Abstract

CASSIANI, Silvia Helena De Bortoli et al. Development of a on-line course about administration of medication. Rev. esc. enferm. USP [online]. 2003, vol.37, n.3, pp. 44-53. ISSN 0080-6234.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0080-62342003000300006.

The study describes the development of an on-line course on medication administration. The World Wide Web Course Tools (WebCT) that was used is software that provides various tools for supervisors and access to a number of environments for students who have a password. The course material is presented in a series of websites which are sub-divided into eight illustrated topics concerning medication administration routes, in addition to questions for knowledge assessment. A sample of undergraduate students at the University of São Paulo at Ribeirão Preto College of Nursing has positively evaluated the course. It is now intended to be included as curricular course in the undergraduate program as an additional resource for student learning.

Keywords : Education, distance; Nursing; Drug administration routes.
