APCR Launches New Educational Offering through AudioEducate

posted: July 10, 2018

The Academy of Physicians in Clinical Research (APCR) is excited to announce the expansion of its educational offerings through a collaboration with AudioEducate. Using new technology for continuing medical education (CME), content will be delivered through the Amazon Alexa platform.

This program is a three-part series on informed consent discussing how ethical principles evolved in clinical research creating the regulations of informed consent, the standards of compliance regulating the drug development process and implantation of informed consent processes in practice.

Each program consists of a brief audio lecture, assessment questions and a short survey. Total time to complete each program is approximately 20 minutes. Michael Koren, M.D., current President of APCR, serves as the faculty for this series.

“I’m excited to participate in this collaboration with AudioEducate,” Dr. Koren said. “This platform will enable our organization to deliver important educational content to our members and position APCR to be a leader with this newtechnology.”

If you do not have an Alexa-enabled device, you can download the Alexa app in the iTunes or Google Play store on your phone or tablet. The Alexa app also works with Bluetooth, so you can even take these programs hands-free while commuting to your practice.

This activity is jointly provided by Potomac Center for Medical Education and the APCR. The educational partner for this activity is Rockpointe.
