For those who might not know, Procedures Consult is an online procedure reference tool offering easy access to complete details on how to prepare for, perform, and follow up on some of the most common procedures required in today’s hospital setting. Offering high-quality illustrations and multi-media for each procedure, Procedures Consult provides physicians, residents, and students with time-effective, self-directed procedures training and testing.
The Procedures Consult app allows for text and illustration content to be stored on any iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch. Recently viewed videos as well as videos selected as favorites can also be stored on your device, making all of the Procedures Consult content available anytime, anywhere.
Procedures Consult allows physicians, residents, and students to access procedures repeatedly, until they fully understand the procedure. This adds a layer of safety to the medical adage “See One – Do One – Teach One”, which refers to how physicians typically see a procedure demonstrated, perform the procedure and then teach the procedure to a colleague. Physicians typically demonstrate procedures only when patients are available, but Physicians Consult gives its users the opportunity to watch videos performed by the experts, as many times as needed, before feeling comfortable performing or teaching the procedure themselves.
