Medifecta Healthcare Training offers a spectrum of educational resources to thousands of organizations that work with family and professional caregivers
Medford, Oregon (PRWEB) April 30, 2009
The updated Medifecta Healthcare Training website provides navigational and dropdown menus to help family and professional care providers find educational resources of interest by topic or type. This revamped design is intended to make DVDs, books, and training programs on subjects such as Alzheimer's, elder abuse, and fall prevention easy to find for any visitor.
In addition to its streamlined, integrated navigation, the site has also been revamped to feature 3 specific tracks tailored to individual or industry needs. The first focuses on family caregiver resources, providing support and education for family caregivers along with access to resources on stress reduction, caregiver wellness, and basic care skills.
In addition, Medifecta's site now includes a section for government and community agencies such as area agencies on aging, county councils on aging, public authorities, community colleges and university libraries. The third section focuses on orientation, continuing education and training materials for home health and home care agencies.
The website now provides online caregiver training via the newly launched Medifecta Online Academy. Using Learning Management System (LMS) technology, the Academy allows organizations to assign, track and monitor staff training and testing. Streaming videos, support materials, testing, grades and certificates of completion are included in the Medifecta Online Academy package. Topics can be selected from Medifecta's entire DVD library.
"Medifecta Healthcare Training offers a spectrum of educational resources to thousands of organizations that work with family and professional caregivers," says Marion Karpinski, R.N., President of Medifecta Healthcare Training. "Our population is aging rapidly and there's a pressing need to train many more professional and family caregivers. Our revamped website makes it easier for organizations and individuals to access and acquire that training."
