  Purpose

The overall aims of this project are to develop such an e-learning alternative for the CAMS program, determine its effectiveness relative to in-person CAMS training, and assess factors that may relate to adoption and implementation of CAMS in general and specifically through e-learning and in-person modalities. At a more theoretical level, the study also aims to provide information about the effectiveness and feasibility of e-learning as a pedagogical tool that can contribute to effective strategies for continuing medical education on this and other topics of importance to the VA. If the e-learning approach proves effective, the study investigators have a plan for ready dissemination to other VISNs.
