Development of an Interactive Web-based Teaching Tool for in Vitro Fertilization (IVF) Patients
Development of an Interactive Web-based Teaching Tool for IVF Patients

The purpose of this study is to evaluate an interactive web-based teaching tool in IVF patients. Patients will be randomized to participate in web-based IVF teaching or a didactic lecture. A knowledge questionnaire will be completed both prior to and following the teaching intervention. Both groups will also complete stress and satisfaction surveys throughout the IVF treatment cycle. Groups will be compared at the completion of the study for demographics, level of knowledge, stress and satisfaction. The web-based group will be evaluated for web usage.

  • Other: Knowledge Questionnaire
    Administered before and after teaching intervention
  • Other: Perceived Stress Scale

  • Other: Satisfaction questionnaire

  • Other: Didactic lecture
    Didactic lecture
  • Experimental: Web-based Teaching Group
    Patients randomized to the intervention group will receive a unique login and password to a link on the Ottawa Fertility Centre website. This will allow them access to a secure site containing required teaching modules. They will then complete an interactive teaching tool that contains the same educational content as the traditional presentation. Patients will be able to access a module that is specific to their stimulation protocol. The teaching tool does not need to be completed all at one time. Once completed, the information can still be accessed as many times as required.
    Interventions:
    • Other: Knowledge Questionnaire
    • Other: Perceived Stress Scale
    • Other: Satisfaction questionnaire
    • Other: Web-based IVF teaching
  • Active Comparator: Control group
    Participants randomized to the control arm of the study will participate in a traditional didactic teaching session. This session will be carried out by the nurse educator. This session will be attended by up to 10 other couples that may or may not be participating in the study. The nurse educator administering the session will not know which couples are participating in the study. Slides shown and information conveyed will be the same as that provided to the web-based group, however all three stimulation protocols will be presented to the participants regardless of their actual treatment protocol.
    Interventions:
    • Other: Knowledge Questionnaire

    • Other: Didactic lecture
