Multimedia web-based courseware in intellectual and developmental disabilities nursing: from concept to development
Nurses play a vital role in the health care of all people, but nurses report receiving little education in nursing school or as continuing education about the care of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). Teaching methodologies that make use of computers and the Internet are being used increasingly in nursing education as a means of developing and distributing nursing education. This paper reviews development of a curriculum for nurses that began as a paper outline and evolved into multimedia, Web-based courseware that teaches about the nursing care of people with IDD.
