We've been stumbling across quite a few useful infographics lately, so we thought we'd keep up the trend. After finding some images related to specific diseases, we realized these might be useful for those of you who are visual learners. While you may have already listened to a lecture on these diseases, we thought this series of infographics might help solidify the information. These are also great for instructors who would like to provide more resources for students who need visual instruction.
Now that we have our Provider module for Advanced Practice and Physician's Assistant students, we'd love to get the gears moving when it comes to teaching ideas. If your school has either one of these programs, email us to set up a demo and explore how our product could work for your school.
We found this fascinating infographic from University of Florida outlining the demographics of different diseases in the US. Examining this from a Nurse Education standpoint, we think it's fascinating how different regions may provide extremely different clinical experiences for students. For example, students in North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia will probably work with more Heart Disease and Stroke patients than their northern counterparts. On the other hand, a student working in California facilities is more likely to encounter HIV/AIDS patients.
We recently did a demo with a school that is planning to use EHR Tutor for use with remediation classes and although we've never though of that -- it's a great idea!
While we love the Nursing programs and Nurse Educator's using our EHR System, we'd like to remind everyone out there that the medical/healthcare field involves more than just Doctors and Nurses. If you're a student, stay at home mom or just a regular old Joe looking for a new career, we've found some great careers that can be started after as little as 2 months of training!
With mere weeks left until Summer Vacation, we decided to put some tips together for those instructors who either have a lightened schedule or have the summer off.
We mentioned a new site that we found on our last blog post, but after looking through their resources, we've decided we need to dedicate a whole post to this amazing, free, resource: PracticalClinicalSkills.com.
We recently did a webinar on using outside resources within your EHR system. If you're a customer of EHR Tutor, feel free to check out the Resource Library to watch the recording, but if you're not, we're posting some very basic ideas below:

We often talk about how an EHR system can be used in the classroom as well as in the Simulation Lab or after clinical rotations. However, we realized we rarely post ideas for how to do so on this blog. Sure, we've mentioned it in passing in relation to EMS/EMT programs, Vaccines, Nutrition and our recently added Polling Feature, but we've decided to do a few posts specifically with classroom and lecture ideas.
