Trends in Healthcare Learning
Healthcare is changing rapidly in the United States, and it’s no surprise that healthcare education needs to do the same, to match transformations in the care environment and in the practices clinicians follow to achieve better outcomes. This eBook addresses some new directions healthcare education is taking for new and existing clinical staff. One is the emergence of lifelong learning as a long term career need for nursing and elsewhere in healthcare, to ensure that employees improve their clinical competency and stay abreast of advances in healthcare. Others are in how healthcare training is delivered, whether through a transition to low-dose, high frequency learning that improves knowledge retention or with gaming and micro-simulation that has been found to enhance competency.
