When we talk to Simulation Lab Coordinators and Instructors, we've come across all sorts of setups. We've met High-Fidelity Sim Lab Coordinators, Nursing Instructors who use the old school, low-tech mannequins and instructors of new programs who are using a combination of virtual, paper and volunteer patients. Not only have we talked to each type of school, but we have all varieties of instructors and schools using EHR Tutor in effective, interesting ways. So just because your school does things a little bit different, doesn't mean your students can't benefit from the latest technology. Here's how:
As future nurses, medical professionals and healthcare instructors, we know you're all aware of Meaningful Use and how it's impacting providers' use of EHRs and EMRs. One thing we rarely focus on is the patients role in all this.
After launching our EMS/EMT module this year, we've been coming up with ideas for how instructors can use an EHR system like EHR Tutor with their students.
|Using an Academic EHR in the Classroom - Not just in the Sim Lab!|
Wednesday, August 13, 2014
3:30 PM - 4:00 PM (Eastern Time)
Academic EHRs aren't just for the Sim Lab! Learn how to use an EHR system in the classroom to encourage critical thinking and help cement tricky concepts for students.
Diane Yeager, Founder of FreeNurseTutor.com & EHR Tutor, will be discussing several examples of how to use an EHR in the classroom using a stroke and diabetes patient scenario.
Because this webinar is open to any instructors who are considering or currently using any Academic EHR System, we ask that you hold any questions about our system, EHR Tutor, until after the initial 20 minute example lesson plan.
A while back we added a new feature for our users and it just dawned on us that we never posted the updates to our blog. So for anyone that might have been wondering, we now have a Patient Education Resource Link for students to use. How would you use our new feature?
We regularly get asked about a few different features in our site by prospective clients so we wanted to take this opportunity to explain our philosophy at Noggin Group and why we do things the way we do.
In honor of sponsoring the Medical Math Competition at Skills USA this year, we thought we'd post another idea for incorporating math into your Nursing and Health Occupations classroom while using an EHR.
For non-nurses, it may come as a surprise that math is such a big factor in nursing education and nursing in general. But here at EHR Tutor, we understand just how crucial it is for a nurse to be able to determine the correct dosage of a medication or attach the proper amount of fluid in an IV bag.
