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.

Improving Pediatric Sepsis Protocols

Children’s Hospital Colorado (CHCO) has spearheaded a sepsis quality improvement initiative focused on improving early detection and effective management of sepsis. The goal was to use training to support clinicians’ quick, confident, and correct decision-making when pediatric sepsis is or should be suspected.

Sepsis: A Study Involving 1,051 Nurses

This sepsis study was conducted by a large US health system concerned with high rates of sepsis. Participants, 1,051 nurses, were asked to take an accredited, evidence-based, 29-question sepsis knowledge and performance course on Amplifire’s confidence-based e-Learning platform.

C. difficile Case Study

Clostridium difficile is a gram-positive, spore-forming bacterium that causes serious disease ranging from diarrhea to potentially lethal pseudomembranous colitis. The rate of C. difficile infections (CDIs) has been rising steadily since 2000, complicated by the emergence of virulent new strains. One of the major risk factors for development of CDI is exposure to antibiotics, which alter the normal gut flora.

Reducing Pressure Injuries in Hospitals

Amplifire found a significant amount of confidently held misinformation (CHM) around nutrition factors, distinguishing pressure injuries and IAD (Incontinence Associated Dermatitis), and other environmental factors.

Sepsis

Our first-of-its-kind national hospitalist sepsis study was designed as a clinical intervention using the Amplifire training tool, which delivers a groundbreaking learning experience and advanced analytics. The goal was to acquire data on what doctors and nurses know about sepsis. Can they recognize sepsis at an early stage? Do they know the evidence supporting treatment guidelines? Are they confident about how to respond?
