Since the COVID-19 pandemic (1), there has been a shift of almost 180 degrees. Though it may be an exaggerated statement, several changes were observed in the methods of learning, working, and interacting. Medical students and professionals found new techniques to deal with their practices and make their jobs easier. The surprising fact is that all these changes are linked to modern technologies; modern technologies have entered hard and fast into different fields. New platforms have been created for advanced medical education. eLearning has turned into a regular drill. Since it has many benefits in terms of personalized instruction, it serves trainers and learners very well. It allows the learners to change the pace and content according to their needs.
eLearning gives increased access to information to learners who prefer remote learning. It also minimizes the costs in various areas. Moreover, the learners can catch up with frequent content updates. Learners of different levels have utilized the platforms and the concept of eLearning to widen their horizons. Healthcare professionals, too, have benefitted to stay updated and improve their practice accordingly (2). Thus, eLearning is widely accepted. Moreover, it is associated with effectiveness, convenience, and adaptability. This education opportunity is beneficial to healthcare professionals of every age, education level, and position. Some advantages are examined below.
Traditional classroom teaching is slowly becoming outdated. With online learning, healthcare professionals get the chance to access unlimited content, and they can access it unlimited times. They can make use of infinite sources of knowledge in case of any questions. Sometimes professionals go through a topic and forget significant details. eLearning provides a solution to this problem.
The customizability rendered due to eLearning is a huge positive. Every physician can use eLearning as per their needs. It can be via audio, videos, webinars, worksheets, or textbooks. WHO observed that the outcome of eLearning is as effective as traditional learning methods. At times, it is more effective than traditional learning methods. Physicians looking for continuous education and professional growth find online learning more favorable. Moreover, they believe that it is easier to comprehend online content.
Physicians have been evolving their practice in distinctive directions by using services like virtual medical assistants and medical billing and coding services. But, eLearning adds to their productivity in a different way. eLearning helps them to develop skills, gain certifications and knowledge, and get the support to do something unique. It gives physicians the missing element required to reach success. It is important to catch the pace and join the current trend or practice to be successful and competent. Physicians should be aware of the latest technology and information to give the best treatment to their patients.
Healthcare practitioners have the busiest schedule. Juggling effective practices with new regulations, and fulfilling the expectations of patients are not easy tasks. Adding on more to the hectic routine would not be fair. It will probably result in more unmanageable tasks. eLearning gives physicians the flexibility of learning and taking courses according to their free time and energy. It will benefit them to gain valuable information along with understanding, and help them with retaining it in the best way.
The healthcare industry has its pros and cons. Nevertheless, a physician has the honor to bring betterment to countless lives. A physician does not have the advantage of learning solely for themselves. Staying updated and well-informed about the advances in medicine reflects in the practice of a physician (3). Proficient physicians have happier patients. Furthermore, the courses offered by eLearning focus on person-centered practices (PCP). They teach staff to prioritize the needs and demands of their patients. Also, the staff masters the skill of working on the well-being of their patients. This encourages physicians to use PCP, as they feel more connected to their work and patients.
COVID-19 brought along tremendous shifts in the healthcare industry. Yet, modern technology succeeded in extracting several positives from the situation. The pandemic forced professionals to shift their learning processes to the online medium. Let’s say that the benefits are quite evident. Physicians found eLearning (4) a great contribution to the success of their practices and the healthcare industry. It is safe to believe that eLearning is here to stay for longer and for a good reason.
