Streamlining Your COVID-19 Processes in ACEMAPP

Streamlining Your COVID-19 Processes in ACEMAPP The COVID-19 pandemic has been difficult for many, in countless ways. One area that should not require added stress is managing your clinical education during the pandemic. Schools and clinical sites nationwide are reviewing what makes sense for their own organization, and ACEMAPP is here to help those who would like effective ways to manage the new obstacles they face. We're proud to be working with a number of health care students and professionals who are adapting to new processes as the pandemic continues to affect clinical education. Below, you'll find some ways our members have used ACEMAPP to streamline their COVID-19 processes.    Tracking the COVID-19 Vaccine A number of our partners have begun tracking the COVID-19 vaccination series online for their students, staff, volunteers, and/or faculty. There are a number of benefits to managing the COVID-19 vaccine in ACEMAPP, including: Going paperless: Individuals may submit proof of vaccination online through paperless document submission. They may simply take an image and upload it or enter a completion date, depending on your organization's requirements. Monitoring completion in real time: As soon as individuals upload their proof of first and/or second dose (if applicable), coordinators will be able to view their document(s). If you set the vaccine as required, students will not be able to attend rotations until they have completed it. If it is not required, you will still be able to see who has received vaccines for your own records. Avoiding duplication of work: Individuals can store their vaccine information for their own records while also making it available to their school and/or clinical site(s) who may also be tracking the COVID-19 vaccine.     Sharing COVID-19 Updates Keep partners in the loop by posting your current COVID-19 policies in your ACEMAPP profile (see instructions at acemapp.org/kb/369) and then posting an announcement with the link to your profile. You also have the option to send emails to colleagues and students via broadcast messaging (see instructions at acemapp.org/kb/66).   Scheduling Vaccine Clinics Vaccine clinics are a great way to get additional support from students while allowing them to receive clinical hours. Clinical sites or schools who lead vaccine clinics may schedule rotations for them in ACEMAPP. Students may then complete any items the clinic may require (i.e. immunization history, waivers) and apply for or be assigned to those rotations. Students may participate in varying levels of help, from paperwork to administering shots, based on the needs of the vaccine clinic.    Documenting Virtual Hours If your students are attending virtual rotations or simulation labs, schools may enable ACEMAPP time logs to track hours spent in those experiences. Students may then display these experiences in their virtual ePortfolio, should they choose.   If you would like to implement any of the above best practices in ACEMAPP, please contact us at support@acemapp.org or 844-223-4292.

4 Ways Health Care Recruiters Can Leverage Clinical Education to Improve Talent Sourcing

Schools and clinical sites work together throughout the clinical education process to ensure students are well prepared for their future careers in health care. Clinical rotations afford students the opportunity to not only see what a career is like in their desired field, but also to see what the work environment is like at a particular clinical site. Rotations also provide clinical sites with the opportunity to see which students may be a good fit for their organization.  The ACEMAPP team is working with a number of innovative clinical education and human resources professionals who are working together to improve talent sourcing and recruitment. Through this work, our team has identified 4 ways health care recruiters can leverage clinical education improve the talent sourcing process: 1. Distributing Evaluations Evaluations are a great way to collect information from students, faculty, staff, and preceptors during and after clinical rotations. They allow you to see whether students are having positive experiences, which preceptors are doing an exceptional job, and whether there are areas for improvement within the clinical education process. Evaluations can also be assigned to staff and preceptors in order to get their honest feedback about a student’s performance. 2. Connecting with Candidates at the Right Time While many students do not apply for jobs until they are about to graduate, or once they have officially graduated, we’ve found that many students begin looking at job opportunities early on. By having your job opportunities posted and available to students before graduation, they may begin to understand what is required for their ideal job. They also have quick access to “express interest” in specific jobs so they may connect with a recruiter one-on-one. Sharing job opportunities with candidates while they’re still students allows you to be at the top of their mind when it comes time to apply for opportunities.3. Working With Schools Schools want their students to find quality job opportunities after graduation that will fit their long-term goals. As you begin to post new jobs in ACEMAPP, consider contacting your local school partners (via the Coordinator Report or Forums) to share your opportunities. 4. Storing Data Information on great candidates should be available and accessible indefinitely. That way, if you receive an application from someone who attended clinicals at your site several years before, you may review their clinical rotation history, evaluations, professional references, and any other pertinent information.       We encourage you to consider ACEMAPP Careers for your talent sourcing needs.
