Using an eLearning Module to Facilitate Sepsis Knowledge Acquisition Across Multiple Institutions and Learner Disciplines
The objective of this multicenter study was to assess knowledge acquisition and retention for pediatric sepsis across multiple health care provider roles, using an adaptive and interactive eLearning module.

Immediate knowledge gain was meaningful as indicated by effect sizes, although by the time of the delayed test, the effect was smaller. This module fills an important gap in currently available pediatric sepsis education. (Source: Current Awareness Service for Health (CASH))
