E-learning

IPCRG has worked in partnership on several major e-learning programmes.

Medscape

With Medscape Education Global we have generated continuing medical education certified materials on the diagnosis and management of people with difficult to manage asthma, exploring when to refer, what to expect from a referral to a hospital specialist, and giving an update on treatments for severe asthma.  In addition to two roundtable discussions, there are commentaries in French, Spanish, Italian and German; an interactive simulated case with a patient, and further resources.

MOOC

As part of the research programme RESPIRE led by the University of Edinburgh, funded by the UK National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), IPCRG is working with our network including colleagues in South Asia to produce the content for a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) that will be published by the University of Edinburgh MOOC team on FutureLearn.

Learning topics will include the recognition, diagnosis and management of chronic respiratory diseases in low and middle income countries.  Due end of 2020.

Treating tobacco dependence

With EPG Health for Medthority, an expert IPCRG faculty on helping smokers quit has authored an e-learning programme on treating tobacco dependence, including case studies and three assessments of learning.  This went live in June 2020; new material is being added.
