Abstract

Antibiotic resistance is a growing threat to our current ways of treating infections. The overuse of antibiotics is a major contributor to this threat, especially with the prevalence of unnecessary prescriptions written for upper respiratory infections (URIs). Better education tools are needed for providers and patients regarding antibiotic resistance. The purpose of this project was to use evidence-based practice to produce an educational video about antibiotic resistance. Following a review of the literature, a 6-minute video was made using Mayer’s cognitive theory of multimedia learning. A convenience sample of 15 family nurse practitioner (FNP) students, from one master’s program, participated in a pre/post feasibility survey to assess knowledge, rate video aesthetics, and evaluate the video as an educational tool. Following the video, FNP students reported an increase in knowledge and that the video was informative. In conclusion, this project’s goal was to help educate nurse practitioners by creating a video that could be easily disseminated and viewed. Use of videos such as this may increase antibiotic stewardship among practicing NPs and help fuel future projects and educational tools.
