Abstract

This article briefly describes the development and evaluation of six computer assisted learning (CAL) packages for use with renal patients on Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD). The factors influencing the choice of CAL as the teaching medium are detailed, and some of the difficulties facing nurses involved in patient education highlighted. An outline of the development of program content is given and the methods to be used in the evaluation are briefly explored. Since data collection has only recently commenced, no conclusions can be drawn. However, the authors' anticipation that the study may help to make inroads into exploring the acceptability of CAL to patients and patient educators is expressed.
