It’s standard practice for healthcare professionals to work in a hands-on, face-to-face environment when meeting with patients, and for clinical training sessions. But in-person training pulls busy clinicians away from patients’ bedsides, stretches resources thin, and reduces training completion rates.
BD, an innovative industry and market leader in the development of high-quality medical devices and disposables, wanted to apply the same revolutionary approach it takes in medical device development to create a new, effective, digital, on-demand learning solution.
“From the time we initially had our project design workshop through the finished product, AllenComm has been a trusted and valued partner for their ability to deliver quality offerings with graphics and detail that goes far beyond that of most vendors in this space. We are continuing to use them not only for their expertise, but for their commitment to exceeding customer expectations.”
Kim Scoggins, Global Director, Clinical Education
AllenComm applied a web-based microlearning approach—allowing start and stop features—that gave nurses the flexibility to fit the training into their very busy schedules. In addition, the training was designed to boost interest, motivation, and confidence by appealing to the values that drive healthcare professionals as well as illustrating best clinical practices.
The digital learning solution was developed to prepare clinicians for face-to-face interactions with patients. Once the training is completed, BD provides the conduit for facilitating those interactions.
