Over the years I’ve noticed that IT training isn’t done well, and that people don’t get the best out of the software in General Practice. There simply aren’t enough IT experts out there.
Too often training on software solutions is provided when they are first installed, but with turnover of staff and the general passage of time, skills are lost and the less commonly used functions, which may be extremely useful to know about, are forgotten as we press ahead getting the day job done.
It took a long time to learn all the hints and tips I know, and looking back I wish there was a better source of information that could have taught me sooner or reminded me of things I’d once known.
I’ve decided to help develop this site as a resource for Primary Care, which provides a mixture of training, tips, tricks and new ideas covering a vast array of the different IT solutions that are in play in General Practices today.
We want this site to be a one-stop shop for General Practice which will include videos designed, created and presented by our own team as well as directions to other video resources that are available from IT solutions providers. If videos are already available, and useful, we won’t reinvent them, we’ll vet and recommend them.
Our focus is on areas that our panel of Practice Managers and other practice team members have told us they need help with. So our aim is to put a range of teaching/training resources on here aimed at:
- people wanting to be experts
- showing you how to get the most out of your software or demonstrating software that might help
All our videos are independent and honest and our aim is to educate and inform.
Your feedback would be really valued.
- What do you find most useful?
- What would you like to see more of?
- What other useful resources can we link to?
If you would like to contribute please contact us.
