Atack, L., Bull, E., Dryden, T., et al. (2012). An Evaluation of Learner Perception of Competency and Satisfaction with Three Models of an Interdisciplinary Surge Capacity Course. (First page only.) Journal of Allied Health. 41(3):106-12.
The authors describe an online, workplace-based, interprofessional course in surge capacity building in which 72 health and allied staff from five acute care and community health care organizations participated. Surveys were used to assess self-reported improvements in learners' perceptions of their competency, their interprofessional skills, and satisfaction with the different course delivery options (online only; online plus a tabletop exercise; online plus a tabletop exercise and e-simulation). The authors contend that results demonstrate the effectiveness of online learning, particularly with the addition of a tabletop exercise.
