Learning to change clinical practice: a concrete way to impact patients

Learning to change clinical practice: a concrete way to impact patients
Industry
10 August 2018

The EXCEMED vision is to improve patient health - worldwide. This is an ambitious task, but we believe that by guiding doctors, individually, through a progressive and interactive learning experience, real clinical changes can result.


Impressive goals require precise ways of evaluating outcomes. What exactly do we mean when we say our brand of medical education is “outcomes-based”? We are referring to our focus on inspiring changes in clinical practice as well as monitoring how patients have improved as a result.

 

 
 

Practical applications of clinical knowledge

The EXCEMED Learning Effectiveness Programme (E-LEP) collects data from doctors immediately after a learning experience and then three months later.  Across these two intervals, doctors make a commitment to changing particular aspects of their practice and follow-up to declare whether they have in fact affected changes, and if so, how their patients have benefited.  Proposed changes in practice are always in line with the Learning Objectives of our scientific programmes.

EXCEMED scored a 90% confirmed Change in Practice among learners across medical disciplines in 2017. We are building on our ability to help doctors make real changes that improve the lives of their patients.

What are some of the concrete steps doctors have taken to change clinical practice?  

Here are some comments from healthcare practitioners three months after a learning experience with EXCEMED:

“I controlled and followed up my patients to obtain the average heart rate between from 65 up to less than 80 rpm, especially in patients with heart failure or ischemic heart disease.”

- Participant, Vietnam, Asia Pacific conference on cardiometabolic diseases management, 22-23 April 2017, Manila, Philippines

“I have improved counselling the unsuccessful patients, investigations, diagnosis and further management of these cases especially when it comes to decisions regarding third party reproduction.”

- Participant, India, Annual conference in reproductive medicine: Recurrent implantation failure - a journey into deep understanding, 21-22 April 2017, Milan, Italy

“Faster recognition of poor treatment response and more effective escalation has resulted in reversing disability in two patients.”

- Participant, South Africa, Practice teaching course in MS knowledge, 29-30 May 2017, Barcelona, Spain

"My patients have an improvement in symptoms and ventricular function and less hospitalization."

- Participant, Chile, 2017 Hot topics in cardiometabolism: an interactive update, Bogotà, Colombia, 14-15 July 2017
