BACKGROUND: The present paper describes the implementation of a novel, web-based, comprehensive national information hub for trainees in obstetrics and gynecology in Ireland. This was a unique development in the context of an entire medical specialty and was aligned with the communication strategy of the governing professional body. To date, trainee doctors working in Ireland undergo an incoherent and inconsistent new-staff induction and handover. In the healthcare setting, staff integration can have a major impact on the quality of patient care...

BACKGROUND: The need for informatics and genomics training in pathology is critical, yet limited resources for such training are available. In this study we sought to critically test the hypothesis that the incorporation of a wiki (a collaborative writing and publication tool with roots in "Web 2.0") in a combined informatics and genomics course could both (1) serve as an interactive, collaborative educational resource and reference and (2) actively engage trainees by requiring the creation and sharing of educational materials...

The protection of vulnerable people is becoming more understood internationally, and in the UK standards of care for frail older people is now receiving appropriate attention (CSCI 2009, The state of social care in England 2007-2008. Commission for Social Care Inspection, London). Although many people continue to live in their own homes, even when they are very frail, many receive long term care in institutional settings, and are dependent on the standards, practices, belief systems and culture of the staff who care for them...

Medical e-learning can benefit from the new technologies, and pervasive learning resources and tools worth to be introduced in the medical context. Micro-learning seems to be an interesting way for pervasive learning. But it is still difficult to propose pedagogical resources that are built by learners, from meaningful experiments. We conducted an analysis of the exchanges performed by Health care professionals in the hospital in order to understand where and when educational exchanges appear. We analyzed the type of documents exchanged...

Web 2.0: interactive, collaborative tools (wikis, social networks, blogs, virtual worlds) make Internet users active participants rather than simple consumers. Medicine 2.0: mentalities, approaches, and medical practices are changing, thanks to greater access to information, communal exchanges, and the comparison of personal experiences. Beyond the many wikis, blogs, and other collaborative tools, the site stands out from the 2.0 crowd by its graphic representation of the clinical results entered by patients...

Information technology teams in health care are tasked with maintaining a variety of information systems with complex support requirements. In radiology, this includes picture archive and communication systems, radiology information systems, speech recognition systems, and other ancillary systems. Hospital information technology (IT) departments are required to provide 24 x 7 support for these mission-critical systems that directly support patient care in emergency and other critical care departments. The practical know-how to keep these systems operational and diagnose problems promptly is difficult to maintain around the clock...
