Abstract

To support the learning process, it is essential to conduct a needs analysis to identify appropriate instructional materials that fit the learners’ characteristics and learning environment. This study aimed to identify the need for developing a MOOC module on risk communication in global health emergencies to use as a teaching tool for continuing nursing education programmes. Following the principles of a qualitative research design, a total of 14 participants, including two nursing lecturers from Kulliyyah of Nursing, International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM), two nurse managers (matrons), two emergency physicians, and eight registered nurses (RN) from SASMEC @ IIUM, were selected through purposive sampling method and interviewed using semi-structured interview-guided questions. The interview data were analysed using thematic analysis. The participants stated that continuing nursing education (CNE) was essential for professional development (PD) and a resource for enhancing existing skills and knowledge. Risk communication skills were crucial for nurses in emergency healthcare contexts. The majority of this study’s participants were unfamiliar with MOOC courses and stated that support and motivation from their institution, as well as monitoring of participation and course completion, were needed to implement MOOC courses successfully. To sum up, understanding of continuing education, current risk communication knowledge and literacy, and awareness of MOOCs were explored. These realities will support the development of the risk communication MOOC module that will help improve nurses’ risk communication skills and better prepare them for future global health emergencies.
