Western Sydney Local Health District - Yum Studio eLearning - training and staff capacity

Western Sydney Local Health District (WSLHD) is responsible for providing primary and secondary health care for people living in the Auburn, Blacktown, The Hills Shire, Holroyd and Parramatta Local Government Areas of New South Wales.

eLearning was seen by Western Sydney Local Health District as a necessary means to save time and staff backfill for their resource strapped organisation.

Western Sydney Local Health District had to find efficiencies for health staff training and implemented a blended learning model for nurses’ clinical competencies. The model involved using Moodle Learner Management System to deliver compulsory knowledge skills training before staff presented for face-to-face assessment. Yum supported staff capacity for creating eLearnng resources for delivery from their Moodle in line with their blended learning model.

Yum trained their team in the accredited eLearning competencies from the diploma in training and assessment(now TAE) each of the 50 participants brought an individual project relevant to their area of training responsibility. After an initial face-to-face induction in West Sydney, Yum's training was conducted entirely online through regular workshop webinars using GoToMeeting. Moodle training was conducted in-house by Western Sydney Local Health District eLearning Manager.

Individual projects spanned training options for management, nurse education and clinical staff.
