Industry training organisation Careerforce has released a series of online training modules in collaboration with the Ministry of Health in response to COVID-19.
The six learning modules, which largely focus on hand hygiene and infection prevention, are available to be accessed through the Ministry of Health’s LearnOnline website.
According to Careerforce, the modules have been developed for all audiences, and offer practical advice that can be used at any point, not just during the COVID-19 environment.
Topics range from how to wash your hands correctly, to how to work as a caregiver for a friend or family member in need.
“We have worked closely with the Ministry of Health for many years, and on a number of initiatives. However, this partnership has been particularly satisfying given the speed and urgency that the learning modules have been developed and released, by both Ministry and Careerforce staff,” said Jane Wenman, CEO of Careerforce.
In March Careerforce developed a series of hand hygiene and infection prevention learning resources, which are able to be accessed for free on the Careerforce website. These modules incorporate sections on COVID-19; what is it and how to control the spread of it.
“As we recognised the severity of COVID-19, and the impact that it would have not only on the health workforce, but on the general New Zealand public as well, we considered what we could do as an organisation to contribute. The development of specific and immediate learning resources and making these freely available seemed the best option,” Wenman said.
