Abstract:Nurses in home care are expected to be self-directed in their learning to cope with their complex working profession. However, not all healthcare professionals manage to direct their own learning. Regulatory readiness evolved from self-directed learning (SDL) and consists of SDL-strategies that are conditional for successful engagement in the SDL process. Therefore, support must be provided to nurses on the SDL-strategies of regulatory readiness, for which online micro-interventions that use prompting seem to be an effective way. This study identified the effect of an online micro-intervention using prompting on the regulatory readiness at the workplace of nurses working in home care. In a multiple baseline design across individuals, nurses’ (N = 6) regulatory readiness before, and during the intervention was measured on a daily basis. In addition, a pre-and post-test were conducted before and at the end of the study. The results showed differences in favour of the online micro-intervention on the SDL-strategies of regulatory readiness. However, these differences were not large enough to say with confidence that this was due to the online micro-intervention. However, the positive differences are promising and therefore call for more research on the development of interventions that support SDL at the workplace.
