The IDEA platform is utilized by four national infectious disease curricula
Provides ongoing, up-to-date information needed to meet the core competency knowledge for prevention, screening, diagnosis, and ongoing treatment and care of HIV.
Addresses the epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical manifestations, diagnosis, management, and prevention of STDs.
A comprehensive resource that addresses the diagnosis, monitoring, and management of hepatitis C virus infection.
A comprehensive resource that addresses the diagnosis, monitoring, and management of hepatitis B virus infection.
I train and supervise a group of student peer health educators who provide sexual health education & consultation for students on our campus. These modules look like a valuable training tool that I could use to expand upon my students' knowledge of STDs.
SHS is a FQHC/Community Health Center in rural eastern KY. We are starting a hepatitis C initiative to improve the diagnosis and treatment for our service area.
Key providers to get training to a very rural state - we have been waiting for this!!!! Will be using with Rocky Mountain Infectious Diseases, Casper Natrona County Health Department to start with and working to bring others on board.
benefits these three core groups
the IDEA platform provides a rich learning experience for those in a clinical setting to enhance their knowledge and skills in particular domains of infectious diseases
An IDEA account works across all of our web sites.
Offering a tailored experience for desktop computers, tablets, and mobile phones.
Free CME and CNE credits are available.
A uniform user experience across websites utilizing our platform.
the IDEA platform enables educators (e.g. residency directors, clinical managers, senior fellows, and advanced residents) to create learning groups to track progress of their learners
A single place to manage groups of users (e.g. learning groups, training cohorts, student clusters).
Quickly view progress and scores of groups of users or drill down into the progress and scores of individual users.
Identify knowledge gaps and view knowledge gains over time for both individuals and groups of users.
Dr. David Spach's team at the University of Washington developed the IDEA platform to support robust curriculum design for large-scale infectious disease initiatives led by Academic and Government partners
All of our contributors are experts from national universities.
All funding received from U.S. government grants.
Access to world-class expertise in curriculum design and clinical infectious disease management.
Efficient back-end tools for subject matter experts to update content in real-time, ensuring updated material across the curriculum as knowledge changes over time.
Written core concepts, hands-on-activities, check-on-learning questions, question banks, expert opinions, etc.
Opportunities for knowledge assessment of individual groups and programs through pre and post testing.
[this platform] has been the foundation of our California Department of Health-funded HCV in Primary Care initiative. Using the curriculum both for bedside teaching, reference, and individualized self-study, we have trained primary care physicians in HCV management and have vastly increased our treatment capacity. I have been particularly impressed with the speed with which new medications and guidelines have been incorporated on the website. HCV treatment has been a rapidly evolving field, and www.hepatitisc.uw.edu has kept pace with the latest advances.
For our large scale, CDC-funded Test-and-Cure HCV initiative we used this platform to train providers and expand the number of active treaters across King County. The value was being able to ensure knowledge baselines across different institutions (community clinics, public hospitals, HMOs, public health departments) with a flexible delivery model.
While the contributors for each project differ, our core team responsible for all projects is based out of the Department of Medicine at the University of Washington in Seattle, and consists of
