Description:
Background: The delivery of continuing professional competency (CPC) education to prehospital care providers in Ireland has evolved to include online and social media based activities. Paramedics and other prehospital care providers have also indicated their support for further online and social media based CPC activities. As a result, in June 2014 the O’Brien Institute CPC (OBI-CPC) Nights project was founded. This event aims to provide regular, live online CPC events for Irish prehospital care providers, free for all to attend. The medium for delivery is via a live video feed hosted on YouTube. Objectives: The purpose of this study is to describe, characterise and evaluate the content of the OBI-CPC Nights project since its formation, and to evaluate the impact and engagement to date. Methods: Total figures for live attendance at on-site event and at satellite sites were obtained. In addition, total views on YouTube for the recorded event was also obtained. An analytical report for #obicpc was also generated on symplur.com, with a search date from 16th February 2016 (registration date of hashtag) to date, a total period of 6 months. All of these data were combined to generate the results presented. Results: During the study period (June 2014 - April 2016), eight OBI-CPC nights were conducted. These involved 24 speakers, who spoke on 24 topics, ranging from sepsis to trauma to education. As of April 14th 2016 a total of 569 individuals attended the event live, in-person, with an additional 675 that attended satellite sites, and 3354 have viewed the events on our YouTube channel. The hashtag #obicpc was registered in February 2016, and there have been 541 tweets by 11 users, with a total reach of approximately 414,967. Conclusion: The results to date indicate that prehospital care practitioners in Ireland are engaging with the concept of live, electronically distributed CPC activities. The OBI-CPC Nights project has been a success to date with sustained growth evident from its inception.
