Dr. Maria Valdez had been to live clinical trial training before. She often found it boring and unimaginative. She complained to herself,“if I see one more slide with tiny fonts and dozens of bullet points, I think I’ll scream.” Still, she did like the opportunity to meet the experts running the trials and she did always seem to have a dozen or so specific questions that were best answered in a live, face-to-face environment. Email never seemed to be a good vehicle for the types of questions she always seemed to ask.
To prepare to be involved in the trial, Dr. Valdez had logged onto her organization’s Learning Management System (LMS) and took the two GCP online modules. The online courses gave her an excellent understanding of what she needed to do but she was hoping for a few “live” meetings with some of the experts running the trial. She wondered if that would even be possible, they were thousands of miles away and travel was restricted due to budget concerns. Still, she’d like to have answers to her questions.This is an excerpt from the latest white paper by Karl Kapp, Ed.D., CFPIM, CIRM, Professor of Instructional Technology at Bloomsburg University. If you're in life sciences, you can probably relate to the situation Karl describes.
Title 21 CFR Part 11 compliant LMSs have revolutionized life sciences training. But as the industry continues to face intensified pressure to cut costs and maintain strict regulatory compliance, some companies are looking for new and complementary technology choices to cost-effectively improve learning outcomes.
Karl details this new technology solution in his white paper, Compliant Collaboration & Learning in Virtual Immersive Environments. He explains how virtual immersive environments can provide life sciences companies the opportunity to hold targeted training programs and meetings with global teams in an interactive, compliant environment.
He breaks down specific areas where life sciences companies can benefit from using secure virtual immersive environments with compliant LMSs. Some of these include medical science liason and key opinion leader (KOL) relationship building, KOL meetings, physician communication, training, simulations, and data visualization.
