dc.description.abstract The peergroup was involved in the development as well as in the pilot testing of these learning packages en_US
dc.description.abstract For the final testing of the learning packages, an experimental design was utilized. Volunteer registered nurses were asked to participate after which they were divided into any of four groups according to the Solomon Four Group Design. Two of these groups were the experimental groups and two groups the control groups. The experimental groups received the learning packages to study and after ten (10) weeks all four groups were tested and the results analysed en_US
dc.description.abstract The results indicated that the two groups who received the learning packages (the experimental groups) did significantly better than the two groups who did not receive the learning packages (the control groups) en_US
dc.description.abstract The experimental groups also evaluated the learning packages. They agreed upon the content and the importance of the learning packages. They, however, recommended some changes with regard to more support methods, more reading material and a longer time span en_US
dc.description.abstract A final component of the study was the evaluation of the experimental groups at their place of work by co-ordinators or specially appointed persons. This evaluation indicated that there is a need for such learning packages and that the content was relevant. The evaluators also felt that there was an enhancement in the participants in their knowledge level, but that their psychomotor performance could have shown improvement. Recommendations, based on the findings of the study were made. These recommendations were addressed: issues such as continuing education, accreditation, motivation for enrolment, support for students, methods to maintain skills in low-census and low-activity environments, methods to minimize professional isolation. Finally ways were discussed to help with technological support en_US
