HORIBA Medical Launches New Online Training Brochure

4 June 2013


Northampton, UK– JUNE 2013 – HORIBA UK Ltd, Medical Division, has launched a new online brochure to promote its e-Learning portal, HeLP, for CPD accredited training. The brochure outlines how e-learning can support haematology and clinical chemistry customers with their training requirements and the benefits of using the portal system. Features highlighted in the brochure include:

  • Individual secure online login
  • Access anytime
  • Interactive content
  • Bite-sized modules
  • Simulation sequences to learn off-line
  • Interactive games and quizzes for all modules
  • Recorded and printable course certification

The HORIBA e-Learning Portal (HeLP) ensures improved accessibility of training for staff, particularly those working shifts and on-call. Customers completing HeLP courses have found them to be highly user-friendly and interactive, making learning interesting and fun. Furthermore, since courses are modular, this has enabled users to complete their training at a time and pace that suits their work patterns.

All HeLP courses are developed and written by subject matter experts within HORIBA UK and tailored specifically to the needs of the organisation, be it an NHS Trust, private healthcare group or university research group, and the staff to be trained.

For example, non-laboratory specialists, e.g. doctors, nurses and healthcare assistants, now frequently use haematology systems, such as HORIBA’s ABX Micros ES60 haematology analyser, in point-of-care environments and often ask for extra assistance. In many such environments, there is often a mandatory requirement for certified evidence of competency.

Ranging from ‘Beginners Guides’ to haematology and instrumentation, through to refresher training for laboratory experts, HeLP courses are a unique off-site service designed to fully complement and integrate with existing training programmes. The web-based training courses have CPD accreditation from the IBMS so upon the successful completion of one of the haematology or clinical chemistry focused e-learning courses, the CPD code will be printed on the final certificate. Participants can then enter this code onto their personal on-line portfolio as proof of learning.
