Online NAS Training

Vermont Oxford Network Launches Online NAS Training

We are pleased to announce an exciting new learning opportunity with the introduction of our online Learning Management System (LMS). Learning modules in the form of short informative talks (15 minutes or less) delivered by world-class faculty will assist centers and newborn care units to improve the quality, safety, and value of care given to newborn infants and their families. With adaptable technology, including use of hand-held devices, these modules are available 24/7 for individuals and/or teams to use to gain knowledge and receive CME or CNE credits.

The Learning Management System also offers center level reporting options to enable local leaders to track the progress and use of their team members, coaching them towards a strategic goal.

Beginning in May 2015, the iNICQ 2015 Collaborative – A Universal Training Solution: Improving Outcomes for Infants and Families Affected by Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome is using this technology to enhance their work on NAS. We currently have over 4,500 enrolled learners who, supported by the Learning Management System, are provided with the following:

  • 17 “NAS Micro-Lessons” each of which takes approximately 15 minutes to complete
  • Continuing Education credits awarded for each module
  • Access to the modules from any internet-enabled device 24/7
  • Final completion deadline: March 31, 2016

After 85% of enrolled team members have completed the training, centers will be designated as a “Vermont Oxford Network Center of Excellence in NAS Education and Training”.

During 2015, the LMS learning is only available for centers registered in the iNICQ 2015 Collaborative; however, beginning in 2016 the LMS will expand to include other VON collaborative centers.

If you are interested in more information or would like to enroll in our iNICQ 2015 Collaborative, please contact Pam Ford email: pford@vtoxford.org.
