The platform, called EpiTraining, aims to improve both patient outcomes and worker safety. EpiGuard has a systematic approach that includes patient case discussions, live exercises, individual learning, hands-on experience, and sharing of best practices.
Ellen Catherine Andersen, CEO of EpiGuard, said: “Ensuring the safety of healthcare professionals is at the core of everything we do. That’s why we have committed to training solutions and designed a training that goes far beyond traditional product information.”
Building on first-hand experience
The platform, like the EpiShuttle, builds on first-hand experience. Professionals who deal with diseases like Ebola, Covid, Monkeypox and Lassa Fever, as well as chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosives (CBRNe) contaminations, share their cumulative knowledge and experience.
Trainers also cover a wide range of topics from medical considerations during transport, safely securing the EpiShuttle, and decontamination procedures.
“Our team has developed a user experience that makes it far easier to implement EpiShuttles to any facility or organization,” Andersen explained. “Users and other healthcare professionals who may interact with the EpiShuttle to get the information they need, when they need it, on the device that they prefer.”
Four years ago, EpiGuard began offering a two-day live training workshop on-site of customers’ operations. The workshops are still ongoing and are led by highly skilled paramedics with many years of practical experience.
