Abstract

Background: Teaching–learning experience involving more than one health care discipline is a topic of great interest in the health sciences. Few such experiences are known in which medical students taught nursing students a clinical skill. Method: The authors evaluated the effect of fourth-year medical students teaching the correct use of a metered-dose inhaler (MDI) to bachelor of science nursing (BSN) students. An fourth-year medical student investigator taught BSN students the correct use of an MDI in individual, private educational sessions, approximately 10 minutes in length, in a large health sciences center. BSN students were scored in use of MDI preeducation and posteducation. Instruction included both discussion and demonstration by the M4S. Results: Among 20 BSN students, posteducation scores were markedly improved for total steps (p <. 0001), and six of nine individual steps for MDI use. Conclusion: Brief teaching–learning sessions are effective in teaching nursing students the correct use of MDI.
