NetLearning Announces Launch of Swine Flu (H1N1 Influenza) Preparedness Online Course for Hospital Staff and Community Audiences

NetLearning, a leading provider of e-learning solutions for health care training and part of Cengage Learning, today announced a new Swine Flu (H1N1 Influenza) Preparedness course addressing the critical topics of pandemic preparedness specific to the recent global outbreak of the H1N1 Influenza virus. This course covers the complete range of topics needed to effectively understand and protect against Swine Flu, including information on identifying the symptoms, details on how the virus is transmitted, treatment options and protection measures for health care workers and community members.

Unique to the market, NetLearning’s course specifically addresses Influenza H1N1 and is not a generalist pandemic outbreak awareness course or a repurposed Bird Flu course. The course provides health care workers and community members with a working knowledge of the basics of Swine Flu. The course focuses on the prevention and transmission of this infectious disease, and provides guidance for protecting the health care worker from infection while providing care for their ill clients. It also provides guidance for protecting community members from infection and tips for protecting yourself and others.

“NetLearning’s ability to quickly respond and appropriately react to critical health care training needs is at the core of our mission to improve the quality of patient care through dynamic and engaging e-learning content,” said Cathy Esperti, Vice President, NetLearning. “The new Swine Flu course will enable our clients to extend this much needed training to their staffs and communities as a testament to that mission.”

NetLearning focuses on improving the workflow of health care facilities by developing high-quality training and continuing education e-learning activities. All of NetLearning’s courses are written and then peer-reviewed by health care subject-matter experts and are developed to the highest standards of e-learning design, so learners will have a more engaging and rewarding learning experience leading to better retention of course information.
