Acute coronary syndromes

  • Diagnosis - tests
  • Local management
  • Drugs available
  • Now
we now have 2 problems coronary syndromes and traditional medical education
We now have 2 problems – coronary syndromes and traditional medical education
  • Passive
  • Variable quality
  • Variable evidence
  • Not up to date
  • Learning things you don’t need to know
  • Not learning things you need to know
  • One size fits all
  • Points driven
  • No training in team work
  • No training in communication skills
  • Training doesn’t change in response to users’ needs
  • People who really need training are least likely to go for it
  • People who don’t need training are most likely to go for it
  • Assessment not fit for purpose

BMJ Learning

Launched as a full service in 2004

  • Learning needs assessment/curricula
  • PDP
  • Learning resources
problem solving assess your learning needs
Problem solving: assess your learning needs
  • Six different types of assessment tool
  • Some involve self assessment, others require input from colleagues and patients
curriculum driven learning
Curriculum-driven learning
  • Junior doctors
  • Vast number of learning needs
  • Show the curriculum
  • Learning resources mapped to the curriculum
your plan and record
Your plan and record
  • A rucksack


  • Automatically records any learning needs discovered by needs assessment
  • Automatically records completed BMJ modules
  • Covers non clinical categories as well
  • Manual input of traditional CPD events
  • Keeps track of learning achieved and deadlines hit
  • It is confidential

Interactive case histories – how much will you remember in one month’s time?
  • preview what you are about to learn (P)
  • ask yourself questions that you would like to find the answers to (Q)
  • read the material (R)
  • recite the material to yourself (S) and
  • then test yourself by trying to recall the facts that you have learned (T).

“Excellent learning resource”

“ Great and just in time for me”

“I now realise my knowledge deficits”

“I will change my practice in light of this learning resource”

the evidence have you learned something
The evidence - have you learned something?

The pre-test and post-test scores are as follows:

  • Mean pretest score 66.2 (24.4)
  • Mean post-test score 94.3 (4.2)
  • Mean improvement in score: 28 (95% confidence interval 25.9 to 30.1, p value < 0.001)
  • Doing the module enabled users to improve their knowledge and skills by a statistically significant amount
an academic exercise or has it affected your clinical practice
An academic exercise or has it affected your clinical practice?
  • 70-80% have changed their practice or confirmed their correct practice as a result of their learning
  • 80% say they will change their practice as a result of their learning
