Poor HIV knowledge is associated with discrimination towards people living with HIV (PLWH). The increasing prevalence of HIV in the over 50’s means more registered nurses (RNs) will be caring for this client group. Therefore knowledge improvement is crucial to ensure non-discriminatory care. HIV educational interventions have been successful in improving RNs’ knowledge, however, recommendations suggest an innovative delivery method is needed for post-registration HIV education. E-learning is valued for its flexibility and accessibility, however is portrayed as time consuming. Reusable Learning Objects (RLOs) are short, multimedia, interactive educational tools, which may overcome this. There is minimal evidence RLOs can increase RNs’ knowledge therefore the aim of this dissertation was to investigate a RLOs ability to improve RNs’ HIV knowledge.
