How2 use this site
- If you’re lucky enough to have two screens available, watch the How2 videos on one screen and have the target software programme (e.g. EMIS or Docman) running on the second screen. Pause the video whenever you wish and practice the functionality on the actual software. When you do, always remember to use dummy patients to practice on.
- Use the Search boxes to search for Role-related content, Theme-related content or search by Keyword.
- The search function will create a Bundle of videos relating specifically to your selected tag or keyword and display all the videos along with a status to indicate which ones you have already watched, or partially watched.
- Clicking on each video will open a time-stamp list of the content of that video. You can then jump to the exact point in the video that a specific function is covered.
- Videos can be watched in any order, and you can watch them as many times as you wish.
- You can pause midway through a video and return to it at a later time.
- Alongside many of the videos you will find supporting documentation that you can download if you wish: A transcript of the video, or a set of validation exercises to help you test your knowledge and understanding of the content, for example.
- Keep an eye on the ‘What’s New?’ section which will highlight any new content, and also provide any recommendations specifically for you, based on your role.
