Lead a group study

Group studies are an invaluable way to reinforce learning and for nurses to share their knowledge. The March of Dimes encourages nurses to use group studies to improve their care of women and babies and, ultimately, improve outcomes.

Print module group study

  1. Purchase a module for each nurse, or provide a module that nurses can share.
    Print modules are $30 each; call (800) 367-6630 or order from our online catalog. Discounts are available on bulk orders; call (914) 997-4269 for more information. Use print modules as part of a lending library or for group studies.

  2. Prepare for group study.
    1. Arrange a time and location for the group study.
    2. Remind participants to read the module before the group study so they are familiar with the content.

  3. Lead the group study.

    Facilitate discussion on module content as well as the Clinical Application and Group Discussion items.

    Participants can follow the instructions for individual users of print modules to take their tests and get their certificates of completion.
