Medical Subject Headings (MeSH): Webcast
Webcasts in healthcare are live or recorded audio or video broadcasts that are delivered over the internet. They can be used for a variety of purposes such as education, training, communication, and research dissemination.
Webcasts in healthcare can be used to provide continuing medical education (CME) to healthcare professionals, allowing them to earn CME credits by watching live or recorded webcasts of conferences, lectures, and symposia. They can also be used to provide training and education to healthcare professionals and support staff, such as nurses, on new procedures, equipment, and protocols.
Webcasts can also be used to share research findings and best practices with a wider audience, such as patients and families, policymakers, and healthcare providers in remote areas. They can also be used to disseminate guidelines, protocols, and other important information to healthcare professionals.
Webcasts can be accessed through a web browser on a computer or mobile device. They can be live-streamed or pre-recorded and can be interactive, allowing for audience participation through chat or Q&A sessions.
Webcasts in healthcare can be a cost-effective and efficient way to provide education, training, and information to a wide audience, particularly in a time where remote working and online learning has become more prevalent.
