Businesses and medical organizations alike depend upon a variety of specialized devices, instruments, and equipment to get their work done, and the technologies are continuously evolving. Corporate and medical training eLearning platforms are a great way to teach workers and clinicians how to successfully use their professional tools to their full potential. Using eLearning platforms for device, instrument, and equipment training helps businesses and organizations reduce the labor expenditure involved in in-person training, while standardizing the training process to ensure that everyone receives the same high quality, comprehensive, engaged, and validated training curriculum. Videos, animations, graphics, text, and interactive programming all combine to create rich eLearning platforms that effectively communicate the necessary information by keeping learners interested and active throughout the learning process.
The practice of medicine relies heavily on technological advancement to both contain costs and expand treatment opportunities. Clinicians must continually expand their skills to ensure mastery of the tools they use to provide medical care. Creating dedicated medical eLearning platforms for device and instrument training helps ensure that clinicians receive the information and instruction they need on new medical devices and instruments, what they do, the advantages they offer, how they work, and how they are set up, operated, and maintained. Medical device training eLearning platforms are typically built as web applications to ensure access from all computers and computing devices, including tablets like the Apple iPad® and even smartphones like the iPhone®. Course content can be created from texts and graphics, videos, animations, and/or interactive exercises with gaming dynamics. Unique combinations of interactive multimedia help focus learners’ attention and increase their retention of the information.
Gated navigation ensures that users of medical device eLearning platforms go through the entire course material sequentially before testing their acquired knowledge, ensuring that the full course materials are absorbed by all users. Tests can be interspersed throughout the eLearning course, or simply put at the end for final validation of learning outcomes for each user. Tests may also be randomized to ensure that no two users takes the same test, reducing the chances of users taking shortcuts to complete the course. Finally, a personalized certificate of completion validates that the user has completed the medical device eLearning course, helping to reduce liability for the medical device manufacturer and ensure medical practices that their staff is capable of handling the new medical device, instrument, or interventional suite. A randomized code can be included with each certificate, allowing clinics to validate their clinicians’ training by visiting the eLearning platform and verifying the certification code. Custom built learning management systems like the kind that DDA offers ensures that whatever the training needs are, they can be met with the maximum results ensured.
Corporate training programs for equipment can also be enhanced with the use of custom multimedia eLearning platforms from DDA. Companies that rely upon their workers’ mastery of equipment to complete their work can benefit enormously by the capacity for eLearning programs to centralize training and ensure a uniform and complete training program that is distributed equally to all employees. Corporate eLearning platforms are better able to capture attention using rich interactive multimedia content that compels trainees to keep moving through the course material. From video and animation to synchronized texts, graphics, interactive exercises, and more, eLearning platforms are effective ways to train employees on how to use equipment before they start working with the real thing. Gated navigation structures and testing features ensure that all coursework is received and users are validated on their retention of the information. Exercises themselves can test users on how well they understand operating new equipment in a risk-free simulation. With certification, metrics, and validation procedures, companies can establish a record of training compliance that helps ensure safety for workers and others and reduces liability.
The LivaNova XTRA ATS eLearning platform was custom designed and developed by DDA in 2019. This eLearning platform trains clinicians on the set up, operation, and maintenance of the XTRA autotransfusion system, the leading ATS for use in intraoperative blood recovery during clinical procedures such as cardiac surgery. All video was shot in DDA’s own studios. The course begins with a whiteboard animation created in house by DDA’s animators that explains how the XTRA ATS works in intraoperative recovery. The rest of the course content uses live action video with synchronized texts on the side that highlight to reinforce key points in the voice-over narration, which was also recorded in DDA’s studios using talent from DDA’s Actors’ Network. An interactive XTRA ATS assembly exercise uses drag and drop interactivity to test users on how to set up the machine for operation, and a randomized test at the end ensures that users have sufficient knowledge before the platform issues a personalized certificate of completion demonstrating mastery of the material. Extensive administrative features include global metrics filtered by 15 fields of demographic information captured during registration, detailed metrics on each test question, user management, and team creation, allowing lower tier administrators to view global metrics specific to their organization. The LivaNova XTRA ATS eLearning platform has reduced training costs while standardizing training to ensure that clinicians using the XTRA ATS are competent to use the full range of its features and certified to ensure compliance wherever it is used throughout the world.
