This study explored the viability of using Computer Aided Instruction (CAI) as an educational tool for promoting independent skin care among adults with SCI. The investigators compared and evaluated the following educational methods: lecture incorporating audio-visual aids; sporadic one-on-one instruction; textual materials; CAI incorporating two interactive multi-media modules. Learning was defined in terms of both cognitive (acquisition of concepts) and behavioral outcomes. The results are shown in graphical form.
