Doctors.net.uk expands online educational resources

Online physicians network adds to existing material to aid medical training

Doctors.net.uk has published a new set of educational resources designed to support formal NHS training.

The new videos feature three procedures that all doctors are expected to be able to perform before being signed off for completion of their mandatory two-year Foundation Programme – a central line insertion, paracentesis and thoracentesis.

Tim Ringrose, CEO of Doctors.net.uk, the UK's online network of doctors, said: “In recent years, more and more doctors have turned to the internet for educational purposes, ranging from formal continuing professional development (CPD) courses to conference highlights.

“This trend, which has been driven by times and money constraints, has opened up new opportunities for pharma to engage with doctors by, for example, sponsoring education modules, videos or research papers. This kind of activity can work effectively alongside promotional tactics, provided it meets the ABPI or EFPIA Code.”

The videos are designed as a point of reference to support doctors as they gain practical experience and training in emergency departments and hospital wards. The new material complements the existing resources on the website which includes clinical examination videos, online learning modules, learning needs assessments and conference highlights.

The announcement comes two months after Doctors.net.uk's owners M3 announced an online messaging service to enable pharma companies to take a personal approach in their online dealings with doctors.

The service is embedded within Doctors.net.uk so members can see the messages immediately when logging in.
