“Each piece of content will have a time-to-read calculation so you can record how long you spent reading, listening or watching”
At last you can keep track of content you read, watch and listen to on nzdoctor.co.nz.
With the new Capture tool, you, the subscriber, will also be able to record and take notes on the content you consume – whether it’s articles, videoes, podcasts or reports.
Each piece of content will have a time-to-read calculation so you can record how long you spent reading, listening or watching.
And once you’ve “captured” it in your personal account, a downloadable Capture Record will be invaluable when it comes to providing details of the news and education content which has helped you keep up to date with professional developments.
New Zealand Doctor Rata Aotearoa editor Barbara Fountain says when the team first looked at introducing the Capture feature, the thinking was mostly around helping subscribers keep track of education articles and news stories they had read.
“Sometimes you read a great article, maybe about a new practice tool and think ‘I must remember to tell the practice manager about this’ or there’s an education article that will help with a patient you are seeing, or maybe it’s a Dr Lucy you want to read again.
“But as we were building the function we realised, with the changes coming from the college on how GPs will carry out CPD, Capture would be a great way for readers to keep a track of content they find useful in their learning.
“So, Capture has been evolving as we build it. There may be more changes yet,” Ms Fountain says.
The tool is being rolled out on three websites published by The Health Media – nzdoctor.co.nz, pharmacytoday.co.nz and akohiringa.co.nz, the website of He Ako Hiringa, a clinical education platform developed as part of a joint venture to provide education to primary care clinicians on equitable access to medicines.
