We're very pleased to announce that PCC Primary Care Commissioning (PCC) has launched six new e-learning courses focus on skills for managing change, all provided by Nelson Croom. They complement PCC’s extensive training and learning event programme with the added convenience of 24/7 access.

45% of healthcare professionals surveyed in December said they prefer to receive support and information through e-learning. Personal development is often sidelined due to workload pressures, but e-learning offers the flexibility to fit around busy diaries.

The new courses are:

  • Managing risk in social media
  • Innovation
  • Leadership skills
  • Managing change and transformation
  • Managing workload
  • Thinking strategically

Julian Patterson, director of marketing for PCC, said: "Customers have told us is that as well as courses that help them develop skills in areas such as finance and project management, they want to acquire the softer and more strategic skills to cope with increasing demands for change and more collaborative styles of working. So as well as the very practical courses we’ve always done, we have now added modules on managing change and transformation, and thinking strategically.”

from our point of view, we’re delighted to support PCC in this initiative. At a time when these skills are becoming increasingly important to health professionals, they have less and less time to spend on professional development. High quality e-learning means they can assimilate these skills when it suits them, and fit it around their work.

The courses join PCC’s existing e-learning, including the popular project management module which has just been updated. See the new courses »
