Health Industry Hub | February 3, 2021 |

Pharma News: Olympus is launching a new comprehensive educational platform designed to provide healthcare professionals (HCPs) with learning opportunities and training to put their skills into practice and deliver a high level of patient care and safety.

The “Olympus Continuum” platform will empower HCPs at different stages of their career with innovative education and specialised training experiences. The platform builds on the existing Olympus training program, which trains more than 25,000 HCPs annually over 1,400 courses.

Chief Medical Officer, Ross D. Segan, MD, MBA, FACS, said “Healthcare professionals work in a variety of settings and have a multitude of needs–and their expectations for training courses have evolved well past traditional skills-based learning. Our new platform connects the continuum of care with the continuum of learning. A truly blended experience, Olympus Continuum maximises digital self-guided pre-learning, direct in-person training, and post-learning collaboration to support healthcare professional across every stage of their career and to improve patient outcome.”

HCPs using the “Olympus Continuum” platform will access Olympus’

  • Education Portal
  • On-Demand Library
  • Training Centres
  • Resources
  • Products & Solutions

According to Olympus, the platform offers a continuum of blended learning that takes HCPs from basic to advanced, providing more educational opportunities/experiences and increasing accessibility through the utilisation of technology. Hands-on courses will be provided in the 15 dedicated Olympus training labs, hospitals and other labs all over the world.

The platform also is relevant for the current conditions created by the COVID-19 pandemic. There was growing demand from healthcare professionals for on-demand, digitally-enabled virtual training and this has increased further during COVID-19. This new platform provides a combination of virtual and on-site training.

Learning opportunities include hands-on courses, online learning, lectures and workshops, peer-to-peer training, accredited continuing education and on-demand learning.
