Charles Hill, MD, Medical Director of the Stanford Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit (CVICU) approached the AIM Lab with an idea for a website that would serve as a hub for information on the logistics of the CVICU, as well as helpful articles, lectures and tutorials. After weeks of learner-centered iterative design alongside Dr. Hill, the AIM Lab instructional design team created a resource for trainees that would enable them to effectively contribute to the complex perioperative care of patients from the very first day of their rotation. In Dr. Hill’s own words:
“Collaborating with the AIM Lab to develop the Stanford Cardiovascular ICU Educational Website has been a fantastic experience. Working with Rory and Dr. Chu has allowed us to create an informative and user friendly educational resource for anyone involved in the perioperative care of cardiac, thoracic and transplant patients. We designed the website to allow the user to interact with the website before, during and after their rotation in the CVICU.
I would strongly encourage anyone with an idea of creating an interactive website to enhance students’ educational experience to collaborate with the AIM Lab. The personnel and resources are exceptional, as is the team-based approach utilized throughout the entire creative process.
The team-based approach and enterprising collective mindset are the keys to the AIM Lab’s success. These characteristics allowed us to create a website that I hope will enhance everyone’s experience as they rotate through our service.”
