Microlearning Solutions for Healthcare

Posted by Jon Peters on Apr 5, 2019 5:25:31 PM

We're very excited to announce a new microlearning series from AthenaOnline. Surveys show that over 60% of healthcare workers are suffering from mental exhaustion and burnout. This can lead to potentially disastrous outcomes for both patients and the hospital. Caregivers need to be healthy to provide proper diagnosis and care to others. AthenaOnline decided to do something to help and has been working with best-selling author and coach Don Brown and wellness expert Natalie Peterson to create three separate, but complementary, microlearning-based education programs that cover some of the most critical topics for providers.


This series addresses behaviors and habits that impact our ability to do what the organization needs us to do, avoid burnout and maintain our stamina to care for others. The 3-part program covers nutrition, exercise and mental balance.


This series helps doctors with the mastery of behavioral sciences. This 3-part program provides a new professional practice that ensures the work gets done – and our people (and patients) feel good about it.


The 3rd in our series targets the competencies of patient leadership, by achieving successful clinical outcomes while improving the engagement of our patients. This 3-part program covers incredibly critical competencies in an industry where reimbursements are tied to your HCAHPS survey scores.

Each of these programs is delivered in three sections, one per month, to help support learning over time. They include a combination of microlearning videos, articles and other materials to support development and behavioral change that can improve the emotional and physical well-being of physicians and other hospital staff. The programs can help reduce turnover and costs while improving performance and patient satisfaction. This exciting new series of programs will be available Spring of 2019.
