Chronic Disease Education For Your Team: Online or Live? Which Way Is The Path To Success?

chronic disease educationChronic Disease education is a big decision. You know how important management of chronic illness is. If you know it, then educational choice is just as important. There are definite advantages to both methods, but you must find what works for you. Ultimately, chronic disease education is a must. So, here are some things to consider in your decision. 

5 Things To Consider In Choosing Chronic Disease Education: 

One size does not fit all in chronic disease education. If you are unsure which is best for you, check out these 5 things. 

  • Size Of Staff 
  • Education Budget 
  • Plan For Subsequent Education 
  • Breakdown of Nurses, Therapists, And Aides 
  • Strength Of Current Chronic Disease Management Program 

What Now?

The bottom line is how you want to implement your program based on the abovementioned factors. On-site is great from the standpoint of the live person in front of a captive audience that can ask questions. However, that happens only when the person comes on-site. That individual is not there for new hires. Re-evaluating your program may mean more education to expect improvement. It means interventions that are immersed in all disciplines. This is where online education can be so effective. It allows agencies to focus on the individual as well as the agency overall. If you need to train in multiple shifts over a longer period, then online education is a great way to make it happen. If you decide to train in person, then transition for maintenance in an online program works well.
