ICT and Learning Usability at Work

Abstract : The medical profession demands training and lifelong learning to ensure patient safety and quality of treatment. Main barriers are lack of time and resources. Information and communication technology (ICT) has proven to be useful to support e-learning, but less focus has been placed on the potential role of ICT as support for continuous learning in everyday practice. The aim of this qualitative interview study was to explore physicians’ perspective of learning and how ICT in various ways can support learning at work. The findings indicate that continuous learning to a large extent is case driven, and that ICT may play an important role and support reflection and learning for individual physicians and for the collective as well. We argue that such ICT solutions must be adopted to and integrated in the everyday work, save time and include learning usability.
