Abstract

We designed our pilot study to investigate the effectiveness of computer-assisted anti-stigma interventions among medical students. Convenience sample of 51 consecutive students was evaluated before and after using the Anti-Stigma CO-ED system. After studying the computer program the level of stigma in the group significantly decreased (p<0.02). We concluded that computer-assisted education could be effective in reducing psychiatric stigma among medical students.
