Abstract

Multimedia is an educational method in medical training. There is little evidence which instructional techniques and media are of advantage to impart knowledge more effectively and lead to better application of knowledge in the operation room. Objective: 1- The designing Multi-media Learning Software (MLS) 2- The effects of Multi-media Learning Software on knowledge, attitude and practice in surgical technology students in Kashan University of Medical Sciences. Method: This was a quasi -experimental study. At the first stage the information was collected for designing the software and then the software was made. After that the students filled the demographic data and pre-test questionnaire out. The software was trained to 60 surgical technology students who were sophomore and senior by second researcher at eight two-hour sessions. At the end of each session the researcher answered to questions of the students about learning in that session. One week after the last session, posttest with the same questions was given. Data were analyzed by statistical t-test and ANOVA. Results: The results showed, there are significant differences in practice (p=0.03), knowledge (p=0.01) and attitude (p=0.04) ranges after educating the software. Tukey-test showed, the significant difference in knowledge range is p=0.012.Conclusion: Multi-media Learning Software can improve knowledge, attitude and practice levels about techniques and instruments surgery.
