Moncton nurses release 12 e-learning modules.

Last fall, Moncton nurses Trisha Coady and Lynn Casey (see May 2006 edition of Info Nursing) officially released a full slate of 12 computer-based, interactive learning modules with online support to meet the continuing education needs of nurses in Canada and the United States. Further expansion is planned over the next year.

Coady and Casey, who have front line experience in emergency and critical care, conducted a market survey over the last several years and found that there was a need for affordable and accessible continuing education for nurses.

The e-learning modules are being marketed under the "MedSenses" company name. MedSenses is essentially an educational portal for health care providers that includes comprehensive interactive learning both online and on CD. The modules are being made available on CD-ROM's so that, even without a high-speed internet connection, anyone with a computer can have easy access to the same information with the same level of visual and interactive richness.

The two, working with a team of writers and designers, have produced learning modules that integrate solid medical and technical information with insight and stories from real-world clinical experiences as well as original, copyrighted illustrations and graphics.

MedSenses is currently offering education components in the areas of neonatal, pediatrics, adult, trauma and transport. The offerings are accredited by the American Nurses Credentialing Centre for continuing education credit and are appropriate for nurses new to the profession or transitioning into a new area of care, as well as highly-experienced nurses seeking to refresh and update knowledge and skills.
