And how do you feel when something falls through the cracks? Frustrated.
Understanding your learning style may be the trick to get information to “stick”.
Auditory learners usually understand spoken instructions well. So they read out loud, hum to themselves when bored, and can’t keep quiet for long. If this is your learning style, you will retain information better if you listen to training videos, read flashcards out loud, and have someone quiz you.
Visual learners absorb information best through pictures or graphics. They can get easily distracted in busy environments. They usually are good spellers, use color while studying, and like quiet time. People with this learning style will benefit from re-writing the information, drawing pictures, graphs, or story-line progressions, and color coding concepts to promote better recall.
Tactile learners are “hands-on” learners. They generally cannot sit still for long, are not easily distracted in busy environments, and enjoy studying with others. Tactile learners benefit from linking new material to real-world scenarios to make it come alive, and from independently searching for material on a computer to reinforce the information.
In the DME industry, there are so many things to remember. Company protocols... coverage requirements (for numerous items and payers)... billing software nuances... and the list goes on.
For providers of oxygen services, the list continues to grow and include documentation guidelines, CMN requirements, ABN protocols, content billing, and RUL restarts... Whew! My brain already hurts! We know your plates are full and that’s why we’ve put together our If Memory Serves: A Trunk Full of Education bundle that allows each learning style to proceed with confidence on all things oxygen. Get it while it lasts!
