DDA completed this comprehensive video-based eLearning platform for APIH in cooperation with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control in 2018. APIH represents the interests of hundreds of medical schools and institutions and hundreds of thousands of individual healthcare students, educators, and practitioners. This eLearning course was designed to educate learners on how to respond to public health emergencies within an interprofessional context from the perspective of nurses, doctors, and public health representatives. The course content is comprised of over an hour of live action video that tells the story of an outbreak of foodborne illness through one man, a mother and child, a nurse, a doctor, and public health workers, with all casting provided via DDA’s Actors’ Network. All filming was done with custom set designs at DDA’s own video studios, including an outpatient exam room, three offices at a local health department, and a conference room for the final discussion of the entire case by all involved healthcare providers.
The eLearning course includes additional information and interactivity for greater topic depth and user engagement. Video clips are separated by action stops comprised of questions and interactive presentations of information that require users to click to reveal additional information about specific topics. Citations and references are placed below most of the video clips and action tops, and references can be saved to a personal library for later review at the click of a button, which can then be downloaded and/or printed.
The course content is preceded by a learner evaluation that gauges users’ existing knowledge of public health emergency response topics. After completing the video-based eLearning course, users take another learner evaluation, with those completing with 80% or more accuracy being granted certification. A module evaluation allows users to provide comprehensive feedback on their learning experience, and a personalized certificate of completion is then awarded. The platform also includes metrics on user performance filtered by school and educational credentials, plus detailed reports on each individual’s performance. Module evaluations are reported individually and in aggregate to gauge overall reception of the course. The comprehensive medical eLearning platform has been enthusiastically received and is sure to benefit a wide range of medical students seeking to understand interprofessional practice in public health.
