Health Services across Australia are facing growing challenges to deliver the highest quality of training to their staff for both compliance and professional development. One health service in particular is challenging the status quo and proactively developing a range of courses for their 6,000+ staff. Peninsula Health in the southern suburbs of Melbourne comprises Frankston and Rosebud hospitals as well as community health centres and mental health services.
As an Edmore client for many years we have developed, managed and delivered their eLearning content for a wide range of departments from Clinical Systems to Patient records and incident management. Peninsula Health in common with many other Health services has been keen to take ownership and responsibility for course content giving them flexibility and control. Consequently they decided to migrate from the full-service eStats solution to Edmore’s new Learning Portal that offers a more self-service style of learning management system.
The new hosting platform – Upside – enables a range of staff to de defined as administrators, content creators and instructors within the LMS allowing Peninsula to create and distribute their own courses, videos and modules. This reflects the need within the Heath Service to provide smaller and more flexible chunks of learning that fit better with the learner’s time constraints.
Importantly the single learner database provides one record of not only ALL the training provided by Peninsula to their staff but also manages the recognition of prior learning and certificates of a wide range of nurses and agency staff.
As the new Portal is rolled out, Peninsula will be able to manage the skills of staff from both a compliance and a competency perspective.
