The current study examined the effects of an instructor-based and self-study training program on staffs' behavior of completing Protective Measure Critical Incident Reports (PMCIR).
Participants included in the study were 57 newly hired employees who were exposed to either an instructor led training or the same training presented in a self-study paper format. A written scenario was used to describe the events that would occur when a protective measure would be required. Results show higher levels of correct responding for the self-study group. Acceptability results show a slight preference for the self-study training. The self-study group also averaged less errors on post-test measures than the instructor led group.
