Identify the potential of making a considerable difference in standardising healthcare providers skills and standards.Update and refresh healthcare providers on the latest standards and evidence based protocols with a growing range of modules.
The platform is facilitated using PulseWeb® learning technology, a web-based learning environment centered on individual learning processes in the context of an organisation. The concept combines the different roles which are involved in effective development of skills.
These processes can all be created, followed and reported, establishing an educational infrastructure for continuous learning in, and between, organisations. The platform provides a management tool that enables HR and management to keep track of what their staff know, and more importantly – what they don’t know. This information will assist in planning the needed modules to fill the gaps and progressively develop their staff in an efficient way.
Less time in the classroom and more time in the ward! The platform has the added benefit of keeping track of CPD points for the staff and expiry dates of points. The overview allows management to keep track of what their staff is learning and how they are progressing.
All modules are available online, and is accessible from desktop computers, tablets and smartphones. The modules are based on blended learning, a combination of traditional and web-based learning.
Prof Portal Africa is introduced by a consortium of partners consisting of Noordhoff Health from the Netherlands, Cape Orange Intercultural Connections and Professional Emergency Care.
