There was previously no infrastructure in the
UK where comparisons could be made to judge the efficiency of different
routes when looking at treatment and testing pathways in Non-Small Cell
Lung Cancer. A patient pathway tool was developed in order to enable
test centres to gauge their performance; build up an EGFR Patient
Pathway network encompassing all test centres and ensure each EGFR M+
patient had the best chance possible of having optimised treatment. The
tool was supported by EGFR eLearning and apps and a case study sharing
website to share knowledge through peer-to-peer communication. The
results surpassed all expectations with a 100% increase in oncologists
considering EGFR testing to be very or extremely important. NICE
recommend a 'test-all' approach so all eligible patients should now
receive EGFR testing.
Clever use of a very simple clinically relevant tool, that was able to collect powerful data for the company. A clear leader in the HCP education field.
Following Pockney's study (BJC, 2009) showing that GPs are missing one in five skin malignancies, Cancer Research UK and the British Association of Dermatologists felt there was a clear need for further education amongst GPs in the area of early diagnosis of skin cancer. A comprehensive suite of educational tools and an online Referral Decision Aid was developed to improve GPs' ability to identify malignant skin lesions and increase their confidence in making more appropriate referrals. Over a six month period over 9,500 GPs engaged with the toolkit which has made it the most visited resource for GPs since Doctors.net.uk was founded in 1998.
A very sophisticated clinical site that is practically very useful and met an unmet need in the NHS. The broad stakeholder engagement impressed the judges, as did the impressive results.
Abbott wanted to be seen as a committed partner in the provision of needs-driven medical education in hepatology. Aiming to provide online support to 2000 hepatologists in year 1, the team developed a non-promotional educational website that provided access to international experts and centres of excellence,with the goal of enhancing clinical management of liver disease. By building an online hepatology community best practice could be shared, demonstrating tangible benefits for real-world patient care, with 1500 visitors in 12 months. In the first year over 2000 HCPs directly participated in educational events with 88% of respondents indicating a change in practice as a result of their participation demonstrating real-world benefit.
A well planned and executed activity which undoubtedly brings huge value to users, it demonstrates a nice approach to education across countries, utilising experts and thought-leaders and sharing info. An excellent central hub for those HCPs working in the field.
Unique collaboration with the British Menopause Society (BMS) resulted in a 12 month multi-wave online programme supporting the objectives of the BMS in the provision of menopause education, enabling clinicians to make informed choices in their management of menopausal patients. A content rich website was developed providing up to date information on developments in menopause management. The resources available included accredited eCME module + KOL interpretation of outcomes; clinical summaries; guideline reviews and updates; treatment algorithm; conference reports; BMS resource section; IMS consensus document and commentary from the BMS chairman. Results to date are very positive with over 11,000 unique clinicians engaging in the website
Allergies are on the increse, yet the typical level of knowledge within the HCP population remains low. CMA is the most common food allergy in infants, yet symptoms are often mistaken for other common conditions. This CMA e-learning module raises awareness of undiagnosed CMA and its burden on society and HCPs. Launched via Univadis, the course went live across 24 countries. Even with limited promotion the course has been visited by nearly 1400 professionals and is held up by Univadis as a best practice example for development of interactive educational content.
