The Learning for Saving Lives Alliance

Laerdal Medical and Lippincott Williams & Williams (LWW) partner to improve healthcare training. The "Learning for Saving Lives" alliance will initially target undergraduate programs of nursing, medicine and the health professions, and will seamlessly integrate curriculum offerings from LWW, part of Wolters Kluwer Health, with simulated patient case solutions from Laerdal.

"Educators have long been requesting the integration of simulation and classroom content," says Clive Patrickson, Global Vice President at Laerdal Medical," and when combined with PC based simulations and LWW's DocuCare EHR system, they will have new power to transform healthcare education in their hands.  This way, we believe that the alliance will greatly enhance learning to help save lives."
