WOBURN, Mass., March 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ --HealthcareSource®, the leading provider of talent management solutions for the healthcare industry, today released a free set of 25+ courses to all organizations to help with emergency preparedness and infection control in the wake of Coronavirus (COVID-19). The courses will be publicly available through August 31, 2020.
"We are committed to equipping our healthcare organizations with resources to educate and train their staff during this critical time," HealthcareSource CEO Michael Grossi said. "We are proud to be part of an industry that comes together in times of need to support those who selflessly provide care to the patients and residents they serve."
The free offering includes courses that link to "must-know" COVID-19 information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) with an acknowledgment task that they have read and understand the CDC guidance. It also includes various content from HealthcareSources's eLearning Library℠ that prepares organizations to respond to infectious outbreaks like COVID-19.
A major benefit of the free offering is that learners can track and share course completion transcripts with their organizations to confirm that they are reviewing recommended materials and training. For organizations without a learning management system (LMS) or their own eLearning content in place today, this solution allows them to deliver critical information at scale, giving them the confidence that their staff are trained and able to provide quality care to patients and residents.
"We are proud to partner with HealthcareSource by offering our pandemic flu prevention and support course," Steve McCready, Manager, Partnerships & Channel of Simplify Training, said. "Our course is designed to help organizations prepare for the potential problems we could all face should we be hit with a pandemic."
