JBJS Clinical Classroom: A Better Path to Orthopaedic Proficiency

In 2017, JBJS partnered with NEJM Group to launch JBJS Clinical Classroom—an adaptive learning platform that meets the unique learning needs and requirements of orthopedic training programs worldwide. Clinical Classroom identifies gaps in individual users’ knowledge and assesses their self-confidence in 11 orthopaedic subspecialties. Curated by orthopaedic experts and powered by leading-edge learning technology, Clinical Classroom has quickly become a leading platform for helping orthopaedic residency programs to:

  • Identify residents’ knowledge gaps through detailed reports and monitoring
  • Improve residents’ knowledge and critical thinking skills
  • Keep residents up-to-date with the latest and highest-quality orthopaedic findings
  • Better prepare residents for OITE and board certification exams

To meet changing user needs and implement technological advancements, JBJS has improved the overall user experience in Clinical Classroom. These significant enhancements were made possible by upgrading from the original NEJM Knowledge+ platform to the new Rhapsode platform by Area9.

Highlights of JBJS Clinical Classroom on Rhapsode include the following:

  • Updated adaptive algorithm that incorporates the most advanced adaptive tools for more efficient individualized learning
  • Improved reporting and metrics providing residents and residency directors with a more comprehensive dive into individual and group performance
  • In-platform coaching delivers helpful tips tailored to resident progress and confidence as they progress through subspecialties
  • Enhanced look and feel: The clean, modern Dashboard and improved navigation allow residents to interact with and move effectively throughout the product for optimal learning
  • And so much more

Thieme to Market JBJS Clinical Classroom in South Asia

The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Inc. and Thieme Medical and Scientific Publishers have joined forces in a 5-year agreement that grants Thieme exclusive rights to market and license JBJS Clinical Classroom on NEJM Knowledge+ in South Asia, including India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and Nepal. JBJS Clinical Classroom is an adaptive system for orthopaedic learning that individualizes learners’ experiences as their knowledge, skill, and confidence develops.

Throughout the Indian subcontinent, Thieme representatives will demonstrate and promote the many unique features of JBJS Clinical Classroom to orthopaedic residency programs, hospitals, medical schools, and pharmaceutical companies. Those features include:

  • Regularly updated, evidence-based content that is peer-reviewed by subspecialty content experts and approved by Clinical Classroom Editor Christopher Chiodo, MD
  • Custom algorithms that direct learners away from subjects in which they are proficient and toward weaker areas until all content is mastered
  • An automated “recharge” function to help learners retain previously learned content and to relearn things they may have forgotten

Thieme is an award-winning international medical and science publisher serving health professionals and students for more than 125 years. A similarly venerable organization, The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Inc. is the publisher of JBJS, the most valued source of information for orthopaedic surgeons and researchers for over 125 years and the gold standard in peer-reviewed scientific information in the field.

NEJM Knowledge+ Module on Pain Management and Opioids

There is little doubt that dramatic increases in prescriptions for opioid analgesics during the 21st century have been a major contributor to the current opioid crisis. Although primary care providers are at the front line of pain management and addiction prevention and treatment, recent research indicates that orthopaedic surgeons frequently overprescribe opioids to their patients. To help support safer prescribing, NEJM Group, through an independent educational grant and with support from Boston University School of Medicine, recently launched a NEJM Knowledge+ Pain Management and Opioids module.

The course, which contains more than 60 case-based questions on this timely and important topic, is available free of charge at https://knowledgeplus.nejm.org/pain-opioids. The activity conforms to the FDA’s Opioid Analgesic REMS (Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy) Education Blueprint for Health Care Providers Involved in the Treatment and Monitoring of Patients with Pain.

Many of the case-based questions in the module are geared toward primary care physicians, but approximately 50% of them deal with managing pain associated with musculoskeletal conditions. Just like JBJS Clinical Classroom, which was developed with the NEJM Knowledge+ adaptive-learning platform, this new pain management and opioid module delivers each case-based question and then uses an algorithm that identifies individual learners’ knowledge gaps, followed by targeted content that addresses those gaps after each question has been answered.
