Independent learning: a self-instructional videotape approach in psychiatry.


In response to the increased need to train well-rounded general practitioners within a limited time schedule, the teaching staff developed a self-instructional videotape programme devoted to suicide assessment. This tape, if successful, was to serve as a pilot for a full series of 18 tapes devoted to the assessment and treatment of normally stable patients suffering acute situational stress. In order to avoid the passivity induced by most educational tapes and films, a self-instructional format was adapted to the videotape medium and extensively tested. Students in the experimental group scored significantly higher on three of four measures of effectiveness than did the control group. Students and teachers both strongly supported the production of tapes using a similar format.
