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.

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!).

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!

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.

Incorporating Electronic Health Records into the Nursing or CNA classroom isn't just about learning how to chart. It's about teaching students how to think... critically.

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.
