The ISTH and Digitec Interactive have partnered to bring online education to physicians specializing in bleeding and clotting disorders worldwide.
Orlando, FL (PRWEB) June 19, 2013
The ISTH, the leading worldwide not-for-profit organization dedicated to advancing the understanding, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of thrombotic and bleeding disorders, is pleased to announce its partnership with Digitec Interactive, the leader in easy-to-use learning portals and engaging eLearning programs and courseware for online continuing medical education (CME). The ISTH has selected the Knowledge Direct® MED learning management system (LMS) from Digitec Interactive to deliver CME to its more than 3,500 members worldwide. The new online portal will act as a single, unified repository for self-paced courses, live and recorded webinars, recorded conferences, and poster sessions which will be available to both members and non-members.
“We are excited about the partnership with the ISTH and look forward to working alongside individuals who share our mission to transform learning to change lives,” said Dick Hofmann, VP of Sales at Digitec Interactive. “Medical specialty societies have the unique ability and responsibility to ensure physicians, scientists and healthcare professionals around the world are receiving the latest training in the advancement of medicine. The work the ISTH is doing to promote scientific understanding and improve patient care will positively affect the lives of millions of people around the world.”
Development of the new online portal is under way and includes many benefits to members looking to learn online. Members can expect an intuitive and easy-to-use experience tailored to help them meet their personal learning goals. The online portal also gives busy researchers and physicians the option of completing activities and assignments on-the-go from any mobile device or laptop, anytime — day or night.
The new, engaging eLearning portal will launch this fall with two self-paced courses, Coagulation System and Venous Thrombosis. Additional interactive self-paced courses will be designed and developed in collaboration between ISTH and Digitec Interactive and be made available to members through the portal over the next year.
