A digital media e-learning training strategy for healthcare employees: cost effective distance learning by collaborative offline/online engagement and assessment

John Lynn, A. MacFarlane

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    Within the healthcare system, training and continued professional development although essential, can be effected by cost and logistical restraints due to the nature of healthcare provision e.g employee shift patterns, access to expertise, cost factors in releasing staff to attend training etc. The use of multimedia technology for the development of e-learning applications is also a major cost consideration for healthcare management staff, and this type of media whether optical or on line requires careful planning in order to remain inclusive of all staff with potentially varied access to multimedia computing.
