- Everyone that attended was amazingly passionate about education with a strong desire to make learning something new safer for the learner, the educator and patient.
- We need to build more tools to support effective use of our software by the clinical educators. We focus so much on the learner and forget that the educator is responsible for integration and implementation of novel software solutions despite often being overworked. They can use the support!
