Braden scale score [ Time Frame: up to 24 weeks ]
Both subscale and total sum on five patient cases are collected using Braden scale at baseline (right before and right after the intervention) to see if the intervention is giving a change in the score. At 12 weeks and 24 weeks to see if the knowledge remains.

Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Evaluation of an E-learning Program for Assessing Pressure Ulcer Risk and Pressure Ulcer Classification - a Pilot Study
Official Title  ICMJE Randomized Controlled Trial to Evaluate the Effect of E-learning on Nurses Ability to Assess Patient Risk for Pressure Ulcers and Pressure Ulcer Classification
Brief Summary The purpose of this study is to determine wether e-learning is a more effective than traditional classroom teaching at norwegian nurses ability to use the Braden risk assessment scale and pressure ulcer classification.
Detailed Description

Most pressure ulcers (PU)can be prevented and assessment of the patient skin and risk factors for pressure ulcers is the first step. Epidemiological studies are also an important element in the prevention of PU and requires consistent registration based on standardized definitions and tools. Staff knowledge is critical in this work. However showed a Norwegian pilot study on the prevalence of PU deficient knowledge among nursing staff in terms reliable classification of PU and PU-assessment of risk. The pilot study showed the need for training to reduce the incidence of pressure ulcers and to ensure data quality in future studies.

E-learning is an alternative to traditional courses and will help to streamline and standardize training by allowing a larger number of personnel be reached with this method of training. It is not designed Norwegian e-learning program that addresses the use of risk assessment instrument or classification of PU. We have developed one program to train personnel in the PU-classification and risk assessment and plan to evaluate this. The program will be an important contribution to the PU-prevention as well as the program will be used in the execution of a multicenter prevalence study of PU-prevalence.

Nurses will randomly assign to a lecture, e-learning or to a control group. The lecture and e-learning are based on the same content. The nurses will score five patient cases with braden scale before and after intervention and 20 pictures of pressure ulcers in different categories before and 40 after intervention. The control group will only do a pretest.
