-- CME Medical
, the UK’s fastest growing specialist infusion company, has upgraded its online training for users of its infusion pump technology. The CME Medical ‘e-learning’
programme is accessed via a customer log-in training portal on the CME Medical website. It is the gateway to infusion device training, information guides and operation manuals; clinical applications and drug delivery information;
plus CME Medical’s training standards and provisions. The online programme dramatically reduces the time clinical staff spend away from their patients and has been designed to mimic ‘face-to-face’
, classroom-based tuition. It also complies with national standards for medical device training.
In an age of increasing workload and budget constraints, the online training programme gives its users some clear advantages over classroom-based learning. E-learning provides a flexible and convenient method of education that is accessible at any time and in any place and therefore does not require the time and financial investment required to organise venues, travel and accommodation. The time spent away from patients is also reduced, since training time is minimised by compressing learning by up to 35-45 percent. The training portal can be tailored to account for local policy and the individual organisation can decide whether the programmes are used for initial training, updates, or re-training. The programme can be used as a stand-alone course or in conjunction with other types of training delivery.
With CME Medical’s e-learning programme the emphasis in the educational process shifts from teaching to learning, using a variety of methods. The tailored learning means users can learn in ways that suit them, potentially gaining more than with conventional methods of teaching. For example, processes and procedures - key components of medical device training - are learning methods most suited to an e-learning format. The environmental impact of personnel training is also minimised by online teaching methods and is an effective way for an organisation to reduce its carbon footprint.
According to Andrew Churnside, Sales and Marketing Director at CME Medical, “Our support does not stop after infusion pump purchase. Our Clinical Support Specialists work with our customers to develop a tailor-made training plan that ensures our products deliver maximum efficiency and outstanding patient care.”
