J.L. Monroy Anton, J.V. Izquierdo Soriano, F. Buendia Garcia

La Ribera Universitary Hospital (SPAIN)
Introduction
La Ribera Universitary Hospital is an accredited teaching hospital with people in different levels of formation: medicine and nursing, health students, residents, health technicians… . The Radiation Oncology Department is involved in formative activities of these groups, with presential courses and seminars. This year we proposed an e-learning course about radiation toxicity, open to the workers and students of the hospital. This course was developed through Campus Ribera, an online platform created in our institution for this online courses implementation.

Objective
Main objective was to develop an online training course on Toxicity of Radiation Oncology treatments for hospital personnel. Other objectives were to describe the level of use and satisfaction as well as personal knowledge of online training for hospital personnel.

Material and Methods
The course was created for a maximum of 10 students, workers or students of the hospital for 30 days duration. This offer was covered by 80%, resulting 8 students in the final course. Teaching was made by one tutor. The acreditated number of teaching hours were 10 h.
Course structure was: Theoretical and Practical Files; Forums; Evaluation. Five themes were independent exposed with theoretical documents and practical exercises. Forums were ideated to ask questions, solve technical difficulties, adding web or articles references.
To assess the use of the platform we recorded: the number of course views, the number of visits to resources and the number of shares held in the forums.
To determine the degree of satisfaction with the training participants we consulted about: Objectives and contents, Methodology, Teacher rating, Organization and Integration practice, and assessments allowed between 0 and 5 points.
To get the final certification of the course it was necessary to fill 80% of practical exercises. In addition, all students must pass a final evaluation consisting of an exercise test with multiple answers

Results
The use of the platform was high, with a total number of course views of 949 records (average of 118,63 and standard deviation of 29,92). The resources were visited by students in a total number of 352 (average of 44 and standard deviation of 15).The number of shares held in the forums was 935 (average of 116,88 and 35,10 deviation typical).
There were an analysis of satisfaction with the activity. The teacher valuation was high with an average of 4,25 points on 5. The assessment of the methodology was valuated with 3,6; objectives and content 3,75; practice inserting 4, and organization 3,875.
All the students completed the hours of course and the practical exercises. The results of test evaluation were ranged between 7-9 (of a total 10), with mean of 7.67. All students (100%) get final certification of the course.

Conclusions
- The implementation of online training courses presented as the potential advantages of self-study and training to choose those elements best suited to each student profile.
- Actual hours of training significantly exceeded the theoretically raised, and it was possible to connect at any time of day. The dedication of several periods of time results in an accumulation of hours more than the originally estimated.
- Online formation requires continuous informatics support, with quick resolution of platform problems, and solve the students
