We have extended our commitment to medical education in 2013 with the launch of Education and Evidence, a new e-learning platform for surgeons to access and share peer-to-peer educational resources. It follows the success of our Global Wound Academy which has more than 46,000 registered users.
Education and Evidence supports joint repair and replacement, extremities and trauma specialties. The member-based service at www.smith-nephew.com/education/ hosts more than 1,000 videos, articles, surgical techniques, podcasts, training courses, tablet PC apps and iBooksTM. It uses an innovative search engine and self-profiling to tailor content to users, while also enabling the sharing of resources with colleagues.
Through these powerful e-learning tools we are delivering on our Strategic Priorities, reinforcing our position in the Established Markets and extending our reach in the Emerging & International Markets.
