Orientation and onboarding requirements can vary greatly, depending on your business. A hospital must provide caregivers with very specific education before they can care for patients. Orientation is a long process that can require weeks or months before the caregiver is fully comfortable in his or her role.

Participants in this case-study session will learn how dedicated online resources were set up to assist new clinical hires and existing staff in referencing the information needed for patient care and education. You’ll learn how the hospital set up a Nursing Portal SharePoint-site as a performance support and eLearning tool, as well as a comprehensive information and resource repository allowing the staff to learn and professionally develop at their own pace. Time spent in lecture was reduced, allowing more time to focus on the essentials.

In this session, you will learn:

  • Why utilizing in-house resources provides a better, safer healthcare environment
  • How to structure online resources so your new hires and staff can optimize them
  • How utilizing an online environment in addition to live sessions provides a richer, more comprehensive orientation
  • How you can use a portal as a tool for supporting orientation as well as a resource for experienced staff

Audience: Novice participants should have a basic knowledge of instructional design; a healthcare focus is helpful but not required.
