Good introduction to the MAR & Orders; the roles of the physician, pharmacist, & nursing staff in medication administration; and the use of dimensional analysis for medication dosing. The tutorial takes about 45 minutes to complete. I hope to be able to continue to improve and expand the tutorial. Probable next steps: add additional MAR formats, include IV push medications using a syringe which users can manipulate to draw up the correct dose, include IV fluids both continuous infusions and intermittent infusions using a pump which can be programmed with rate & volume to be infused, add problems for students to practice dosing where the student drags the relevant information into the equation from the MAR & medication package, include quizzes with feedback, add activity to teach appropriate delivery device for medication emphasizing IV vs oral medications.
