The ISOPHARM iLearn training platform provides much needed accredited CPD courses for staff working in Sterile Services and Endoscope Decontamination, encompassing topics to cover all aspects of decontamination, accessible via an annual subscription, online 24/7 which allows them to regularly refresh their knowledge.
Courses are predominantly compiled for Technician level, which aids in providing all roles with much-needed background knowledge. Supervisor level courses, which will expand on topics to support their role and encourage development, are being released later in the year.
The library of online courses is both written and reviewed by industry experts, and professionals from within healthcare decontamination, including front line staff in management roles and AE(D)s. Each topic is broken down into bitesize courses, allowing training to become a standard activity in a weekly work routine. Courses are no more than an hour long, and include content for individuals to read through, followed by an assessment to show understanding of the topic with a pass rate of 80%, all completed certificates are save in the online training records. Department managers have full visibility to oversee their staff’s progress and can access their training records.
Providing staff with regular supportive training is extremely motivational, staff can see they are being invested in and allows them to show development within their role. Staff working in decontamination all want to do a good job, the patient is the focus, and Isopharm iLearn will confirm their knowledge, competency and improve job satisfaction.
