Paramedics expect their base hospital to provide educational support to those who are practising. To make this experience robust and more meaningful, we developed an online platform that we call MedicLEARN for hosting education materials.
MedicLEARN is a clearinghouse for training documents and an integrated portal for paramedic access to online classes. Most of the content is developed at the RPPEO. The Ontario Base Hospital Group's Education Subcommittee also provides provincial content. All of the courses and information we post to MedicLEARN is vetted for its relevance to paramedic practice in our region.
The online course content is not only accessible in MedicLEARN: it's also integrated with paramedic profiles in the MedicNET system. This means that the updating of paramedic files with completed CME or other educational attainment done in MedicLEARN is seamless.
