Ensuring your healthcare e-learning programme delivers success

2 min reading time

E-learning is playing an increasingly crucial role in the healthcare sector, offering numerous benefits and addressing various challenges faced by healthcare professionals. As NHS Trusts across the UK continue their drive for digital transformation, e-learning can deliver role-based training, automated workflows, improved learning experiences and an acceleration of the onboarding process. 

E-learning offers an ideal solution to many of the professional development challenges faced by healthcare professionals, including lack of time, limited access to the right educational resources, and financial constraints. E-learning can provide a flexible and accessible way for healthcare professionals to learn new skills and keep up-to-date with the latest medical knowledge in a very cost-effective way for the Trust.

Just how effective e-learning in healthcare can be is highlighted in a comprehensive study: Factors Influencing the Effectiveness of E-Learning in Healthcare: A Fuzzy ANP Study (written by Mahdavi Ardestani, S.F.; Adibi, S.; Golshan, A.; Sadeghian, P.) 

Overall, the article suggests that e-learning can be an effective way to provide professional development for healthcare professionals.  The authors present a study that investigates the key factors influencing the effectiveness of e-learning programs and identifies six crucial aspects: 

  • Success: The degree to which the program achieves its intended learning objectives. 
  • Satisfaction: The learners' level of contentment with the e-learning experience. 
  • Availability: The ease of access to the program, considering factors like technology and internet connectivity in remote areas. 
  • Effectiveness: The program's ability to demonstrably improve participants' knowledge and skills. 
  • Readability: The clarity and comprehensibility of the learning materials presented. 
  • Engagement: The program's capacity to be interactive and capture the learners' interest. 

The study emphasises that while all six factors contribute to a successful e-learning program, the most critical ones are success, satisfaction, and availability. This highlights the importance of designing programs with clear learning goals, ensuring user-friendliness and accessibility for remote participants, and ultimately, measuring the program's effectiveness in equipping healthcare professionals with the necessary training and development skills.

In addition, this academic study also highlights the importance of having: 

  • Clearly defined learning objectives for the program. 
  • User-friendly design that caters to remote users with potential limitations in technology or internet connectivity. 
  • Evaluation methods to assess the program's effectiveness in equipping healthcare professionals with the necessary skills. 


The paper concludes by underlining the immense potential of e-learning to bridge the gap in professional development for healthcare professionals. By carefully considering the above factors and with the expert support of an e-learning expert like Hubken Group, e-learning programs can be designed to be effective, accessible, and ultimately contribute to improved healthcare delivery.
