Optimizing Physicians' Instruction of PACS Through E-Learning: Cognitive Load Theory Applied

PIETER DEVOLDER UGent, Bram Pynoo UGent, TONY VOET UGent, LUC ADANG UGent, JAN VERCRUYSSE UGent and Philippe Duyck UGent (2009) Journal of Digital Imaging. 22(1). p.25-33
abstract
This article outlines the strategy used by our hospital to maximize the knowledge transfer to referring physicians on using a picture archiving and communication system (PACS). We developed an e-learning platform underpinned by the cognitive load theory (CLT) so that in depth knowledge of PACS’ abilities becomes attainable regardless of the user’s prior experience with computers. The application of the techniques proposed by CLT optimizes the learning of the new actions necessary to obtain and manipulate radiological images. The application of cognitive load reducing techniques is explained with several examples. We discuss the need to safeguard the physicians’ main mental processes to keep the patient’s interests in focus. A holistic adoption of CLT techniques both in teaching and in configuration of information systems could be adopted to attain this goal. An overview of the advantages of this instruction method is given both on the individual and organizational level.
