Workshop for educators

Format: Online

Date: June 21, 2024

This virtual workshop aims at facilitating some of the latest insights into delivering effectively continuous medical education.

Shortage of personnel, inflation, climate change, sustainability, digital revolution with surveys reporting that 87% of Health Care Professionals (HCP) want a choice of digital/hybrid education, are only a few of the challenges of today.

In this context new educational approaches are required, which enable our educators to create the right content, deliver a personalised experience for HCP audiences and cater to their educational needs with a suitable format that accommodates any channel the audience uses. This approach necessitates an omnichannel strategy.

The workshop intends to bring useful insights that will help educators navigate these challenges.

The event will propose different topics for discussion every year to make the most of every minute.
