About

The COVID-19 vaccine by BioNTech requires specific, delicate storage and dilution procedures to be stringently followed for safety and effectiveness. Training should be completed prior to undertaking dilution procedures. Currently, the nursing and pharmacy curricula do not have content on specialized vaccine reconstitution techniques. E-learning has become an essential component of teaching and learning due to COVID. Yet, optimal online learning module development for clinical procedural skill acquisition and appropriate online formative assessment has not been adequately explored. To bridge this training gap for Hong Kong nurses and pharmacists, this project aims to develop a video-based online learning programme, coupled to a randomized controlled study to determine the effectiveness of online vaccine reconstitution training. The module, a supplement to the current teaching curriculum, will train students from both Nursing and Pharmacy disciplines. Outcome measures include formative assessment of student performance, which can be used to inform the design and content of experiential content in healthcare professional curriculums. If this learning platform is shown to be effective, the scope could be extended to other disciplines (not limited to healthcare) where learning complex procedural tasks are necessary for the absence of instructor-led teaching.
