Informatics Merseyside works closely with partner organisations to deliver a modern training service and has a team of experienced training staff, with experience of working with over 90 clinical and non-clinical IM&T systems.
The service provides IM&T training to staff on all aspects of their clinical or corporate business systems via one-to-one sessions, group, or classroom based training. The service includes the production of training guides and documentation, as well as Training Needs Analysis to support all training delivered.
A wide variety of training courses are provided including:
The IM&T Training and Development Service works with business change and information/Data Quality departments to ensure that a comprehensive training service is provided that ensures all staff have the appropriate knowledge and skills to use technology to retrieve, capture and analyse data from IM&T systems securely and effectively.
The team also works closely with the Informatics Research and Development Service which is heavily aligned to the Quality, Innovation, Productivity and Prevention (QIPP) programme to support any training requirements or informatics elements from the nine clinical pathways that have been prioritised as part of this work.
The Training Service works closely with programme and project managers to define and deliver new clinical and non-clinical IM&T systems, developing procedures, templates and proformas to ensure that users make best use of the systems.
Informatics Merseyside Trainers also participate in the evaluation and testing of new or developmental IM&T systems and equipment, making recommendations and/or modifications as required to ensure that they are fit for purpose. Such on-going involvement in the development and testing of new IM&T systems enables trainers to develop training materials and employ methods of delivery that are appropriate to the needs of those who will use the new systems.
As well as providing traditional classroom or on-site training, the service now offers a more innovative learning experience with the use of customised e-learning tools, tailored for partner organisations and their clinical or business units.
e-learning modules are now available for a number of clinical and non-clinical systems, with the following benefits identified:
Informatics Merseyside Trainers undertake Training Needs Analysis of behalf of partner organisations to ensure that all existing and emerging training requirements are identified and that training resources are appropriately and effectively targeted.
The Training Service constantly evaluates and reviews delivery methods and training materials, to ensure that training continues to be effective, up-to-date and consistently of high quality.
A robust training support process has also been developed to ensure that the required skills and knowledge are evenly distributed across the Training Service to provide a fully resilient facility.
