The aim of this site is to provide nurses and midwives with content to guide them in practice. A recent study conducted at the Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC), Qatar on the impact of eLearning on nurses’ professional knowledge and practice, found that nursing staff can use eLearning at work as an effective educational tool.
Professional development through the provision of eLearning resources provides staff with materials that will support an increase in knowledge, while also helping to attract and retain the most qualified healthcare professionals.
The eLearning Centre is divided into two sections:
- eLearning Short Courses
The short courses are designed to provide information regarding health issues, as well as the protocols to follow, responsibilities of and appropriate responses required by nurses and midwives in order to properly address them. These courses should take about 45 minutes to complete and a certificate is issued upon completion. Every course is internationally relevant and applies to all diseases and in all regions. They are carefully researched to provide current, high-quality, peer reviewed material that is regularly updated.
These courses are developed with the support and partnership of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the World-Wide Antimalarial Resistance Network and the East African Consortium for Clinical Research.
- Other eLearning Links
Under this section, you will find links to additional eLearning resources that are provided by other organizations. They are available online either for free or at a low cost. We recommend these resources as they help to support and enhance clinical research. Although many are disease-specific, their content is often adaptable.
