Abstract

Clinical educators are continually looking at ways to effectively deliver large amounts of information to their learners. Whether as a part of pre-course work or as a separate phase of training, there are numerous benefits to making information available to learners before conducting sessions that allow the learners to practice the skills. Hybrid courses consist of a mixture of online and on-site instruction and offer a viable option for clinical educators to consider, especially when their intended audience consists of thousands of learners. This article describes the experiences of a medical simulation center and the use of a hybrid curriculum technique to reduce central line infections.
