Learning can be counterintuitive. Professor Robert Bjork at UCLA uses the term “desirable difficulties” to refer to conditions of learning that feel worse but wind up being better. Recognizing that challenges during learning don’t necessarily indicate that someone is struggling – and can instead indicate the exact opposite – is essential for doing what’s best for your brain, yourself, and any learners whose training you oversee.

Obstetrics Case Study

When things go wrong in obstetrics, the reasons are often unclear, lack of knowledge is frequently the root cause. Errors in clinical judgment were cited in 77% of more than 800 clinically coded obstetric malpractice cases according to CRICO Strategies. By the end of each Amplifire course, 100% of the clinicians were proficient (confident and correct) on all the material.

Opioids Safe Use and Management Case Study

From 2000 to 2015, more than half a million people died from an overdose. Ninety-one Americans die every day from an opioid overdose. A clinician’s year of medical school completion is highly correlated with their knowledge about opioids. In an effort to combat this issue, AHEC in Charlotte, North Carolina deployed the Opioid Safe Use and Management course to 363 of their physicians in 2021.

Workplace Violence Prevention

25 percent of registered nurses and nursing students reported being physically assaulted. 93 percent of assaults come from patients. UCHealth developed a course that provides clinicians with de-escalation techniques to improve workforce safety and patient outcomes that resulted in a 34% decrease in workplace violence incidents.
