The NovEx Experience
Content in each NovEx module is based on the latest evidence-based, cost-effective, and clinically relevant practices. NovEx modules focus on salient and essential mission-critical content. NovE-Cases accompany the lessons to compel learners to use knowledge as it is gained, develop clinical thinking and reasoning, use good clinical judgment, and ensure safety in high risk and context-specific situations. NovEx modules actively engage learners to be immersed "IN" each situation to think and act like a real clinician. Unlike most educational courses, NovEx modules are based on highly interactive, "unfolding" patient situations.
Short digital lessons focus on the essential clinical and scientific content about a particular subject. Animations demonstrate and visually reinforce how to clinically use the concepts learned in the NovE-lesson.
All NovE-lessons are updated every six months by content experts to reflect the latest quality, evidence-based and cost-effective practices.
Learners immediately use the knowledge learned from the NovE-lessons by practicing on over hundreds “unfolding” patient cases, called NovE-cases. Upon entering the virtual patient room, Learners are challenged to evaluate the patient’s clinical situation using all available information, attend to patient trends, respond to clinical changes, identify problems, and solve them using the highest priority interventions. Learners develop the essential habit of evaluating patients after each intervention. They instantly see the results of their interventions and can make adjustments accordingly. This highly interactive process engages learners to develop clinical reasoning and imagination skills – both habits of practice that are essential for developing expertise.
Testing & Evaulation
NovEx employs two types of testing. Multiple choice assessments evaluate whether the learner acquired critical knowledge needed to care for patients. Second, test NovE-Cases assess whether the learner knows how to use that knowledge in the right patient at the right time. NovEx allows tracking each learner's clinical thinking and reasoning in the practice and test NovE-cases to assist in better educating the learner.
