As Facilitator, your role doesn’t end once the video ends. Here are some tips for making sure that the training sticks with the learners.
Watching videos is a passive learning task, although you’ve helped make it more active when you stopped the presentation and asked the learner to consider issues related to the video. To make the learning stick even more, the learner must take control of how he/she will implement changes and information seen in the video.
Some ways to do this include:
- Have the learner create a list of ways in which he/she can contribute to a safety culture.
- List ways that he/she can positively impact urinary catheter use in the ICU. (It becomes an even more powerful tool if the learner prints these reasons out and puts them somewhere that others in the ICU can see them.)
- Ask the learner to summarize the videos in a few sentences.
Before the learner leaves the training room, communicate that you and the learner are working together to reduce CAUTI in the facility. You are both change agents and the learner should feel free to come back to you with ideas for improving the training. Be sure that the learner knows you are open to ideas.
Remember, you can make a difference in CAUTI reduction and elimination.
