Teaching psychomotor skills is labor intensive. This study examined effectiveness of traditional skills lab demonstration compared to use of deliberate perfect practice video (DPPV) training for students learning injection therapy.


Twenty students were randomly assigned to either a control (lecture plus tradition demonstration) or intervention (lecture plus DPPV) group. The control group practiced with 1: 4 faculty ratios. The intervention group practiced with video guidance and rated their satisfaction. Both groups performed a standard competency exam and rated self-confidence.


Competency exam scores for the intervention group were higher than the control group, but not statistically significant. Confidence increased in both groups.


Findings suggest self-learning using the DPPV technique provides equivalent outcomes when teaching skills in administering injections.
