Is healthcare elearning suitable for me?

People have different perceptions  e-learning for health care. Many healthcare workers and organisations have embraced elearning to support healthcare training. However, other health professionals and organisations prefer the traditional classroom training delivered by an instructor. 

Regardless of how we may feel about technology enabled healthcare training, we are now widely using electronic devices in most aspects of our lives. We will all accept that computerised devices have led to vast improvements in our personal and professional lives. In fact, most of us have mobile phones, particularly smartphones, tablets and computers among others. The advent of social media has also increased our use of computerised devices to interact with others across the world. 

Automated healthcare learning environments

Many healthcare organisations have automated most of their processes. One is likely to find electronic devices on hospital wards in place of traditional pen and paper forms. NHS Trusts and other healthcare providers have also adopted e-learning for healthcare professionals. Technological devices have now become very common within the healthcare training environment.  

Improvements in healthcare e-leaning platforms

  • healthcare e-learning platforms are now more interactive
  • interactiveness of learning systems helps to engage users
  • it is now easier to deliver complex clinical modules
  • online learning now facilitates distance learning
  • elearning helps to meet different learning needs
