At a conference a while back, one of the presenters shared a song to remember the cranial nerves. While we loved the presenter and the rest of her tools, that particular song just never did it for us. In fact, after scouring the internet for ways to remember the cranial nerves... nothing stuck with us.

We've posted a few teaching ideas for our new EMS module but it seems appropriate to also post some free resources for our EMS/EMT and Paramedic programs from around the web.

In addition to the Universities and Colleges who use EHR Tutor, we've spoken to a lot of Health Occupations programs that are part of secondary school programs lately. To help standardize CTE standards across the country, we've heard quite a few schools mention national Health Care standards when discussing the creation/revision of their curriculum. Hopefully, the document below will help those schools quickly integrate a system like EHR Tutor while outlining the standards your program fulfills (feel free to use our verbiage, we know you don't have nearly enough time to rewrite all these points into your course descriptions!).

Latin Lessons and Medical Terminology?

Mar 27, 2014 6:11:00 PM / by user posted in free resources, medical terminology, Nursing Students

During the Pennsylvania HOSA State Leadership Conference, we met with a vendor who sold, in addition to other materials, Latin textbooks. Like he said, medical terminology seems to trip up even the most intelligent students. But when you boil all the terminology down to basics - most of it is based in Latin.

Free Patient Scenarios for Instructors

We love all things free (as you should know if you read our blog). One thing we've been searching for is a website with example Physician's Notes. Granted, all of our template patients in EHR Tutor have Physician's Notes already created for them, but we realize that instructors may want more charting to use in patient scenarios than any one system can provide.

Poll Everywhere for the Classroom

We used to be big fans of using clickers with our smartboard to quiz students during class. For example, after a lesson about diabetes, it would make sense to ask the class after a diabetic patient scenario: "Would his insulin levels be going up or down?". Using the clickers, the students can answer. If one student sees that only two people answered the wrong answer and he/she was one of those people, it gives them a push to study a little harder without having to publicly admit to the wrong answer. It's also a great way to get students participating after a long lecture.

We just found this great video of head-to-toe assessments with tons of comments from appreciative students. We figured we should share it here for any students out there who are just learning how to do these assessments or any instructors who are looking for a way to format their lessons.
