled mobility equipment. WBT resulted in positive changes in Knowledge over time. Attitude changes improved in the domains of Independence and Leadership. Overall, evidence suggests that WBT has utility as a knowledge transfer mechanism.
