EMPOWERED online medical education is an initiative from The Med Collective

Paula Woodward, of The Med Collective, was inspired to create EMPOWERED after working for many years in healthcare communications in Australia. Paula’s idea has been brought to life through collaboration of The Med Collective with their strategy and digital partners (Blueberry Healthcare Communications and JHL digital, respectively). EMPOWERED is designed based on the vision of delivering high-quality medical education to everyone involved in delivery of healthcare, in order to improve outcomes for patients in their care.

The team’s experience in developing and delivering online learning platforms and content means they have seen the good and the bad of online education. What works, and what doesn’t, from clunky eLearning platforms that fail to meet individuals’ needs or online education that’s hidden/lost behind company doors.

EMPOWERED brings together the latest thinking in user experience, digital design, content strategy and adult learning, employing its unique collaborative approach to solve many of the problems seen in the online medical education space.
