The holidays are always a strange time when it comes to teaching. Students already have turkey brain, instructors don't want to start anything new and schedules are modified. If you find yourself with a class of Nursing or Health students and need a way to fill those last few hours before Thanksgiving break, we're including an idea below. We'll also be doing a webinar on this topic on the 16th at 3:30pm Eastern if you'd like to join. You can also check out last year's post with additional suggestions.
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.
|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.
We announced the upcoming launch of our EMT module this week, so we thought it was appropriate to post a teaching idea for any EMS/EMT Instructors out there.
For anyone who missed it, I'm including a link to our most recent webinar with teaching ideas for adding complexity to patient scenarios. If you'd like to be on our list for future webinars, be sure to add your email here: http://eepurl.com/O4ldj
For those of you who aren't familiar with us already, we host monthly webinars to share teaching ideas for instructors who are using, or thinking about using, an Academic EHR system. Our webinars are not sales pitches, so even if you have a system you're happy with you might learn a new way to use what you already have! Register with the information below if you'd like to join and don't forget to sign up for our email list so you know every time we host a new webinar.
We recently did a webinar on Shared Charting (a feature we recently released on EHR Tutor) and we thought that even the instructors who could not attend might appreciate one of the scenarios we covered.
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.
If you're doing a lesson plan and need a sample patient scenario for the classroom, we found a great resource from University of Virginia Medical School. You can find 6 different patients along with common concerns and problems with those patients.
