Leadership Series: Sick of Boring, Ineffective Infection Prevention Educational Webinars?
Recorded On: 05/11/2023
Education tactics for healthcare providers has evolved over the last few years with the increased use of technology and reduction of in person learning. Traditional education tactics included in-person all day trainings, skills fairs and in-services, all of which are effective education strategies but can be resource intensive and time consuming. The use of technology has shifted much of the in person learning to webinars and online modules which tends to be significantly less resource and time intensive, but not nearly as effective. This talk will describe a training platform that was delivered by an online e-learning platform that presents questions, collects responses, and provides corrective feedback.
