BMJ Press Release: 14 Nov 2017

BMJ Learning partners with Think Associates to support learning and development for UK healthcare professionals

BMJ Learning, a leading international provider of online CME and postgraduate training, has teamed up with Think Associates to help healthcare professionals at UK hospitals improve their knowledge and deliver the very best care to their patients.

The partnership will provide access to BMJ Learning’s Hospital Collection via Think Associates’ bespoke Totara Learning Management System (LMS).

Developed with working medical and nursing staff to reflect real life situations, BMJ Learning’s Hospital Collection offers e-learning that addresses critical areas for hospitals such as priority clinical conditions, safer prescribing, practical procedures, induction and preparing for life on the wards. Multiprofessional teams learn using a mixture of 3D animation, audio, images, text and clinical cases, all peer-reviewed and regularly updated to reflect the very latest guidance.

Totara Learn is a fully configurable Learning Management System (LMS) that allows organisations to manage all of their learning requirements through individual learning plans which reflect their employee’s roles, training needs and objectives. Think Associates have developed specialised enhancements to Totara for healthcare organisations that allow NMC revalidation, clinical supervision and compliance reporting to be effectively managed by the system; meeting the needs of clinical, nursing and professional education teams.

With this integration BMJ e-learning activities can form part of an individual’s wider development programme and organisations will be able to manage, control access and effectively report on compliance via a single learning portal. Totara can be implemented quickly and at a fraction of the cost of proprietary solutions, providing quality and cost effective solutions to UK healthcare organisations.

Louise Crowe, Director, BMJ Knowledge said: “At BMJ, we understand the value that our e-learning modules can provide within a Learning Management System. Combining our high-quality content with Think Associates’ flexible platform gives hospitals an effective way to manage learning and ensure their teams are kept up to date with the latest developments.”
Tim Newham, Managing Director, Think Associates said: “Think Associates have been working with the NHS since 2004 and we have a track record in providing Learning Management Systems (LMS) to meet the demanding needs of people working in healthcare. The clinical workforce, in particular, have complex learning needs that can effectively be delivered at the point of need using this technology, and we are therefore delighted to be working with BMJ Learning to provide evidence-based and peer reviewed online learning modules through Totara Learn to deal with these complex learning needs.”
