A Case Study Exploring a Multi-Disciplinary Collaborative Initiative to Use e-Learning to Meet the Professional Learning Needs of Health Care Practitioners

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter explores the early development stages of an interactive
interprofessional online learning package that updates and supports health and social care professionals who mentor students in practice settings. The package aims to present content that is relevant and useful to fourteen different disciplines accessing it. A benefit of online content is that learning can be undertaken when convenient for the mentor, 24 hours a day-7 days a week, with the facility to stop and restart as needed. Additionally the package is constructed so both individuals and groups can use it; this both meets a regulatory body’s requirement for having a
face-to-face update every year, and provides support for interprofessional
learning between mentors from different disciplines
