Use of Nutrition and Physical Activity Modules to Promote Continuing Professional Development: A Pilot Test
Background: The authors developed five online modules about physical activity and nutrition. Methods: Registered nurses completed surveys before and after each module. Results: Evaluations showed an increase in knowledge and skill, but the psychometric parameters of the evaluation tool were poor. The low participation rate was associated with module length and technological difficulties. Conclusions: Given busy schedules of health professionals, online education approaches need to be feasible and be easy to access and use.
