DocMode, a global online medical learning platform, in partnership with the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh, has launched various e-learning courses.The courses are on the subjects of diabetes, critical care nutrition, heart failure, mechanical ventilation and critical thinking.
They will help doctors to efficiently diagnose and treat diabetes, gain an insight into a systematic approach to diagnosing heart failure and also develop the knowledge and acumen to encounter major events related to critical care. The critical thinking course would highly aid in sharpening one’s ability to make sound decisions—an element which is often not getting adequate attention.
DocMode’s partner in this undertaking, Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh is a medical royal college in Scotland. It is one of the three organisations that set the specialty training standards for physicians in the UK.
Professor Derek Bell, President of the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh said: “DocMode is an important e-learning tool, which enables clinicians to stay up-to-speed with new developments across a range of treatments and aspects of care.
“Under the mechanical ventilation course for example, the syllabus structure adopted is a case-based approach. This will enable multidimensional knowledge of all situations that a clinician is likely to encounter during mechanical ventilation, to manage critical care.”
Hans Lewis, Founder and CEO of DocMode said, “Our endeavour is to eliminate unbiased learning and transform medical education, besides bridging skill gaps amongst the healthcare professionals to address evolving needs of patients in the 21st Century.
The course on diabetes requires a commitment of 9 weeks, 2 hours per week; six weeks, two hours per week for heart failure; 8 weeks, 2 hours per week for mechanical ventilation, critical thinking course requires 8 weeks, 2 hours per week and critical care nutrition course requires 6 week, 2 hours per week on the side of the participant.
Paulson Paul, Founder and COO, DocMode said, “We have been reaching out to health professionals for some time now. An advantage of continued learning is that it expands knowledge, capabilities and commitment of individuals involved or planning to be engaged in the healthcare sector.”
Keith McKellar, CEO, Royal College of Physicians Edinburgh, said: “Our association with DocMode will go a long way in broadening necessary education and training for physicians through online courses”.
On completion of the course (s), learners will receive a certificate. For further details, visit the DocMode website.
