Charlottesville, VA (PRWEB) January 08, 2016
Following the success of two highly effective educational initiatives, ArcheMedX and North American Center for Continuing Medical Education, LLC (NACCME) are pleased to announce an expanded collaboration with the launch of a new online educational series designed to improve the assessment and treatment of patients with psoriasis. This innovative e-learning program, supported by an educational grant from Lilly USA, LLC, is comprised of five interactive web-based activities for nurse practitioners (NPs) and physician assistants (PAs) and is powered by the ArcheViewer, a data-driven e-learning and real-time analytics platform.
Since the onset of the collaboration between NACCME and ArcheMedX, a total of 13 online activities have launched, including five from the most recent initiative, Strategies To Improve The Assessment And Treatment Of Psoriasis: A Roadmap For NPs And PAs. The first e-learning programs developed in collaboration between NACCME and ArcheMedX, Evidence-Based Approaches For Achieving Full Clearance In Nail Psoriasis and Patient-Centric Care Strategies For Early And Advanced Parkinson’s Disease, have achieved tremendous impact since launching earlier in 2015. The continued success, including exceptional completion rates and high levels of learner engagement, can be attributed to the more interactive nature of the learning activities.
Interspersed throughout the activities are a series of Educator Notes and interactive polls designed by faculty to prompt learners to reflect and take action at the right moments, driving them to review additional related resources (i.e., journal articles, clinical studies, and practice tools) made available directly within the ArcheViewer. These “nudges” encourage learners to more actively participate throughout the e-learning activities, enabling them to absorb critical lessons more efficiently and move newly learned concepts into long-term memory.
Mike Kearney, SVP, Educational Strategy at NACCME, explains, “We are excited to expand our partnership with ArcheMedX. The ArcheVeiwer allows NACCME to provide interactive continuing educational activities that continue to exceed the expectations of our learners and demonstrate terrific outcomes.”
The most recent educational initiative in psoriasis launched on December 15, 2015 and includes 5 interactive web-based activities powered by the ArcheViewer. In addition to faculty nudges, this interactive education currently engages clinicians by providing a suite of learning tools that enable them to:
- Take, sync, and archive their own notes
- Respond to in-lesson polling
- Set personal reminders with the click of a button
- Explore relevant resources collated by faculty
- Submit questions to faculty
Data analysis is a cornerstone of the ArcheViewer’s approach to transforming e-learning and the comprehensive learning measurement and outcomes analysis capabilities also provided by the ArcheViewer enable the NACCME team to more effectively assess the impact of their education and to continually develop better educational programs over time.
