An Education Partner Brings Value Added Services to YOUR Customers
4/19/2013
No doubt as a consultant or pharmacy in long term care, you see facilities that require inservicing and education.
Many pharmacies have a contractual obligation to provide IV Therapy education or other pharmacy related education. How does your company provide this education?

Developing quality education for your customers is a time consuming process. The education must be developed from evidence and best practices, requiring hours of research to develop. Each course should have measurable objectives and a test to reflect the attainment of those objectives. Presenting education and inservices is always a challenge. There are 3 shifts to contend with, schedules to rearrange to attend the inservice, and schedule arrangements to meet resident care needs during the inservice. Testing and grading of exams is a tedious process with mounds of paper to keep track of. Providing education in today's world presents challenges in resources, scheduling, travel expenses, and the overhead of delivering quality education. From large corporate training programs, to the small pharmacy or consultant firm trying to grow or compete for business, the challenges of supporting your customer's needs can be daunting.

What is the 21st century answer to this process? In two words Online Education! Pedagogy is here to help you. Here is how partnering with Pedagogy solves the challenges you face:
