Abstract or Artist's Statement

Each year incoming residents are provided a “Resident Handbook” that provides information to be used in navigation of rotations included in the Family Medicine curriculum. The information provided includes but is not limited to common treatments, order sets and contact information for faculty. This printed document is not always immediately available due the size of the book and can be cumbersome to find specific information, having to flip through multiple pages. The objective of this study was to determine if an electronic version of this document would be more functional and therefore more useful tool for Bristol Family Medicine Residents. The target population included current and incoming Family Medicine residents at Bristol. Participants were asked to participate in the study in person or by email and completed a questionnaire regarding the current use of the handbook in question. After the questionnaire was administered the participants attended an educational session where they received training on how to access the electronic version on their preferred mobile as well as the use of the electronic version of the handbook. A second questionnaire was administered after 3 months using the electronic version. Analysis indicated that residents used the electronic version more frequently and found the access easier.
