A new site has been launched hosting PA’s premier eLearning activities for paramedics. The site is user-friendly and provides an innovative platform from which all members can access the online learning activities, as well as keep track of and register for local Chapter events and activities. Several new topics and sources of information have been included and a significant number of additional topics are currently under development.
Paramedics Australasia has recognised the challenges involved in accessing learning opportunities when work patterns and location can make it difficult to regularly attend professional development programs. The PA eLearning platform is a unique solution that provides opportunities for professional development activities at a time, place and pace that suits members.
The eLearning site consists of regularly reviewed and updated contemporary topics that can be completed using either a computer or mobile device eg. tablet/iPad. The topics are a mixture of those developed by PA specifically for paramedics, and links to relevant online learning material provided by external organisations – all of which provide opportunities for development that are targeted to practitioners.
PA is currently the only professional paramedic organisation in the Australasian region that offers an eLearning portal to its members. This exciting new venture has been developed under the leadership of your Board and with the significant voluntary efforts of a number of expert contributors.
