“Dedicated training programs, protocols and care checklists and systematic, data-driven quality improvement programs would create a big positive impact in their productivity and deliver better patient outcomes. This professional course will update their medical knowledge for the larger societal benefit. Digital skilling in health care is our unique strength and we are confident these courses will make a big impact in all health care settings as this would also offer nurses who aspire to hone their expertise a significant edge in this highly impactful field,” Deepak Sharma, CEO, MedLearn said.
MedLern provides hospitals and health care professionals with a comprehensive learning management platform for training and skill development that offers around-the-clock learning that can cover continuing education, compliance and many other areas.
