12 Jan Practices look for effective platforms for ongoing education
RX Vantage offered some insights recently into how physicians and practices may more easily complete their continuing education credits. While the responsibility for doing so generally falls to individuals practitioners, the publication argues that organizations would better serve themselves as well as their workforce by helping to provide continuing education opportunities to physicians and their staff. Simply put: the current system doesn’t have to be so hard, nor so time consuming.
As RX Vantage notes, practice members need continuing education to “keep your practice at the forefront of medical innovations, increase the quality of care you are providing patients, and improve job satisfaction among employees.” Some of RX Vantage’s suggestions include asking for physician and staff input (mentioning that yearly evaluations are a great time to do so), anticipating transitions and providing training in advance of those changes, leveraging existing resources such as lunches with life science reps, and focusing on practice goals.
One resource they don’t mention, however, is an educational resource such as CardioVisual, which also offers many of the education solutions offered here in one simple mobile platform, for clinicians as well as their patients. We also regularly add expert videos for continuing education and new developments in the field so HCPs can keep up with new treatments and devices.The CardioVisual QnA forum also allows HCPs to engage with one another to discuss complex cardiovascular conditions. This is a great way to connect with others in the field and continue education through professional discussion.
