Before the COVID-19 pandemic, Aarhus University Hospital, located in the city it is named after, held a “patient school” for patients diagnosed with stage 1 – 3 melanoma who had undergone surgery.  

However, the hospital canceled its in-person classes due to the virus and patients had lost the opportunity to attend live training sessions led by physicians, nurses and other healthcare providers 博彩app软件下载app软件 topics such as the ABCs of melanoma, the need to self-examine their skin to detect a potential relapse of the disease and the importance of sun protection.  

Driving an innovative solution 

The company’s Danish melanoma team, led by Leis Ravn, learned 博彩app软件下载app软件 the situation and quickly engaged with key physicians at the hospital. “We wanted to help them create a new and different way to convey this information to their patients without coming in to direct contact with them,” she said.

The BMS team and physicians at the hospital collaborated and together, they came up with the innovative idea of a “drive-in school” that could accommodate a large number of patients while following social distancing guidelines. They reached out to the local municipality for approval to use a large parking space in the center of the city that would be transformed into a drive-in, complete with a stage and large screen. 

Working for patients 

The response to the program was overwhelmingly positive. Just as if they were heading to the movies, carloads of patients and their families drove in and tuned their car radios to a designated station. As live presentations were broadcast over the radio, they also saw the event unfold on the screen. It followed a talk-show format, with a surgeon from the hospital serving as emcee. 

“This was a first for all of us, and a very captivating way to convey information,” said Ravn. The event was so unique, in fact, that it received prime time coverage on national television.

“Even though they were unable to meet face to face with each other and the presenters, patients and their families were very pleased with the drive-in ‘school.’ It was a rewarding moment for all of us on the team when we saw so many of the patients we work for each and every day attend the event,” Ravn added.  

Said Anders Thelborg, general manager, 博彩app软件下载, “We were pleased to see this drive-in concept very successfully and effectively engage with large numbers of patients.”
