While classroom training is highly effective it is not always a viable solution – many teams are dispersed or out in the field. Therefore other forms of training such as virtual classroom training, eLearning and microlearning are becoming more popular.
Microlearning is a relatively quick and cost-effective way to produce training that keeps the skills of employees across departments and countries current. Here are a few ways this form of eLearning can benefit roles in the healthcare industry.
Reduce Nurse Turnover
One of the reasons cited for turnover is that new nurses report a lack of training and formal onboarding by the organizations in which they work. A solid training strategy to combat this trend is microlearning.
By providing a series of short videos nurses can watch on their smartphones or tablets between their regular duties, they can quickly get the information they need on specific subjects without spending hours in a classroom. Microlearning has proven to be effective in the just-in-time training of RNs with 65% more retention of training information compared to 10% for lectures and manuals.2
Decrease Patient No-Show Rates
Many patients worry about their scheduled treatments or procedures, unsure of what to expect, resulting in relatively high no-show rates. To help put their minds at ease, some healthcare facilities are producing short microlearning videos that patients can watch at their convenience prior to their procedures. These videos can cover topics such as explaining the ailment, the steps in the treatment, and what the patient can expect during and after the medical appointment.
Reduce Patient Readmissions
Once a patient has been treated for an illness or condition, they need to be educated on lifestyle changes or a specific course of treatment.
As a cost-effective and agile tool, microlearning could be the training format pharmaceutical and healthcare organizations will want to adopt to ensure all employees are fully trained and can access on-demand courses as needed to ensure peak performance in these vital and growing industries.
