By using online training within a learning management system, we can assign it and track it. If a PMD company sponsors the online training it can be updated with changes (appearance, function, label use, discontinuation, etc.). The hospital does not need to rely on clinical educators to develop and review programs or to monitor when courses need to be removed. I advocate online training for small changes and online training in conjunction with hands-on training for medium to large changes. We call this blended learning or problem-based learning. It is efficient and effective.
