E-learning provision extended

As part of an ongoing commitment to empowering staff to understand and use medical gases safely, BOC Healthcare has extended its e-learning provision ‘to give hospitals even more flexibility’ in how they use its training packages and monitor staff participation.

As well as being available through BOC Training’s virtual learning portal, the ‘cost-effective’ courses can now be accessed directly via each hospital’s own learning management system, allowing managers to monitor staff progress closely in real time. Staff can also access content on mobile devices. 

BOC Healthcare said: “Our e-learning solution is designed to allow staff to learn about basic gas safety in their own time, at their own pace. Although it can also be used to support face-toface learning, one of the programme’s greatest benefits is that it allows a larger number of people to undertake the training and ensures that all staff have the same access to the courses, regardless of their location or hours of work.” 

This ‘vocational course’ is targeted at nurses and porters responsible for the safe handling and use of medical gases within the healthcare environment. There are two options available, each specifically tailored to the different roles of nurse and porter, with interactive learning units and short confirmatory tests at the end of each section.
