How to utilise e-Learning within Health and Social Care
Suitable e-Learning courses are often supported within a Learning Management System (LMS). An intuitive LMS can support different types of learning styles across your Health and Social Care organisation. The best way to utilise a Learning Management System is to produce a Learning and Development strategy to support your staff’s training growth and maintain your care organisations compliance. The fundamental benefit to a Learning Management System is that it helps automate and strategically plan your e-Learning journey, meaning a flawless e-Learning journey for your entire team.
The key benefit to having a Learning Management System in place within Health and Social Care is to support organisations achieve the minimum standard and maintain compliance for regulatory inspections, such as CQC inspections in England. A Learning Management System will not only benefit Health and Social Care organisations, but also the learner as they can manage their own learning journey, stay up-to-date with Mandatory Training and complete adequate induction training and annual refresher training.
