CareUniversity®delivers educational services to patients and caregivers through live classes, seminars, workshops, educational movies, and professional education courses. These educational resources are available online, through CDs and DVDs, by video conferences, and in-person, in-the-field training.
This educational program provides certification of patients – CareMoms®, CareDads®, and CareKids® – who will learn critical knowledge and skills that will save the lives and financial resources of their family members. This program is a global initiative that embodies the principles of “accountable care.” The knowledge, skills, and competencies that learners acquire will help them minimize overuse, underuse, and misuse of their healthcare.
The focus on the program is to reduce preventable harm and cost to families within 12 months of action. Wellness is a vital element to family health and wealth. However, the focus of our initiative is to address the high-impact, high-frequency, and highly preventable common scenarios that threaten families today, which can easily be addressed by simple solutions that consumers can implement immediately. State-of-the-art multimedia and storytelling techniques are used to create “edutainment” that is fun, instructive, and powerful. The program is a “train-the-trainer” model that is designed to give scale through informal and formal social networks.
We are blessed to have 500 world-class leaders contributing to our research and development work in patient safety and quality. The latest research supports the fact that children actually have a tremendous impact on their parents’ health literacy and awareness of risk. Our global program is designed to educate children from preschool through high school using multimedia and national awareness programs. Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) principles are continually being crafted into high-impact stories, games, and exercises. Kids teaching kids is as much a priority as is parents learning from their children.
We are providing:
A website featuring resources, primarily non-downloadable software, for the purposes of supporting the teaching of children and the process of children mentoring children in the simple basics of patient safety.
Non-downloadable publications in the nature of concepts, tools, and resources to assist in the teaching and development of knowledge in the field of patient safety principles.
Digital media, namely downloadable publications, checklists, and software applications that may be used by mobile devices featuring educational materials designed to teach children the basics of patient safety, with age-specific reinforcement of the science and math content they are learning in school.
CareMoms® and CareKids® programs will be featured in our third documentary, to be released and aired in 2013.
