PIONEERING THE EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE

PIONEERING THE EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE

COLLABORATION STRATEGY AND DEVELOPMENT

UNITING AND MOBILIZING ABLE HANDS, BRIGHT MINDS, AND PASSIONATE HEARTS

With nearly 25 years of success in designing and delivering quality medical education, we are trusted educators who identify and close healthcare learning gaps. Once we identify and define those challenges, we ask two basic questions: “How can it best be resolved … and by whom?”

For patients, that means finding out what they can do to feel better and knowing where to go for help. For physicians, considerations center on the best course of treatment and assembling the right care team. When it comes to healthcare gaps, it’s all about finding the smartest approach to removing them and identifying the best people to tackle the challenge.

That’s where Forefront Collaborative comes in. Able hands, bright minds, and passionate hearts help us build and implement initiative strategy, guide us as we research and select suitable collaborators, and instruct us as we deploy resources to drive projects and partnerships forward to successful outcomes.

CUSTOM EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING

BREAKING THE MOLD OF STATIC CME

Nearly 25 years into this endeavor, we continue to apply traditional adult learning principles in new ways to fit the learners’ ever-changing needs and styles. With a flood of daily distractions and competing educational activities, we are acutely aware of the need to create experiences that not only succeed in capturing and keeping learners’ attention, but add critical value to their educational goals. To achieve our desired outcomes, that means engaging learners on their terms and discovering what motivates them: What behavior are we trying to change? How can we use venue, media, and technology platforms to facilitate that change? Equipped with those answers, we design intuitive, creative, and transformative approaches to deliver user-focused, impactful experiences.

APPLIED EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH AND DESIGN

BRINGING EVIDENCE-BASED LEARNING THAT BRINGS CHANGE

The healthcare community’s needs are ever changing. That’s why we actively engage them daily. To keep pace, we pilot new educational approaches, allotting the time and resources necessary to assess and understand what works best and under which circumstances—and we share our findings.

Our work transforms healthcare by bringing evidence-based learning to the clinical practice setting. Through such applied research, and the dissemination and promotion of results, we uncover new ideas that carry a higher likelihood of taking hold in our community. That all leads to improved clinical practices that extend or improve lives. We are raising awareness—and the bar—for our colleagues (and ourselves) via a healthy, robust, and scientifically rigorous exchange of ideas, information, and results.

PATIENT EMPOWERMENT INITIATIVES

UNLEASHING PATIENT POWER THROUGH ENGAGING EDUCATION

More opportunities exist today than ever before for patients to access healthcare information. As you read these words, countless patients worldwide are searching their symptoms to narrow down their diagnosis while waiting to see their doctor. Or maybe they’re posting to a forum recounting their individual experiences or flicking through thousands of health-related apps in the App Store. The downside: Informed doesn’t necessarily mean educated, and equipped does not always equal adept.

On the bright side, the popularity and abundant supply of consumer-focused healthcare tools proves patients want to be actively involved in their healthcare as more of a partner than passive participant. And they want to help other patients. Harnessing this passion, we are committed to educating both patients and healthcare professionals without commercial influence or bias.
