In the hospital, there are constant needs for staff education. With our hospital growing at a rapid rate, “MEDITECH Education” can mean something different for each job type and clinical area. Having a standard education for basic orientation to the system just did not work anymore.

Utilizing screen-recording technology, we implemented a self-paced learning style that we use for not only new hire orientation but for new project implementations such as our recent smart pump integration project.

This presentation will discuss:
  • Issues with large classroom style learning
  • How we incorporated documentation of quality measures into orientation to improve documentation
  • Using available resources
  • Creation of self-directed learning modules to facilitate different learning types and accommodate all speeds of learners

Learning objectives:
  • Describe three issues with large classroom style learning
  • Discuss how to incorporate quality measure documentation into new hire orientation education
  • Understand the meaning of self-directed learning to accommodate different disciplines and learning styles
