Mosby’s Skills+ combines evidence-based content with competency management functionality

Philadelphia, PA, September 18, 2013

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced the launch of Mosby’s Skills+, an online skills evaluation tool that allows nursing and care professional teams to standardize, measure and document knowledge and skills. Mosby’s Skills+ combines the power of evidence-based content in Mosby’s Skills with the flexibility and user-friendly interface of the Elsevier Performance Manager.

Mosby’s Skills+ offers the ability to customize content and upload new skills, as well as provide detailed assessments, automatic assignments for new and existing employees, and the ability to archive lessons and learning tasks. It also includes 20 free continuing education (CE) lessons from Mosby’s Essential Nursing CE eLearning course. Developed within a framework of regulatory and professional practice standards, the continuing nursing education lessons mirror best practices in healthcare.

“With the exponential growth we are seeing today in patient care diagnostics and interventions, it’s important that nurses and care team professionals have ready access to the best evidence-based tools, evaluations, education, and training,” said Cindy Tryniszewski, RN, MSN, Executive Director, Clinical E-Learning, Elsevier. “With Mosby’s Skills+, nurses and care team professionals not only have access to over 1,200 skills and procedures but they also have the ability to assign, assess, and administer evidence-based learning across the care teams."

Useful for seasoned nurses as well as onboarding new staff, the Mosby’s Skills+ content is designed to emphasize evidence-based information in an interactive format.
