A second CPD webinar: a dose of lunch time learning


Professional Development Team and Dr Nick Niven-Jenkins preparing for the lunchtime webinar

Underwriters and Claims Assessors from some of the top UK insurance and reinsurance companies benefitted from another successful webinar ran by Cardiff University as part of their on-going Medical Underwriting CPD offering to the insurance sector.  All 100 places for the webinar were taken; with some companies showing it on a screen in their offices so a number of staff could take part together.

Feedback from the participants showed the webinar to be a big hit, with one delegate stating it was “very enjoyable, informative and discussed conditions in a way which was straightforward and easily understandable”.

To ensure the webinar had minimal impact on an organisation’s day-to-day operations it was organised over a lunch hour.  Participants heard a presentation on Cardiology, specifically Arrhythmias including symptoms, prognosis, and treatments.  Participants were invited to take part in interactive polls and ask questions that were answered by the presenter during the session. Key points were tweeted during the session and a full recording of the webinar was made available to download.

Following the success of these webinars a third is being planned for December 2013.  The topic will be chosen based on the feedback received from those who took part and responses to Tweets.

Business Development Manager, Clare Sinclair said: “Cardiff University has an award winning track record in providing specialist medical professional development for the insurance sector.  The courses we run are delivered by using a mix of online and face-to-face teaching so delivering the webinar seemed an appropriate method to use to introduce learners to the type of teaching to expect on our courses and the education experience they will have.”

Cardiff University has over 10 years’ experience at delivering specialised Continuing Professional Development courses for the medical insurance sector.  Previous courses have greatly impacted the organisations that attended via cost savings from reduced cases being referred to external medical experts, reduced errors and improved quality of decisions, quicker decision making, improved customer service, increased delegate confidence, and increased confidence from reinsurers.
