As the year comes to a close, I would like to take the opportunity to reflect on all the hard work that has been carried out by our organization and everything that we have achieved throughout the year.
We are proud of the fact that our education solutions have enhanced knowledge among healthcare professionals (HCPs) by improving access to balanced, credible, and up-to-date medical education where there is an unmet need. Our Patient Advocacy Team have also ensured that the patient voice is represented throughout our work and improving patient outcomes will always be at the forefront of our educational work.
With the launch of two new hubs (Lupus Hub and Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis Hub) and hosting three CME accredited online events, we have reached new audiences and enhanced our offering to time-stretched HCPs. We also launched our new patient program, Know ALL, which is a global education and awareness initiative that provides patients and caregivers with the information, resources, and support they need to deal with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
As our educational content and engagement with our outcome assessments grow across our hubs, we anticipate seeing a strengthening impact on outcomes. Importantly, our outcomes feed back into our needs assessment process, ensuring we are continually optimizing our education. This approach guarantees we are consistently providing effective education, in areas where it is needed, to improve patient outcomes.
Working alongside our Scientific Services Team and Education Lead, our Digital Team have continued to develop and implement innovative improvements to our hubs, such as learning objectives for content, outcomes assessment (a pre‑and post‑content quiz to assess knowledge change), Google Translate (providing hub content in >100 languages), and live drug updates (a notice board for the latest updates in treatment options). We also have some exciting updates for 2023, including educational resource centers (a dedicated learning space for users to learn and test their knowledge), podcast libraries (one central location for the latest and historical hub podcasts), user accounts (personalized content and landing pages for all hub users), and increased accessibility (audio narration for all articles on our hubs).
It has also been so exciting to see our Partnerships Team and medical writers travel across the globe to meet with our supporters and engage with esteemed opinion leaders at key congresses. Most recently, the SES team were in New Orleans for the 64th American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting and Exposition; it was fantastic to connect with our industry partners and provide them with some excellent updates from our hematology platforms, particularly regarding the latest 2022 engagement statistics.
These and so many other successes were achieved during a difficult time, which is why I’d like to also pay tribute to the team at SES, our steering committee members, partners, supporters, and friends, who make what we do so rewarding and impactful in several communities. The dedication and commitment of our team has been exceptional throughout the year and all efforts are very much appreciated.
Finally, I would like to wish you and your family peace, prosperity, and good health throughout 2023. We can’t do what we do without our supporters and SES remain committed to making a difference through education.
We look forward to sharing further exciting updates with you in the new year.
