Abstract

A program to provide health care workers instruction in acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) infection control was developed to run on IBM microcomputers. This program can be used by individuals with no computer experience. It was assessed by medical resident physicians who were randomized into a control and an experimental group. A 48-item true-false test on AIDS knowledge was administered to both groups. The experimental group completed a questionnaire on their views of CAI. The mean knowledge score for the control group (n = 33) was 35.9 (SD = 3.9), whereas the mean knowledge score for the experimental group (n = 24) was 42.4 (SD = 4.6), a statistically significant difference (p
