BackgroundThe limited availability of pediatric rheumatologists for teaching in pediatric residency programs negatively impacts resident education about rheumatology. At present, there are no educational websites available for trainees to learn about pediatric rheumatology. We are planning to develop an interactive web-based teaching module to improve resident learning about rheumatology -POINTER-: Pediatric Online INteractive TEaching in Rheumatology. The aim of this study was to perform a needs assessment of pediatric residents who will be using POINTER.

MethodsPediatric residents n = 60 at The Hospital for Sick Children were emailed an online survey. This was designed to assess prior use of online teaching modules, the utility of an online teaching module for rheumatology and which technologies should be included on such a site.

ResultsForty-seven residents participated in the survey 78.3% response rate. Ninety-one percent of the respondents thought that an interactive teaching website would enhance their learning and should include case-based teaching modules. Several web-based technologies were felt to be important for inclusion on the teaching modules. These included graphics and animation 86.4%, interactivity 93.2%, pictures 100%, live digital videos 88.9% and links to articles and research 88.6%.

ConclusionsAn interactive web-based rheumatology teaching module would be well utilized by pediatric residents. Residents showed preference for case-based teaching modules as well as multimedia modalities for learning a detailed musculoskeletal examination.
