In this webcast, you’ll learn:

  • e-learning best practices that are focused on enhancing learner engagement
  • how interactive e-learning elements help patients engage, reflect, and even contribute data for providers to review
  • examples of combining modern e-learning technologies such as mobile and xAPI (Tin Can) with traditional care methods to provide a more cost-effective and successful caregiver–patient interaction.
