Paul L. Price, Mark A. Malesker, Alice B. Smith, W. Wayne Young, Creighton University

Background: A CommunityZero website (CZW) was designed to facilitate and enhance the clinical rotation experience both for the preceptor and the student. Fourth-year students are asked to login to the site on a daily basis and post reflections (blog) of their learning experience, participate in posted discussions, and keep up to date with the rotation calendar. Other pertinent information found on the website includes practice-related links and news items. Objective: The object of this study was to assess the utility and ease of use of a CZW at two clinical rotation sites. The results obtained from the survey will be used to promote further research with the School of Pharmacy and Health Professions at Creighton University. Methods: Clerkship students are asked to evaluate the discussion, calendar and daily notes (reflections) areas of the CZW in electronic survey format utilizing the WebSurveyor software product. The survey will also measure the overall technical ease of use with the CZW and the ability to foster communication from the student perspective. Results: This is currently a work in progress. Implications: Faculty and rotation students often cannot spend the entire day together. Furthermore, multiple rounding teams and scheduling conflicts contribute to the lack of communication between rotation students and faculty. The effectiveness of the CZW with its active learning and interactive communication components as an addition to traditional clinical rotation teaching methods needs to be more thoroughly evaluated
