Internal training and continuing education courses with webinars
Discover why WebinarGeek is ECT's webinar platform of choice for internal training and more.
What is Eerstelijns Centrum Tiel (ECT) and what do you do?
The Eerstelijns Centrum Tiel (Primary Care Center) is a collaboration of general practitioners, but also other primary care disciplines. A total of about 200 people work there.
Marc Huls is a general practitioner and practice owner at Eerstelijns Centrum Tiel. He is also a general practitioner for diabetes.
Why did you start with webinars?
We actually ran into it during the Corona crisis. We previously provided our training courses in-house. We have a nice room for that. This was suddenly no longer possible and there was a strong need for training on how to handle the Corona situation.
The problem was the provision of practical training in recognizable circumstances. The biggest question was: "What should we do with our chronic patients?" Including diabetes, asthma, and COPD patients. How do we ensure we maintain that care sufficiently? Without putting them at risk by having them come here. National guidelines were then set up, on how we provide training.
Why did you choose WebinarGeek?
In the field of general practitioners, the technical level is not always that high when it comes to these kinds of new tools. That is why I was really looking for something that is simple for everyone. Even those who normally have difficulty with technology find WebinarGeek easy to use.
It fits well with our innovation story.
We have noticed the role webinars can play in an accessible knowledge transfer, which fits well with our innovation story and will certainly continue after the Corona crisis.
What is your favorite WebinarGeek feature?
The poll is particularly important. This provides more connections between your colleagues (the viewers of the webinar). You keep them on track and increase interaction. A poll really invites people to actively participate.
What is your most important tip for anyone who wants to start hosting webinars?
In our mind, a webinar was really something for the pros. You didn't start that as a small center. This couldn't be less true! It is actually very easy to do. The app guides you through it step by step.
In addition, it is important that the presenter uses a stable wired connection.
