Project: Research project

Project Details



This application proposes a multidisciplinary approach to curriculum
development and teaching. Educational initiatives will be targeted at
medical and nursing students, residents, fellows, faculty, and physicians in
practice. Sleep medicine education will be introduced or expanded in
required curricula. A master syllabus in sleep medicine will be universally
accessible via the "Virtual Hospital" and augmented by interactive
case-based studies and real-life patient videos. Outreach will be
facilitated through the use of telemedicine, utilizing the statewide
fiberoptic Iowa Communications Network and the National Laboratory for Rural
Telemedicine. A Sleep Update Newsletter, describing recent developments and
scheduling of educational events, will be directed at target groups.
Community education will be facilitated by radio, TV, and the Iowa
Communications Network. Faculty development of the principal investigator
(PI) and co-investigators will include attending educational programs,
increasing expertise in sleep medicine, medical education and telemedicine,
and strengthening teaching and evaluation skills. An Advisory Committee
will facilitate the conduct of the program. The PI and an educational
consultant will evaluate each part of the project and the project as a
whole. A needs assessment and formative and summative evaluation will be
carried out.
