In March 2012, our founder Chimeren Peerbhai spoke on a panel on the topic of SELF-SUFFICIENT CONTINUED EDUCATION PROGRAMS FOR HOSPITALS.
Field clinical trainers are often on the go, traveling to numerous hospital locations and transferring product knowledge and education to physicians, surgeons, nurses and other healthcare professionals. However, clinical trainers are usually required to make more than one visit when training a large amount of end-users within a hospital setting. Rather than returning to train newly hired staff, many medical device companies are working closely with hospitals to establish internal continuing education programs that allow hospitals to become educationally independent post the initial clinical training event. This panel discussion will showcase best practices and strategies for convincing hospitals of the value in implementing internal continued education programs as well as highlight the time and cost savings that can directly follow.
