Nigeria, Malawi & Philippines in successful trial of World Medical Education’s App/mobile phone/database
Doctors in Nigeria and Philippines and the Ministry of Health in Malawi were able to upload programs including ‘Ophthalmology – Africa’ and ‘Caring for the Sick Child’ onto their mobile phones and upload the App allowing them to successfully navigate through the programs.
Excitingly they were also able to use the unique continuing education system. The system allowed assessment of the impact of the continuing educational videos with users asked questions before and after seeing the videos – their results were automatically sent by SMS and immediately seen on the central database. No Internet access was required.
