Article Type: Notes and news From: Industrial and Commercial Training, Volume 43, Issue 3
On-line learning company Aurion has been awarded the contract to develop an e-learning programme for the Irish affiliate of pharmaceutical giant Roche.
The principles of musculoskeletal assessment programme will be developed as part of a blended-learning programme for registered nurses and consultants. The aim is to help them to understand their role in relation to accurate and appropriate assessment of musculoskeletal signs, symptoms and functions.
The rheumatology e-learning programme will include more than two-and-half hours of on-line learning spread over five units: modern rheumatology practice; recognition of joint symptoms; assessment of degenerative joint disease; inflammatory joint-disease assessment; and tools required for joint-disease assessment.
Mark Rodgers, managing director at Roche Products (Ireland) Limited, said: “We are always keen to support the continued medical education of the health-care specialists with whom we work, and it is important for us to identify innovative ways of doing this. This is the first e-learning project developed in this medical area and is also our first experience of such a programme.”
Dr Maureen Murphy, managing director at Aurion Learning, said: “Our challenge is to transform the learning content into a world-class e-learning programme that will engage and delight our target audience in Ireland and beyond.”
