informatics in healthcare D5

Discuss what training programs are needed for the technology required for ELearning in the medical field. Consider what training to provide to new employees and what on-going training may be necessary.

E-learning in healthcare will be the subject of my signature assignment. E-learning may be defined in many ways, but its primary focus is on using technology to give online access to educational materials to benefit students’ education.  I want to go into greater depth about the usage of e-learning in healthcare for disseminating healthcare-related information and skills via electronic means. This paper highlights the problems I faced while locating sources for my project and using the useful resources I found.

Some of the problems I have encountered include that some of the sources found are more than five years old. There is no correlation between e-learning and better patient outcomes (Vaona et al., 2018). Therefore, I cannot assess its impact on the patient. E-learning does not have a big impact on patient or health professional outcomes on its own, but it can help them. Decisions about whether to use a traditional or an e-learning approach are based on a variety of factors, including the effectiveness of the interventions, factors such as ease of use, retention, and cost. To avoid going overboard, I had trouble getting a handle on the scope of my project. There are many complicated details in some of the sources I used, and some of the jargon is difficult to understand on how data is transmitted electronically.

As promising as several published systematic studies on e-learning have been, there is still a lack of data to support the claims that e-learning is just as successful as conventional ways of learning or teaching, as well as the elements connected with it. E-learning systematic reviews have three significant shortcomings: they are largely descriptive, fail to explain assessment methods, and most have flaws due to unstable or objectionable study designs.

E-learning has also been the subject of various studies, and the findings have been equivocal with varying degrees of support for the claims made for it. A comparison between findings from online learning and no training methods has shown that online learning is considerably more efficient at improving knowledge, skills, and even positive behaviors, but this does not unquestionably imply the findings are statistically significant, primarily because of the heterogeneous (irreconcilable) findings and the prevalence of small studies.

Another issue I faced in locating sources for my project was finding valid and reliable information about this case because I had to sift through diverse perspectives. I had to make sure that the information I was reading was factual by comparing it with other resources. I found a lot of useful information about e-learning in healthcare and how it can improve the education of healthcare professionals. The sources include Bryn Holmes and John Gardener’s “E-Learning: Concepts and Practice.” The book expounds on what e-learning entails and why it has become so popular in today’s world. Using this book, I hope to provide a comprehensive overview of current and future e-learning approaches and examine the implications of implementing e-learning in the workplace. The article “E-learning for Health Professionals,” written by Alberto Vaona and others, was another excellent resource. Covers the fundamentals of e-learning and compares e-learning programs to traditional learning. It relies on previous research to back up its claims. To support its claims, the paper relies on its own experimental studies. Examining whether or whether licensed health professionals benefit from electronic learning programs rather than conventional classroom instruction is something I want to accomplish with this paper.

In healthcare settings, e-learning is as effective as face-to-face training. It facilitates the delivery of essential knowledge and skills related to healthcare through information and communication technology. Currently, e-learning in medical education has become more popular due to improved accessibility and convenience. Unlike traditional learning, e-learning allows medical students to access information remotely and at their own pace. However, there is no link between e-learning and improved patient outcome. Also, healthcare professionals attain similar skills, behaviors, and knowledge either through e-learning or traditional learning.
