Well trained healthcare staff with certifications in Basic Life Support and Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support can make a huge difference in a hospital’s ability to successfully deal with critical care and emergency. This program will not only save time but also prove to be cost effective. MIMS hospital will not have to invest in the equipment as it will be completely managed by MedLern. Our training model will provide truly personalized learning to the hospital staff,” said Mr.Deepak Sharma, Co-Founder & CEO of MedLern.
This program significantly reduces training time as compared to the traditional instructor-led model. The program is divided into two parts – online, self-paced Cognitive Part 1 and Skills Session on the RQI-P GO Simulation Station. Upon completing both parts, the learner receives an American Heart Association course completion e-Card. RQI-P GO Simulation Stations are portable and can be used by hospitals to train their staff on BLS/ACLS/PALS on their hospital premises rather than them travelling to training centres in different locations. The program provides consistent training that meets diverse learning needs and features real-time, audio-visual feedback. The program accommodates the learning style and needs of the learners, and they can complete the eLearning portion at their own pace and on their own schedule.
“The innovative program will improve the staff productivity and deliver better patient outcomes at MIMS, Calicut.
