Message from the Medical Director: Continuing Education for Nurse Triage
Healthcare is constantly changing, and advances in telemedicine are a prime example of how far healthcare has evolved over the last decade. Research findings, new laws and regulations, and emerging technologies all mean that continuing education is important in the nurse triage field.
As a physician, I understand first hand the importance of continuing education and staying up to date with current healthcare policies and protocols. Conferences are a great way to learn and network, but financial and time constraints limit the number of people who can attend these events. In addition to print material and in-class learning, online education is becoming more prominent.
In an effort to provide learning material in a technology driven field, TriageLogic has launched a free online Triage Learning Center, with a growing library of educational resources available to nurses and medical professionals. Triage Learning Center includes videos, courses, and articles pertaining to nurse triage. Our managers from the TriageLogic’s Nurse Triage on CallTM group and myself directly supervise the learning materials.
Our online Triage Learning Center provides flexibility in continuing education because rather than being restricted to the confines of a classroom or attending a conference, healthcare professionals can access learning material on their own time. Medical call centers, healthcare facilities, hospitals, and clinics can allow their employees to utilize online learning resources during down time. Another convenient feature is the ability to work at your own pace and pause the course as needed. In addition to being a quality learning resource, TriageLogic’s Learning Center is completely FREE.
Healthcare is a part of our rapidly evolving digital world, and continuing education is beneficial for both medical professionals and patients. The increasing need for online education was a leading factor in the development of our Learning Center. TriageLogic is determined to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of nurse triage by providing online educational resources.
